Wood floor restoration – a matter of taste
You are selling your home – and your wooden floors need refurbishment. To attract speedy buyers, it may be worth investing in floor sanding and sealing.
When selecting a new colour, minimise any off-putting factor by avoiding anything too quirky or individual. Choose a safe, neutral finish that will appeal to a broad range of tastes – such as light brown.
Even if the colour of the wood floor isn’t exactly to their liking, your buyers will find it relatively easy and cheap to change it – with coloured polish to start with. Later, they may wish to sand the floor and apply another colour. This is far simpler compared to ripping out carpet and renovating a wooden floor, let alone buying and installing a new one.
The same applies if you are renting out your property. Potential tenants will perceive the wooden floors as a luxurious feature â€“ and be willing to pay more rent.
