If you are replacing your baseboards, consider using stained boards, which are more appealing than painted ones. Not only are stained baseboards more classic, the warm wood tones complement any decor. Less maintenance is involved in the upkeep of stained baseboards and touch-ups are less noticeable. A number of different stain colors are available to suit different styles of decor.
If you are looking to tile a floor on the cheap, pass on stone or ceramic tiles, and use vinyl instead. In most cases, installing vinyl is easy thanks to pre-applied adhesive; the resulting floor surface is durable, strong, and resists water and wear. Vinyl flooring comes in sheets for large-scale flooring projects, and it’s also available in individual tiles for smaller jobs.
Before buying “quality” supplies, see to it that you shop around for the best deals possible. It can be expensive to install new flooring, and you should shop around for the best prices. Seek prices and quotes from discount suppliers and local home improvement centers.
