Why choose hardwood?

Prized for its natural beauty and lasting durability, hardwood in your home makes a rich visual statement but keeps cleanup a breeze.

Hardwood floors combine strength and style; that’s why we recommend them for homes with both children and pets. Our wide variety of colours, textures, species, and styles make it easy to find the perfect choice for your home.

We offer both solid and engineered hardwood flooring.

Solid wood flooring, each plank is a solid piece of wood from the finest domestic and exotic hardwoods. These hardwood floors are best installed on or above grade. Wood species vary in hardness and light sensitivity, so keep foot traffic, furniture, and light exposure in mind when choosing a species.
Why choose hardwood?
Engineered hardwood flooring is made from real hardwood with a cross-ply construction that resists expansion and contraction from humidity changes. It can be installed on any level.

Our favourite aspect about hardwood flooring is the way it looks. You can choose more uniform patterns or select a style with distinctive natural variations, knots and mineral marks. Light-coloured hardwoods like grays will open up spaces to produce an airy vibe. Golden honey tones, the latest hardwood trend, add a warm ambiance.

Wide planks are perfect for crafting a historic or rustic feel and will enhance the natural beauty of any wood type you choose.

Hardwood surfaces will shine for decades. We would love to give your home this timeless beauty.

Hardwood from Island Carpet Sales LTD

Wood flooring may be passed down for generations

When the early settlers built their log cabins and then their wood frame houses, they used the hardwood that was abundant in the area for their flooring. Many homes still standing today that are 100 years old or more, still have their original hardwood flooring. Yes, it may have been sanded and refinished over the years, but the beauty and warmth remains.

Those who are building new homes and condominiums, or who are redecorating existing homes, can guarantee their children and grandchildren a beautiful floor when they inherit the home. HVAC units, hot water heaters, refrigerators and microwaves will be replaced many times over. But the hardwood floors will remain a steady friend from decade to decade.

You are invited to visit the Island Carpet Sales showroom in Richmond, BC to see the total collection of what is being offered today. Home owners in Richmond, Delta, Surrey, Burnaby, and Vancouver have many more choices than those who built 100 years ago.

One of the huge benefits of hardwood flooring is that it never goes out of style. It can be sanded and refinished many times over, revealing the original grains and beauty. In colder climates, it is nice to know that this natural resource is actually a great insulator. They have a natural warmth that cannot be duplicated.

Another benefit of being a natural resource is that the wood does not absorb and harbor bacteria, allergens and irritants.Compared to other types of flooring, hardwood has much lower levels of chemical emissions and vastly improves indoor air quality. In fact, if you have allergies, asthma or another similar condition, hardwood is recommended by allergists.
