DIY flooring ideas come in so many different styles and colors. Gone are the days of plan ol' carpet, tile or wood flooring. We're showing off ideas such as painted concrete, painted tiles and wood floors and a new trend called Floor Pops. If you're ready for a new look for your toes to tread on, look no farther.
Laying new flooring doesn't have to break the bank. We know because recently we decided to paint over tile floors and it turned out amazing! When we were planning to paint our tile we discovered other fabulous budget-friendly ideas for you.
If you thought you would have to hire someone to come in and redo your flooring, we hope that you will be inspired by these DIY flooring ideas and feel as though you can give your home the new look you've been hoping for.

You don't have to have a special talent or trade to be able to change the look of the flooring in your home. Our friends have some great and simple DIY flooring ideas that you are just going to love.
Let's jump in and show you.
FLOOR POPS IN A FARMHOUSE KITCHEN
The idea of laying tile might terrify you, but that's why we want to show you what Floor Pops. It's a peel and stick vinyl floor tile. No grout or special tools required!
Our friend Ashley, from Fontaine Farmhouse, choose the Altair style of Floor Pops for her farmhouse kitchen and it looks amazing!

If you'd like a great step by step tutorial on painting cork flooring, Brittany, from White Farmhouse, provides you just that on her Instagram page and she has a painted floors post on her website too that goes into more detail.
