2) Paint Jobs
Another step in the direction of NOT buying a brand new floor or a carpet but rather optimizing your existing one would include a couple of brushes and a lot of paint! (Well, depending on the size of your property, really.)
To pull this off, make sure to take into consideration factors such as the color of your walls, the way the light throws its rays through your windows, as well as the configuration of the furniture in your apartment. Imagine ending up with a swamp-green floor and you’ve got something like purple walls! (But then, why do you have purple walls? What are you Julius Caesar?)
Just kidding, of course, everyone’s free to do whatever they like with their walls. (Even painting them purple.)
Commonly seen in apartments and houses alike, a well-polished and ‘puzzled in’ parquet can represent a massive asset to the person at the helm of a floor looks-enhancing operation, so to speak.
Wooden parquets, in general, are hard not to like, as the natural properties of wood will make even the worst sort of botched parquet installment look like, ehm, well,… wood!
Bottom line, stick a bunch of wooden planks to the bare bones version of your floor, make sure they all fit together, polish it up (No splinters, no funny business!) and Bob’s your uncle!
4) Area Rugs
If you find that the floor itself isn’t chic enough for your taste, or you just like that fuzzy feeling beneath your feet as you walk across the room, getting yourself an area rug can be a perfect solution for your needs!
Whether it’s your living room, bedroom, bathroom, or indeed your pantry, a strategically-placed area rug can turn it into a comfortable environment you’ll love to walk about. Heck, even a well-placed anti fatigue mat could do the trick fairly well!
The great thing about this solution is that rugs come in all shapes and sizes, so you’ll be able to choose to your heart’s content!
Mind though, that rugs also mean that you’ll have to put in a little bit of extra effort in their maintenance, lest they become dusty, lice-infected and smelling like a thousand badgers died together in one rancid heap.
All things considered, turning your floor into a pleasantly-looking part of your household isn’t really nuclear science. All you need to do is invest a little bit of effort in repairs and maintenance, choose a good looking surface et voila!- You’ll have a top o’ the line flooring area in your home!
