Add Color and Pattern with Carpet TilesIf you want the comfort and warmth of carpet without the hassle of wall-to-wall installation, then opt for self-adhesive carpet tiles. They are simple for DIYers to install, they don't require a pad underneath, and they may be applied directly to wash dry concrete. Here, carpet tiles in white, brown, and 2 shades of red were laid down to make a random checkerboard pattern which plays up the room's fashionable color scheme. To get a less-attention-getting floor covering, utilize one neutral shade.
Paint Stripes on Concrete Basement FloorsFor an affordable and stylish floor finish, paint concrete at a striped pattern. Employ wide stripes of light and dark gray first, then add narrow stripes of brighter colours. Use painter's tape to produce the pattern. Prep the surface by cleaning it with TSP. Remove loose paint and oily stains and allow the surface dry thoroughly. Apply a primer and ground paint formulated for concrete.
