Hardwood flooring is a very popular choice in Bradenton, FL and, as we all know, hardwood floors are a major incentive for many people when choosing a home. Considering the popularity of this style of flooring, how can you maximize your chances of selling your home, while still taking advantage of the value-boosting power of hardwood flooring? Come to the dark side!
Another reason homeowners in Bradenton, FL are choosing darker hardwood flooring is that they lend a sophisticated, upscale appeal to any home. This translates directly into an upscale price tag when the home is sold. You can see why these floors have been trending; there aren't many people who'd turn down an opportunity for more money!
Coming to the dark side does have its drawbacks, however. Dark hardwood flooring tends to show dirt and sand more clearly. Bradenton, FL is rich with water frontage like beaches and river banks, so this may seem like a major drawback. Nevertheless, the fact of the matter is that you will need to keep those floors swept regardless of the color, because sand and dirt will erode the finish of your floor. So, what seems like a problem only for darker floors is really a problem for all hardwood floors. If anything, it makes it easier to know that it is time to sweep that floor!
Overall, just having any hardwood floor in your Bradenton home will increase its value, but realizing that everyone else knows this too, and being sure to keep up with the trends, will keep you competitive in a competitive housing market.
