Hardwood is an attractive choice for your home. It looks good in any room, is low maintenance and goes with any furnishings. A popular choice among buyers and homeowners, it is no wonder that it continues to remain a favorite for people who are renovating their homes. Hardwood floors can be an affordable choice and it can also be an expensive one depending on your specific choice.
You can’t really go wrong with a beautiful hardwood floor. Choose the specific wood for its color and durability and be pleased with that choice for years to come. There are many things to choose from when you are looking to renovate your home with an attractive floor. Choose the gorgeous mahogany due to its pleasing appearance and popularity or choose ash for its lighter color and the fact that it goes with the cabinets in your kitchen. No matter what you choose you will be able to find something that you can afford.
Mahogany and Teak floors are among you most expensive choices. They are both beautiful and durable so the price is well worth it in the long run. It is also fairly low maintenance and when you spend a lot of money to redo your floors it is great to get a pay off. Brazilian Teak is one of the more expensive choices. It is durable and refinishes in good quality, withstanding years and years of wear and tear. Luckily the expense of hardwood floors give you many choices the and if you have a hefty budget but are still trying to tighten the purse strings choosing Red Wood is not a bad idea. It is another option that will enhance the value of your home but is far more budget friendly than Mahogany. If you want to add texture or stains to the Red Wood however it will most likely add up to being as equally expensive as Teak.
If you are redoing your home and you want it to look exotic it is probably your floor that will take the first hit. If you budget is high you can choose an exotic hardwood floor. It is your most expensive option because you also have to add the shipping costs. Wood from South America and Africa is often imported to the States and the fact that it is foreign jacks up the price. Reclaimed hardwood floor is another exotic option with a handcrafted appearance. Its scarcity raises the price and with the added price of installation it is among the more expensive choices.
Hand scraped hardwood flooring comes with a misleading name because many of the hand scraped tile is done with a machine and not by hand. If you are looking for something truly handmade then you can go through Amish collections. Handmade work is always more expensive than things done by machine and, while the manufactured product is fine, if you are looking for something more unique getting it handmade is worth the extra expense.
Sometimes you want the best of the best no matter the price and with the many options it is easy to find the best for you. You can make a choice based on popularity, maintenance or the fact that it is one of a kind. The best part about expensive wood is that it remains durable and it isn’t just in name that makes its price so high.
