Flooring Options for Renters

Living on a rental property has many benefits as well as hindrances. If it saves you from some responsibilities, so gives you little control. You don’t have to worry if there is some leaky pipe in the kitchen. But you can’t change it either. Most landlords won’t allow making changes in their property, and you don’t want to invest in something that isn’t yours. You can paint the doors and walls or cover them with wallpaper. But what will you do if you have an ugly and battered floor? You can’t change it because you are living on the rental property. You may consider following ideas to veneer the floor without pulling it up or completely changing it. Here are some flooring options that won’t anger your landlord.

Carpet remnants and carpet tiles 

One simple and handy way is to cover the floor with a rug, carpet or carpet tiles.  They are easy to maintain and remove at any time. Rugs are small mats that are spread on carpets. You can also use them as a spreadsheet or wall hanging. Rugs can hide little-battered areas on the floor. But you can carpet the entire floor of a room. If you don’t want to spend too much money on expensive carpets, then use carpet remnants. You will get them at a low price. Moreover, if you want to please your aesthetic sense, you can make a collage of various leftover pieces of the carpet. If you are not running out of the budget, then you can go for carpet tiles. They are a modern and stylish alternative to carpet rolls. They are easy to install as they have peel and stick back or need glue to stick.

Canvas floor cloth 

A canvas floor cloth is another simple way to brighten your room. It will not only hide any unpleasant feature on the floor but also bring innovation to the room. They are easy to maintain, and you can clean it with a mop or sponge. Floor cloths are cheap and easy to make. You can buy them from dealers or get the canvas painted by some painter. Though, it will be fun if you do it yourself. They not only add warmth to the cold floor but also won’t catch the dust like rugs and carpets. You can use canvas floor cloth anywhere in the house. In the kitchen you cannot use rug or carpet on the floor, so floor cloth is the best option.

Floating hardwood floor
