High Impact | Remodel On A Budget With New Flooring | Wilmington NC Real Estate

More Homeowner Tips – www.WilmingtonNC-realestate.com

Wilmington NC Homeowners have more choices than ever in floor coverings. Today’s choices can go a long way toward redecorating a home without spending a fortune. Upgrading flooring is a good option to choose now, while you’re living in your home. It’s also likely to pay off later, when the time comes to sell.

New innovations have enabled homeowners to use flooring as a way to decorate rather than just “cushion and cover.” Despite the ongoing popularity and utility of carpeting, the use of hard surfaces has been on the rise, with stone, tile and wood leading the way. Hard-surface flooring can not only add visual appeal, it can improve indoor air quality (especially for allergy sufferers) by minimizing accumulations of dust, mold, mildew and bacteria–often more common with carpeted interiors.

There are also more types of hardwoods on the market now–bamboo is the newest–that come in a variety of shades, widths¬†and grains. You can use wood to give your home a look of richness, elegance or country-casual feel.

Natural stone–granite, marble, travertine, limestone and slate–is more sought after these days. And one of the fastest growing “hard” coverings of choice, laminate flooring offers good looks, durability and easy installation. It comes in planks and tiles, with a range of patterns modeled on hardwoods, ceramic tile, marble and stone.
