When it comes to buying things for your home, new homeowners can often afford to skimp here and there on a few things. You might decide to settle on furniture that isn’t quite what you were looking for, because you can always replace it. That mindset works fine for some items, but don’t be fooled into believing you can do that with new floors.
Why It’s Important
Flooring isn’t just something you “make the most of” until something better comes along. Not only is it a big investment, it’s also something that gets used every single day. It’s not a conscious choice you make, it is the very nature of the product. Additionally, it receives more wear and tear than any other surface in your home and has to be able to stand up to that.
Sure, you can decide to go with a bargain choice at first, but are you prepared for everything in your household to come to a stop when the new floors are being installed? Some materials are much easier and quicker to install, but others can be excessively time consuming and very much worth the time. Hardwood, for example, or porcelain tile, are good examples of flooring that takes a while to install.
No Room for Regrets
When you go ahead and take the time, right from the start, for a good quality floor covering, you’re not going to have an ounce of regret. Hardwood flooring can easily last 100 years if properly cared for, and tile doesn’t come in far behind that in life span. In fact, splurging for the best right from the start could mean that you won’t have to worry about flooring replacement for years to come. Now that’s a peace of mind that seems worth it, don’t you think?
