Owning a home is an important financial investment and one that people seek to grow over time. Our floors may be underfoot and out of mind, but you shouldn’t write off their potential value. They can have a lot of impact on the resale value of your home should you ever decide to put it on the market. In today’s blog, the experts at Floor Coverings International Orange County NY are going to talk about some of the ways that floors add value to the home.
When a potential buyer walks into your home they want to feel inspired. They’ve watched episodes of HGTV, or flipped through the pages of Architectural Digest and seen spectacular homes. If they walk through your front door and see the worn-out carpet or fading linoleum, you won’t create an impression that motivates someone to buy.
The type of material you choose plays an essential role in adding resale value. Hardwood floors have long been a classic addition, and a sought after feature. Many homebuyers would be willing to pay more to have hardwood floors when buying a house.
Another luxury material that is attractive to buyers is slate tile. It is an upscale and stunning addition to any kitchen, bathroom, or mudroom. Like hardwood, high-quality slate is durable and can last for years without replacement.
Be mindful of the way your floors flow from room to room. While it wouldn’t be workable to have the same material in every space, buyers also don’t want to see a patchwork of different colors and materials. Even if they are luxury materials, inevitable renovations are in store for the new homeowner to correct the disjointed feeling of the space. Try to keep the material or color as consistent as possible for appealing interior design.
