If you are interested in updating your flooring to hardwood flooring but you are on a budget, we have a few tips that might help lower the cost. Discounted hardwood flooring can come from many places, from big box stores to smaller local shops. Here are a few ways you can lower the cost of this beautiful flooring option.

How to Lower the Cost of Hardwood Flooring

1: Online. Ordering online often lowers the price from what you would be likely to pay if you bought from a showroom. While this sometimes means that you’ll be unable to see the boards themselves, many trusted companies are able to send small samples upon request and usually have simple return policies. Many of these sites also offer online assistance for anyone unsure of precisely what they’re looking for.

2: The Leftovers. Ask if the shop you’re visiting sells remnants of any specials they might have run. If you only have a small space to cover, then choosing to buy these scraps and remnants left over from other projects rather than buying the planks new can save you quite a bit depending on the style you’ve chosen. You’ll likely be limited to only a few colors, styles, and materials, but this approach can work well for smaller areas like entryways and accents.

3: No Longer Available. Sometimes looking for discontinued styles can save you hundreds on a project. Stores often carry styles that have recently been discontinued at deeply discounted prices. While this does come with the drawback that you’ll be largely unable to make repairs or replacements to the flooring once it’s damaged, it may be worth it depending on which style you’ve chosen.
