Luxury vinyl flooring in AustinNew flooring can have a positive impact on the overall look of your Austin home, and thankfully, it doesn’t have to break the bank. The Floor Coverings International® of Austin team can help you select the best floor that meets your needs and budget.

If you find yourself shopping for new floors on a tight budget, be sure to consider these excellent, high-quality flooring choices:

Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl has come a long way since its inception into the flooring industry. Luxury vinyl now comes in stunning design options, created to mimic high-end materials like stone and hardwood. Of course, choosing a vinyl floor instead of these natural materials will cost the homeowner significantly less. Selecting this option is, in essence, choosing a high-dollar look for a fraction of the cost.

Ceramic Tile

The look of tile flooring is elegant and classically beautiful. Thankfully, by selecting ceramic tile, a homeowner can achieve this look without busting their budget. Natural stone and even some porcelain varieties of tile can be costly, but ceramic is quite affordable and versatile.


Carpet is usually one of the cheapest types of flooring available to a homeowner. In its looped form, like Berber, it can stand up nicely to high traffic areas. However, in its cut-pile form, homeowners should stick with low-traffic areas.

Olefin is on the lower end of carpet fiber options cost-wise, while nylon is on the higher end. For a smart value, consider polyester, which is more durable than olefin but cheaper than nylon. Polyester is available in a vast array of colors and styles and is fairly stain-resistant.

Laminate Flooring

Inexpensive flooring options of yesteryear had an inherent weakness: moisture or water damage. Today’s laminate flooring is much better in that department, and the continued cost-effectiveness of laminate makes it an ideal flooring choice for many homeowners.
