Wooden flooring of any type has a great deal of advantages. It is hard wearing, practical, and easy to keep clean. It is less likely to cause allergies, and attracts less dust than other alternative floor coverings. Especially useful features if you have children and pets. But with so many types to choose from, how do you decide? Well, here is why I think that choosing solid wood flooring is definitely the best decision.

Solid Wood Flooring – Why Should I Choose It?
It Is Sturdy and Strong
Unlike laminates, solid wood flooring is made of solid pieces of hard wood. These are planks of wood, specially machined and finished to be used as a flooring.
The fact that the floor pieces are made from a solid wood piece means that the resulting floor surface is far more sturdy and hard wearing than when you use other wood flooring types. This makes it the perfect choice for high traffic areas. But it can be used wherever in the home that you want a durable and stylish floor surface. Truly, there is nothing that matches the feel of a solid wood floor.
There Are So Many Varieties
There are a huge range of colours of solid wood floorings available to suit any colour scheme in your home. And also a large number of varieties of wood are available to suit any budget.
Woods from domestic tree species such as oak or beech tend to be lighter coloured and cheaper varieties. But you can also get more exotic woods such as walnut which can be more expensive but feature more dramatic colours and textures.
Whichever wood variety you decide to go for, there are a range of stains, grains and finishes available. You can choose an unfinished wood, or opt for an oil or lacquer. You can decide on a very smooth matt look to your new floor, or instead choose a hand scraped finish.
Again, all these options mean that you get exactly the colour and feel that you need in your new stylish luxury floor.
It Is Incredibly Durable
A solid wood floor can last you a lifetime, because it is so strong and hard wearing. Solid wood floors can be re-sanded and sealed many times over. Thus it may never need replacing, unlike a lot of carpets or laminate floorings. If you look at this this way, spending money on a solid wood floor now may save you from a lifetime of buying any other floor coverings. So in the long term, a solid wood floor may save you a great deal of money!
I hope that I have managed to convince you of all the benefits of choosing a solid wood floor over the alternatives. A solid wood floor really is the most traditional and luxurious type of flooring that you can buy. With its unmistakable and completely irresistible feel and character, solid wood flooring can bring something very special to your home.
