Atlanta homeowners love the look and feel of hardwood floors. Can you blame them? With its timeless warmth and elegance, hardwood is a welcome addition to any Atlanta home. Here at Floor Coverings International Intown Atlanta, we help families in the greater Buckhead, Atlanta, Midtown area find their dream hardwood, whether that is a hand scraped hickory or wide plank red oak. Here’s some more information about why hardwood is so popular!


Hardwood has a certain ineffable quality that leaves a lasting impression. One of the oldest flooring types, hardwood flooring reflects the past as much as the present. Although styles and tastes may change, hardwood will always be in style.

Durable and Long Lasting

When it’s taken care of, hardwood can last for generations. Take a look around the historic neighborhoods of Atlanta. Homes build in the 1800s still sport their original oak, maple, and hickory floors. This tough, dependable flooring option is a great investment in your home because of its strength and longevity. It also literally increases the value of your home when you sell.


Simply keep your hardwood floors free of dirt, dust, and debris. That’s it. Some homeowners indulge in the occasional refinish; however, this is only to return their hardwood to its original sheen.


One of the beauties of hardwood is its versatility. There are hundreds of species, however, the most common cover a wide range of styles and colors. Hickory is a great option for rustic, authentic aesthetics whereas white oak is a great choice for modern homes. Hardwood can also be stained to lighten or darken a space, cut into planks of varying widths, and distressed or “hand scraped” to exaggerate its natural character.
