How to shop for hardwood floors on a budget

Published: March 21, 2017

Hardwood floors are an excellent choice for many homeowners. Hardwood never goes out of style – in fact, it often increases in value with age if taken care of properly. They look beautiful and stand the test of time but hardwood floors are also an expensive floor choice. Can you shop for hardwood floors and stick to your budget? Yes! And Kermans Flooring has a few tips to help you do just that.

Hardwood floor is a beautiful choice for this kitchen.

Today’s wood floors are easy to maintain, more durable than ever before, and still add that special look of warmth and beauty to any home. These are all big benefits for any homeowner but there’s no denying that solid hardwood floors are a big investment. How do you make sure you’re getting the biggest bang for your buck?

Go standard.

Yes, that 12 inch plank Brazilian cherry floor is gorgeous but it’s also expensive. If you’re looking to buy hardwood floor on a budget, stick with standard widths and wood options. You’ll save money going with a floor that is already in stock versus one that has to be special ordered.

Look at the long term. 

All floors have an age. Within 10 years that perfect carpet is going to have wear patterns, stains and matted fibers that require replacing. Hardwood, however, lasts for decades. When you spread out the cost of the hardwood floor over the years that you’ll enjoy it, it is often one of the most cost-effective floors on the market.

Let us help you stick to your flooring budget.

There’s a lot more to shopping for a hardwood floor than the price per square foot. Kermans Flooring uses a consultative sales process. We don’t just point you in the direction of hardwood floor samples. We sit down with you to learn more about your lifestyle and budget. Then we can talk to you about the most cost-effective way to get the hardwood floor you love.
