Which Rooms Benefit Most From Solid Wood Flooring?

With more and more choice being made available in varying styles, colours and finishes, having a solid wood floor installed in your home is becoming a firm favourite when people decide to redecorate. One of the benefits of a wood floor is that it is timeless and with this comes the hidden benefit that it will help you to sell your house. Another benefit is that it is easily installed. The only major decision you have to make is what style of wood flooring and which room do you want to install it in.

When looking into which room would benefit the most from having a solid wood floorboard installed you will not only see the usual rooms but also a few surprises.

When it comes to restyling your living room, people often feel that if you make it too modern and contemporary it becomes cold and uninviting, especially with all the modern gadgets that are now available. So they often tend to choose wood flooring to make it more traditional. Similar to the living room, the bedroom can also be enhanced with wood flooring. Solid wooden floor can give any room an immediate impact some may even say it can be overpowering, but you can always soften it with a few clever decorative finishes, such as a giant rug in the centre of the room, to give the room warmth. It is not only your decorative styles that can make your room feel even cosier; a solid wood floorboard is also a great insulator so it will help keep the room warm in those cold winter months. If you want a classic vintage look go for a patterned rug, but if you decide you do want something a bit more contemporary then go for a solid block colour rug.

Wood floorings have become more and more popular and with this high demand it means that more choice is now on offer. There is no doubt that wood flooring is highly durable and easy to clean making it a perfect choice for any family room such as the living room. But it is also becoming popular in other rooms such as the hallway or dining room. Some people may often choose against having a solid wood floor installed in these rooms, as they believe it will darken an already dark room due to the limited amount of natural light, but wood flooring is now available in a variety of different finishes and shades, making it more adaptable. For instance a highly polished wood floorboard that shines can be extremely inviting as it brings warmth to any room.

Most astonishingly kitchens and bathrooms can also benefit from having wood floorboard. Wood flooring is easily cleaned and protected, especially when varnished or even by making it water resistant. Also, it is durable no matter what the wear and tear or the spillages, all you have to do is wipe them up or if more drastic action is required you can have it stripped and re varnished.

With so much choice such as the different types of wood or the finishes any room can be transformed with a solid wooden floorboard.
