AD | Contemporary floors to brighten a room on a budget

*** This is a sponsored post ***

You can dress up your home with new flooring even on fixed budget. These low-cost flooring ideas will help brighten and lift your home. 

If you're looking to re-do the floors in your kitchen, living room, bedroom or bathroom, there's lots of options to chose from, and what's more the ideas below can be quite purse-friendly too 😊

1. Sheet Vinyl Flooring

>Advantage: There are a lot of choices that have the same appearance like wood and stone. 
It's very durable and water resistant. It is easy to clean. It can help disguise crooked subfloors. It's a pretty budget-friendly option.

>Disadvantage: The colour may fade. It can be hard to fix.

2. Luxury Vinyl Planks

>Advantage: The floors will look like natural wood or stone without being too an expensive.
It's easy to install on different subfloors. It is smooth to stand or walk on.

>Disadvantage:  It's not made from recycled materials, so it’s not an eco-friendly option. Luxury vinyl colour may fade from too much sunlight. It can be easily scratched from sharp objects.

3. Laminate Flooring

>Advantage: There are so many laminate flooring choices to select from that look like hardwood, cement and stone flooring. It is easy to install and snap together. The colour will not fade from sunlight. It is low maintenance and easy to clean. 

>Disadvantage: Laminate doesn't sound the same as hardwood to walk on. Some laminates are made of formaldehyde and can release VOCs. 

4. Builder’s Grade Hardwood Flooring

>Advantage: It is 100% solid wood flooring. The texture feels warm and natural. Your home resale value will be improved. It is low maintenance and easy to clean. It looks great in any theme or decor of your home.

>Disadvantage: Usually it has knots, holes and other defects in the boards, although some people will like that. Some parts of the board are broken and un-usable. 

5. Ceramic Tile

>Advantage: It is very water resistant. It is very strong and durable. It is easy to maintain and clean. It has so many amazing designs to select from. 

>Disadvantage: The texture is hard and feels cold. It is hard to install. Unglazed tiles require sealing. If you drop something heavy on them, they can crack.

Personally, I really have a thing for floors, mostly tiles. I'm already planning to re-do our downstairs bathroom, there'll be lots of fancy tiles in there both on the floor and on the walls, and a new white bathroom suite - hmm, think I'll have to make a Pinterest board for that :)
