If you’re a parent, or about to become one, you may see images of perfectly decorated and organized homes and think that hardwood floors are for those people — you know, the ones without kids, or at least without the rugged, messy, all-in brand of kids you have or plan to have. While hardwood floors do provide the perfect canvas for picture-perfect homes like those you see on Pinterest and in magazines, they’re also great for truly lived-in homes like yours. Yes, even when the kids come in dripping after a water fight or forgetting to take their cleats off after soccer, yet again. Rehmeyer wood floors can be great for your home, too. Let us explain why.
A Healthy Choice
Like all attentive parents, you want to create an environment that’s healthy for your family. It won’t be perfect, to be sure, but you definitely don’t want to invite toxins in. Did you know that when you have carpet installed, that’s exactly what you do? Not only is carpet far from being friendly to the environment, it can also be hazardous to your family’s health. The chemicals are just the beginning, though. All the dirt and grime and allergens from outdoors and the rest of the world come inside with your kids and pets, no matter what flooring you have. No matter how many times you remind them to take off their shoes, they will forget. The difference with wood floors is that unlike carpet, the fibers don’t trap those contaminants indefinitely; instead, the floor can be easily swept, removing any seen or unseen debris.
A Low-Maintenance Choice
Not only are wood floors cleaner and safer for your family, they also require very little maintenance to remain in peak condition. Carpet can easily be stained, requiring (and sometimes even resisting) intensive shampoo treatments. Tile or linoleum can be cleaned easily, but they can also be damaged. Tiles can be broken and will need to be replaced, and tile grout needs to be scrubbed or fixed. Linoleum can be dented or damaged easily, as well. Not only do all Rehmeyer wood floors look great for years with minimal maintenance, but three collections include varying degrees of hand-distressing, allowing regular wear-and-tear to blend in with the initial character markings that offer an initial lived-in look.
A Durable Choice
Rehmeyer wood floors are a family-friendly option not only because they’re low-maintenance and healthy, but they’re also durable. While we already mentioned how regular wear-and-tear can be masked if you choose a distressed flooring option such as the Legacy Collection, the fact is that hardwood flooring is pretty tough stuff. It can stand up to heavy foot traffic, even with your family’s active lifestyle. These floors provide a long-term investment that increases your home’s property value, proven to promote a quicker sale, when it’s time for you to move.
Of course, the real reason most people love their Rehmeyer wood floors is simple: They look fantastic.
