Buying Wood Flooring on a Budget

Buying Wood Flooring on a Budget


Posted 24th MayYH PROMOTION

It’s easy to see why solid and engineered wood flooring has become so popular. Whether installed in a residential or contract property, hardwood boards offer unrivalled durability, strength, and style, perfect for almost any interior scenario.

But if you’ve already considered buying wood flooring for yourself, you’ll know that species such as oak, walnut, and acacia often come with a steep price-tag. Whilst this is to be expected with such a high-quality product, it can prevent homeowners from buying the flooring of their dreams.

If you’re renovating on a tight budget, you’ll be thrilled to realise that there are ways of getting wood flooring at a fraction of the cost. Here’s how:

Reclaimed Wood

If you’re looking for all the charm and character of new wood flooring at a fraction of the cost, reclaimed wood is the place to start. Many homeowners are sourcing their hardwood boards from old homes, construction sites, and dedicated online stores, saving a tonne on their renovation projects.

Unfortunately, some people still believe that reclaimed wood is as expensive as buying brand new. Whilst it is true that some specialist stores have been taking advantage of the reclaimed trend by inflating costs, it is possible to find cheap reclaimed wood if you take the time to shop around. Leave no stone unturned, and you could save a fortune.

DIY Installation

It’s no secret that a large portion of flooring installation costs come from professional fitting. If you hire a specialist to complete the job, it’s only natural that the price of labour is going to put a huge dent in your budget. But the truth is, DIY installation can be easier than you think.

With only a handful of tools, a bit of patience, and some initial research, you’ll be more than equipped to get to work on your flooring. Additionally, wood flooring manufacturers have been making DIY easier with new and improved features. Designs such as the Click fitting system remove a lot of the hassle associated with traditional fitting methods, saving you time, effort, and most importantly, money.
