The Best Flooring for Rental Properties

You have many options when looking for the best flooring for your rental property. Each type of flooring has its benefits and drawbacks, so it’s important to compare before choosing your new floor.

You’ll want to consider a few things before starting your flooring project, such as cost, appearance, and product durability. We’ll look at some of the most popular types of flooring and discuss which ones are best suited for rentals.

Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood floors come in a wide variety of options, including:

Apart from their aesthetic appeal, hardwood floors come with many benefits, including:

  • Relatively quick and easy to install compared to other types of flooring
  • Highly durable
  • Help raise your property’s overall value
  • Can be installed either pre-finished or unfinished
  • And more!

If you’re looking to have hardwood flooring installed as quickly as possible without the smell of toxic fumes or needing to relocate, consider choosing pre-finished hardwood flooring. For a unique customization, an unfinished wood floor is an excellent option.

You can also choose the kind of finish you’d like for your hardwood flooring. Their durability, water resistance, and low maintenance needs make surface finishes a popular add-on for hardwood floors.

Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring

Another popular flooring choice for property rentals is luxury vinyl plank flooring (LVP). While this type of flooring tends to be more expensive than traditional vinyl, they’re still a fraction of the cost compared to hardwood and stone flooring.

The perfect blend of style and utility, LVP is much more durable, allowing it to maintain its luxurious appearance for longer. LVP closely mimics the appearance of hardwood and stone, making it an excellent way to achieve your desired aesthetic without breaking the bank.

Other benefits of LVP for your rental property include:

  • Water resistance
  • Weather resistance
  • Easy installation
  • Low maintenance

Luxury Vinyl Tile Flooring

A whole new kind of vinyl flooring, COREtec proves to be revolutionary. COREtec flooring is among the most durable flooring materials on the market. They’re waterproof, pet-proof, and kid-proof yet stylish and inviting.

There is a wide range of styles and realistic appearances to choose from, including stone, marble, slate, concrete, or travertine, giving you the luxurious look you crave and durability you need at a price you’ll love.

The durability of COREtec lies in its manufacturing process. Wood dust, limestone, and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) give COREtec its ultimate defense against water and make it resistant to mold and mildew. It also has multiple coated layers for extra strength and durability.

Carpet Flooring

With hardwood and vinyl flooring taking center stage, carpet flooring tends to be an undervalued flooring choice. When you think of carpeting, your first thought might be the inconvenience of having to vacuum constantly. The truth is carpet flooring offers many benefits for your rental property.

While hardwood and vinyl floors have a lovely aesthetic, carpet flooring is in a league of its own. Several styles can give a feel of luxury or casual comfort. Carpet flooring also tends to absorb sound better than hardwood, laminate, or vinyl, resulting in a quieter space at a budget-friendly cost.

Laminate Flooring

For the most bang for your buck, laminate flooring offers one of the most inexpensive solutions to durable and stylish flooring. Available in naturally occurring wood patterns, modern laminate flooring can easily fool most onlookers. It’s also scratch-resistant and durable against denting, making it perfect for pets.

When it comes to cleaning, laminate floors are a breeze. All it takes is a vacuum or a slightly damp mop to get the job done. There’s no need to scrub hard or buff to keep your floors neat, clean, and looking pristine — perfect for families with small children.
