When a house or commercial property looks generic, it is due to the lack of details, and adding a few pillows or wallpaper do not necessarily make your home look like it is a luxury residence. Defining a luxury space can be especially important if you choose a minimalist look. Instead of adding more marble in the kitchen or bathroom and installing designer lighting fixtures, give your floors a chance to add real estate value to your home or commercial property with custom flooring.
The difference between custom and generic flooring
By and large, when you look at a floor and it is the same from one wall to another, this is a generic look. Alternatively, with custom flooring, there are several distinct characteristics that make it look artistic and expensive. For example, custom floors are often bordered in another color or material. Custom floors also may have inlay or tiling that creates a pattern, picture or intricate design. In other words, the materials for custom or generic flooring may be the same, but the way that they are installed and manipulated turns them from generic to exotic.
What to expect from a custom flooring installation
When you call up a carpet installer for an ordinary service appointment, they will ask you where you purchased your carpet so they can pick it up. Otherwise, there may be few conversations between the property owner and the flooring installer. With custom flooring, there will be many conversations before the flooring is purchased, and there may be many more after the materials are selected. After all, when you want an upgrade to your real estate that will define it as a luxury building, there are no one-size-fits-all options. In fact, depending on the project, a part of your custom flooring team might include an interior designer or architect.
Custom flooring for industrial and commercial properties
While custom flooring in homes is usually focused on decorative purposes, practical solutions for flooring are also available for industrial and commercial properties looking to upgrade the building for a real estate sale. For instance, it is common to outfit a property with custom flooring when it is being renovated for restaurants. In addition to adding fire or heat-resistant custom flooring, installing anti-skid panels helps save money on worker’s compensation claims. Other custom solutions for flooring in industrial buildings includes working with scaffolding to create offices, presentation spaces or more effective worksite areas.
How to get the most from your custom flooring real estate upgrade
When you want to make the best decisions for selling your property, it is important to have as much advice as possible. This is especially true for large-scale commercial or retail custom flooring projects that involve a lobby or entryway. For this reason, do not be afraid to add extra members to your real estate sale team including custom flooring professionals as well as interior or architectural design specialists.
