Lots More to a Floor than Meets the Eye

As one of the two most important rooms in your home when it comes to adding value, the bathroom is a great place to remodel. This space, along with the kitchen, is a room that potential buyers often look at very closely when deciding whether they’re going to close on a home. Therefore, if you are thinking about remodeling your bathroom, there are a few things that you will want to consider. Financial Web has put together a great list of tips to help you remodel your bathroom and add value.
One particularly interesting tip we found:
The flooring that you put in your bathroom can do a lot as far as adding value to your home. Flooring can give your bathroom an elegant look or it can make it look bad. Put some thought into what you want your floor to look like. In a bathroom, you now have several options for the floor. With the emergence of many vinyl products, you can achieve a realistic look without the cost. However, if you want to add value to the house, your best bet is still tile. Using ceramic, porcelain, or another natural stone tile is the best way to go for the bathroom.

Vinyl, laminate, or carpet does not add any value to your house as they are considered floor covering. They are not permanently attached. With tile, you are permanently attaching it to the subfloor and therefore it is considered flooring. You can do the same thing with hardwood, but hardwood in a bathroom is not ideal. With as much water as you will get on the floor, you will usually run into problems. With tile, you can do a pattern or alternate colors. It can create a look for your bath that no other type of floor can.
