4 Flooring Upgrades That'll Improve the Look of Your Home, Kahului, Hawaii

Homeowners looking to upgrade their decor and improve their home value with only one renovation should think about updating their flooring. From changing the material to performing maintenance, there are many ways to enhance the look and feel of your floors. Here are four options that may work for your house.

4 Simple Home Flooring Updates

1. Installing Hardwood

Many people with allergies, asthma, and other respiratory issues can benefit from making the switch from carpet to hardwood. This change improves the air quality of homes as carpet tends to hold on to dust, dander, and pollen while hardwood makes it easy to sweep these allergens away. Additionally, wood is durable, creates an illusion of more space, and can improve your home value.

2. Adding an Area Rug

Placing area rugs on the ground can protect hardwood flooring in high-traffic areas. Using rugs also prevents UV light damage, scratch marks, and general wear and tear from aging your floors. For the best protection, add rug backing to keep the covering in place or tape the corners with double-sided adhesive.

3. Decorating With Patterns 

flooringFlooring doesn’t have to be monotone or use natural hues. Many homeowners enjoy turning their floors into a focal point by adding patterns. Install tile in an intricate design, or choose a carpet or rug that will act as a comfortable, woven statement piece in your home.

4. Refinishing and Regrouting

If you’re satisfied with your current flooring design, consider sprucing it up and making it look new again. Have a professional sand, stain, and refinish your hardwood floors with polyurethane. Or, if your house is tiled, remove the grimy grout and install a new mix. This will restore the original look of the tile, removing mold and stains that cause discoloration. These small maintenance projects will not only protect your flooring, but they’ll also drastically change the look of your home.
