How Much Should You Spend On Flooring

How much you spend on flooring is all determined by your budget and what type of flooring you want to install. On the low end, $400 may be all you need. On the high end, people are known to spend as much as $8000. On average, home flooring installation costs around $2900.

What you spend will be highly determined by what you install. Here are some of your options:

Wood Flooring

There are two primary types of wood flooring available. The first is the solid wood floor. The other style of wood flooring is the “engineered wood floor.” Engineered wood floors are gaining in popularity because they generally cost less than the solid wood floor.Engineered wood flooring may not last you as long as real wood, so it’s always good to keep this in mind.

Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring is typically cheaper than other options. Real wood, stone and tile are not only usually more expensive materials but are almost always considerably more expensive to install. So if you want the look and feel of wood, stone or tile but cannot afford it, laminate is the way to go. Not only cheaper, laminate floor is also the most durable.

Vinyl and Linoleum Flooring

If you’re on a tight budget, vinyl and linoleum are ideal. Like laminate, they can imitate wood, stone or tile, and when purchased in squares, can be easy enough to install that you might not need a contractor. These options will also save you a ton of money in labor costs.

Carpeting

To determine a price, you’ll need to consider room size, pile of carpet and labor. The pile of the carpet refers to the thickness or density of fibers used to weave the carpet. Natural products usually cost more than synthetics because natural fibers can’t be mass-produced as easily. Carpet in any room is always a cozy option.
