Selling your home? A simple flooring change can help attract buyers. If you’re staying, enhance your own home experiences by upgrading your flooring.
CARPET: Carpet keeps homes warm, especially bedrooms. Line wood stairs with a carpet runner to avoid slips and falls. If the carpet is in good shape, a deep cleaning can do wonders for traffic areas.
HARDWOOD: Looking for an elegant, rustic or contemporary feel? Make a bold statement and help rooms like family rooms, dining and living rooms appear larger or more dramatic with hardwoods in different stains colors, wood textures and plank widths.
TILE: Tile is a “must” for wet areas such as kitchens, bathrooms and entryways. Large tile, Listello and unique inlays all provide opportunities to be creative. If you like hardwoods but you’re concerned about heavy, wet traffic or pets scratching your floors, try a wood-grain tile that closely mimics the appearance of wood.
ALTERNATIVES: Rubber and concrete flooring materials offer durable, contemporary options.
