There is no doubt that hardwood floors can add value and beauty to your home and last for years. However, with so many different variations to choose from it can be difficult to determine which one is just right for you. Here are three types that are excellent choices for any home. Which one you choose is a matter of personal taste and individual needs.
Environmentally Sound Bamboo
With the growing concern for the environment these days Bamboo floors are becoming a very popular choice. Bamboo is not only a renewable resource and environmentally sound but with new technology it is as smooth and flat as other surfaces. When properly sealed and laid it has a rich and attractive look and is extremely durable. It is also easy to stain, and lends itself well to any décor imaginable.
This particular type of flooring can add warmth and charm to any style home from the most modern to a rustic hunting cabin, and is relatively easy to care for and sustain. It is the ideal choice for those environmentally conscious individuals who want the look and feel of a wood floor and love the idea of having it made from a renewable and abundant resource.
These are a great choice for extremely active families and those with pets. It is exceptionally hard and durable, easy to work with and just seems to add something extra that others just don’t have. Teak also runs in shades from pale honey to dark reddish brown making it an excellent choice for almost any decor.
For those who are concerned about the cutting of old teak wood forests, you don’t have to worry. Most of the material comes from plantations that are in business to supply teak specifically for home design and other lumber building needs. These plantations plant and harvest their own trees in order to save the older forests. While teak is still expensive these plantations make it more affordable than ever. It is an excellent choice for families who want a floor that they can live with without worrying about damage from day to day activities.
