If you are considering a new flooring option for your home, there is plenty of planning to do before the renovation begins. Please consider the following so you know what to do in advance to ensure your flooring installation goes as smoothly as possible.
SET YOUR BUDGET
It may be blatantly obvious, but many customers fail to set their budget before they begin planning their project. If you are thinking about installing new flooring, it is important you know exactly how much you will be able to spend, because that will inform what type of flooring option you choose. If you know your budget in advance, we can better help you make choices in determining the scope and style of your project.
RIGHT FLOOR FOR YOUR BUDGET
Most of your flooring project’s budget will rest on the type of flooring you select, so product choice is definitely a major piece of the planning stage. Consider the space that you will need to cover, as well as what flooring option will work for your home.
In recent years, many affordable products have been developed that mimic some of the more expensive flooring options, which should help you work within your budget.
SET A PLAN AND STICK TO IT
Once you have determined your budget and flooring option, you can finalize your plan with an installation professional. Making changes in the middle of a renovation always causes added costs and headaches, so planning in advance will pay dividends as you pursue the flooring of your dreams!
PREPARE FOR THE UNEXPECTED
Last but not least, be prepared for the unexpected. Typically, you should budget an extra ten percent for wastage. Also, there is always a possibility when you pull up your old flooring you may find issues with the subflooring which you were unaware of beforehand. Even with the best-laid plans the unexpected can occur, so plan in advance for potential roadblocks.
We are committed to not only providing our customers in the Cape Town area with the finest flooring from the top brands but also the resources and know-how to make sure the installation goes smoothly. Our hope is you and your family enjoy your new flooring for years to come!
