Our kids have left for college and we’re remodeling our home to sell it. What flooring should we use?

Maybe you did a search online for “Arizona carpet stores near me” or “Arizona flooring stores near me”. With a renovation, you should set a budget. If your remodel is for a quick resale, vinyl tiles will show well in all the rooms.

Vinyl tiles are easy to add, you can take advantage of our free-installation offer, and vinyl tiles are cheaper than other flooring options but just as lovely and durable. They’ll show well with upgraded cabinetry and a fresh coat of paint. If budget isn’t an opti, natural hardwood floors or natural stone tiles would make a great choice.

I’m starting a remodel. What’s the best flooring for kitchens?

Remodeling typically depends on the budget you want to set up. If you have a specific budget in mind, vinyl plank floors are a cost-efficient solution. You’ll also find that vinyl tile that resembles marble or natural stone will work nicely with most decors and is budget-friendly.

Vinyl Plank Flooring

We just bought our first home and it’s a total gut renovation. What flooring trends should we consider?

There are a lot of options with new flooring for a gut renovation. To help you narrow down your selections, start by speaking to a flooring specialist and an interior decorator who can help you with mapping out the changes you want for each room. You can even find great renovation images through HGTV or renovation and interior design pricing through Improve Net. That way you can go over the time frames, your expectations, pricing, and the selections.

For example, if you want your bathroom to have slate stone for the walls and tiles with tile accents, you’ll need to decide on a color scheme and how you want the colors to carry into the rest of your home. Maybe you want the bedrooms to have Berber carpeting, but your husband wants dark hardwood flooring with plush area rugs. These are all points to consider.

I saw a new design show and they showed carpeting in the dining room and kitchen. Should I put carpeting in the kitchen?

If they showed carpeting in the kitchen and it was wall-to-wall carpeting, it was likely stain-resistant. Carpeting in kitchens, while trendy, isn’t recommended because kitchens are where all the food prep takes place and there’s a lot of water, spills, grease, and foot-traffic.

Linoleum Flooring

A few recommendations include vinyl, sealed wood, cork, stone, linoleum, porcelain, and ceramic. See a few HGTV examples here. That way you won’t have to worry about stains, spills or the carpeting acquiring mold or mildew.

Which flooring is best if you have allergies?

If you have allergies, avoid wool carpeting which could trigger them. A nylon carpet is better than a thick pile-carpet because nylon is made from man-made materials.

Best Flooring for Allergy Sufferers

Depending on the severity of your allergies, you may want to avoid certain vinyl, laminates, and engineered wood which can sometimes use an adhesive called volatile organic compound or VOC, according to Angie’s List. Hardwood flooring is better for allergy sufferers because the floors won’t collect dirt and dust.

Help! My boyfriend’s moving in and he has two retrievers and I have a cat. What’s the best flooring if you have pets?

With pets, when you call for a flooring sale and installation estimate, ask for stain-resistant carpeting options like polyester or nylon. You may also want to consider vinyl flooring that’s resistant to scratches, stains, and odors. And let’s hope the cat is ready for his/her new dog roommates!
