Don’t Skimp on FlooringFloors take a beating and cheap flooring shows wear and tear far sooner than a quality floor. Kitchen floors, for example, usually get the most foot traffic in the home and have food dropped and liquids spilled on them regularly. Bathroom floors need to be water and stain resistant and hold up to the chemicals we use to clean and disinfect. A laundry room floor must endure the intense shaking of a lopsided load in the washer. Lesser quality flooring in these rooms will need replacing in a matter of years because of staining, tearing, or water damage. Higher quality flooring is more durable and will save money and aggravation in the long run.
Splurge for Quality CabinetsThere is just no comparison between cheap kitchen cabinets and higher end kitchen cabinets in terms of looks and durability. Ever go into someone’s home and see those dated, uninteresting honey oak cabinets? They usually are scratched and worn around the edges, the drawers stick, and the cabinet doors slam shut. Do you want that in your new kitchen? Quality cabinets are a must for any kitchen remodel. They are well crafted, durable, resist stains, scratches, and fingerprints, open and close easily and quietly, and retain their style and beauty. In addition, homebuyers judge the quality of the kitchen over most everything else in a home, so spending a little more for quality cabinets will reap returns over time.
