Why Tiles Increase the Value of your Home

Adding value to your home has never come at a more crucial time. The value of property in today’s market is in a temperamental state, with prices continually moving up and down – but creating a home that will stand out and cut through the noise will ensure your property doesn’t fall victim to the sour selling period.

It is well known that a home that features tile throughout has a higher perceived value. If we think about all the high-end homes in New Zealand we have seen or heard of, most are tiled throughout on floor surfaces and full height Bathroom walls and kitchen splashbacks.

Tile quality is synonymous with style, design, and trends coming from Europe. Countries such as Italy and Spain are renowned for setting fashion trends and this encompasses interior design and associated products chosen for renovation or build projects especially high-end and for those wanting quality surfaces.

There are many ways to boost the price of your property – some more costly than others – but tiling seems to be one of the most efficient and cost-effective ways of upping your property’s price. Selecting appropriate floor and wall tiles can make all the difference when it comes time to sell as tile can instantaneously transform the image of a room while giving it a classic appeal. 

The entrance of your home is your first chance to wow potential buyers, so don’t overlook this part of the house. The layout of your foyer can be the immediate difference in whether someone is interested in buying or not – so making a great first impression can improve your chances massively.

Porcelain floor tiles are not just a source of beauty and enjoyment, though that is what they do best! They are also an investment in the value of your home. As today’s housing market experiences tumult, potential buyers are savvier and can often see past a new coat of paint to the foundation of the home. They are looking for quality, in addition to appearance.

Buyers see beyond the tile: they will see the pride you take in your home, the care you have lavished on it, the beauty that it holds, and the lasting quality they can expect. As the seller, you will be able to ask a higher listing price range because your home simply has a higher value.

Beyond surface appearances, high-quality porcelain floor tiles are very durable and resistant to impact, chemicals, water absorption, staining, and scratching. Maintenance is very easy, particularly with a well-glazed tile. This also makes it a very hygienic choice in any room, particularly the kitchen, and bathroom. This is certainly a selling point for any home buyer.

Tiling shouldn’t be limited to areas within the property, it can also have its place outside your home too. If your deck or pool area needs a makeover then opting for a trendy paving design can be perfect for creating an atmosphere on those lazy summer nights.
