Oct. 4, 2011 - PRLog -- The importance of picking the right flooring in your entrance hall should not be underestimated. Much like the first impression you give to people, you should be keen that your home offers an equally impressive impact.

As the hallway is such a minor area, people tend to neglect its importance. Often the same flooring will cover a large proportion of the house despite the unique impact that the entrance gives to your home. If you think about it, many people will never even see further than your hallway, so its importance is amplified. If instead, you’re looking to sell your home, these first impressions are crucial.

For potential buyers, it has been noticed that real wood floors rapidly increase the value of your house. Hardwood flooring is easy (and cheaper) to personalise, thereby adding value in the eyes of the buyer. Potential occupiers will want to add their own personality to the property and your matching carpet and wall décor may not be to your potential buyers taste. A natural oak floor however is easy to modify and adds a touch of class to your hallway and sets the standard for the rest of the property.

As a thoroughfare too, you will want to use sturdy, hardwearing materials such as a solid oak floor. This will both keep the maintenance down as dirt wont show up as easily, and unlike carpet, will never need replacing. The cost of cleaning a dirty carpet can also quickly add up. Steam cleaning, stain removal and even the upkeep of your vacuum can be a drain on your time and money. A simple oak floor however, only needs a bucket of soapy water and a mop. In fact, a distressed oak floor effect is timeless and effortlessly adds character to your home whereas a dirty, worn carpet is instantly looked down upon.

At Easy Step Flooring, we even offer a pre-distressed effect that takes years to accumulate naturally. Alternatively you can use many different methods to quickly distress your floors. Sand paper, and a bag of nails quickly adds a wear and tear effect, but if you want to recolour it, a pad with tea and vinegar enrichens can change the tone to achieve your desired effect. These distressing techniques however can be overdone, and it’s possible to splinter your flooring, so be careful, or hire a professional.

Overall though, a warm and inviting tonal texture to your entrance hall will be sure to impress your friends and acquaintances alike. Whilst with young people and first time buyers, the ability to personalise their accommodation and contemporary lure is a key factor in deciding whether they want to move in. Solid oak flooring is proven to enforce these impressions and as a highly durable, and high quality product you won’t regret the decision to renovate the entrance to your home. First impressions are everything.
