If you’re considering using natural wood as your flooring, you’re making an excellent choice, and we’re here to help you install this into your home. However, if you’re unsure whether it is right for you, we’re here to explain that yes, it is! Today, we’re exploring some of the many advantages natural wood flooring can provide your home, including its easy maintenance and plethora of style possibilities; let’s discover more.

Incredible Durability

One of the stand-out benefits of natural wood flooring is its incredible durability. Its strength and resistance make it one of the most popular choices for homeowners looking to upgrade their flooring as it almost guarantees a long-lasting finish, which leads to other benefits such as cost-effectiveness. Natural wood flooring can be dented or scratched, but not easily. It withstands much more wear and tear than other flooring options, such as laminate, for example.

Easy to Maintain

Natural wood flooring is incredibly easy to keep clean and maintain. Whether you need to sweep, vacuum, mop, or steam clean, natural hardwood will withstand the cleaning and look as good as new with a quick wipe. Not only this, but wood makes for the perfect kitchen or dining room flooring choice, as it is impressively stain resistant compared with other materials, such as carpet. In addition, the easy maintenance makes natural wood flooring a fantastic choice for those with a busy home filled with children and pets.

More Hygienic Than Other Flooring Types

Following on from the benefits of low maintenance, natural wood flooring is surprisingly hygienic and far better for your home than carpets. This is because hardwood does not have the surface to harbour dust mites, ticks, fleas, or allergen-producing spores, meaning allergy sufferers and pet owners will find this flooring type particularly advantageous.

In addition, because of the easy maintenance and cleaning, you don’t need to worry about offensive odours as a result of spillages; you can simply wipe or mop away, and the problem is solved.

Elevates the Look of Your Home

Moving away from functionality benefits and onto aesthetic advantages, natural wood flooring is the perfect choice for those looking to elevate their home’s appearance. This material adds elegance and class to your space as well as a cosy and warm ambience, perfect for family homes. Guaranteed to make a welcoming first impression to guests, many homeowners opt for natural wood to make their homes feel comfortable.

Suitable for All Aesthetics

Another excellent advantage of natural wood floor is that it is suitable for anyone and their preferred aesthetic. Whether your home is all about the country and farmhouse-style feel, or you have a contemporary apartment with industrial décor, hardwood flooring is sure to fit into your space with ease. It is incredibly versatile, with endless options of colours and finishes, so you can choose the one that will make your home feel complete. We’re proud to offer an extensive range of wood and hardwood flooring in Preston and Lancaster, just visit our showroom to see for yourself.

Improved Acoustics

You may not believe it until it is installed, but natural wood flooring improves the acoustics in your home with tremendous results. Have you ever wondered why almost all music studios and dance halls have hardwood flooring? This is why. But don’t worry, you don’t need to own a studio to benefit from the effects of wood. Experience your TV’s audio like never before as your wood flooring reduces hollow sounds and vibrations to provide you with a crisp, clear, and uninterrupted sound.

Creates a Timeless Style

Unlike carpet patterns or laminate colours, hardwood flooring never has, and never will, go out of style. It has been used in homes for centuries, so you can rest assured that if you install this beautiful flooring type into your home, it will look and feel like it belongs for as long as you live there. As mentioned, wood pairs with any aesthetic, so no matter how often you change the rest of your décor, your flooring will fit in perfectly.

A Fantastic Long-Term Investment

The above advantage links to the fact that natural wood is an excellent long-term investment as it complements all décor choices and will never go out of fashion, so you will never need to re-do the flooring again. Similarly, as it is durable and easy to maintain, you can clean it as normal and have flooring that looks as good as new in a matter of minutes. Furthermore, if it gets scratched or dented, you can sand down and seal the wood, and it will look as if nothing happened. Simply pay once for good quality, always on-trend flooring and never spend a penny again.

Perfect for Any Room of the Home

Yet another benefit of natural wood flooring is that it fits into any room of the home, from busy and messy kitchens to cosy bedrooms. Here at Rockform, we even have a selection of moisture-resistant hardwood flooring from our Woodpecker range, which is perfect for bathrooms. So elevate your space and give your bathroom a spa-like feel with natural wood; visit our bathroom showroom in Preston and Lancaster to see for yourself.

Adds Value to Your Home

Finally, when you choose natural wood flooring, you are adding value to your home. When you come to sell your property, you will find that potential buyers are more interested because of your fantastic flooring choice. When purchasing a home, many people would pull up and replace any carpets, as they are often seen as a trap for bacteria and allergens. Because of this, hardwood flooring would be seen as more attractive as it would mean no additional work for the buyer. Additionally, it is also a beautiful feature and a highlighted selling point guaranteed to make your home stand out on the market due to all the reasons listed above.
