Wood flooring has a natural beauty

Hardwood floors have a natural beauty. They’re elegant, classic, and timeless. When you enter our showroom, you'll see an extensive wood flooring collection in Wellington, FL.

There will be designs like Citadel by Fabrica or Character Corner by Somerset.

Carpet comes in a large assortment of styles, designs, and constructions. There's something for every decor.

Wood floors last for decades

That's right! In fact, solid hardwood flooring has been known to last up to 100 years, while engineered lasts for 50.

A carpet installation will endure for about 20 years, depending on quality and care.


There might be some initial sticker shock with hardwood, but look at the overall picture. Because it lasts so long, there are few, if any, repair and replacement costs.  

That makes wood floors cost-effective in the long term. As a result, hardwood has the highest ROI of any flooring. 

With carpet’s large variety of designs and constructions, it’s easy to find something that suits your budget. 


Wood flooring is natural and considered one of the best hypoallergenic products. Modern technology, meanwhile, has enabled carpet mills to create versions to create versions with extra durability, stain resistance, and hypoallergenic characteristics.
