Hardwood floors bring a sophisticated, high-end look to any space. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing, but they are also easier to clean and less likely to be damaged. This will help you save on cleaning and repair costs over the years. Plus, because they are so durable, hardwood floors can last for generations. This durability makes them a cost-effective flooring option.
It may be a bit more expensive upfront, but it will save you money in the long run. Another reason hardwood floors are safer for your home is the lack of formaldehyde emissions. Hardwood floors are a solid product and totally natural, so they do not emit any hazardous chemicals, making this type of flooring one of the best for your home. Real wood and artificial wood floors are an excellent choice for people who lead busy lives, as they are relatively easy to clean compared to carpets: they do not accumulate dirt, dust or debris in the same way and can be easily wiped down with a cloth (using one of the recommended Bona cleaners).

Glue-down and click-lock installation methods are simpler than nailing, as nailing requires a wooden subfloor and special tools such as a floor nailer.
Engineered floors offer the same quick installation benefits as laminate flooring, with the genuine look and appeal of a real wood floor.
