A couple of options which come to mind when thinking about an affordable flooring material for your house are carpet and laminate. Below are a few of the positives and negatives of each.
- Carpeting: This is certainly the most affordable flooring offered at around $1 a square foot ($10/square yard). Having said that, putting down carpet is not a very DIY friendly job, so you’ll most likely have to integrate the price of installation into the picture. Carpet can be purchased in a variety of textures and colors.
- Laminate: This imitation wood flooring is a DIY-friendly choice for flooring that cost around $2 per square foot. You should definitely add into that the cost for any essential accessories like threshold strips and quarter round. Laminate is a suspended flooring with all the sections locking with each other without having to use nails or glues. This really makes laminate simple to install and easy to take out as needed.
