Hardwood flooring is a flooring style that has remained popular among homeowners all over the country. The simple yet elegant style of this flooring makes it a popular choice aesthetic-wise. But what actual benefits does it give you as a type of flooring? As it turns out, there are quite a few benefits it has for homeowners. McHales can provide you with five different reasons you should consider hardwood flooring for your kitchen.

Here are five reasons to consider hardwood flooring for your kitchen:


Easy to clean

Using a non-carpet flooring in your kitchen and dining room is generally a good idea. Carpets have a tendency to absorb stains that makes it hard to clean out certain messes. Hardwood, meanwhile, is significantly more stain-resistant than carpets. All you have to do is wipe up the spill! In addition, you can clean the flooring through sweeping, steam-cleaning, or vacuuming.


Durability is one of the main reasons homeowners use hardwood floors. Its exact durability depends on a lot of factors, but hardwood lasts a very long time overall. It’s possible to scratch or dent hardwood, but it’s pretty difficult to do. Even if you do damage it, it can be sanded down and refinished multiple times without ruining its integrity. If cared for properly, solid hardwood can potentially last for generations.

Better air quality

Out of the various types of flooring out there, hardwood is best for those who have allergies. Carpets make it very easy for allergens and dust to get trapped in the fibers. Meanwhile, tiles and laminate have grout lines and an embossing where dust and allergens can settle. Hardwood gives no place for dust to hide.

No fading colors

Over time, many carpets will lose their original coloring and face wear and tear. Hardwood doesn’t have this issue, and its steady appearance is one of the reasons it’s has a reputation for being long-lasting. However, if you do want to change the flooring’s color, it’s easy and cheap to refinish it. This lets you drastically change your home’s appearance without spending too much money.

Boosts your home’s value

Hardwood is a very appealing type of flooring for potential homebuyers. Home buyers often remove carpet flooring because it’s seen as “someone else’s” carpet and has a tendency to carry old germs. The popularity and other features of hardwood flooring make it so you can sell quicker and for more. Getting hardwood isn’t just an investment for your family. It’s also an investment in the future.
