Well i'm kind of lazy, and I ended up buying a stupidly expensive cage instead of making one or buying one from Martin's Cages. I ended up buying one from Quality Cage Co.

I didn't read it properly and didn't know that they had wire bottoms.

Right now i've got a big bundle of sheets that I have lined on the bottom, but I noticed that my rat will just put all of them on top of her and sleep on the wire bottom. I feel really bad when I see her like that because I know she must not be very comfortable.

I've lined the bottom with some cardboard and then put the bundle of sheets on top of that so atleast it's a little more comfortable.

I'm at loss, anything I could make or use to make the cage more nicer looking and comfortable?

fleece or those little snap together wire floor covers from petsmart and other pet stores. i like the fleece but on hot days it seems to make them miserable.

That's a good idea, thank you.

I would take the wire bottom out but the tray is just not big enough to hold any bedding.

I would think you could use that jungle turf stuff they use for reptile tanks... probably easier to clean and less hot.
