Hardwood of any kind can make a lovely addition to your house. If you’re an Ottawa homeowner looking to add classic yet versatile flooring to your space, then Floor Coverings International Ottawa East believes mahogany hardwood may be the solution. With its rich, dark color, this gorgeous flooring matches well with any décor or color scheme.
Benefits of Mahogany
Mahogany ranks fairly high on the Janka Hardness Scale, a tool of measurement that delineates woods by their relative hardness. Because it is such a hard wood, mahogany is more durable than many other wood species and will hold up better to higher levels of foot traffic.
Like other hardwood floors, installing mahogany hardwood has the potential to raise the value of your Ottawa home. A classic, dark hardwood should be considered an investment that will pay off aesthetically and, most likely, financially, should you ever consider selling your home.
Another benefit of mahogany flooring is that it is extremely fade-resistant. This makes it a great option for rooms that see a lot of sunlight. After spending the time and money to install beautiful floors, you want to make sure they are going to last! Mahogany will stand the test of time and continue to hold its color regardless of the beating rays of sunlight that may filter down onto your floors.
Keep in Mind
Because mahogany is such a hard wood, it can be difficult to install, making it a challenge to come by certain plank sizes and shapes. Be sure to carefully evaluate your space and your design goals so you can decide if mahogany would be a good fit for your home.
