How Much Does New Flooring Affect the Resale Value of My Home?

How Much Does New Flooring Affect the Resale Value of My Home?

house-values-flooringWhen it comes to increasing the resale value of your home, it is very difficult to come up with a universal formula to determine what type of improvement will bring the highest return on the investment, but in most cases, consistent upgrades such as replacing aged, warping or unattractive flooring does make a huge difference. New flooring does increase the appeal of any property, but the choice of the floor type should be informed by the market you are placing your property on, so here are a few tips and ideas about how to choose your new flooring.

Hardwood Flooring

Certainly the most elegant flooring of them all, hardwood floors definitely add value to your home and can make a very strong and convincing argument during the resale process. Healthy indoor air, superior insulation properties, resistance, durability and a beautiful, organic appearance are all features that can be successfully leveraged but be prepared that the installation of new hardwood flooring will require you to make a relatively substantial investment. According to some experts, a 1,000 dollar investment into hardwood flooring will translate into 1,500 dollars added value, but you do need to spend that money before it comes back to you.

Laminate Planks and Tiles

Laminate flooring is a relatively new invention that offers you the benefits of wood-like appearance without the costs of hardwood flooring. Laminate planks and tiles are available in a very large variety, allowing you to choose from among numerous different colors, textures, and sizes and laminate flooring is quick and easy to install, too. It can go into any room and it can even be installed on top of the existent flooring, so if you need a quick fix before you put your property out on the market and you have a budget you want to stick to, laminate flooring offers an efficient way to transform your home and to add value without having to invest a fortune.

Ceramic Tile

Ceramic tiles exude style, class, elegance and sophistication, so they definitely add resale value to your home. Ceramic tiles allow for extraordinary design solutions and are nowadays used for any room, not only for kitchens and bathrooms. They are also very durable and very easy to maintain, but you can enjoy all these benefits only if your flooring is installed professionally – the grout lines need to be perfectly straight and the tiles must be perfectly aligned, too, otherwise you will not get the desired visual appeal.


Long used as a flooring material in the Mediterranean area, cork is becoming more and more popular nowadays for its versatility, its great, textured looks, and its durability. Cork is environment-friendly and safe to use and it definitely adds value to your property without requiring a major investment, but to make the most of the great qualities of the material, make sure its appearance is suitable for the overall design and style of your home.

New flooring does affect the resale value of homes in a positive way. The choice of materials depends largely on the target market and the style of the property, so the best solution may be a combination of the available floor types, a possible distribution being hardwood for rooms that feature a classic design, laminate for children’s rooms, cork for a modern, friendly bedroom, and ceramics for the dining room, the kitchen and the bathroom.
