Flooring; an easily overlooked amenity in your home and something you pay little mind to on a day-to-day basis. The floors in your home take a daily beating; between children, pets, spills, stains, furniture, etc. Flooring can also take a back seat to larger home improvement projects or costly repairs. The simple truth is that the floors in your home really matter. And they matter even more when you are considering selling your house.
Choosing the right floors for your home sets the design tone for the entire house. Appearance and functionality are huge selling points when your house goes on the market. If you ask most experienced real estate agents they will advise that flooring is a low-cost renovation project that offers a high return on investment. You can bet that buyers who come through your house for showings have those magazine images in mind. They not only want floors in good condition, but materials that match the purpose of each room and look like a million bucks.
It is also widely accepted that, according to buyers, hardwood floors are the most favorable flooring choice on the housing market. 54% of home buyers are willing to pay more for hardwood floors when buying a house. And showing that hardwood floors aren’t just popular among luxury home buyers, a 2017 study from the National Association of Home Builders found that 87% percent of buyers in the $100,000 to $149,999 price range actually require hardwood flooring.
Hardwood floors are timeless, classic, warm and durable. While many sellers can get away with carpeting in the bedrooms, consumers are more drawn to a consistent flooring look throughout the entire home. It is also very important to consider current design trends like rustic tones and farm-house style wood designs.
