If you have a large floor space to cover and a tight a budget, it’s time to explore cheap flooring options. Here we give you some of the best inexpensive flooring ideas which you can apply in your home. If you have damaged carpeting over bare concrete or new construction, consider one of the many concrete stains. Stains sink into the concrete material, to create a transparent, yet colored surface. You can apply these stains yourself with a bit of preparation. The floor surface must be thoroughly cleaned, and tested for any previou sealers. If it’s sealed, you’ll have to apply a sealant remover before applying the stain. Choose acid stains in earth tone colors, or for a large variety of color choices, go with acrylic stains. Use colors that complement your existing decor, or decorate around your new color choice. You can also go for cheap flooring materials, such as bamboo. Bamboo flooring resembles wood flooring and is much more economical than any kind of hardwood flooring. If you are an individual who is concerned about the effect pollution is having on the environment then go for bamboo. It is a renewable as well as eco-friendly source.
Another cheap flooring option is the cork flooring. Cork flooring is softer than tile and makes you feel like you’re walking on air. As an alternative to traditional flooring, cork will not only help to keep the noise level down in a room, it will also help to insulate the area. This cheap flooring can be stained, or you may choose to leave it in its natural state.
