One of the best ways to increase a value of a home, or make a home feel as though it’s truly yours, is to put in a new wood floor. However, there are a few tips that homeowners new to flooring should consider as a guide when they are deciding the type of wood floor that would best suit their home.
Real wood or solid plank flooring is definitely the most luxurious choice, but it’s also the most expensive. Laminate wood flooring can look very realistic, at often a fifth of the price. This means you will need to carefully consider your budget, and just how much you will increase the value of your home through your modifications.
You may wish to go with a common wood like oak, because you want to appeal to as many people as you possibly can. Gray woods are trending right now, but in the past both light colored and dark colored woods have been preferred. In addition to this, you may want to consider the fact that soft wood requires a lot of maintenance. It may not matter to you, but your potential buyers may be aware of this fact as well.
