There are so many other benefits of natural timber flooring:

Natural Beauty

The aesthetic qualities of wood can never be overlooked. A wood flooring gives your house a certain classy and elegant look that is incomparable to any other flooring object. In addition to this, there are very many species of wood with different grains and colors thus giving you more variety to choose from. Timber flooring works well in any home or commercail setting. Regardless of what furnishing and home decor you go for a wooden floor will blend in and look great. They work especially well for those who like a minimalist or contemporary look.

Adds Value to your home

Real wood floors are very popular and are a sought after feature. Potentially, they add value to your home and make your home easier to sell when you want to move. Ask any real estate agent and they will attest to the fact that timber floors are held in high repute and add real value to mosts homes and commercail buildings. Timber Flooring cannot help but transform your home and thus add value to your home.

Thermal Comfort

Wood being a great insulator, it plays a big role in maintenance of room temperature. Wood prevents flow of heat out of and into the house during winters and summers respectively thus making the rooms more comfortable due to the ambient temperature. Wood is never cold underfoot. It looks warm and welcoming and feels that way underfoot, but will not wear fast as carpet does.

Softer underfoot

Unlike tiles and concrete which tire the feet, wood is softer than them and hence more comfortable to walk on.

Reduced Allergens

Wood are also very much preferred due to the fact that they do not habour dust mites and allergens such as soil thus helping in improving the air quality in a room. They are therefore very useful especially for asthmatic people.

Adaptability of colour/finish

If you buy a real wood floor, you can have the floor stripped and finished in a different colour if you want to. This means that a wooden floor can easily be adapted to fit in when you redecorate.

It is also possible to have patterns built into a wooden floor. Parquet is a popular pattern, but there are dozens of other finishes such as herringbone available. This option turns an ordinary floor into a beautiful feature and focal point for your room.

You can choose between a shiny or a more muted finish, so whatever look you are trying to achieve you can do it with a timber floor. In areas like the kitchen where you may need to mop it frequently a harder more durable finish is possible,

In the winter, you can lay a few rugs over the floor to change the look and feel of your room. With a hardwood floor and a bit of imagination you effectively get several floors for the price of one, because you can change it to suit your new tastes.

Easy to maintain

Wooden floors are exceptionally easy to maintain. All you need to do is to sweep or vacuum them occasionally and run a mop over the floor every now and again to keep them hygienically clean.

Hard wearing

Real wood is exceptionally hard-wearing. Only stone or tiles beat it for durability, but those are both cold underfoot, so are not the right choice for the main living areas of most homes.

Longer Lasting

You can expect a real wood floor to last for literally a lifetime. There are wooden floors in the world that were laid hundreds of years ago and are still in use today. You see them in churches, historical homes and public buildings throughout the world. These floors look wonderful despite the fact that they are literally hundreds of years old, so to say that they are hardwearing is an understatement.

Environmentally Friendly

Timber Flooring is a renewable eco friendly product. The fact that a wooden floor can last for hundreds of years makes them exceptionally environmentally friendly. Virtually no other flooring material can match it in terms of green credentials especially when you factor in the fact that whilst growing a tree clears the air of carbon dioxide and breathes out oxygen. They act as the lungs of the earth.

Whilst growing, trees look beautiful and bring joy to all those who see them. They also provide homes and food for wildlife, insects and birds. Their leaves enrich the soil when they fall and they stop soil erosion, so trees are extremely beneficial to people. Provided you buy a wooden floor that has been recycled or is produced by a grower who replaces each felled tree with one or more new trees you will be helping the environment. Wood captures carbon from the atmosphere reducing green house gases.

Laid by craftsmen

Buying a wooden floor also helps continue the traditional wood working skills of our craftspeople to earn a living and keep their skills alive and available for others to benefit from.
