There are a lot of other materials on the market, but hardwood flooring is still a very popular choice in the Brisbane area. So, why is hardwood flooring so popular among your Brisbane neighbours? Keep reading.
Benefits of Hardwood Flooring
Hardwood flooring adds value to your home.
Hardwood flooring increases the value of your home by more than you pay for it. If you are ever going to sell your home in a competitive market like that in Brisbane, you want every advantage you can get to maximise revenue.
Your hardwood floor will be there when it is time to sell your home. In many demolished homes, the hardwood floor is removed intact. Once it is installed, you never have to replace it.
Hardwood flooring is environmentally friendly.
Timber is a sustainable resource. Because timber stores carbon, it actually has a negative “carbon footprint.” At Narangba Timbers, we only use timber that is ethically sourced. That means that only mature trees are cut and they are replaced with new trees to start turning environmental carbon into timber all over again.
Hardwood flooring is healthy in your home.
Hardwood is the healthiest material you can use for flooring in your home. A new carpet has chemicals such as formaldehyde that can cause serious illness. Carpets are also safe havens for dust, mites, mould, dander and other unhealthy organisms. If you have health problems or allergies, get rid of the carpet and install a hardwood floor. You may be pleasantly surprised.
Hardwood floors are beautiful
There is no aesthetic quite like that of a hardwood floor. It brings nature indoors and you can choose between a plethora of finishes, colours and timber species.
Timber floors are very low maintenance. All you have to do is keep it swept and make sure you don’t damage the finish. If you do mar a hardwood floor, it is easily repaired with sandpaper and some finish.
