If you’re considering selling your home, you might want to think about installing new hardwood floors20140205_144556 if you don’t have them already. While installing new carpet is an option as well, it will simply retain the resale value of your home rather than cause an increase in value. 

When considering installing hardwood floors, consider the rooms that are seen most by guests. Kitchens, dining rooms, living rooms and foyers are great places to start when you are thinking about making the investment. If you already have hardwood floors in those areas, the master bedroom/suite is another great place to consider.

If you have hardwood floors underneath carpet or vinyl flooring, definitely consider having them refinished for a boost in home sale value.

Adding to their aesthetic value, hardwood floors can be restained multiple times, while other flooring types such as carpet need to be replaced regularly particularly right before a home goes on the market. Hardwood floors also don’t harbor any allergens and are overall very low maintenance.
