As the old saying goes, your home is your most valuable asset and growing that value means making the right choices when it comes time to renovate. Also, as one of the largest, longest lasting, and more noticeable aspects of your home, making the right choice can have a long term effect on your enjoyment too.
1. Hardwood Flooring
Yes, yes, we all know that Hardwood will boost your home’s value more than any other choice. That’s because it has a reputation for providing a long lasting, beautiful look that never really goes out of style. However, getting the right hardwood floor is also an important consideration. While hardwood itself may never go out of style, colours do. You (or a future homeowner) may want to change up the look. Choosing a durable floor with a thicker wear layer and better construction, makes that a much better possibility over less expensive floors with thinner wear layers. We have a wide range of floors from some of the industries best manufacturers.
2. Tile & Stone Flooring
Tile is certainly durable and when it’s well done, it retains its appeal indefinitely. Indeed, think about some of the most beautiful architecture around and you’ll likely have visions of natural stone and modern format tiles come to mind. We’re proud to have the largest selection of tile and natural stone in Kelowna, including many exclusive and large format products you won’t find elsewhere. Tile is easy to clean, scratch resistant, and with a little care and maintenance, will look as great the day you sell the home as the day you moved in.
You might be wondering how vinyl flooring—the stuff you always seem to be tearing out when you’re renovating—could be one of the best ways to add value to your home. Well, there are two reasons. First, vinyl flooring has come an incredibly long way since the old linoleum products we’re used to. It’s very durable, beautiful, and can be repaired easily. New patterns and textures provide a stunning look to kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas with high traffic (and often wet environments). The other reason is that vinyl is also very economical. If you’re considering a sale in the near future, vinyl flooring can help breathe new life into older spaces and increase the value when it matters most.
