Best Flooring Options
Deciding on what types of flooring to install in your house can be overwhelming! With options like wood, vinyl, laminate, carpet and ceramic tile, you will want to consider several factors when making your choice. First, consider what rooms you are flooring. You may want to keep it consistent throughout the entire house, or you may want to mix it up. You might want to install carpet in the bedrooms and living room, and install wood or tile in the kitchen and bathrooms. Today we will share the top 7 types of flooring for your house, and share the best flooring options for each room and purpose.
If the current economy has put the squeeze on your budget or any remodeling plans, you may be able to add some color or flair to a room with a new area rug. Area rugs are enjoying renewed popularity for floor coverings this year, and they can add a nice touch without redoing an entire room.
In short, the answer is “yes.” Replacing your old flooring before selling will not only improve the look of your home, but will also increase its resale value.
Realtor.com estimates the return on investment to be 70 to 80% for installing hardwood floors, and suggests that wood floors can boost the sales price of your home as much as 2.5%.
Another survey shows that 54% of home buyers are willing to pay more for hardwood floors when buying a house, adding more than $2,000 to the average sales price of the home.

“Bryan has always been helpful, friendly, and very timely in getting back to me on questions or info on our rug purchase & blinds. Our installer Ed was very efficient, fast, and very concerned about clean-up in the area and gave tips on keeping dust/static off of the blinds. I would highly recommend Elizabethtown Flooring and the whole team. Jenise has been helpful also – my friends have already seen the great results.”
