DIY Pallet Flooring


Timber flooring can add that rich and warm look to your home’s interiors. They’re great for kids, for barefoot comfort compared to walking on tiled concrete floors. They’re also low maintenance than carpeted floors. If you love the idea of timber flooring, but don’t have the budget for it, then a DIY Pallet Flooring could be the solution you’re looking for!

Pallets are generally inexpensive or free. They may not look attractive but there are a lot of things that you can do to wood to bring out its natural beauty. You can paint it, give it a new finish, sand or bleach it to turn it into a great flooring material. Or you can arrange the planks in an uneven or diagonal pattern, as you would with tiles. The possibilities are endless, plus you won’t have to spend so much on it.
