The first thing many people notice when entering a room is the floor, and hardwood floors have that “wow” factor that few other floors can claim. Any real estate agent will tell you that the addition of hardwood floors will instantly increase the value of your home. And that’s with good reason. Hardwood has been a beautiful, practical, and long lasting flooring surface for residents of Buckhead, Atlanta, and Midtown for decades. Our flooring experts at Floor Coverings International Intown Atlanta outline five of their favorite features of hardwood floors.

Hardwood floors have an organic look that will always be popular. Few other flooring surfaces can make that claim. Certain carpets, tiles, and linoleum flooring types have gone in and out of style. Meanwhile, the venerable wood look hasn’t changed much for centuries.

Easy to Clean

Wood floors are fantastic for homes with children or pets. That spilled drink? It’s easily wiped up on the wood surface.   The dog hair tumbleweeds that roll through the plains of your living room? A duster or Swiffer will easily take those out of the picture.

Long-term Investment

As we mentioned at the beginning, wood floors will give a spike to the value of your home. If flooring surfaces were stocks, they would always have a BUY label attached. The increase in your home’s value will likely exceed the cost of installation.


Wood floors can outlive other flooring surfaces by decades. With the proper installation and care, hardwood flooring can look brand new after years of use. Our experts at Floor Coverings International Intown Atlanta can offer the best tips for maintaining your wood floor.


Have a scratched or damaged section of your hardwood floor? Wood floors can be sanded and refinished. This is a lot less expensive and more efficient than completely reinstalling a new flooring surface.
