It’s tax season and if you’re planning on getting a tax refund this year, putting the money towards new floors in your home could be a great way to use the extra cash to increase the value of your home. Here’s the 2018 list of top investments Flowers Flooring recommends for people to make on their floors.
Hardwood floors are timeless and hold their value when compared to many other flooring options. Hardwood floors are also appealing to buyers, which can help when you decide to sell your home. The best place to install hardwood flooring is in main living spaces such as the living rooms, dining rooms and entry ways. Flowers Flooring recommends not installing hardwood in wet areas such as bathrooms, laundry rooms and kitchens. Harwood flooring is a tried and true flooring investment and a wise way to spend your tax refund.
LifeGuard Water Proof Carpet

More homeowners are also selecting LifeGuard carpet that is worry free, water proof carpet that prevents moisture and odor-causing spills from seeping into the carpet, carpet cushion and subfloor.

Luxury Vinyl Plank
Vinyl plank flooring, also known as resilient vinyl is one of the hottest selling floors in the industry. Flooring experts don’t see this trend slowing any time soon. Planks with believable color, grain and texture make it hard to tell it’s not hardwood or wood plank tile. Vinyl plank flooring is a great investment in your home as its water resistant, looks great and feels amazing under foot.
Before using your tax refund dollars to invest in flooring be sure to consider your lifestyle before selecting a flooring type. Maintaining your floors and keeping them in good shape is critical to retaining value. If you have pets or young children soft hardwoods or light colored carpet may not be the best choice.
Make Sure Your Tax Refund Dollars are Not Wasted
Opt for a professional installation. If you are spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on flooring materials Flowers Flooring always recommends spending a little extra to ensure a professional installation. A professional installation should give you piece of mind that the job is being done right.
