5 Fun Flooring Ideas

  1. Paint Your Vinyl Flooring. Using vinyl flooring and adding your home’s own personality by painting the vinyl is a great way to add character while saving money.

Find a pattern that fits your look and style, lay it out, and watch your vision come to life.
  3. Assist Your Carpet with An Accent Wall. If your carpet flooring has seen better days, give it a proper cleaning and help showcase your carpeted rooms in a better light with an accent wall. Using an accent wall will help bring some of the attention to the other layers in the room that can in turn actually help highlight the positive sides of the rooms other features such as the carpet or a furniture piece. Considering the relatively cheap cost of painting a single wall, this is a great DIY project with plenty of return on investment.
  4. Don’t Forget Your Shower.
