Floating floor

A floating floor, which is a floor that goes in over another floor, is a higher-maintenance endeavor than throwing some peel-and-stick materials up on the wall, but its still far easier to accomplish than most other flooring options. And, if you have some skill and the desire to DIY, you might be able to do it on your own, and really affordably.

The floating process was originally invented for laminate flooring, saidnbsp;Networx. In fact, a major reason why laminate floors have become so wildly popular is that theyre simple enough to install as a weekend warrior DIY project.

Peel-and-stick countertops

Heres something you may not have thought of: peel-and-stick countertops, which use a PVC vinyl base that can make your home look more updated at a fraction of the cost. While they might not be best for high-traffic areas because of their durability or lack thereof, these countertops can serve as a low-cost, temporary lipstick makeover in spaces that you either dont own, dont use often, or cant afford to rehabnbsp;just yet,nbsp;saidnbsp;HomeAdvisor.
