Professionally installed hardwood flooring adds elegance to any home, while hardwood flooring durability contributes to unquestioned resale value. Homeowners and business people all over the Reno/Tahoe region understand those simple concepts. Still, there are some people out there who have yet to learn all of the benefits of hardwood flooring. I write these blogs for those folks.

Of course, it would take me years to convey all of the value, beauty, and personality hardwood flooring adds to your Reno/Tahoe home or office. So I’ll continue to write…

Hardwood Flooring Durability Means Easy Maintenance

Yes. I talk about this one often. Mostly because it can’t be said enough. Hardwood flooring can last, looking beautiful, for generations. Carpets and other flooring types simply wear out faster, adding unnecessary maintenance costs to your ownership. Hardwood flooring is easy to maintain with regular sweeping and light mopping. I’ve written extensively on the many easy ways to keep your hardwood flooring clean and healthy, with very little effort.

Variety Means Personality

Hardwood flooring comes in an almost infinite variety colors, sizes and styles, allowing you to create anything from a simple plank look to an intricate Parquet design. Whatever your personality demands, hardwood flooring durability and elegance can deliver.

Naturally, Oak and Pine are classic, easy ways to add sophistication to a Reno/Tahoe space, being almost ideal for any decor.  They both work well whether your home or office style is contemporary, traditional, or totally avaunt-guard. Bamboo flooring adds the benefit of sustainability to your home, because it can be created from recycled wood.

Beauty and Elegance Increase Your Home’s Value

Hardwood flooring is a strictly value-added option. In much the same way a new home or office building will always cost more than all the materials necessary to built it, hardwood flooring durability increases the resale value of your home. Or office. Carpeting, no matter how beautiful or well made, will need to be replaced, holds onto stains and allergens, and can look old and worn out in just a few years. The smart money in Reno/Tahoe Real Estate always looks for the elegance and durability of hardwood flooring.

by Sorin Giurca on July 27, 2018

hardwood floor contrast designContrast Is King in Reno/Tahoe

When choosing the hardwood flooring type and color schemes for your home or office, it’s important to think in terms of hardwood floor contrast design and continuity. Today I want to discuss both dark and light contrast in your hardwood flooring design choices, as a way of integrating continuity throughout your Reno/Tahoe home or office.

Installing a light or dark hardwood flooring scheme in your home or office will provide a lasting foundation for all your decor choices moving forward. Knowing the best way to integrate your ideas into clear design themes is why you should always hire a professional.

Choose Your New Hardwood Flooring Carefully

With new construction projects, you get to choose the colors and materials for cabinets, walls, baseboards, and flooring. As I’m sure you’re well aware, some choices are more difficult to change once they have been executed. This is especially true for hardwood flooring; once you have installed your hardwood flooring for contrast and design, it will last for as long as your new building stands. Therefor, it needs to be something you absolutely LOVE.

Hardwood Floor Contrast Design Can Make Your Interiors Timeless

Your hardwood floor contrast design can be used to make a large room look warm and inviting, or to lighten up an otherwise dark room. Your choices will have a lasting affect on the overall look and feel of your home or office for years and years. An experienced artisan will be the best person to help you truly plan for what you want that end result to accomplish.

Because your new hardwood flooring can last as long as your new home or office will stand, the contrast design choices you make today will impact everything from future décor to resale value.

Artisan Hardwood Floors is Your Best Choice

At Artisan Hardwood Floors, we have years of experience installing hardwood floors, both dark and light. We can provide you with informed, professional guidance about where a darker or lighter hardwood flooring contrast design will be most beneficial in your new Reno/Tahoe home or office. After all; you can repaint your walls on a whim, but your hardwood flooring choice is a long-term commitment.

We want you to be happy with your hardwood flooring, now and for years to come. Please don’t hesitate to stop by to discuss your specific needs with us in person. Or you can simply contact us and schedule a complimentary consultation. We’ll even come down to your build site if that’s more convenient for you.
