If you’re shopping for floors on a tight budget, you are probably looking for the best value you can find. Our Floor Coverings International Northshore experts can help you find the right flooring to suit your needs while also staying within budget. Here are some options to consider for your Burnaby home or property:
1. Low-Pile Synthetic Carpets
When you simply need a carpet that’s going to get you through a few years, some economic low-pile carpeting is the way to go. Synthetic materials like polypropylene, polyester, and nylon can start at 59 cents per square foot, especially when the carpet is a basic low-pile style. This simple flooring will get you through the next season in life without straining your finances.
2. Vinyl Flooring
This basic floor offers some surprising returns for its low price. Starting around 50 cents per square foot, it’s relatively easy to install and extremely resilient to wear and tear. Vinyl comes in sheets, planks, and tiles that can mimic some natural materials like wood and stone, giving you a variety of looks for a fraction of the cost of authentic materials. Vinyl is also waterproof, so it can be installed in bathrooms and basements.
3. Ceramic Tile
This classic flooring is priced as low as $2 per square foot, rendering it an affordable option for wet areas like bathrooms and basements. It’s often hard to find an economic floor that does well against moisture, but ceramic tiles handle the job well. They also look spectacular and allow creative designs when you arrange different colored tiles into a mosaic.
4. Laminate Flooring
Laminate floors come as interlocking planks or tiles and can be as cheap as $1 per square foot. When you also figure in the quick labor (the floors don’t need to be glued down), you have a budget-friendly floor that can look like wood and other organic materials but without the hefty cost.
