This statement needs to be rephrased, so let’s just start this again. Not all hardwood floors are ever looking the same. Nor do they deliver the same results and appeal. Concrete floors, if left bare as is, are as grimly unattractive as they come. They conjure up images of stone-cold, well, coldness. But perhaps its manufacturers and installers leave it up to the designers to leave no stone unturned to produce a package that matters to most.
It all depends. It all depends on the property or business owners unique or immediate requirements. In some areas, the hard concrete floor is necessary in order to withstand the ongoing forces of heavy, mobile machinery or operating equipment. There is also the matter of heavy foot traffic which could be quite telling indeed. But in other areas, hardwood floors would be perfect. The foot traffic is nowhere near as heavy.
And of course, other than polishing and sanding equipment at scheduled times, there is no regular use of heavy machinery, heavy machinery that would always be quite damaging to wood floors in any case. The sanding equipment is necessary for when the hardwood floors need to be resurfaced. After all the work has been completed, it is time to polish the floors. But the polishing work is a lot more than shining and buffing to make it all look good.
It is about protecting the floorboards. Because no matter how strong and pliable, nothing lasts forever, particularly when there is ongoing wear and tear as a result of the above said foot traffic, no matter how ‘light’ it may appear to be. But it still looks good. Hardwood floors always look good. They are decorative and always quite stylish, can be in a variety of colors.
