You can find hardwood flooring in a variety of colors, widths and thicknesses. In terms of patterns, there are strip flooring, plank flooring, and parquet flooring. They are also easy to maintain and can be re-sanded and refinished several times to remove stains and scratches. Moreover, hardwood flooring is durable, so it cannot be damaged easily.

The major downside with hardwood flooring is that it is not as easy to install – you will need to hire a professional to do the installation. They can also be expensive for rental property flooring. Only consider it for more upscale rentals.

Carpet Flooring

Carpeted floors are soft and suitable for children and the elderly. They come in a large variety of colors, materials, sizes etc. Although the price of carpeting can vary a lot, you can still find nice options that are not very expensive.

In terms of installation, professional installation is required but the cost of installation is cheaper than hardwood floors. Carpets can get very dirty and it is not easy to clean and maintain, especially if your renter has a pet.

Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl is easy to clean and maintain. Vinyl floors are soft, durable and affordable. You can find a large variety of vinyl for your house, in terms of colors, materials, etc. It is are relatively easier to install but it is always advisable to ask a professional to install it.

Laminate Flooring

Since laminate flooring mimics hardwood, you can find it in a variety of colors, patterns types, widths and thicknesses for your rental property flooring. Laminate floors (especially the snap-on ones) are easy to maintain and install. However, they are not soft or durable. Also, laminate is not an eco-friendly option being manufactured with toxins and resins.
