Each year, about 75% of the U.S. population is faced with the dilemma of what to do with their tax refund check from the government. According to IRS data, refund checks average around $3,000. So, what is a person to do with a lump sum of that magnitude? Pay off debt? Travel? Buy Bitcoin? Shopping spree, maybe?
We suggest investing in one of your largest assets, your home. Consider taking your return and using it on home improvements like replacing old flooring, upgrading builder grade flooring, or finally remodel that master bath you’ve wanted to update.
Flooring Options for Investing Your Tax Return
There are many different flooring avenues you can take when deciding where to allocate your refund money. Most people have a room or two come to mind immediately when they dream of new floors but are unsure exactly the type and color of flooring they’d install. Here is a breakdown of the top products we recommend depending on your goals.
- Best Value for Your Money
If you are looking to stretch your tax refund dollars as far as possible, Shaw Coretec luxury vinyl tile is an excellent choice. This flooring combines quality and affordability. It gives a modern, wood grain look to a room and can be installed over any type of subfloor.
- Best for Families
For a busy home full of people or pets, it’s important to choose a flooring product that can withstand foot traffic, dirt, and water damage. We recommend LifeGuard carpet. The backing is waterproof, protecting subfloors from water damage caused by pet accidents or spills.
- Best for Home Gyms
If you’ve purchased gym equipment and created a home gym then you need a quality floor to complete the transformation. Rubber flooring is now making its way into homes and provides a stable and shock absorbent foundation for workout equipment.
