4. Hardwood doesn’t go in the kitchen
Designers and homeowners have changed their minds on this. What better way to showcase your stylish, inviting kitchen than with beautiful lengths of hardwood? If water damage is a concern, engineered wood flooring is a durable option that gives you peace of mind while creating meals. To further safeguard your floor against accidents spills and splashes, place a rug in front of the sink or workstation.
5. Hardwood flooring comes with a high price tag
The species of wood used for hardwood flooring affects pricing, but don’t be discouraged; there are a lot of beautiful—and affordable woods out there. Typically, exotic woods are more expensive than local species. Consider the longevity of your investment compared with lower cost materials that are replaced more often. If you still aren’t sure it’s in the budget but have your heart set on the warmth and beauty of hardwood floors, there is a myriad of engineered hardwood to give you an equally aesthetic look at a lower cost.
