There are a plethora of elements that will be considered and accounted for when analyzing and determining the value and resale value of your home. However, each individual element of your home’s architecture must be taken to determine how, exactly, it fits together with the other elements to create the design, style, and atmosphere of the home. It can be said that one of the greatest elements to consider for your home’s value is overlooked, as it is beneath you. Literally, it is beneath you, under your feet; your floor!

Initial Investment

Whether investing in and installing new flooring is an option that is financially feasible is a question that is only natural to ask yourself. To improve the value and resale value of your home, you need to factor in what you stand to gain (financially) after the cost of the initial investment including installation. For hardwood floors, for instance, it can be a higher cost, but the overall investment helps to increase the value of your home.

Value for Long-term Most Important

The lifespan of the floor itself is important to consider when you are selecting a floor for your home. While some materials, such as laminate or carpet, might have a lower cost for the initial investment, their value tends to decrease over time. Carpet and laminate can fade and wear out over time. Other flooring options, however, such as tile or hardwood are able to last for decades before they show signs of deterioration, yet they have a higher cost associated with them for the initial investment.

Considering Living Conditions

It isn’t an automatic guarantee that you will get some sort of significant return upon your investment simply because the flooring option you chose is expensive. Every room in the home has a certain function. It is important to consider the living conditions of each room when it comes to choosing flooring. Hardwood floors, for example, certainly add a sense of style and elegance. However, there are areas of your home, like the kitchen or bathroom, where that style of flooring is simply inappropriate and unsuitable.
