Thinking of renovating your home? Your flooring should be one of the first considerations of any remodel. But choosing the best flooring for your Vancouver or Richmond home doesn’t have to be complicated or daunting.

Our flooring experts wrangled up this list of the best tips for choosing the right flooring for your remodel this year.

 

Consider your lifestyle when choosing flooring

When choosing which flooring is right for your family, it is important to consider each member. Maybe you’re thinking about getting a new puppy, or your son is constantly trekking dirt all over the house – in those cases, it might be best to steer away from carpet in common areas or choose stain-resistant carpet.

Choose the right flooring for your budget

When budgeting for your flooring update, it is important to consider not just the upfront cost, but the lifetime cost and value of your flooring. For example, some higher-cost flooring types may have a high durability factor, whereas a lower-cost model might need to be refinished, replaced or otherwise cleaned within the next few years – sometimes negating the upfront cost.

It is also important to consider how long you intend on living in your home. If you have no plans of moving and are hoping to steer away from another floor makeover for as long as possible, choosing durable floors that won’t look dated are an excellent choice. Though you may have to spend a few more dollars upfront, the lifetime cost of one floor upgrade will be far less than two.

 

Decide which rooms you’ll renovate

Since we don’t use each of the rooms in our homes the same way, why would we have the same type of flooring in each of them? When planning your 2017 renovation, consider which rooms you will renovate.
