Is your home dated and drab? Do you feel hate everytime you walk into your guest bathroom? Well, it’s time for an upgrade with your flooring.
Besides paint, one of the easiest ways to freshen up and modernize your home is to put in new flooring. Old stained carpet and dated linoleum are often overlooked because it doesn’t seem like a necessity to change, but by adding new flooring, you can give your space a much-needed upgrade while also investing your money in your home.
For example, wood flooring might cost a little more upfront, but you can get as much as 70-80% more of the original cost back when selling your home!
How To Choose The Best Type Of Flooring For Your Home
There are many different flooring options to choose from. This article will discuss the different types, how they will affect the value of the home, and what space they would fit best in.
Carpet has its place in every home. It is soft on your feet and gives the space a warm, cozy feel. Carpeting works best in bedrooms, living rooms, and basements. The cost of carpeting can range from extremely cheap to outrageously expensive depending on different factors like material quality, piling, room size/shape, and installation. If you are planning on moving in the near future, changing out your carpeting to a quality material that is neutral color will affect resale value. A home with older, stained carpet often has a harder time on the market than a home with new carpet. While you may not be getting all of your money on the carpet back, people will not give you a lowball offer since you did some improvements.
Laminate is a perfect, durable alternative to hardwood flooring. Since laminate was first invented, the quality has greatly improved. You can find almost any type of wood look-alike down the laminate floor section of your local hardware store. Laminate flooring would go very well in a space that is prone to a lot of traffic because laminate has a waterproof undercoating and a scratch resistant surface.
Hardwood is considered the crem de la crem of all flooring. They are natural, beautiful, timeless, durable, and adds a premium value to your home when you are ready to sell.
Tile is another affordable way to freshen up your room. We love tile projects because of how new it makes the room & home feel when installed!
