Freshening Up Your Floors
Feb 11, 2022
It’s those first few days when the cold breaks that we can really enjoy being outside again. That’s when the time-honored tradition of spring cleaning kicks in. But this year, we’re talking about more than just washing windows. This year we’re thinking bigger. We’re thinking new floors. Your old floors may have gotten you through another winter with boots dragging water and salt all over them, but chances are they might not be in mint condition. Celebrate this spring by replacing your floors with beautiful, high-performance flooring that will have your whole house feeling like new.
Springtime is a popular time of year to buy and sell new homes. New floors are well worth the investment to get a leg up on a competitive housing market. Before you list, check out some flooring options that can revitalize your space.
Luxury Vinyl Floors
Luxury vinyl floors are the fastest-growing flooring option for good reason. They are affordable, durable, and easy. Luxury vinyl floors are designed to look like tile, stone, or hardwood for a timeless look that will last a lifetime. Whether it’s you or a potential buyer, you’ll love how easy it is to live with luxury vinyl floors.
To make spring cleaning easier and to increase the longevity of your floors, check out waterproof floors. Waterproof floors are now available in all sorts of designs, patterns, and materials –including carpets. And if you or potential buyers have a family, this low-maintenance, highly durable option is perfect. All you have to do is choose the style you like in tile, hardwood, luxury vinyl, and yes, even carpet.
Always a timeless option, hardwood floors not only add value to your home but also bring elegance and sophistication that are harder to come by with other flooring materials. There are plenty of different species of wood, sizes, and stains, so you’ll easily be able to find hardwood floors that match your style. In terms of selling, most hardwood floors have the advantage that they can be refinished rather than replaced, which is appealing to future buyers because it can save them some costs while allowing them to add their own style.
If you want the look of hardwood without incurring the high cost that typically comes with it, laminate flooring is a great option. It’s lower maintenance than hardwood and designed to withstand more of a beating while mimicking the wood grain look you want. Made with resin and fiberboard materials, laminate floors are a low-cost option that boast high-performance features like scratch and stain resistance.
