It is important to factor in the cost of new flooring when remodeling a house. One of the best things about new floors is that you can model an entire room around them so finding stunning, quality choices is essential. But when you’re a homeowner renovating on an already tight budget, finding an inexpensive flooring alternative is even more important.
Luckily, there is a wide variety of different styles of flooring, all available at a wide range of prices. Owners of homes who might feel the pinch need to be more frugal, if you want the best of both worlds, a more affordable choice that improves the look and style of your home, there are a few suggestions. Here are four of your home’s most affordable flooring options.
Vinyl Sheet Flooring
For homeowners on a tight budget, vinyl sheet flooring has often given an incredibly inexpensive price point. The good news is that for affordability, you no longer have to compromise elegance. Vinyl sheet flooring has been greatly enhanced and modified through advanced imaging techniques to reflect more modern style flooring and even replicate hardwood planks and natural stone tiles.
Another inexpensive flooring choice for homeowners is laminate flooring. Laminate flooring is equivalent to vinyl planks, but provides a method of installation for click-lock. The laminate flooring of today is still highly robust, much more so than LVT, and the graphics are amazingly realistic. For homeowners who want the appearance of real hardwoods, laminate flooring may provide a more affordable option. Laminate flooring, however is water resistant but not waterproof. So, for kitchens, bathrooms or other home areas that appear to have spilled puddles it might not be your best choice.
Luxury Vinyl Planks & Tiles
Luxury vinyl plank and tiles do have some very budget friendly pricing so do not brush off LVP as a high-cost product. Advanced imaging techniques have come a long way, and vinyl planks and tiles may also imitate almost any material. Vinyl planks can look like hardwood, available in a range of visuals of painted and distressed reclaimed wood. LVP is also waterproof! This flooring can be a great addition to any home with high traffic areas and pets.
If you have your heart set on real hardwood, but you find that many of them are a little more costly than you expected, there is still hope. While hardwood is typically not the most affordable flooring, there are still options.
