What is the Best Flooring for Your Money?

Make sure you are spending your money wisely on your new flooring.

Whether you are looking to replace the flooring you have walked on for fifteen years in your current home or seeking to remodel your new home before you move in, choosing the best flooring can be overwhelming! How can you be sure that you are getting the best flooring for your family, your style, and your money? Here are some tips for getting the best quality flooring for your money.

Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood flooring is a classic and beautiful choice for your new flooring. Wood offers a huge “wow” factor and can match a huge range of styles and décor preferences. Hardwood flooring does cost more than many other types of flooring, with a price range from $9-$12 per square foot of wood flooring installed. For your living room alone, you could easily pay a few thousand dollars to install your new hardwood flooring. While hardwood flooring costs more to install, that value reflects in the value of your home instantly. Many homeowners opt for hardwood flooring to boost their home’s value and avoid worrying about another costly flooring replacement in the near future.

Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring is easy to clean, resistant to scuffing and scratching, and can be installed at places in your home that wood wouldn’t be appropriate. It is much more cost effective to install laminate flooring, as it costs about $5-$8 per square foot installed. While laminate can be manufactured in styles that mimic wood flooring, it does not have many of the qualities that make hardwood flooring so wonderful. It can show wear and tear much sooner than hardwood flooring and cannot simply be sanded and refinished like wood can. It also does not add as much to your home’s resale value.
