There is nothing that truly compares to real hardwood flooring as far as the overall warmth, the look and feel and the durability. When you’re planning to live in your home for many years, it is the best choice when you’re shopping for new flooring.
Real Hardwood Flooring
There is a situation when using artificial wood flooring is a better choice. If you are planning to sell your home in the next year or two, it is best to choose laminate wood flooring. Even though the real hardwood flooring has that something special in the warmth of the look that no laminate can match, you will never recover the money you spent on real hardwood. So, in the situation where you’ll sell the home soon, laminate is definitely the way to go.
Other Artificial Wood Choices
Besides artificial wood flooring like Pergo or some of the other brands, there is one other way to go for the look, but not the price of real hardwood flooring. This choice is the least expensive and that is vinyl flooring. There are some brands of rolled flooring that looks so real at first glance that you’ll think it is a real hardwood floor! It is easy to clean and it holds up well to pets. This is a flooring material you need to see in person to believe.
When you have your heart set on real hardwood flooring, you’ll be so happy with your choice. There are many options such as installing new planks or you can opt for reclaimed flooring. The latest look in flooring is to install barn wood as a hardwood floor. Give US Hardwood and Carpet a call today to go over your budget and all the different choices.
