I recently received a question about tearing vinyl flooring out of a home to increase its value. Yes, the more upgrades you do to a home, the better the home’s value becomes. This said, many of my senior clients still have vinyl in their family homes and want to read about inexpensive ways to upgrade the style without committing to replacing all the floors. Well, after some research, I do have affordable solutions.
Paint! Yes, paint. Paint is a cheaper way to upgrade a home’s vinyl flooring without investing a lot. You will get more for your home with paint, but not as much as if you tore out and redid the home’s entire flooring. If you do want to pain vinyl, here’s how; http://www.viewalongtheway.com/2013/01/how-to-paint-vinyl-or-laminate-flooring/ I also found a great resource here: http://www.theflooringlady.com/removing_vinyl_flooring_000805.html
Now, you may think that painting vinyl flooring can’t look that good. Well, not so. I pulled some of my favorite examples off of the internet and have pasted them below.
