There’s a reason that hardwood floors have been consistently warming Calgary homes for over a century. On top of their durability and unmatched utility as a comfortable but very cleanable surface, the intricate natural beauty of true wood grain is unparalleled. Each and every board is unique and contains the depth of nature. Even within one species of hardwood, the variations in grain patterns are vast, and subtle colour and lustre shifts are plentiful. Perhaps these qualities could all be summed up in one word: character.
It is because of its character, that more than any type of flooring, hardwood is classic. Its beauty does not fade with time. Rather, it is augmented, much like the sound of an old acoustic guitar. Its popularity has not waned in North America for hundreds of years. In terms of design trends, hardwood flooring is still lauded as a beautiful floor covering. In Calgary, hardwood flooring is just as valued if not more valued than it was when the city was first built. The fact that nowadays, hardwood flooring substantially increases the value of a Calgary home is a testament to this fact.
