Selling or Updating Your Home? This Hottest Flooring Trend Will Be the Dealbreaker

I am currently putting in new flooring in my home. So many homeowners are gravitating towards the vinyl planking. It looks like wood, is waterproof, goes right over existing tile or wood and is great if you have pets. I’m watching the homes on my block that are for sale that have 12×12 tile in the kitchen and standard Gunstock engineered wood in the LR with some carpet and guess what? It’s not selling! The home across the street who put in GORGEOUS vinyl planks throughout – sold in a NY second. Everyone things that wood is the best but it’s not! Since most homeowners have dogs, it scratches and is a BIG problem if fido has an accident. Vinyl plank flooring – the flooring to have in the home and I can’t wait to get mine next week!
