If increasing your home’s value is an important factor, consider the floor’s durability and whether the type of floor will integrate well with different flooring styles in your home. Hardwood flooring and tile are two great options that meet both style and durability and will increase your home value in the process.
Vinyl floors (both plank and tile) are popular waterproof options. Ceramic and porcelain tile are good options for wet areas as well.
There are many factors you’ll want to consider as you plan a flooring renovation. Some of these include the placement and general environment of your floor, the subfloor, the species of wood, and the width of plank.
Engineered hardwood is a hardwood flooring option that works well for wide plank floors and higher humidity spaces like basements. Engineered hardwood is different from solid hardwood because it has a plywood base with a layer of hardwood on top. This differs from laminate, as the top layer of laminate flooring is printed.
Vinyl is a printed synthetic material that is often softer and waterproof, while laminate is a harder more dent-resistant wood by-product with a printed surface.
It depends on the type of subfloor you have and the area it's going into. If you’re installing a bathroom floor, you'll want tile or vinyl because it performs better under humid and wet conditions.
Vinyl is a good DIY option, but typically, you want to leave the hardwood and tile installation to the professionals.
