As a first-time home buyer, you likely have a checklist of questions. Everything can feel new and exciting — and a little overwhelming. From plumbing and electrical to roofing and flooring, there are a million little details you never had to consider before.
Let’s explore common questions about flooring that first-time home buyers face, and point you in the right direction to find the answers.
What Are My Options For Changing the Flooring?
Have you fallen in love with your new prospective home but aren’t quite sold on the flooring? The house may come with this flooring, but it doesn’t have to be there forever. You have a world of flooring options at your fingertips, from refinishing the floor to give it a new and shiny look to installing an entirely new flooring system.
From hardwood and luxury vinyl to classic tile and carpet, there are a plethora of ways to install new flooring and make your new home a dream.
Which Flooring Type Is Best For Each Room?
It’s important to consider the room functions and common uses. Think about factors such as frequency of traffic, the possibility of water damage and the kinds of activities that will be performed in each room.
If you’re a family with young children or pets, you’ll want flooring that is durable and easy to clean, such as luxury vinyl or laminate. For the bedrooms and living rooms, you may opt for hardwood flooring.
The choice is yours, and considering these factors will help you come to a decision that’s both personalized and practical.
How Much Maintenance Does The Flooring Require?
This common question depends on which flooring your new house will have. Some floors, such as hardwood, tend to be more high maintenance due to its polished finish. This requires more upkeep and regular cleaning to keep it looking as good as new. Other floors, like laminate or luxury vinyl planks, hide imperfections better and are less likely to show the marks of wear and tear. These need less maintenance and require less attention from you.
