Spring is a time of new beginnings. Part of that new beginning is to remodel your home. Are you in the market for new flooring? If you are, then you have some questions to answer along the way. You might be a first-time buyer or not, but finding the answers doesn’t need to be hard as you imagine.
What Can Make My Home More Valuable?
The first question to answer involves your home’s value. Hardwood floors can increase your home’s value, as can stone, bamboo, porcelain tile, and luxury vinyl tile, or LVT. Hardwoods have the highest return on investment value, so if that matters to you, it is certainly worth thinking about when you want new flooring. Your home’s resale value will go up by 2.5%, which is fantastic news when you want to move out and it’s time to move on.
What Works for Kitchens and Bathrooms?
Kitchens and bathrooms are places with high moisture content, and along with basements and laundry rooms, are bound to the most humid as well. With spring soon to give way to summer, humidity is a factor you have to consider when searching for new flooring. Choose prefinished hardwood, since it is more water-resistant than its unfinished cousin.
What About High Foot Traffic?
At some point, you will want to throw a party to celebrate the end of quarantine. That means higher foot traffic than before. Choose wood floors made from maple, oak, or ash. Refinishing them when necessary is easy, although you will still want to engage the services of flooring professionals to make sure the job gets done right.
And Flooring for Every Room?
Finally, think about the answer to this question. If you have a newer home, then chances are you have an open floor plan. In that case, you will need wall-to-wall flooring that doesn’t look out of place. It doesn’t matter what style of home you have, either, it still works as you would expect it to. Find flooring that is water-resistant, even if it isn’t necessarily waterproof. Choose prefinished hardwood, for example, or laminate flooring. Linoleum also works. In the end, luxury vinyl tile or LVT; it’s durable since it’s waterproof and fade-proof. It also won’t scratch or dent, and you can make this new flooring like identical to hardwood.
