Whether they’re dark, light, wide plank or narrow, wood floors are a beautiful update to any room or home, offering modern and classic style in one. Installing wood floors is a big step if you’re transitioning from carpet or tile, and isn’t limited to one room or another. However, you choose to have your floors installed, no one can disagree that everyone wants their floors to be unique. How can you bring a unique look to your home? Here are some tips that will work regardless of your design.
- Wide Plank
Wide plank floors offer a uniqueness that’s special to their design. Whereas most homes showcase a narrower plank, the wide plank will make a small space feel bigger and match the scale of larger rooms as well. The grain in the flooring lends itself to either a rustic or sophisticated design.
- Varied Width
Your floors are a way to express yourself, and what better way than to add a creative touch? Although standard single width is the most conventional way to have floors laid, consider wood floors that are designed with random widths; it’s character is easy to see, and with careful design will look stunning in your home.
Add extra character to your floors by having them laid in a pattern such as Chevron, Herringbone or Versailles. These looks make a room come together and feel more finished while also providing the characteristics of a wood floor. You can choose to mix and match different colored wood to create a design in your floors to really stand out.
Distressed floors come in various plank sizes and colors; most importantly the distressed look adds a depth of character to your overall design. Pine flooring, due to the softness of the wood, is susceptible to distressed marking. You can also choose to have flooring that is specifically distressed for you. If you feel this may be too expensive of a task, there are multiple styles to choose from in luxury vinyl tile. The look is uncanny and can work with most budgets.
Rustic wood flooring can go from reclaimed wood stained to a rich finish, to wide plank pine with knots, to even luxury vinyl tile. The aged look of this type of flooring works beautifully in any room in your home, and gives your home that warmth and coziness you’re looking for.
