Why Hardwood?


What you should know

Before you invest in gorgeous, timeless hardwood, it’s important to understand how this surface will serve the specific needs in your home so that you can determine the perfect fit. Hardwood not only offers a tremendous range of benefits, it will improve the resale value of your home. Roberts Carpet & Fine Floors has a spectacular, wide-ranging selection of hardwood species and we will help you shop for the varieties you will cherish. We’ll even help you install them for perfect results. Here’s our take on all of the things that you should know about timeless hardwood and how it can uplift your inspired home.

Durable hardwood floors are the ultimate investment for your home. Not only are they distinctly elegant and full of warm natural beauty but your gorgeous planks will actually improve your home’s resale value and retain value more than any other flooring option. No matter what type of design scheme you're looking to capture, you can explore a wide range of stains, finishes, species, lengths, and widths, to complete spectacular hardwood floors. Maybe you want a coastal, relaxing feel or crave a rustic farmhouse aesthetic. Hardwood provides strength and beautiful character that is absolutely undeniable.

What’s your favorite hardwood species? At Roberts Carpet & Fine Floors, we are enamored with all types of hardwood hues, graining, knots, and markings. Oak is definitely thriving at the moment, perfect for capturing the light, airy look in a smooth finish. Hickory offers a wide range of shades with distinct natural color variations and graining. It’s hard to resist the rich red and brown hues of cherry wood that look fantastic in wider, longer plank formats. Walnut will help you create a dramatic, sophisticated floor that no one will forget. We have all of these varieties and more to explore with you inside our gorgeous showrooms.

Once we select your favorite hardwoods, we are more than happy to assist you in the professional hardwood installation that will need to take place. Our qualified team of hardwood installation professionals will help complete your finished floors with results you can count on and cherish for decades.

Do you have an open floor plan in your home? The rising popularity of these home layouts is well-suited for hardwood with larger plank formats. We can help you design the hardwood floors in your home based on the dimensions of your space while balancing with existing surfaces and the natural lighting within your home.

One of the best things about designing with hardwood is knowing that authentic wood never goes out of style. Although each year presents hot new trends in the flooring industry, there is never a shortage in the demand for the warm, rustic comfort that hardwood provides. Right now, we are seeing whitewashed wood being used to achieve an elegant yet fashionable look just as much as it achieves a coastal yet upscale vibe. Those who crave the visual of exposed growth rings and character lines can’t get enough of our hardwood options with hand-scraped and wire-brushed textures. Matte finishes are perfect for a subtle, natural look that can prove easier to maintain. Of course, a low-gloss satin finish will still provide a classic feel if you prefer a little bit of shine. If you’re a hardwood lover like us, you will love shopping inside one of our 10 Roberts Carpet & Fine Floors showrooms, conveniently located throughout the Greater Houston Area. We have miles of hardwood just waiting to be explored!
