DWQA QuestionsSo we\’re doing a remodel on a house and it

So we’re doing a remodel on a house and it has these light oak floors. Most walls are grey, white trim, and kitchen has white cabinets (ya know, the usual these days..) Would you sand these down and redo them or say flooring over them? Also, I’m asking from a value/selling standpoint, not exactly a personal preference standpoint if that makes sense 😅

Everyone loves real hardwoods and if your floors are in great to good shape I’d have them do professionally pick the color stain

What kind of hard wood? Solid or engineered?

You can rent the sanding equipment you need and sand them yourself but if you’ve never stained or sealed one hire someone and watch what e does so you can do it yourself.

As much as I hate to say it bc those hardwoods could be gorgeous, with that linoleum in the hall you might get a better bang by putting down new hardwood or engineered flooring. Having all of the floors the same is highly desirable to most buyers these days.

From a resale standpoint, refinish the floors. From a looks standpoint, hire a professional to do it. Especially if the floors are original.

Well, real wood is more valuable IMO, but some people like the “look” of the gray and white everything. If you’re flipping and want everything to look cohesive and updated, lay some of the new gray LVP on top of the wood.
