Rental properties: which is the best flooring option?

Carpet Barn offers a large selection of different flooring solutions for rental properties that don't have to break the bank! From carpets, laminate flooring, and vinyl flooring your property can look luxurious yet practical, regardless of your budget. 

For the majority of rental properties, it’s essential to keep the style and design throughout the house or flat, stylishly furnished with neutral colour palettes in all rooms. It can be easy for landlords to style the property how they would style their own home, but this approach is risky as everyone has their own subjective tastes.

By keeping the decor simple this will match the style of most potential tenants, and allow easy envisioning of how they can use and change the space to suit their needs.

Carpet flooring

Carpet flooring is a popular choice for rental properties as they are easy to clean, and cost-effective by providing insulation of warmth during the cold winter months. Carpet flooring also absorbs sound waves of noise created by tenants and technology, options of integrated padding for carpets extend the noise absorption benefits even further. Not only available in hundreds of colours, cuts and patterns they are a safe option to install in rental properties as they prevent slip and fall accidents that could occur on hard flooring.

Laminate flooring

Laminate flooring is a cheaper alternative to wooden flooring but with the exact same appearance benefits. A practical option for rental properties as the material is burn, fade, stains and scratch resistant which will last longer in your rental property. This is due to the melamine plastic wear layer manufacturers use for the top surface of the laminate flooring. It’s also quick to clean by only requiring a hoover or dust when needed, without the hassle of any wax or polish like its wood flooring competitors.

Vinyl flooring

Vinyl flooring is extremely durable against heavy foot traffic, perfect for preventing the risk of damages from energetic tenants. The material is comfortable underfoot and one of its many benefits is it reduces noise inside of the property where it is installed. Ideal for landlords to take advantage of so they won't receive any noise complaints that could have been avoided with vinyl flooring. The flooring is a softer surface when compared to its competitors of tile or wood, and is very easy to maintain with only an occasional sweep or mop of the stained surface to keep it looking brand new.
