We've run into a couple of situations in which a customer mentioned that they had hesitation before choosing hardwood floors for their home. We asked what the reason for the holdup was, and they mentioned children. Apparently there are a lot of people out there who are afraid that a hardwood floor might be too "harsh" for small children. We couldn't disagree more. While a hardwood floor might be harder than something like carpet, a hardwood floor becomes more practical in day to day life. Read on to see why we think so.
