Flooring That Can Make Your Home More Valuable
February 7, 2020
Are you looking to remodel or renovate your home? One of the steps involved is to choose the flooring! Whether it is upstairs or downstairs, in the kitchen, bathroom, garage or basement, you can make it happen! Here is a better look at the different types of flooring that can help you fetch a higher asking price when it’s time to move on!
It should go without saying, but hardwood flooring is gorgeous and durable enough to make the price of your home jump. Plus, getting the installation done provides a tremendous return on investment (ROI) after the project is complete. Most of the time, homeowners go in for prefinished hardwood more often than any other type. Unfinished hardwood is more expensive, which is why this is the case.
Ah yes, our old friend bamboo. It isn’t just a panda’s favorite snack anymore! While it looks like hardwood, it is also a more affordable alternative. The tradeoff is that your ROI won’t be as high. Either way, it gives you a boost on property value, and no matter what, you have some beautiful new floors that you can enjoy for years to come! The bamboo is good for the environment, especially since it is sustainable. Plus, it fights off the effects of moisture damage and you have solid traditional, engineered, and strand-weave if you so choose!
Stone flooring isn’t a thing of the past. Natural stone is incredibly versatile, and more importantly, you know it will last if the castles in Europe can give any indication. They resist scratch damage, which is something that even hardwood can’t always do; you can match any aesthetic you like to it; and they are fantastic fits for anywhere bound to catch tons of moisture – namely the kitchen, the bathroom, and the foyer by the front door.
Lastly, let’s not forget about tile flooring. This material is often made of ceramics or porcelain. Porcelain is dense enough to withstand scratch damage while ceramics are impervious to water and don’t require much maintenance, two qualities that make them more attractive to the discerning homeowner.
