Why Choose Hardwood Flooring for Kitchens

October 25, 2021

Homeowners today have more options for their floors than ever before, and one particularly popular choice is hardwood flooring for kitchens. For years, hardwood has been a highly desirable kitchen flooring material, and one for bedrooms and living rooms. And hardwood is popular for a reason; few flooring options give homeowners beautiful, timeless aesthetics, long-lasting durability, low maintenance, and value. Here is why you and many other homeowners should choose hardwood for your flooring.

Hardwood Floors Are Beautiful

One of the main reasons homeowners are attracted to hardwood flooring for kitchens is the aesthetics of hardwood. Wood floors are always in style and have a timeless aesthetic that complements any kitchen décor, from traditional to contemporary to rustic and everything in between. In addition, with the large variety of wood types, colors, grains patterns, and designs available, you can have a customized, unique flooring design in your home. Some homeowners also feel that hardwood makes their kitchens look bigger and feel more inviting and welcoming to guests.

Hardwood Is Durable

In addition to a timeless look and style, hardwood is a popular choice for kitchens due to its durability. Many wood flooring options come with waterproof, scratch, and dent-resistant finishes so that the wood is even more robust and maintains a beautiful appearance longer. With some proper maintenance and cleaning, hardwood flooring can last decades.

Hardwood Flooring is Low Maintenance & Easy to Clean

One of the reasons why hardwood can last so long and is a great flooring option is because the material is relatively low maintenance and easy to clean. Being low maintenance and easy to clean is especially important in rooms that see a lot of foot traffic and need more frequent cleaning, making hardwood flooring for kitchens an obvious choice for most homeowners.

Hardwood floors are typically sealed surfaces with a protective layer of finish. As a result, stains that appear are less of an issue and easier to clean up than on other flooring materials, like carpet. In addition to being more stain-resistant, hardwood can be swept, steam-cleaned, or vacuumed to remove any accumulated dirt or debris.

Scratches, scrapes, and other forms of damage are also easier to fix on a hardwood floor. With hardwood, if your kitchen floor has been scratched, scuffed, or dented, you may be able to simply have the floor sanded, smoothed, and refinished rather than replaced. And in case you do need new flooring, you may be able to replace individual strips or planks rather than the entire floor.

Hardwood Floors Improve Your Home’s Value

Hardwood flooring for kitchens can also increase the value of your home. Generally, hardwood floors have a return on investment of around 70-80 percent or can increase property values anywhere from 3-5 percent. Homebuyers have shown a willingness to pay higher prices for homes that have kitchens with hardwood floors. Many home buyers also plan to replace old flooring, which is why they are willing to pay more for a house that already has hardwood floors. Wood flooring can even help you sell your home faster. So whether you are a homeowner looking to move, or a property owner looking to sell your investment property, hardwood floors can help net you a more significant profit.
