Transform The Look Of Your Home With Fresh Flooring
Interior design involves a lot of getting everything ‘just right’. Colourful accents placed in the perfect locations take drab and turn it into eye-catching. There is a true difference between elegant and overdone. Functionality must meet eye to eye with good taste. Clashing is a real problem and goes unnoticed, often until the project is finished. There are many details to think about when attempting to successfully turn a design vision into a reality you can enjoy.
The floor you stand on is one major detail hiding in plain sight. There are a vast amount of materials and colours to choose from, and the right floor will complete the vision you had in mind. One major factor in deciding what material to use is how that room is primarily utilized. Carpet would be more favourable in comfortable rooms, like dens and play areas, and generally preferred in bedrooms, where the soft material aids in noise reduction. Stain proof materials are ideal for families. Tile is known for its use in kitchens and bathrooms, where large amounts of water are used. Sometimes a homeowner doesn’t enjoy tile, but carpet isn’t really preferred either. With waterproofing technology available, wooden floors are more versatile than ever. Even a material swap will freshen up a house: cold, white tile in your dining room replaced by golden wood floors; the old, faded wood floors in your bathroom with crisp new tile would make more sense and increase their eye appeal.
Other factors to consider are the colour and texture of the chosen material. Lighter flooring will make a room seem more open and bright, while dark hardwood gives a room a crisp, elegant feel. However, the dark hardwood might clash with existing dark cabinetry and furniture, delivering the feeling of being swallowed by the room. A similar situation to consider is how the new flooring in the hallway is going to look up against the existing carpet when they meet at the office door. A solution could be to renovate the flooring in the whole section of the house so that the entire area maintains the same stylish flow. Utilizing grain direction can mean the difference between your guests’ eyes being drawn to your warm living room, or down the dark, cold hallway.
The directive flow that wooden floors deliver is achievable with narrower and more rectangular tiles, an example of how size and shape is also an important factor in design. This illusion can also be used for a kitchen backsplash, to make the room seem bigger as the slender, horizontal tile guides the eyes around the room. In contrast, giant square tiles in a bathroom will make the already small room seem even more cramped.
