How to Choose Your Home Flooring

Summer is the best season to buy and sell homes. When selling your home or buying a home there are a lot of things that play into whether someone will buy a home or not. Flooring can be a make or break deal for some families depending on their circumstances. That is why Eid-Co Homes makes sure to build homes with materials that are loved by all, namely hardwood flooring and tile. Knowing what will sell we want to help those who are renovating their home before they sell or those who are looking at buying a home. Flooring can be tricky because there are so many different options. How do you know which is the best option for you or to put in the home that you’re selling?

The best option that will allow for the greatest return is hard flooring. This means that you’ve got two options when getting the most for your buck, wood flooring and stone. This can be an expensive venture depending on the type of hardwood flooring you’re looking at getting. There are certain types of hardwood flooring that does better with when you have kids or dogs. These types of wood flooring are typically harder types of wood which can withstand dog nails and active kids. Here are several types of options when you’re looking at buying a home or renovating it to be able to sell. Keep in mind that what you put into your home is what you’re going to get out of it.

Brazilian Walnut or otherwise known as Ipe is a particularly hard and dense wood. However, because it is an exotic wood it can be more expensive. This means you’re able to price your home higher. You’ll need to calculate the return for what you’re paying out. The next choice is hard maple. This is different than just maple, so you must specify what you want specifically. The third choice that is available is bamboo. This might sound like a soft type of material but in fact depending on the manufacture it can be incredibly hard. The way to tell how hard it is, is by looking at the Janka ranting. Bamboo can get up to 5000 which is very high on the scale. The higher the rating the harder the wood. You can look at the rating for any hardwood flooring to know what you’re getting.

Stone is one of the better options when it comes to kitchens and bathrooms. Tile isn’t as popular as wood in the home but if wood is too expensive then a nice neutral tile flooring will help in the resale value of your home. There are different types of tiles that you can choose depending on the budget that you have and, on the look, that you’re wanting to go for. You really want to make sure that this is going to blend with the rest of your home while still giving it an updated look. There are types of tiles that look like hardwood flooring. There are a lot of different options out there but regardless of what you choose you want a design and color that is going to be timeless.

When looking at the home you’re buying think about the maintenance you’ll have to do in the long run with kids and pets. You want to make sure that it is as little maintenance as possible. This is helpful for whoever looking to make some changes in their current home and those who are looking to buy a home.
