What Houzz contributors are saying:
Focus on flooringFloors, too, should be simple to clean, so choose a surface that’s water-resistant and easy to mop. If you’re after a wooden floor, for example, go for wood-effect porcelain tiles that won’t be ruined by damp.If you have small children, it’s worth opting for a softer surface to avoid any injuries if they fall. A vinyl floor like this one is ideal, as it’s cushioned and has the added bonus of being easy to clean.
Lay some flooringFor a soft alternative to a ceramic or porcelain floor, shop around for some of the beautifully designed vinyl tiles on the market. It’s possible to lay them yourself, and is a project that can be done over the four-day weekend.Start by screwing 6mm plywood boards to your floorboards to create a level surface. Vacuum the wood to remove any traces of dust, then seal by painting with a coat of one part PVA glue to five parts water. Measure the length of each wall and find the centre point of the room – mark this point on the floor with a cross and begin laying the tiles from there. Work your way outwards and cut around the edges with a craft knife, using a template to mark out complicated shapes. To iron out any creases, you can hire a tile roller, or alternatively use a rolling pin.
