If you’re thinking about putting your house on the market, you’re probably also considering taking on a few home improvement projects. After all, a few small investments can bump up your asking price. With that in mind, you know that it’s important to capitalize on projects that can increase your ROI. Flooring is something that’s featured in every single room of your home, so it’s important that you factor this in when you’re making home improvement decisions. But the question remains: how does engineered hardwood flooring increase your home’s value?
Engineered Hardwood Floors Last Longer
Engineered hardwood floors are much more resilient than other flooring options. Carpets, for example, should be replaced every 6 to 7 years due to lower durability, whereas properly maintained engineered hardwood floors can last up to 30 years. The more items in a home that need to be fixed or replaced, the less appealing the home becomes. Even if budget is an issue, consider replacing the flooring in the most lived in spaces of your home such as the living room or dining room before later extending to areas like bedrooms or offices. By replacing your floors with engineered hardwood now, you’re saving the next homeowner the hassle of replacing flooring later on down the road (which can mean a higher asking price for your home).
Engineered Hardwood Floors Are More Palatable
We all know that people have different tastes. The carpet that one homeowner loves can drive away potential buyers. In fact, carpet is often replaced once the “For Sale” sign is taken out of the front yard. Engineered hardwood flooring offers more natural tones that appeal to a wide variety of styles and preferences. Everyone selling a home knows how important it is to put your best foot forward when your put your home on the market, and that applies to the state of your home! Make sure it appeals to a larger audience by choosing floors that can accommodate different styles.
Engineered Hardwood Floors Can Improve the Overall Quality of Your Home
Did you know that carpet can worsen your home’s air quality by trapping things like allergens and scents in its fibers? Along with this, carpets can hold stains and are quicker to show damage from regular wear and tear. Once your furniture is moved out of the house, signs of sun damage, indents from furniture, and tricky stains will only become more apparent. Not only are engineered hardwood floors easier to clean and maintain, but they can also elevate the look of your home and make rooms appear even larger. Create a space that your family and future owners will feel at ease living in by providing durable, longer lasting, and higher value flooring.
