Fall is the time for home projects. As you plan your next flooring project, we have 3 questions to ask yourself about your budget.
1.What is the cost difference between the different types of flooring?
While flooring cost plays an important role in your selection, lifestyle and use should not be forgotten. Consider how you use the space. Do you have children or pets? Is the room near an exterior door with a lot of foot traffic?
With so many flooring types and options available, the price of flooring can vary within each category. By setting a budget, you can begin to narrow your flooring selection. After you have determined a budget, it’s best to consult with a local Carpet One Floor & Home expert. For example, you may discover you can get the hardwood you thought would be too pricey with a lower-cost flooring option such as laminate or luxury vinyl tile. A Carpet One Floor & Home consultant can help you discover flooring choices that fit within your lifestyle needs and budget.
2.How much of my overall room remodel should be spent on flooring?
There’s no right or wrong amount of money to spend on flooring. As one of the most used items in the home, flooring can make a big impact, dramatically changing the overall look and feel of a room. The budget you determine depends largely on the value you place on this long-term investment. However, the most important factor is to choose flooring that matches your lifestyle and design needs. Be sure to consider the resale value of your home when making flooring decisions.
3.How do I estimate my total cost for flooring?
If you’ve selected a product, estimating your total flooring material cost is easy using the Carpet One calculator tool. Simply add the price per square foot of the product along with the dimensions of your room to get a total flooring material cost estimate.
