Flooring Choice and Home Value

As a homeowner, you will know that many factors weigh into your home’s sale value. One of the most overlooked aspects is your flooring choice.

Believe it or not, your home’s flooring will significantly impact the sale value of your home, and each type of flooring can either affect valuation – or increase it. If you look to maximise your home’s sale value, here are how the different flooring options are factoring in.


Carpets have always been popular choices for homeowners due to their soft, warm and comfortable feel. However, carpets are also one of the biggest concerns when selling a home.

Whilst a well-maintained and cared-for carpet can be an attractive selling point for buyers, it can also be a turnoff if it is old, stained or dispell an unpleasant odour. You may have to pay for a professional carpet cleaning service or replace the carpet if it is in poor condition. Buyers usually do not want carpets in the bathroom, preferring more waterproof options such as Luvanto luxury vinyl flooring or other options.


Hardwood flooring has always been popular and seems a much sought-after feature with buyers. Whilst they can significantly increase the value of your home, it is essential to remember that not all hardwood flooring is created equal.

High-quality hardwood flooring that is constantly well-maintained will have a greater impact on home value. However, hardwood in poor condition, made from a cheaper type/brand of wood or requires extensive treatment and repair will be very costly to you upfront. The good news is the same aesthetic can be achieved through luxury vinyl brands such as Invictus or Quick-Step vinyl flooring – both much more durable and cost-effective over hardwood.

Luxury Vinyl Flooring/Tile (LVT)

Luxury vinyl flooring (LVT) is reliable flooring for areas where moisture is a concern, being 100% waterproof and now considered the number one flooring choice for bathrooms and kitchens.

Vinyl is easy to clean and maintain and sells at a fraction of the price of other flooring options. Polyflor and Karndean Click vinyl flooring are attractive selling points for buyers, as they are highly sustainable and have a healthy life of up to 25 years when properly maintained. Even if certain planks or tiles suffer any damage from deep scratches, they are incredibly simple to replace and won’t break the bank in doing so.

In closing, the choice of the right flooring, maintaining it to the highest quality and providing ease in care for future buyers helps ensure that your home is appealing to a wider range of potential buyers and maximises the sale value.
