FLOORING UPGRADES THAT INCREASE OVERALL HOME VALUE

If you’re thinking you’ll be selling soon, flooring is one of the most important factors when it comes to selling. However, not all flooring will give you the best return on investment. Luckily, we’ve picked the top four flooring upgrades that actually improve the value of your home:

 

HARDWOOD FLOORING

Hardwood flooring tops our list because it’s typically the most desirable flooring that buyers look for. Wood flooring not only looks gorgeous, but it’s also durable and versatile with so many different colors and stains.

 

CERAMIC TILE

Ceramic tile is a fantastic option, especially for kitchens and bathrooms. Ceramic flooring is water-proof and stain resistant. Plus, these tiles are very durable and hard to crack. If installed properly, ceramic tile can last 10-20 years and longer if maintained. What’s more, if a single tile does break, it’s easy to replace.

 

PORCELAIN TILE

Porcelain tile is more expensive than ceramic, and it needs to be professionally installed, but the higher price tag is there for a good reason. Porcelain flooring is denser and more durable than ceramic, and it holds up for decades! Savvy buyers are particularly attracted to porcelain tile, which is often used in high-end remodeling projects like bathrooms.

 

VINYL FLOORING

Vinyl flooring has come a long way. Now, you can choose from a wide array of luxury vinyl that is designed to simulate the look and feel of hardwoods or tiles. Vinyl is a less expensive option and it’s ideal for renovations on a budget that still significantly impact your home’s value. Moreover, vinyl flooring stands up well to heavy foot traffic, making it an excellent option for families with kids and pets, and it even helps to reduce noise!

 

No matter which flooring option you pick from this list, you’re sure to improve your home’s value, especially if you’re replacing carpet, which is the least desirable flooring option in today’s market. Fortunately, these options are great for any budget, and they are worth the investment!
