Renting out accommodation can be stressful as you are never quite sure what your tenants are going to be like. It’s important when setting up your accommodation to prepare for every eventuality. The flooring that you choose for your accommodation has to be durable and able to withstand the comings and goings of lots of different people. To help you pick the best flooring for your place, here are the top floors we suggest for rented accommodation.
Laminate Floors for rented accommodation
Laminate floors are a really good option for rented accommodation. They come in a variety of styles and can suit any interior design look you’re going for. They can realistically mimic wood or tile and also come in a range of patterns- a popular one being grey slate. Another advantage of using laminate flooring is that it is more cost-effective than hardwood for example. This means you can get the flooring for your accommodation for less!
A good tip for laminate floorings is to choose a lighter coloured flooring for the heavier foot traffic areas. A lighter coloured flooring will disguise dirt and dust and won’t need going over with a hoover as much- making the upkeep of your accommodation easier. Laminate floorings can come in different thicknesses and choosing a thicker flooring can actually help with sound insulation, making it the perfect choice for a flat or apartment. It is also easy to clean and hygienic which can help you cut down on your cleaning time. Want to learn more about the installation of laminate floors?

Vinyl Floors for rented accommodation
Vinyl floors are known for being durable, versatile and cost-effective. This is a good choice for rented accommodation because it is stain and water-resistant, making it fairly low maintenance. Vinyl floors can withstand a lot of foot traffic and, depending on the thickness, can be good at muffling noise. It’s a good option for rented accommodation as you won’t have to worry too much about it being scratched or damaged by your tenants.
You could also look into Luxury Vinyl Tiling (LVT) if you want something slightly more realistic looking. LVT is vinyl sheets that are cut into planks and placed down. The grooves this creates gives the effect of a wooden or tiled floor and looks stylishly realistic. LVT has a higher density than ordinary vinyl flooring and is not as thick whilst still maintaining a slight sound-insulating quality.
