Hardwood flooring can become more beautiful over time
Hardwood flooring can become more beautiful over time A Cape Cod-style house in Arlington, Virginia, is one of several attractive homes that provide residents with a beautiful abode, just a short trip from the nation's capital.
The Washington Times reports that the home's yard is especially welcoming as it is home to a professionally landscaped garden bed and large trees in the front yard that provide ample amounts of shade.
The 73-year-old house has an impressive interior as well. According to the news source, the living room has a number of luxurious amenities, including a Juliet balcony, gas fire place and a cathedral ceiling. It is also replete with wide-plank hardwood flooring.
Homeowners who want to fill their own space with timeless beauty can install a similar flooring choice. The National Wood Flooring Association states that hardwood flooring can actually increase its aesthetic appeal as it ages, as the material can subtley change color over time in a process called patina, which can add a sense of character to the floor.
