While synthetic flooring has given rise to unique innovations like luxury vinyl and wood-look tile, nothing compares to natural floors. From hardwood to travertine tile, the experts here at Floor Coverings International KC South love natural flooring. Below are our top three favorite natural flooring choices and the unique qualities they can bring to your Overland Park home.
Traditional and timeless, there’s no question that natural hardwood floors are a great choice for any Overland Park home. Solid plank hardwood flooring has been in style since its origin. It’s not uncommon to find real hardwood at the top of a homebuyer’s wish list. This type of flooring has been popular for decades because it looks beautiful in the home and can last a lifetime with the proper care.
For an eco-friendly hardwood floor, look for Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified hardwoods. These trees are harvested sustainably for minimal environmental impact.
Natural carpets like wool, sisal, and seagrass are growing in popularity not only because they are significantly more eco-friendly than their synthetic counterparts but also because they provide a unique look and underfoot feel. Wool carpets are unmatched in warmth and comfort. They provide a luxurious comfort and are incredibly durable, lasting much longer than some synthetic carpets.
Most other natural carpets are plant based. Some are very durable, while others boast softness, and others still are chosen for their unique, earthy look. Natural carpets don’t require the use of chemicals during their manufacturing, so they are a great alternative for chemical-sensitive individuals.
It’s hard not to be enamored with a well-kept, natural stone tile floor. Stone tile like travertine, marble, and granite are all popular choices for flooring, countertops, and backsplashes. They are unmatched in beauty even by ceramic and porcelain look-alikes. Natural stone tile provides both style and durability unlike any other floor. These tiles are difficult to damage and can last a lifetime.
Polished stone tile is a great choice for individuals with allergies, because its smooth surface will not attract or trap allergens like porous floors or carpets. However, perhaps one of the greatest benefits of natural tile is the resale value boost it will bring to your home.
