Renewing or updating your floors can make a huge difference to your decor and home’s value. Flooring is typically quite expensive so it if often put off for major renovations but here are 10 amazing DIY floor ideas which can be done as a holiday or weekend project and it doesn’t cost a fortune to buy the materials. So try one of these projects in a room or throughout your house to refresh your personal space.
Stencil & Paint The Floor
This amazingly detailed floor by Young House Love is just a ply wood floor which has been stenciled and painted. They simply pulled up the carpet and painted it.
Simple Painted Flooring
If you’ve got an existing wooden floor which just looks a little worn out, try painting it in a vibrant colour to bring it new life for less than $50. Have a look at the tutorial by Effortless Style.
Different Colour Plank Flooring
Instead of painting the whole floor in a single colour, Design Sponge decided to mix things up and paint them in different shades, making the end result more interesting.
Pine Plank Flooring
These DIY wood floors by Shabby Greek Cottage are made using 1×8 pine planks which were then stained to the right colour for an inexpensive finish which can be done room by room.
Plywood Plank Flooring
This wooden floor by Little Green Notebook was made using plywood which was then cut into planks for a more hardy surface.
End Grain Block Flooring
This type of flooring project by Design Sponge uses blocks of lumber which have been sliced through the grain which leaves an interesting texture.
Geometric Wooden Flooring
Vintage Revivals decided to take us back to a time when geometric wooden floors were the in thing and we love the results. While this is probably more suited for a smaller room or bathroom, there is a bit of charm to the work that goes into it.
Pebble Bathroom Flooring
Pebble floors are typically used in a shower but there’s no reason they can’t be used for a whole bathroom. Something for Nothing made this pebble floor from scratch and it looks amazing.
Black Rubber Matte Tiles
Black rubber tiles are usually used as a flooring choice for a workshop, garage or gym but Door Sixteen used them in a bathroom and the results are great. Using a dark colour on the floor makes the whole room feel a bit more grounded.
One More Stenciled Floor
This stenciled floor by Lovely Etc has a nice finish around the edges and really highlights the fact that you don’t need to spend much to get an amazing result. The plywood underneath your current floor is the perfect canvas for a stenciling.
If making your own flooring sounds like too much work, you could also buy laminate flooring and install it yourself, the actual material is not that expensive and its really easy to do.
