Homeowners who want to add value to their property with a DIY project may want to install hardwood flooring.
According toRatedpeople.com, hardwood flooring adds to a home’s saleability.
Ottokar Rosenberger, director of sales and marketing for Ratedpeople.com, said the flooring type was an ideal solution to have in homes.
"Good hardwood flooring can offer the same levels of insulation as carpet except with improved allergy relief, whilst also carrying a long term benefit to saleability and value," he added.
DIYers wanting to insulate their home more should be aware that hardwoods are good for retaining heat and the small pockets of air inside the wood make it stay warmer than carpets or laminates.
According to Ratedpeople.com they are also easier to lean than carpets and do not hold pollen or dust mites.
This advice comes after Ratedpeople.com claimed that Brits are starting to spend more money on their properties.
DIYers were spending an extra 3.3 per cent compared to last year, the report said.
