HOME FLOORING & MONEY SAVING TIPS

HOME FLOORING & MONEY SAVING TIPS

Posted: Friday October 29, 2021

Replacing the old flooring in your home with new is a great way to increase your home’s value and update its overall appearance. That said, purchasing new flooring can be expensive. If you’re working within a budget, it can be challenging to find the right flooring to fit your needs and price range. 

In the article below, we’ll explore a couple of tips to help you get the best flooring for your home while staying within your budget. 

TRENDING FLOORING IN 2021

As far as flooring goes, you can expect to see lots of laminate, vinyl, tile, and carpeting in homes this year, with special features like waterproofing, eco-friendliness, and American-made being top of the list. Hardwood floors or the impression of hardwood floors will be infinitely popular as well because they offer a durable warmth most other flooring options can’t match. 

Even though hardwood and the hardwood floor look is slated to be most popular in the upcoming year, other flooring options like tile, vinyl, and carpeting will still be great options in any home. After a tough 2020, everyone is looking for 2021 to be a year of rebirth, so it’s a good time to consider updating your home’s flooring with something fresh. Here’s how to do that on a budget. 

SAVING MONEY ON FLOORING

If you like the look of hardwood but your budget can’t quite swing actual hardwood flooring, consider a laminate alternative. Thanks to advanced printing technology, laminate flooring looks a lot like real hardwood, and you have a ton of options when it comes to design and color. Also, laminate flooring is extremely water-resistant and scratch-resistant, which makes it a great choice, especially if you have pets or young children. 

If you prefer the look of stone flooring, laminate is also a great choice since it can be printed to mimic the beauty of natural stone as well. Ultimately, if you’re on a budget, nothing matches the beauty and price of natural hardwood or stone better than laminate flooring.

HOW TO CHOOSE FLOORING FOR YOUR HOME

As well as sticking within your budget, it’s a good idea to choose flooring that’s durable and timeless. Neutral colors are best as they coordinate with many different designs, but you shouldn’t be afraid to play around with color if that’s your thing. In the end, you want to choose flooring that not only lasts a long time but suits your personality as well. 

As you go about choosing flooring for your home, consider the going trends, upfront costs, and ongoing maintenance of each type, and then decide based on the style and price that fits your personality and budget the best.
