Start from the Ground Up: Replacing Carpet in Your Home

One way to make your home sale ready is to replace worn and tired carpeting! Here are some popular flooring options to choose from that will give your house a fresh, new look.

Carpeting

Carpeting is the go-to choice when it comes to the least expensive flooring option, and has the added benefit of being the best solution to covering up imperfections.

A textured saxony, for example, is a lower-priced option that never goes out of style. If you’re considering carpeting that appeals to individualized tastes, take a long look at the long-pile frieze popularized by Austin Powers or check out carpeting with a design, such as a cut-and-loop style.

Tile

As the affordable alternative to natural stone, tile flooring is ideal for kitchens, bathrooms and just about anywhere else where water comes in to play. Tile is also better suited for high traffic areas that experience lots of wear and tear such as a recreation room. Take good care of it and the tiling will last for years.

This year, popular tiling styles feature large wood-look planks, marble- and concrete-look flooring, and for that eye-catching appeal – metallic tile.

Hardwood

Hardwood comes in a variety of colors and patterns to suit just about any home!

Red oak remains popular and Hickory is a wise choice if you’re looking for that rustic look and flooring that’s more durable than others. For smaller spaces, wider- and longer-planked flooring creates the illusion of a larger room. And, for more of an eclectic feel, install random plank flooring in different sizes and varying lengths of boards in focal points of the house, such as the living and dining rooms.

Natural stone

Like true love, stone flooring lasts forever. By far the most expensive material, this flooring is maintenance-free and ideal for areas of your house that transition from indoors to outdoors. If you live in a warmer climate, stone tiling is a great pick because of its natural ability to stay cool to the touch.

So, head to your closest home improvement store, find a flooring to your liking and transform your home within hours.
