Hi all, I need flooring replaced in 2 master bedrooms as soon as my TrustedPros painting project is decided. But before we even start looking for installers, my question is somewhat vague but simple:
We are a young couple on a budget and don't have a lot of money to drop into expensive hardwood floors. For master bedrooms should we be looking at carpet or laminate considering the house is going up for sale immediately ?
Is there a big price difference between the two? How much?
And is it worth choosing one over the other in your opinion? Maybe in 2018 cheap laminates have come a long way?
Thank you for your time, pros!
I think laminate is better option than carpet as it will add more value to your house. No doubt carpet is cheaper option, but you can recover laminate cost in selling price of your house. Carpet material and installation will cost you around 2-3 $ per sq ft where as laminate flooring material and installation
will cost you 4-5$ per sq ft
I recommend to choose laminate flooring.cost of both them is 3-3,5 $ included Materials,but laminate most common now.Lot of peaple replacing carpet with laminate in my experience.
Good laminate floors looks great then carpet
I recommend going with 12mm laminate. More and more people are moving away from carpeting as it harbours allergens. Nowadays you can get some really nice laminate flooring.
Laminate is better for resale of house as well and money you invest in it will be recovered in the sale of your house.
