How do you pick the right floor for a house or a flat that you’ll rent out? What considerations should you take into account, and what are the do’s and don’ts? We’ve weighed out all the options for you.
A resilient floor
Any floor in a rental has to be first and foremost robust. That way you can be sure it will endure moving days and housewarming parties. Make sure to choose a floor that’s scratch resistant and that will last you a long time. Preferably one that’s easy to maintain, too. A durable floor, that’s not too expensive.
A timeless look
Even if you simply adore floors with a renovated reclaimed or weathered look, this might not suit a rental. Not everyone’s a fan, and it doesn’t go with every interior. A floor that contrasts with their furniture can dissuade tenants. Therefore, it’s better to pick a type of floor that is an all-time favourite, like oak wood for example.
