When choosing flooring for your Kennett Square home, it’s always smart to consider the future. The right choice could pay for itself. Floor Coverings International Brandywine Valley has compiled some flooring upgrades that are most likely to improve the value of your home!
When you think about flooring that adds value to your home, hardwood is usually the first that comes to mind. Hardwood flooring is a sought-after addition to any home. To add value with hardwood floors but save on materials and installation, go with engineered hardwood. Engineered hardwood planks have a real hardwood veneer with a plywood center and are indiscernible from solid hardwood. Since engineered hardwood is crafted with real hardwood, it can be advertised as such.
Natural Stone Tile
Natural stone is beautiful, elegant, and durable. Marble, sandstone, travertine, granite, and slate will all add resale value to your home. Natural stone will stand out as a luxurious, unexpected addition to any home. These materials are expensive, however, and more of an investment than other options.
If you’re on a tight budget but need to replace old flooring, wood-look laminate is an excellent choice. Laminate is affordable, durable, and can mimic the look of various hardwood species. To the untrained eye, laminate flooring is near identical to hardwood. While it might not have the same value as hardwood in a home buyers’ eyes, it’s a much better alternative to outdated, aged flooring.
Updated Bathroom Tile
Replacing old, outdated tile with a clean new look is another budget-friendly way to add value to your home. Porcelain and ceramic tile last a long time, which means that many homes end up with tile that looks old and out of style. Fortunately, tile is also easy to replace and install. Consider going with a neutral new look for your bathroom, such as a simple white porcelain. If you’d prefer a pop of color, though, pay attention to the color wheel when choosing the perfect color scheme.
