You can make dramatic improvements to your home without spending a lot of money with some do it yourself flooring options.

Good Housekeeping tested almost a dozen types of flooring to see which ones not only look great, but were easy to install yourself.

"Do-it-yourself flooring has come a long way in the last few years. You can put it over pretty much any hard surface now and all you need is a utility knife to cut them," said Good Housekeeping's Rachel Rothman.

You can select from rolls of flexible fiberglass to planks of wood-like material, to squares of connecting carpet tiles.

"We did stain testing, scratch testing, drop-testing, to make sure that they were really quality materials. Another top-rated floor was the Armstrong Luxe Plank. What's great about this is that it's easy to peel off and you simply apply the next tile on top of it," said Rothman.

If you're looking to put new carpeting under your feet, try Flor Tiles. You'll have an assortment of solid and patterned styles to choose from.
