While home sales have cooled, the market supply for wood flooring is expected to remain steady as remodeling and home improvement activity helps drive the hardwood flooring market past $3 billion by 2010, states the Specialists in Business Information (SBI) consumer goods report.
"Hardwood flooring has maintained its popularity in the home improvement market for several years, due to the high resale value it adds to a home, its durability, ease of repair and its luxurious look," said Greg Gilmartin, of Express Flooring (http://www.expressflooring.com/)
Specialty wood flooring options, such as walnut, teak and cherry, are also expected to increase in popularity, despite being more expensive. Their distinguishable qualities from traditional alternatives make them unique and distinct.
Coveted for their rich, warm color and sense of comfort they bring to a home, hardwood floors have become a homeowner's most valuable and long lasting home luxury.
The popular and unique specialty woods come in a variety of dramatic designs that are distressed, brushed and stained. They have distinct colors that fit the décor of today's modern home. From oak to walnut, hardwood flooring has the ability to endure the test of time and constantly changing home trends.
As home trends and styles change, hardwood flooring has proven to be both a durable and a dynamic home flooring option since it never goes out of style.
