Affordable Hardwood Floors

Investing in a hardwood floor is a wise decision to increase the value and warmth of your home.  As you move on to the exciting process of selecting a floor that expresses your style, you can be certain you have chosen a product that will be structurally sound for many years of enjoyment.

Affordability

Twenty & Oak brands offer diverse hardwood flooring solutions to meet a broad range of budgets.  Plank width, surface treatment, species and construction all contribute to the varied price points of hardwood selections. The thickness of the “wear layer” or “face” of an engineered product will also contribute to the cost.

Palmetto Road boasts several handscraped, engineered collections that are both stunning and economical.  Take a look at Mountain Ridge, River Ridge and Highlands Park.  Bump up the budget a few pennies more and you can have fashionable wire brushed, sliced French Oak from the Monet collection to show off in a focal point room. 

A solid hardwood product that has not had additional visual treatments in a 2 1/4" or 3 1/4" width will also be at the lower end of the price points.  Azalea Lane's Bradford Collection offers classic, timeless stain colors in a 3/4" solid plank with a 25 year finish warranty that is budget friendly and made in the USA.  The Benefits of Classic Hardwood will help you with inspiration for a timeless design.

Use a little creativity to sneak some hardwood into the budget.  For example, turn your focus to a “first impression” area in your home.  A foyer, sitting area or great room with hardwood sets the tone for the rest of your house, so spend a little extra in those areas for a great return on a limited budget.
 
Sustainability for the Long-Term
Whether you are in your "forever" home or planning a move in the future,  hardwood would be your final flooring purchase.  Would you rather spend your money one time, or several times?  Carpet must be replaced due to wear, staining and outdated styles several times over the life of a home.  Hardwood remains structurally sound, can be refurbished, and its classic aesthetic never goes out of style.  Hardwood finish warranties typically range from 25-50 years, adding value to your home and the peace of mind that comes with a smart investment.  A UV Cured Urethane finish ensures a beautiful surface that will maximize the durability of your hardwood floor without frequent costly repairs. 
 
At Twenty & Oak, you can be sure to find a beautiful hardwood product that is both stylish and affordable.  The common misconception that hardwood is totally out of reach for tight budgets can easily be argued with a little creativity and a good retailer to show you some beautiful, practical options.
