hardwood flooring Palm Beach Gardens

It?s not too early to talk about the holidays, especially the way this year has been flying by!

Preliminary reports are showing that this could be a fairly good year for retailers. Predictions say that sales may increase by 3.7 percent.

Of course, that?s still below the 4.5- 5.0 percent that was consistent before the great financial meltdown of 2008, but that?s still good news, because that all-important 4th quarter is when some make half of their yearly revenue. We also have to remember the effect on online shopping, sales are still increasing, and may be up as much as 16 percent from last year.

Hardwood Flooring from Quantum Flooring in West Palm Beach can also give you those holly jolly holidays.

For one thing, you?ll have worry-free entertaining; no concerns about foot traffic! Hardwood flooring is extremely durable, lasting for decades. That means you can install it in those high traffic areas, such as the foyer or living or dining room. You can even install hardwood flooring in your kitchen, and THAT?S a big deal because we all KNOW the kitchen is the ?heart of the home,? and the place where people really congregate.

What about moisture, heat and humidity? Engineered hardwood flooring is much more stable and moisture-resistant. In fact, you can even install it in basements, and that?s good news, since party and game rooms are often located in the basement. Engineered hardwood flooring has a core of real wood, with plywood layers crossing over the core; then it?s topped with a veneer. That?s what gives it stability.

Finally, think of the breathtaking ways it can dress up your home for the holidays. If you have a dark floor with red undertones, even a poinsettia plant will make it ?pop.? if your home has a big window and you?re lucky enough to look out into the water or into greenery, the contrast will make those undertones give your room that za-za-zoom. Then add some greenery around the window, or a couple of wreaths and it will get really exciting.

The news has been very grim for the past couple of weeks, and we?ve all been worried, frazzled, and concerned. Now it?s time for fun, so come into one of the Quantum Floors showrooms in Ft. Lauderdale, Palm Beach Gardens, or Boynton Beach and let us show you what?s possible.
