Reflooring your home with porcelain tile in Miami comes with many advantages. It can improve your house’s appearance, make your floor more resistant to spills, and even make cleaning easier. When done right, it also increases your home’s value!
This begs the question: why does porcelain tile flooring increase the value of your home? Let’s discuss everything you should consider when reflooring with an eye toward selling.
Why Porcelain Reflooring Adds to the Value of Your Home
The flooring material(s) in your home matter because most buyers don’t want to have to floor a room themselves. There are three major advantages the right flooring offers a buyer:
- They don’t have to factor the cost of reflooring into their negotiations with you.
- They don’t have to worry about the time and energy they’ll need to spend finding the right flooring material.
- They don’t have to worry about the time and energy they’ll need to spend finding the right contractor.
Sellers who choose to floor their home with a stylish, high-quality material therefore put themselves in a better negotiating position. The convenience such a home offers means they can charge more than what it costs to refloor.
Why Do Buyers Like Porcelain Flooring?
There are several reasons why porcelain floors often add value to a home:
- Stain Resistance
- Wide Range of Potential Styles
Along with these advantages, hard floors are almost always more valuable than carpet.
While hardwood floor is also popular when increasing the value of a home, it can be harder to maintain. This is why we often recommend porcelain tiles to customers.
Which Rooms Should You Refloor?
Now that we’ve established the fact that porcelain tile can add to the value of your home, it’s worth considering the best places to install it to get the most value for your money.
Generally speaking, rooms that leave a strong impression are the ones where you want to focus most of your reflooring efforts.
You also have to consider the material. Bathrooms and kitchens are popular choices for porcelain reflooring specifically. Both rooms benefit from the fact that porcelain is non-porous.
How Many Types of Flooring Materials Should You Choose?
Of course, you also want to be careful because you don’t want a patchwork of different flooring all throughout the house.
Often, we recommend having no more than three different types of materials on a single level of a home. Which rooms it’s best to refloor will therefore depend on how many types of flooring the home currently has.
If you’re concerned that adding another flooring type in your home would make it look too chaotic, you may want to consider using porcelain outdoors. This is often a stunning look, and porcelain’s durability and non-porousness makes it great for pools, just like it’s great for kitchens and bathrooms.
