Since we moved into our current residence about five years ago, the list of home upgrades never seems to end. Once one item gets crossed off the list, a few more get added on at the bottom. Today I’m discussing some easy ways to upgrade a room, featuring the awesome DIY flooring options available from Achim Home Décor.

1. Paint

A new paint color can make a big impact in exchange for a relatively small amount of effort. Plus, it’s relatively inexpensive to buy a gallon of paint and transform a room’s color – and its mood – in one afternoon. Having trouble committing to one color? It’s totally possible to change a room’s color again and again. Even more exciting is the possibility of painting a bold accent wall or using a faux painting technique to create something truly eye-catching that’s sure to impress guests.

2. Flooring

When it comes to upgrading a room through its flooring, nothing is as easy & convenient as the DIY flooring products from Achim Home Décor. Now available at Walmart, there is a wide range of products (Nexus Carpet Tile, Portfolio Plank, Portfolio Tile, Vinyl Floor Tile) from this line so you’re sure to find something that’ll suit your taste.

These are all cost-effective ways to improve a space. Plus, I’m already shopping at Walmart  a few times per week for my household essentials, so purchasing flooring at the same store couldn’t be any more convenient!

Achim Nexus Carpet Tiles offer such a fast way to upgrade your space with a modern take on the traditional carpeting. These carpet tiles are on display so you can feel for yourself just how soft & comfortable they would be underfoot. 

The possibilities are endless with these carpet tiles.

  • You can mix & match colors to form interesting checkerboard patterns.
  • You can apply it wall-to-wall for a carpet look.
  • You can create a large “rug” look by not going all the way to the wall

Perfect for the home, office, basement or garage, these tiles are 12″X12″ each. Plus, installation is a breeze- simply peel and stick the tiles to a flat, dry surface. For the past few months, we have been thinking of adding carpeting to the kid’s playroom and these carpet tiles fit the bill perfectly. 

The Achim Portfolio Plank & Tile line features 2mm self-adhesive vinyl floor tiles that are available in gorgeous colors. Another affordable, do-it-yourself flooring option, the Achim Portfolio line can upgrade your space with minimal effort.

The current flooring in my home office has seen better days and these Achim Portfolio Planks look perfect for that space. These tiles/planks are durable, commercial-grade and easy to install. Just peel and stick to a flat, dry sub-floor. No tools or messy glue to deal with, since they can be easily cut with a utility knife. Since they’re on display, it’s so easy to see the beautiful grain pattern up close!

The Achim Nexus Vinyl Floor Tile is yet another smart flooring option that’s suitable for any room of the home, including the kitchen, dining room, bedroom, bathroom, foyer and basement.Peel and stick the tiles onto a flat, dry surface. With 20 tiles per box, you can expect to cover 20 square feet with each box.

3. Accessories

I have always used accessories strategically to bring a room to life. Think of comfy throws, decorative pillows, artwork, and rugs. The right set of room accessories can totally influence a room’s vibe. Want a cooler, nautical feel? Go for wicker accents, plenty of natural materials like wood, and blue pops of color. Does the Hollywood glam style speak to you? Choose dramatic colors like black & red, brilliant mirrored surfaces and lush textures like faux fur & velvet.

4. Lighting

A light fixture may not be the first thing you think of when you consider upgrading a space but the reality is that an outdated fixture can really bring a room down. Furthermore, a dim room can feel uninviting and unkempt. Switch to bright lighting that complements your home decor to kick things up a notch or two! 

5. Furniture

Whether you’re upgrading the play room or the bedroom, a new set of furniture can completely transform the space. Even making some DIY upgrades to the furniture you already have can be a cost-effective way to change things up. For example, consider painting the dining table or the coffee table and it just might feel like a brand new piece. If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, you could reupholster chairs or sofas with a fabric that speaks to you.
