There are so many options for improving your home’s interior. Painting the walls, reupholstering furniture, adding new decor elements, and dealing with clutter are all excellent options for giving the interior a “facelift,” as is purchasing and installing new flooring. The decision to renovate floors easily tops the list of most-desired interior home improvements, as it looks fabulous and contributes to a more streamlined appearance; it can also give a big boost in resale. Hardwood floors are particularly pleasing to the eye, and offer an array of benefits few other flooring options can compete with.
Let’s take a deeper look at the benefits of “switching up” your flooring:
One of the problems with carpets and laminate flooring is the potential for mold growth. Mold thrives in dark, damp conditions, and if floors get wet enough, water soaks through carpeting or floor boards. This resulting mold growth can cause a number of health issues, most of which are related to allergies and respiratory health. When found in large amounts, professional removal is required to prevent additional inhalation of spores. The decision to renovate flooring allows you to identify areas of growth and deal with the issue rather than unintentionally allowing it to get worse.
The decision to renovate with hardwood flooring and other options such as cork and vinyl flooring results in a serious reduction in allergens. Carpets provide optimal environments for dust, pollen, pet dander, and other allergens to collect, thus increasing allergy problems. Family members with allergy issues continue to suffer, and even those without a history of allergies find themselves sneezing and wiping their eyes. Choosing hardwood and similar flooring options is therefore a great way to decrease your home’s allergen content.
Increased Home Value
Another reason to improve your home’s interior via new flooring, and perhaps the most important for those homeowners thinking of selling in the next few years: It can increase a home’s value dramatically. This is particularly true of hardwood flooring, something the vast majority of homebuyers look for.
