Kitchens and bathrooms might sell homes, but only if they are in pristine condition. If you are thinking about selling your home and want to remodel your bathroom before the sign goes on the lawn, we’ve got a list of bathroom flooring options that you can choose from to help add value and style.
Selling your home can be a real pain, but if you do your homework and give yourself enough leadway, you can get your home ready and make sure that it speaks to the people who might buy it. Choosing a bathroom floor might seem like a thing you can leave until the last minute, but remember that flooring is often difficult to remove and so you want to install a high-quality, durable, and appealing floor.
Ceramic is one of the most popular choices because it is affordable, easy to clean, and comes in endless colors, styles, textures, and is easy to install. However, ceramic is very slippery and can crack with time. Grout can be mixed and matched to help create a unique look to match your bathroom decor, and the ceramic tiles can be cut into a variety of shapes. More and more, ceramic is being upgraded to last longer, look better, provide traction, and to stand the test of time. It’s an easy solution that comes with lots of options and remains a very good investment in your home’s remodel.
For higher-end homes, a ceramic bathroom floor might not do the trick to get homeowners to buy your home. If you put ceramic in a master bathroom where homeowners would expect to see stone, you’ll disappoint them and maybe lose money. It’s important to understand the value of your home and the audience in which you are trying to target for the sale. Stone comes in many forms, colors, finishes, textures, and sizes so you can get just about anything you want at any price point. Spending thousands of dollars on a bathroom floor might seem outlandish, but if you live in an area where that is the expectation of the homes interior, it might be required.
Marble is a classic flooring option for bathrooms and kitchens. It is also quite expensive, but it stands the test of time and can be beautiful for years to come. Because the designs are quite varied, you can do a lot with marble in different shades, styles, and settings. Using marble in tiles in your shower, large tiles on the floor, and even as backsplash against the sink and vanity combination.
When budget is a concern, vinyl might be a good option. Depending on the neighbourhood, buyer expectations, and your budget, vinyl can provide an easy solution that will be durable, provide traction when the floor is wet, and is comfortable under foot. Vinyl has come a long way and a lot of people have to get down really close to the vinyl floor to be able to tell it is vinyl. If you are looking for a quick fix to update your bathroom without a lot of the cost, vinyl is your answer.
