You have a lot of choices to make regarding the flooring in your home. Out of all of them, timber flooring is always going to stand above the rest. While other types of flooring have their own benefits, they pale in comparison to those of a good timber floor. They last longer, raise the value of your property and, when done well, always look better than the alternative. On top of all of that, they’re also much easier to keep clean.
Below, you’ll find just a few of the benefits of a timber floor over other types.
The Look of Your Property
Whether it’s a memorable red Ironbark, a classic brown Kwila, or even the unusual pink Kapur, the look of a hardwood floor is never going to displease.
The natural elegance and prestige shine through no matter what type of wood is chosen for the job, but each have their own unique benefits even outside of the colouring. Each of them has a slightly different aesthetic that can be emphasised for your build if so desired.
With timber flooring, you have a lot of options. Whether it’s for a classic heritage design or something more modern and contemporary, you can find the right wood and style for your property.
The Value of Your Property
More than any other type of flooring, timber is the most likely to raise the net value of your property, especially in the long run.
While other types of flooring will eventually degrade and require a complete replacement, a good timber floor can just be refinished.
If this is a property you’re looking to keep for a while, one you intend to sell, or an old heritage property that you’re fixing up and maintaining, then hardwood is the best choice available to you.
If you’re looking to add a bit of durability to your flooring to help with the longevity, and to further increase the value of your property, then you’ll want to look at a Durability 1 or 2 hardwood like Ironbark, Merbau, or Spotted Gum.
These types can take a real beating, and won’t need any serious maintenance for years and years to come.
