Improving your home often starts with flooring. After all, you touch your floors more than any other surface in your home. But replacing a floor, whether in a single room or across an entire floor, can be an expensive proposition, and it’s not the type of job most homeowners are up for tackling.

Refreshing your floors does not have to be expensive.


But did you know that there are plenty of flooring alternatives for Grand Rapids homeowners who want an updated, luxury experience without breaking their budget?

1. Hardwood Restoration

Too many high quality, vintage wood floors have been discarded needlessly, when they can be completely restored and given new life. Refinishing is far cheaper than replacing your flooring, and you can even update your home’s look with a brand new stain color, if you prefer.

2. Sheet Vinyl Flooring

The most affordable flooring option of all, which also installs cheaply and easily, is sheet vinyl flooring. Homeowners have a wide range of style options to choose from, including both stone and wood look selections, and the material is extremely water and wear resistant. For the price, it’s hard to beat.

3. Vinyl Plank or Tile Flooring

At a marginally higher price point, Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring takes all the advantages of sheet vinyl flooring and adds nuance and texture for an improved visual impact that homeowners will love. Find options in imitation hardwood, tile, and even concrete, and enjoy easy peel-and-stick installation.

4. Laminate Flooring

Laminate is another of the least expensive, easiest to install, and most popular options for residential flooring, and you can get it a number of styles—most notably imitation hardwood planks. Despite being soft and pleasant to walk on, laminate is also tough, which makes it a great option for those with hard-playing children and pets.

5. Cork Flooring

What if you want real wood, but just don’t have the budget for it? Cork floors aren’t as tough as the other options on this list, but they are a warm, insulating, water resistant, and sustainable natural option that comes in at a much friendlier price point than traditional hardwoods.
