Why Natural Wood Flooring Is A Timeless Choice

There are several different types of wooden flooring on the market these days and there is a solution available for all homeowners regardless of their needs and budget. However, when compared to modern laminate flooring, natural wood flooring continues to be a popular choice amongst homeowners and it is fair to say that solid wood floors are a brilliant investment. 

Hardwood flooring is made from raw material logs and trunks of the chosen timber, such as oak, and it is available in various lengths, widths and thicknesses. There are multiple advantages to this traditional type of flooring and it really is a timeless choice for any contemporary home. Below we have explored some of the main reasons why natural wood flooring is frequently seen in the living spaces throughout homes.

Classic appearance

You can install solid wood flooring in confidence knowing that it won’t go out of fashion any time soon. Natural hardwood floors have an elegance about them that is both stylish and timeless, and regardless of what your interior design may be like, wooden flooring will perfectly complement the rest of the space. This type of flooring has an incomparable natural beauty and each piece of wood will be unique, adding texture and visual interest to your home. 

Impressive durability 

Timber flooring is both beautiful and practical, and when you look after your solid wood flooring properly, it will last for decades to come. Oak flooring, in particular, is known for its durability and this type of timber has a natural strength that enables it to withstand general wear and tear. There is no denying that hardwood floors require regular maintenance, but due to the fact they are one piece of solid wood from top to bottom, they won’t be flimsy or easily damaged. 

Versatile design 

There is a huge range of different types of natural wood flooring to choose from and you will be spoilt for choice. Not only is there a vast selection of colours and finishes available, but you can lay solid wood flooring in different ways to modernise its appearance or make it more of a design feature. For example, you can install parquet block flooring in geometric patterns, such as herringbone, chevron, versailles and basketweave. You can easily design your natural wood flooring so that it’s perfect for your style and taste. 

Easily adapted

Unlike other types of flooring, you can sand down and refinish solid wood flooring many times because it is so thick. So, should your hardwood flooring start to look tired after many years of use, you can easily revamp it and make it look as good as new again. If you would like a different look, you can experiment with different colours, varnishes and finishes too. You have lots of options to explore to keep your natural wood flooring looking as good as it did the day it was installed and it is adaptable to the times. 

Natural insulator

Whilst some types of wood flooring can be cold underfoot, this isn’t the case with natural wood flooring. Once installed, solid wood flooring is warm to touch and you won’t have to pay out for underfloor heating to be able to comfortably walk around your home barefoot. Of course, wood is a brilliant insulator too, so natural wood flooring can help to keep the rest of your home warm, reducing the cost of your energy bills.
