UK retailer, Stories Flooring, reveal 5 ways to add value to your property with the right flooring. If you are planning on selling your property, there are lots of ways you can add value onto its asking price. Changing the flooring in the home is just one way you can add value without breaking the bank.

While solid wood floors are known to add the most value, they can be expensive. They also aren’t practical in every room. Other types of floors can add value, you just need to know what to pay attention to.

Want to know what to look out for? Read on below…

1. Focus on looks

The first feature to focus on when trying to add value to the home, is looks. You’ll want to find something that looks luxurious but won’t break the bank.

Wood flooring will always remain the most popular with homeowners. However, you don’t have to invest in solid wood. There are all kinds of wood-effect floors on the market. If you want the most natural wooden look, Stories Flooring’s engineered wood flooring is ideal. However, if you want to save the most money, SPC or laminate floors can also work well.

While non-wood floors won’t generate as much value, they can still boost the asking price if you choose one that looks luxurious.

2. Make sure it is practical

If there’s one thing that’s going to boost the value of the home, it’s easy maintenance. The more practical the floor is, the more sought after it will be.

Some of the easiest types of floors to look after are LVT and SPC floors. As they boast a naturally water-resistant design, you can easily mop them as and when it is needed. Just remember with LVT flooring, unless you have a waterproof specific floor, it is best to avoid installing it in the bathroom.

3. Know which rooms to focus on

Buyers will pay more attention to the floor in some rooms than others. If you only have a limited budget, you’ll want to focus on the kitchen, bathroom, and lounge.
