Need a flooring update but short on cash? These DIY tips can help you refresh a tired floor.

Every homeowner craves the comforts of a cozy, well-designed home. Some DIYers work tirelessly in the hopes of beautifying their homes and saving money at the same. However, not everyone can afford a major renovation, let alone the time to tackle a home improvement project.

The good news is that you can give your house a makeover without doing a big renovation. How? Just look down. Updating your flooring may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you’re looking for an easy way to refresh a tired home, but it makes a huge impact on any room.

Let’s look at three quick and easy flooring updates that can transform the look of your home.

Lay vinyl sheet flooring

There are times when we get so frustrated that we just want to tear up the floor boards. Don’t. Just cover it in a pretty vinyl sheet flooring instead. Fortunately, it’s not difficult to install vinyl flooring over the current floor.

There are vinyl tiles that come with self-adhesive backing, which is perfect for DIYers. Not only is it inexpensive, but it also wears well and resists water. Make sure, though that you prepare your existing flooring before you start.

Paint them

If your flooring is in need of refinishing, but you don’t have the budget for it, you might want to give this one a try.

Painting existing flooring is one of the most common ways to give new life to old floors. It may take some time and patience, but you’ll be rewarded with a clean, shiny, beautiful floor that establishes a new style.

Install stair runner

Installing a runner shapes up a tired staircase and is also a great way to add color and comfort to your stairs. Because the stairs experience a great deal of traffic, it protects your wooden stair treads against wear and tear. Adding a carpet stair runner is also beneficial if you have young kids or are living with older adults as it prevents slips and falls.
