Replacement or Reuse of Existing Flooring
Throwing off the existing flooring can be a bad idea. Rather, the focus should be on how existing flooring can be repurposed creatively to save the renovation cost while making the best use of existing flooring. Most of your old flooring can be reused in aesthetic ways by just putting little effort into remodelling them.If your house has engineered or hardwood flooring, it can be easily transformed into impressive furniture like upcycling it into a table, cabinet doors or some decoratives like picture frames, coaster sets, or chopping boards.
Old flooring which is not too bad in its condition, can be reinstalled in less-used spaces like storerooms, balconies, or garages. Some wood flooring just needs refinishing to appear a lot better. Even if the old tile flooring is cracked or broken, they can still be re-used in outdoor pathways and landscaping. Some flooring like carpets cannot be recycled but can be repurposed in less used areas or be used as mats.
Luxury Vinyl – Some flooring like Luxury Vinyl can be laid over existing flooring like tiles and concrete. With this ability, luxury vinyl flooring is a smart choice, reducing all the mess and time in removing the existing flooring and then laying the new one. Luxury Vinyl floors have a warm and soft underfoot feeling and are easy to maintain and clean. Luxury vinyl is available in a wide range of colour and pattern options.
