You're going to LOVE your home! PROJECT #6: Floors

Your floors probably take some of the most abuse of any part of your house.... maybe they should have been earlier in the list... hmmm...

Project # 6. Swap out your carpet.

by +Sarah Marrinan - Keller Williams Premier Realty 

You might LOVE your carpet but many Americans are living with carpet they really, really dislike, whether because of its color, its condition or the upkeep and maintenance it requires.

If you can’t stand your carpet, you can estimate that it’ll run you about $300-$500 per room* to replace it with new carpet,

Maybe you are done with carpet all together.  For $1500-$2000 per room* you could replace it with hardwood.

While real wood floors could really set you back, laminate versions come in a variety of price points starting as low as $.99/sq foot (plus installation)*.  Tile could be another great answer.  Or maybe you want the tile look without the "cold" and you pick a vinyl that has the tile look.

No matter what you choose, it's time to ditch the worn (and probably dirty) carpet.

*Pricing varies depending on where you live, how large your rooms are and what specific materials you choose in terms of the replacement floors
