3 Reasons to Love Hardwood Flooring

Since today is Valentine’s Day, it’s time to spread the love, and your hardwood flooring deserves some love too! Wood flooring is one of the oldest and most durable flooring types in the world. It is often thought of as traditional flooring in homes, and is typically at the top of homeowners’ wish lists. So why is wood flooring so popular and desired? Because it’s easy to love! Here are three reasons to love hardwood flooring.

1. Hardwood Flooring is Beautiful

There’s a reason people aspire to have hardwood flooring in their homes – it looks great! One of the great things about wood flooring is that there is nearly an endless variety of options. Hardwood flooring comes in many different colors, styles, species and looks, which means it works in any room, in any home. Because of its immense variety, wood flooring never really goes out of style and is a great investment.

Tesoro Woods offers over 10 different species of wood, tons of different colors, a variety of surface textures, and multiple finishes and gloss levels. Take a look at all of our unique wood flooring products today.

2. Hardwood Flooring is Durable

Hardwood flooring is tough and durable, especially certain species. Most homeowners only purchase wood flooring once for their home because hardwood flooring is so durable. Many home’s wood floors last so long because they can be refinished, unlike carpet or laminate. Even engineered wood flooring is quite durable and can often be refinished, while still being a more cost effective choice than solid hardwood flooring.

To determine how durable a wood floor is, use the Janka rating. Many exotic species, like those in Tesoro Woods’ Great Southern Woods Collection have a higher Janka rating, meaning they are more durable. The North American species, like those in Tesoro Woods’ Great Northern Woods Collection have a lower Janka rating, but are still quite durable and long-lasting.

3. Hardwood Flooring is Sustainable

Forest Stewardship Council FSC CertifiedIt’s difficult to see how wood flooring can be considered sustainable or eco-friendly. Actually, hardwood flooring can be sustainable if the wood came from a sustainable source. Today, there are several environmentally responsible sources for wood products that are distinguished by independent certifications, with the current industry leader being the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®).

Tesoro Woods believes forest certification allows consumers to use their purchasing power to support forestry practices that conserves forests for future generations. Many of our wood flooring products are FSC-certified, coming from well-managed forests. To learn about all of our certifications, see our Environmental Attribute Guide.

    Thank you for giving me so many reasons to consider hardwood flooring such as how it looks. My husband and I want to add something new to our house. I think finding someone who can help us pick out the best hardwood flooring for our home would be a great next step.
