Affordable Flooring Ideas For The House
Whether building a new room or refurbishing an old one, floor installation can be a major expense. Fortunately, there are several options for cheap flooring for any room of the house and keep your building project within budget. One of the simplest flooring options which you can try out is peel and press vinyl or linoleum. This option is one of the least expensive ones and can be laid over any flat surface or vinyl flooring or even over plywood. It can be done quickly to temporarily cover the floor till the time you cover it with tiles or wood flooring. Applying it is quite simple, you just need to peel off the wax paper and press it in the place you need. If you are looking for an inexpensive flooring option for your kitchen or bathroom, using hard tiles is the best option available. These are durable and moisture resistant besides, come in different beautiful styles. Compared to linoleum, tiles are slightly expensive.
If you want to keep cost on the lower side you can go for ceramic tile flooring instead of marble or porcelain and laying it yourself. It is recommended that you add a cement board under layment, but you can also use durable plywood sub floor instead. While laying the tiles start from the middle of the room. The most advantageous feature is that it is possible to cut ceramic with a score-and-snap cutter, instead of using an expensive wet saw. Cork tiles is another option which you can think of. They are much more soft when compared to linoleum tiles, but the cork flooring gives a natural look to your room.
