Many people don’t mind spending some extra money on the flooring of their house, just because it’s done once in a lifetime, or at least once in a very long time. But there are really affordable flooring options out there, and it’s a good idea to consider them for finding an option that suits your interior design ideas.
Vinyl floor tiles are made from soft plastic and they are very inexpensive. The installation cost is also very low. The cheapest option in vinyl floor tiles is the plain type. The textured ones are unnecessarily expensive.
If you prefer the look of wooden flooring, you can create the same effect with vinyl plank flooring. It is almost 75% cheaper and it does look like high quality polished wood.
If you want a flooring that is even cheaper, try wall-to-wall carpets. There are carpets of many different styles and colors out there, and you will surely find one that you will love. Just be careful about the installation price, since that can be higher than the vinyl flooring. Ask about the prices beforehand, and see if they suit your budget.
Another option is ceramic tiles. There are many types of ceramic tiles that can actually be very expensive, but don’t let that fool you. There are also types of very affordable ceramic tiles out there.
Whatever your choice is in flooring for your house, don’t forget that people don’t really “stare” at the floors (unlike wallpapers and pieces of artwork), and the eye actually gets used to the floor’s look quite fastly. And flooring can always be complemented with colorful rugs, old carpets, and kilims, in order to match with the interior design of your house.
