Are you looking for a quick way to give your rental property a complete makeover?
Interior design trends are changing all the time. And, if you're having trouble finding new tenants, it could be because your property isn't as stylish as it once was.
That said before you start on a complete remodel, there's a much easier way to breathe new life into a house.
New floors can completely transform the look of a house from the ground up.
Need a few stylish and unique flooring ideas to help you get started? We've got you covered.
Here are five fantastic flooring ideas that are sure to help you attract new tenants.
Herringbone is the epidemy of a timeless look, as it got its start back in ancient Rome. To this day, this intricate inlay can create a simple but striking design in any room.
You could shell out the extra cash for natural wood herringbone. That said, you can create this delicate design out of nearly any flooring material, such as vinyl planking.
2. Honeycomb Tiling
Whether you want to add a pop of colour to a bathroom or create a striking monochromatic look, hexagon, or honeycomb, tiling can help you get there.
Honeycomb tiles are generally associated with more vintage design. But, they've recently fallen back into style in a big way, and will likely not be going anywhere anytime soon.
People generally use tiling in rooms like kitchens and washrooms. But, the intricate design of hexagon tiles fits perfectly in any area.
3. Painted Planks
If you want your rental property to stand out to tenants, painted floors are the way to go.
The best part about painted floors is that you may not even need to install new flooring at all.
Even if your floors are looking a little drab, if they are still in decent enough shape for everyday use, a little paint can make them appear brand new.
On top of that, with paint, you can create some pretty stunning decorative touches your tenants are sure to love.
4. Faux Vintage
If you would like to give your rental property a facelift, while maintaining a rustic look, you may want to consider fake vintage floors.
While distressed floors can add a rich, antique air to any home, traditional hardwood may not be able to stand up to whatever your tenants may throw at it.
Fortunately, you can get the look of distressed wood floors without using any real wood.
Distressed vinyl planks can have the same effect as antique wood at a fraction of the cost. On top of that, vinyl is more durable than wood, so you won't have to worry about renters tearing up your new floors.
5. Going "Greige"
For those who aren't familiar, greige is a combination of grey and beige that has been one of the hottest hues in interior design for the past few years. And it won't be going anywhere anytime soon.
Greige is the ultimate neutral tone. So, no matter what style your tenants prefer, this fair and unobtrusive colour will give them the canvas they need to create their dream space.
