What Flooring Option Costs the Most?

Are you getting ready to install new flooring in your home? Are you looking at all the options and wondering, ‘what flooring option costs the most?’ Well, no need to ponder anymore because we have the answers. Keep scrolling to get a full cost breakdown.


Hardwood floors are one of the most sought out flooring types. Not only does it look great, but it also can increase the value of your home. However, it is one of the pricier flooring options. Flooring can cost about $5 to $14 per square foot. The overall cost will vary depending on how many rooms need hardwood flooring and the type of flooring you go with. If you have scratched, stained, dented, sun-faded or scuffed hardwood floors, you may be able to save some money by refinishing them instead of replacing them.


Laminate flooring is on the more affordable side of costs. It cost about $2 to $8 per square foot. The pricing will then vary depending on the size of the space and the design. The best thing about laminate is that it is easy to install, and it comes in a variety of colors, designs, styles and textures.


At Valor Home Services, we have a soft spot for carpet flooring. We absolutely love installing carpet, even though many homeowners are moving away from it. Just like laminate, it is one of the affordable flooring options. It ranges from $3 to $7 per square foot. After that, the price varies depending on the amount you need and what brand you choose.

Luxury Vinyl

Another affordable option you can go with is luxury vinyl flooring. It cost about $2 to $10 per square foot. And just like laminate flooring, there are many different styles, colors, designs and textures for you to choose from. Many luxury vinyl flooring is also waterproof, making it the perfect flooring option for bathrooms, kitchens and utility rooms.

Ceramic Tile

Ceramic tile is the lowest on our list. You can get it for about under $2 per square foot. However, specific ones like Spanish or Italian tiles may cost you more. The cost varies depending on the size of the room as well.

Additional Factors

When you are installing flooring, there are additional cost factors that you need to consider. If you are installing the flooring on your own, you need to budget in all the tools, equipment and supplies needed to complete it. For example, you may need a specific saw to cut the boards to fit your room. You will also need to get the installation method — glue, staples, etc. If you work with a flooring installation team, you will also need to consider labor costs.
