For those thinking about selling their home, redoing the inside from the floor up is often a clever investment.
“If a homeowner wants to sell and needs to upgrade their interior, we generally recommend they start from the floor up. Why? Typically, the floor is the canvas or backdrop for every room in the house. If you change the floor, the whole room often undergoes a major transformation,” said Dean Dupre, who runs Champion Tile, a Clearwater Flooring, Tampa Flooring, and tile installation company.
Oddly, even when it comes to interior design these days, most consultants tend to overlook the value of the floor. In fact, often the floor is one of the most ignored features of a home. “If you stop to think about that, it won’t make much sense, particularly when you consider that if your living room features old, beaten up wood planking that hasn’t looked great in a long time, and you merely change the wallpaper, pictures and furniture, you still have the beaten down flooring. If you’re going to invest in your home, invest in the floors and choose something like Tampa marble,” Dupre said.
As underrated as they may be, the floors in a home play an enormous role in every family’s life. Every event in their lives happens on those floors, from the time they move into the house until the time they leave it. The floor is a direct reflection of the whole room built on it. If the floors have style and class, the rest of the room will reflect that back. It does not take much to make an enormous difference in a home by just changing the flooring. If the floors are changed to marble, the effect is instant, breathtaking beauty. Think the Frog Prince when it comes to the transformation.
“While many homeowners may be thinking that upgrading their Tampa flooring is pricey, it doesn’t have to be. Even with marble as the stone of choice, they can definitely afford to invest in something that will suit their budgets. We have customers call us all the time asking about marble flooring,” Dupre said.
Homeowners may not know where to start to get the information they need to make an informed decision about making a move to marble flooring. Start first by getting samples from a contractor and laying them on the existing flooring. This will provide a bird’s eye view of what a new floor could look like. Marble is a good choice for more than just its inherent beauty. It is durable, smooth, elegant, classy and easy to keep clean, not to mention the fact that it really increases the value of a home when it comes to selling it.
