Are you selling your home and it needs new floor covering?

What flooring products will give me the best re-sale value for my home?

With the housing market on the rebound I am getting a lot of questions about which flooring gives the best resale value when people are fixing their home to put it on the market.


When deciding which flooring is right for your home so that you get your best value for your money, let’s look at some options. When deciding which floor will impact buyers the most we need to spend our money wisely.

  • Style of your home?
  • What fits with your decor?
  • Who will be looking at your home?
  • What is your budget?

All of these will play a factor on the right flooring. I have a pretty good pulse on what is happening in the housing market since I work with Realtor’s, Home Builders, Remodelor’s, Restoration Companies, etc. and with the clients of these Members, I probably sell more Hardwood than any other product in our store, Tile would be second and Carpet third. As I have said in past posts, I am a carpet fan when and if you choose a quality carpet. If you spend as much on carpet as you do hardwood you can get an awesome product. Knowing how to care for Carpet is critical to having a good experience.

That being said, Hardwood is a great choice for your Den or Living Room area but we need to look at a couple of options there. Do we want a casual feel or a more formal feel? Here are a couple of options for either:

For a more formal look I like a 5″ Cherry with a smooth face.

Hand-scraped Hardwood can give a little more casual look. I have found furniture will also have some impact on a casual feel to hand-scarped Hardwood as well. In the hand- scraped series of Hardwood there are some that have what I call more chatter and look more Rustic. Below is what I would call a soft scrape and can be dressed up or down depending on the furniture.

Mannington's  Mayan Pecan is one of my favorites for a rustic look.

If you have existing carpet and it looks dirty or has odors you definitely want to get that replaced as well. In bedrooms  most people seem to prefer carpet still, it’s warmer and quieter. There is no need to go over board on quality because most consumers wouldn’t know the value of one carpet over another. When I show carpet to people in the Fifty Plus group, I generally show a Cut & Loop Pattern or a Plush carpet and for younger families I show a Frieze or Textured Plush. When selecting carpet it important not to go too dark, lighter colors help your rooms look larger, brighter and more inviting.

A dressier more formal look is a Pattern.

A Pattern Carpet will help dress up any bedroom.

Frieze carpet is a little more kid friendly and easier to keep for young families that are always on the go. With the mixture or texture and colors it has great hiding qualities. It helps hide some of everyday life’s crumbs and fibers that we drop along the way.

Frieze - The Kid Friendly Carpet Choice.

The Twist of a Frieze gives it great hiding ability of everyday dirt and soil.  Let's face it, camouflage is the best friend of a young family.

Picking the Right Carpet Color


If your customers have come to you asking about installing new discount carpeting in their homes, you’ve probably had to help figure out which color works best for each given situation. Unfortunately, this can be a difficult decision to make, especially if the homeowners in question aren’t sure what they’re looking for. However, if you have a good idea of what colors work well together, you’ll make everything easier on everyone. Here are some tips to help ensure the process goes smoothly.

Start by finding out what the dominant color scheme in the home is. You might be surprised at the number of options available once you find out! From here, consulting a color wheel is the easiest way to determine what hues will work. Look for colors that are either opposite each other or adjacent on the wheel – these will typically work well together.

Thinking Long Term in Flooring

Depending on your lifestyle, carpet colors in your home can make a big difference in the long run. For example, if you know that you might be tracking in mud from time to time, you’ll want to stay away from light colored carpets. Furthermore, you’ll want to be sure that you pick a style of carpet that is easy to clean to ensure that get the most life out of your carpet. Nylons and Polyester carpets are now treated with stain resisters, so just check the details on the back of each carpet sample to get more information.

From a Design Perspective for Carpet

In addition to being functional, choosing the right carpeting can be very important when it comes to your home’s design. Fortunately, choosing the right color of carpet isn’t rocket science, but picking a carpet type can be more difficult. Before deciding, be sure to research all of the different carpet types and textures with your ProSource Account Manager.

When it’s time for new carpet, ProSource Wholesale Flooring  can help you save on brand name carpets with a wide selection of patterns and colors.
