To me, there's nothing that can compare with the beauty and warmth that wood floors provide. 
They are a timeless foundation for great interior spaces and look great in both contemporary and more traditional settings. Wood is much easier on the body and a far lower impact than tile or stone floors and a favorite of interior designers and architects. Anything and everything that drops on them doesn't automatically shatter in a thousand pieces. Wood floors are much safer for babies and children as well. If you're in the market for some new flooring or rugs, please take a look here.
