It’s no debate that adding hardwoods to any room helps improve the look and feel. In addition to that, it is proven that adding hardwood to your home helps increase the overall value. In fact, it adds around 3% to your homes value. It is now common, even expected, for hardwood flooring to be in certain areas of your home and most buyers will look elsewhere if it’s not. So not only does it add monetary value, but hardwood flooring also helps to sell your home more quickly(and for more money). Hardwood isn’t for everyone, but if you are looking to get top dollar for your home, then adding hardwood is key. Here are a few other reasons adding hardwood adds value and appeal.
Hardwood flooring will change the look of any room in which it is installed. Depending on the type of hardwoods you choose, you can help the home achieve a one-of-a-kind look. Many homeowners find it easier to decorate when you have hardwoods aside from carpet. Overall hardwood is a classy choice of flooring. It may have more upfront costs but hardwoods will also last much longer than carpet. If you replace carpet two or three times, you have probably broken even.
Contrary to popular belief, taking care of hardwood flooring is easy if done properly. Additionally, if maintained they will last longer than carpet. After a few years of wear and tear on carpet, it will need to be replaced. If you have hardwood, it will just need to be refinished after a few years of wear and tear. (Average is 8 to 12 years before refinishing, depending on routine care and use) Refinishing allows you to keep that same look in your home and will prove to be cheaper than having new carpet installed. You can also change the look with a completely new stain color during refinishing for a fraction of the cost of new hardwood flooring or carpet.
Hardwood flooring will keep a constant feeling, unlike carpet. Overtime carpet will begin to feel stiff and dirty even when it is well kept.
