Wood Flooring – Yes or No?

Wood flooring looks stunning and adds a modern touch to any part of the home. It can be a great decision in terms of durability as well, because solid woods are resistant to scratches and to damage. This makes them good for high traffic areas, and households that have pets or young children.

You must remember as well that wood can be very expensive, especially if you decide on oak. It can be expensive to fit as well, as it can expand and contract, so you need a fitter who knows how it works and understands how to leave the correct gap around the sides of the wood.

If you want the look of wood but not the cost, you could opt for a laminate. Many laminates look just as good as wood and have a very similar texture. They have come so far that many people now choose them over solid wood.
