Most, if not all people selling a home want to renovate for profit before they sell and get the best possible price. Renovating on your own can be an exhausting and demanding. It requires a lot of time, energy and effort. So, a helping hand is always appreciated.
One factor that has a big impact on your home’s overall look is its flooring. Here’s a guide on how to renovate a house by choosing the right flooring. Update, modernise, and give your home a new look using these tips.
There’s no place like home — we all look forward to the peace and comfort of being able to relax and unwind at home after a tiring day.
If you want to add warmth, comfort, and softness to your property, choose carpet. Made from natural materials such as wool, carpet can also act as a good sound insulator. Stain-resistant options are the best if you’re aiming to modernise high-use areas like the living room, hallway, or bedrooms.
Carpet comes in a wide variety styles and colours so you’ll have loads of options for your renovation and can tailor your choice to suit your lifestyle and budget.
Floating Timber Floorboards
Timber floors are visually appealing and can give your home a warm glow making it look more cozy and spacious. But they aren’t just inviting, Floating Floorboards will retain heat in cold climates. While they can be quite an expensive option, they’re durable and they can last longer compared to other flooring options. This flooring option is also easy to clean.
TIP: We don’t recommend this flooring option for kitchens and bathrooms.
A cost-effective alternative for timber that is becoming popular is bamboo.
Bamboo is eco-friendly, inexpensive, and looks good. If your budget doesn’t stretch to timber flooring, bamboo is a great alternative; some of its properties are similar to timber and it is low-maintenance. Bamboo is firmer, more sustainable, and a bit more resistant to stains and water damage compared to timber flooring. Plus, bamboo is fire resistant and insect resistant.
TIP: Choose a matte finish instead of a high gloss. It will help you hide inconsistencies.
Tiles are great for your kitchen, bathroom, and laundry.
Tiles are durable, affordable, and readily available. This option is easy to maintain and can help preserve indoor air quality. We recommend you choosing tiles if you’re living in an area with a hotter climate. Tiled floors can be hard to walk on, so may not be your perfect match if you’re suffering from back problems, but they are a hypoallergenic, durable, easy-to-maintain, beautiful flooring option!
Choose between the two kinds of vinyl: vinyl on a roll or vinyl planks.
Opt for the latter if you’re styling an area of your home. Vinyl planks are softer underfoot compared to tiles and are a great option for all types of weather. They’re also hard wearing, easy to maintain, and a waterproof vinyl plank is also available.
If you’re aiming to update your whole property, consider vinyl on a roll. This option is cheap but isn’t really made for styling. Like the vinyl planks, they also suit a range of climates.
