installing new floors on a budget

Have you been putting off installing new flooring because you don’t feel you have the time, energy, or money to do it?  Home improvement projects are an investment of time and money. However, there are some smart ways to save some money when it comes to installing new flooring!

Resist the Urge to Do It Yourself

Many homeowners try to save some money by taking on projects themselves rather than hiring a professional.  While this makes sense with many projects like installing a new door, painting the walls, or refinishing a table, it becomes a much greater undertaking with something like flooring installation. Consider the time you’ll invest doing it yourself. The peace of mind that comes with a professional company is worth it.

Prioritize the Projects

Is your kitchen floor scratched and worn?  Is the carpet in the bedroom threadbare and faded?  Is your bathroom covered in old, outdated tile?  There is usually one room that needs your help more than the others.  If you’re on a budget, you don’t have to take on a comprehensive home makeover. Instead, tackle each room as it becomes financially feasible for you.  This will allow you to invest in the flooring you need and make some progress on that Home Improvement To-Do List.

Flooring Materials

There are so many flooring materials on the market today.  You may be surprised how affordable new floors can be.  If you desire the look of hardwood, for example, but don’t feel you can manage the price, you can install laminate, or engineered hardwood flooring.  If you want tile in your kitchen, but cannot afford tile or stone, you can consider Alterna luxury vinyl tiles.  These alternative flooring materials provide the appearance of wood or stone for a fraction of the cost!

The best way to understand all of the options available to you is to schedule a free, in-home consultation.  We will bring flooring samples to your home so you can visualize all of the flooring possibilities out there.  Give Floor Coverings International of Calgary a call today and let us help you achieve your new flooring goals!
