HardwoodPros:• Durability• Can be refinished multiple times• Warm look and feelCons:• Not ideal for frequent contact with water, which can cause warping• Can dent or scratch easily• Color fades in sunlightWood flooring has a timeless beauty that complements any decor style and adds value to a property. It's a larger investment up front, but it's very durable and has a long life. Even if it dents and scratches, hardwood can be refinished multiple times to recapture the original look. Although it's not as soft as carpet, hardwood is softer than tile or concrete. If you are a painter who stands at your easel or a photographer who moves around the studio to capture your shot, this flooring alternative is ideal. Just be wary of water and liquids. If they come into contact with the wood often, your floor could become permanently warped or stained.
