Flooring styles and options is one of the home decorating and improvement decisions that often take homeowners a long time to finalize. This is partly due to the expense of purchasing and installing new flooring, and partly due to the inconvenience a household undergoes when entire rooms of the home are off-limits due to flooring remodeling. But as styles change and flooring becomes worn out, it is a remodeling adventure that most homeowners must eventually face.
When renovating a home, or when building a new one, antique flooring may be considered as an option or the preferred alternative to carpet or rugs. Some people consider antique flooring both from the standpoint of reusing materials that would otherwise go to waste and from an ascetic perspective. It can also be a sentimental feeling to preserve a part of the old house in the construction of a new one.
Having a carpeted floor definitely has its advantages, but the cost of getting your floor done would definitely pose as a hurdle in getting the flooring of your dreams. Most people would just give up and leave their floors as is. Others would try carpet after carpet, decorator after expensive decorator and would have shelled out enough money to feed a small island for a month. So that got me thinking, “Are there any other alternatives to this dilemma?” Then a friend told me about cheap carpet tiles. The images that flashed through my head were linoleum tiles made to look like carpets. Weird, I know. And so, if you are like me, a person with a very low imagination, bordering on silly, then you had better read on.
