How to add value with wood flooring
If you’re familiar with what’s trendy in the flooring world, you’ll know that wood flooring is one of the most popular choices available on the market. Coming in so many colours, finishes, patterns, wood types and thicknesses, it’s sometimes nearly impossible to narrow down your choices, but the good news is that there’s something for everyone! Wood flooring is also very durable and practical, but what if we said that you could add value to your home by installing wood flooring, as well as your home looking fabulous? That means if you spend a significant amount of money on your new wood flooring, it can often end up paying for itself in the long run.
Now it’s impossible to give an exact figure on how much value your wood floor is going to add. But it’s not just financial value that it’s going to add, wood flooring is incredibly popular and will be perfect to attract potential buyers when you do come to sell.
One of the main factors to consider with wood flooring is underfloor heating, a hugely popular feature in today’s world. Solid wood is not compatible with under-floor heating unfortunately, however engineered wood is. Therefore, when you are shopping for your wood flooring, it is worth bearing this in mind to make your home as sellable as possible.
When it comes to sell, potential buyers will look at features of your home that you can’t or are not easy to change, which includes the floor. Although you can change the flooring, it’s expensive and disruptive, therefore installing a good quality wood floor will make their vision come much easier.
Wood flooring is not only gorgeous and luxurious, but also has a versatile appearance, going with all interior types from classic, contemporary to rustic. This means that installing your wood flooring, we would say, will appeal to all tastes. You want your buyers’ vision of seeing themselves living in your home as easy as possible, and wood flooring is the best place to start.
