My husband recently died with dementia. He did not know where the bathroom was so went wherever.

Keep a record of all capital improvements. You use those to offset capital gains when you sell the house.

I doubt it, because it is your choice to update the carpet and flooring.   I can truly understand why you want to do this.

Now if you were selling your home, that could be deducted as a home repair in order to sell your house, but the sale has to be within a certain number of months.
