'I’ve very recently decorated my kitchen,' Amy (@ourlifeatno.11) tells us. 'I felt the last finishing touch would be new flooring.'

Although the existing black lino flooring was absolutely fine, it no longer matched the theme she was going for. Having painted the walls and put up shelving and other decor accessories, they were looking a little tired.

Instead, Amy wanted something lighter and a little more funky. So, when she found these monochrome geometric tiles (available online at Home Bargains), she decided to give them a go.

Shop the look:

'I’ve previously used some from a different store and they lasted really well,' Amy shares. She spent £15.92 in total on this easy DIY project - and what a difference it's made.

'It’s really brought all of the kitchen together, it feels so much lighter and spacious,' the DIYer comments. Amy says this budget kitchen ideas was easy to do, and only requires a few tools and a spare hour.

Her top tip is to start laying the tiles in the centre and work outwards. 'Should you need to trim around corners or edges just use a ruler and marker to mark up, and a sharp pair of scissors or a Stanley blade to cut!'
