Five Savvy Tips for Saving Money on Flooring

There is a cost-of-living crisis and we are all feeling the pinch. But while everyone is making tough financial decisions, you don’t have to feel resigned to ratty old carpets or scratched wooden floors.

Whether you’re renovating, building a new house, or have had one too many spills, sometimes flooring takes top priority. Here’s five tips from our flooring specialists in Tauranga, Palmerston North, and Nelson to help you lay new flooring without breaking the bank.

  1. Choose the right material

One of the easiest ways to save money on flooring is to choose an affordable material. Vinyl, laminate, and engineered hardwood are all budget-friendly options that look and feel great, but don’t come with the hefty price tags of solid hardwood floors. For expert help choosing flooring that fits your brief and budget, our flooring specialists are happy to discuss your options.

  1. Room by room flooring

Flooring isn’t an all or nothing activity. If you want to replace the flooring across your entire house, but it’s too costly right now, start small. Can you cope with faded carpet in the bedrooms while you lay beautiful new floors in the kitchen and lounge? Prioritise the rooms that need it the most and leave the other rooms for later.

  1. Wait for deals

Just like clothing or electronics, flooring goes on sale now and then. For example, at The Flooring Room we are known to have special discounts, seasonal sales, and offer interest free payment options from time to time. Line up your flooring project with one of our deals and you’ll find the project far more affordable.

  1. Opt for quality and ask about warranties

Flooring is an investment. While cheap options are on the market, you’ll likely find yourself spending more money to repair and replace them more frequently. Instead, opt for good quality flooring – it will be a one-off payment that lasts for years to come. And when you work with The Flooring Room, you get a lifetime warranty on the installation of your floors.

  1. Take care of your floors

Caring for your new floors will give them the longest possible life. Regular cleaning, feet protectors on furniture, and strategic use of curtains to reduce fading are all great ways to keep your flooring looking its best. Some of our flooring products have specific care requirements around upkeep, spills, and pets which we can explain to you when you select your flooring.

With these savvy tips, you can end up with beautiful new floors that don’t cost an arm and a leg. For your next flooring project in Tauranga, Palmerston North, or Nelson, speak to the team at The Flooring Room today.
