Do you dislike the floors of your apartment? What if we told you that temporary floor coverings are available that can cover (or completely change) your rental floors easily and without complaints from your landlord?
We are not talking about carpets, although they are not a bad solution. We are talking about full-fledged floors that look great, are easy to install and just as easy to remove as you leave. View these four fast and great temporary floor ideas:
1. Carpet tiles
Carpet tiles are the ultimate solution for making floors. They are recyclable, making them environmentally friendly, reasonably cheap and very easy to install. Worried that they might not be sustainable? Carpet tiles are used in hospitals, airports and other crowded locations around the world.
Order them in boxes depending on how much you need, cut them easily and stick them together with small sticky dots for a cool and unique wall-to-wall look. Order extra so that you can replace damaged ones in the future. And challenge your creative side by mixing and matching patterns and colors.
2. Vinyl Sheet floors
A quick and easy way to conceal unsightly apartment floors is to roll out a large sheet of vinyl floors. You can use a removable glue or double-sided carpet tile to keep the floor in place. Or easily anchor the sheet with furniture. The best part of vinyl flooring is that it is waterproof and easy to wipe clean.
3. Interlocking floor tiles
Interlocking tiles have come a long way from the colorful nursery-playing styles. They are lightweight, fast and easy to click together and do not require adhesives. They also offer some extra cushioning and sound insulation as a bonus.
4. Laminate floors
Laminate flooring is durable, authentic-looking and easy to install as a floating floor. Watch click and close laminate as a temporary solution that requires no nails or adhesives. Add an underlay of foam under the laminate for extra sound insulation.
You can add these temporary floor options to update your dull floor in almost every room of your rental apartment or apartment. Make sure you measure carefully, order extra (just in case) and keep your receipt for returning unused part of the floor.
