ST. LOUIS, April 13 /CNW/ -- Other than the clothes you wear, there is no
single thing you possess that expresses your individual style more than your
home. Whether it's classy and sophisticated, modern and contemporary,
traditional and warm, or rustic and casual, your home is an extension of your
personality, and the items you select to fill your home are a reflection of
you. Even though you want to select unique products for your home, you also
want to select elements that offer real value, and will adapt easily to
different decorating styles.
Real wood floors are a decorating element that coordinates with any
decor, and a November 2006 survey conducted by the National Wood Flooring
Association with interior designers across the nation confirms this. Of the
designers surveyed, 96% agreed that wood floors work with many decorating
styles, 94% agreed they add value to a home, 92% agreed they are warmer that
other flooring options, and 88% agreed they are hypo-allergenic. In addition,
more than three-fourths agreed that wood floors are environmentally friendly,
easy to maintain, and easy to make look like new. When you add to this the
fact that wood floors will last a lifetime, they become a real value as well.
There is no doubt that real wood floors have a lot to offer -- beauty,
style, durability -- which is likely why more than half of the interior
designers surveyed recommend hardwood floors, or a combination of hardwood and
other flooring materials, such as stone, to their clients. With its
versatility and eco-friendly attributes, wood floors offer real long-term
value, no matter what your decorating style.
