The Benefits of Wire-Brushed Wood Floors
One of the best ways to upgrade your home is to choose wood floors. Although you might admire the way that laminate or bamboo floors look, there is nothing like a beautiful new wood floor, glistening in the light. Wire brushing gets rid of the softwood, leaving only the heartwood at the core. Although this look may remind you of a farmhouse, it is an elegant touch.
At first, the new floors will feel rougher than any of the other ones you have had before. This can remind you of the ground in the woods behind your home. That doesn’t always have to be a bad thing, though. It means that the floors are more durable, and you can get more traction. That’s a good thing because it helps to reduce the risk of slips, trips, and falls.
Another reason to choose wire-brushed wood floors is that they are better for your family members. It doesn’t matter if you are thinking of your children, elderly relatives, or your pets. All three family groups can benefit from having these floors installed in your home. These floors can withstand more of life’s busyness. So don’t hesitate to throw that party marking the end of summer! Your pets and relatives will thank you. Besides, you shouldn’t pass up a chance to socialize just because you are anxious about the state of your house. One of the most compelling reasons to renovate your home with new floors is so you can start hosting and entertaining again, even if it is just for a small family get-together.
No matter how long you’ve had your wood floors, you can rest easy knowing they’ll never go out of style. In other words, they will continue to enhance your home’s aesthetic even after years of being walked on every day. The key is to take good care of them. Many homeowners are turning to reclaimed wood. Others are choosing distressed wood. Still more want to have hand-scraped wood floors. Why not incorporate something that captures the looks of all three instead? It can be a rustic touch that also gives your home more of a European flavor.
