Whether it's for Taco Tuesday, wine night with the ladies, homework sessions, or chow time for our four-legged friends — the kitchen is truly the space we congregate in the most. 

Because of that, our kitchen floors can take a bit of a beating — so it's important to choose flooring that is up for the task. Ideally our kitchen floors will be beautiful, easy, and of course, durable. Luckily, nowadays the variety of materials, colors and textures are endless — so it’s just a matter of knowing and narrowing down your options. 

Ceramic, Porcelain and Stone tile are classic and smart choices for high traffic areas. They are low maintenance, yet extremely tough. Tile is a favorite amongst many for its extreme durability, and resistance to stains and moisture. 

Wood is another widely popular choice for today's kitchens. A great option for those seeking the seamless lines of an open floor plan — wood feels soft underfoot and adds warmth to any space. Today's prefinished wood floors stand up especially well against heavy traffic and any accidental spills. 

Vinyl is also a strong option to consider. Perhaps the easiest to maintain and the cushiest to stand on when cooking those big holiday meals — vinyl can provide a beautiful aesthetic, without breaking the bank. Just be sure to select a textured vinyl to provide traction, as this flooring can be extra slippery when wet.

Ask any real estate agent, and they will tell you that Spring and Summer are considered the “hot” seasons to sell your home. This should come as no surprise, as most families want to purchase and be settled in time for the new school year. 

If you're getting ready to sell this season, it’s a smart idea to make some small improvements that can greatly improve the salability of your home. For the most part, improvements need only to be simple and inexpensive — but buyers will undoubtedly notice the difference! 

Clean Things Up 

It may seem obvious, but dust and dirt can be a real turnoff to prospective buyers who are looking for their “new" dream home. To make a great impression, consider having your flooring and window treatments professionally cleaned to freshen up the space. 

You should also take some extra time to de-clutter. Not only will this help with the sale, but it will also help with your move! Clear old clothing from your closet rods and show off some floor space. Also, don’t forget to tidy your pantry and kitchen cabinets. 

Give Your Bath a Bath 

Everyone loves a beautiful, serene and clean bathroom. But even if yours is less than updated, there are some small fixes you can do for big impact with buyers. 

If your toilet seat cover is old and discolored, replace it with a new one (it's inexpensive and very easy). Change out your shower liner and curtain for something new and neutral. And for a really big impact, have your tub recaulked — it won’t go unnoticed.

Let The Sun Shine In 

There's nothing like great natural lighting, so be sure to keep draperies light and airy, and of course — open! Replace any missing or dim light bulbs, and try to avoid unflattering florescent lighting whenever possible. 

Do Some Touch-Ups 

You might love your green bedroom, but it's safe to say not all buyers will feel the same. Give your home a fresh coat of paint in a neutral grey or beige. There's nothing quite like it to easily revamp a room — and luckily it's extremely affordable. 

There are many other small 'touch-ups' you can do around the home that are easy and inexpensive. Consider changing out dated hardware on cabinets, and tossing those decade-old vertical blinds. You'd be surprised how much impact a brand new clean doormat can make! 

Make Your Floors Fabulous Again

The floors in our homes take a serious beating, and if yours look worn or outdated, it will likely have an effect on the salability of your home. If you're opting for an update, it's always smart to keep new flooring neutral so that it will appeal to a wide range of buyers. Also, it's a great idea to consult with your realtor to determine what type of flooring is most desirable in your neighborhood.
