Simple Fixes To Cover Up Ugly Flooring

Vinyl 

A semi-permanent solution to not break the bank is to install vinyl flooring on top of the existing floor. If you are in a rental home, you can use an adhesive that can be removed at a later date. The vinyl tiles or sheets can be installed in just a few hours and can totally change the appearance of your room. If you need to remove the vinyl tiles later, do not grout them as that will permanently lock the tile to the floor. Source: HomeLane

Paint

Painting the unattractive floor is a budget-friendly way to hide surface damage and make your flooring look like new. For a simple look, paint the floor white. However, you can give your room a bold, dramatic look by choosing a bright shade like yellow, green or blue — whatever best suits your decor. You can even use stencils to add a decorative pattern to the floor. Paint is also an effective option for an ugly concrete floor in a basement, sunroom or garage. Source: HomeGuides.SFGate

Floor cloth

What if you’d like to cover up your carpet but can’t afford a large enough area rug or don’t have enough wall space to conceal the awkward border along the perimeter with furniture? Well, area rugs aren’t the only option: You can instead purchase a roll of floor cloth, which is more economical than carpeting, and cut it to size. To take the guesswork out of shrinking the material, purchase preshrunk fabric. Source: BobVila
