Fun-to-install flooring: Two looks you'll love

By: Canadian Living

Get the look of wood and wool flooring... and do it yourself! Any product that is practical, pretty and a piece of cake to "do it myself" is on my must-have list. I'm so fickle – and broke! I like to change things up on a whim when I see something I reeeally reeeally like. And in my business I see way too much that tempts me! These two tempting flooring products are on my gotta-have-it-now list. They're perfect for fickle peeps like me, because I'm confident that they can be installed by moi and can be laid over existing flooring like ho-hum ceramic tile and ancient wood flooring. It'll be worth your time to check out their websites for pricing, retailer locations and more info. I know you'll love them. They're a great way  to instantly update and add fresh new looks to your home and cottage. It's not wood – it's vinyl! Do you believe it? I know, I know! You could swear you were looking at a wood floor, but it's actually a luxury vinyl plank flooring system from Karndean Designflooring called Loose Lay. This unique flooring system offers the look and feel of natural flooring products, such as wood and stone, and is available in practical and durable luxury vinyl planks and tiles. You'll be surprised how quick and easy it is to lay this flooring by yourself or by your contractor. That means saving money!

Loose Lay features an innovative backing system that eliminates the need for glue or click-locking and allows the weight of the flooring system to secure the flooring in place on the substrate below. Since Loose Lay floors are engineered to lay flat, there is no need for rolling during or after installation. The design of the flooring system simplifies repairs – if a plank is damaged, a new section of Loose Lay can be easily dropped into place. Loose Lay flooring is also 100 per cent recyclable. What's not to love?

You can be as artsy or as traditional as you like and create your own customized carpet with  FLOR. Simply choose from dozens of colours and patterns from FLOR's fun collection of 19.7-inch (50 cm) carpet squares and design flooring that will WOW your room. The design options are only limited by your imagination and can be created in wall-to-wall or area rug looks. This easy-to-lay flooring includes FLORdots that connect the squares to each other and not to the floor, making them easy to replace, rearrange, expand or make smaller. FLOR is made out of easy to clean, 100 per cent recycled nylon face fibres with non-skid backing and is recyclable.

Time to take on a few new projects that will get your home ready for all the family gatherings and kids' get-togethers over the summer months. Enjoy! Follow me on Twitter: @KKMe123
