Finding the Right Flooring for Your Interiors
Ah, the age old question - where do you start with the room? So, you’re looking to refurb or even transform a newly acquired space into something of your own. Are you planning to start with the colour scheme or even the theme? Maybe you’ve got a piece of furniture in mind and plan to start with that? Or, quite possibly, you’re open to the idea of starting from the bottom and working your way up.
Well, lovely readers, we would have to agree. Flooring can be a huge pleasure to deal with in design and definitely shouldn’t be feared. Some of the very best designs start with a love of flooring and can even be captivating from the bottom up. All you need to do, is start with something you well and truly love.
Now, you know you’re on the hunt for flooring, but do you know what you really want for the space? Have you thought about surface, style and material? All of these really do count and can add to the overall look, feel and theme of your interiors. It’s isn’t enough to start with ideas that you think could work, you have to appreciate the feel of the flooring, the sound and the elements it will add to the overall space.
Take this beautiful treated wood to start with. Refurbishing wood isn’t everybody’s cup of tea, but it can definitely be rewarding. Whether you’re keen to roll up your sleeves and get in yourself, or would prefer to leave the experts to it, you can end up with some really stunning results.
This example focuses on a white wood, but you can stain and paint until your hearts content with traditional woods, pastels and even a gorgeous jet black. The texture itself is quite neutral and can change in temperature depending on the colour you choose and by adding textiles. It’s a great all-rounder.
But that doesn’t mean that you do completely have to go with wood. Stone or marble flooring can definitely be an exciting addition into your interior mix too.
Always available in pretty much every texture and shade imaginable, the variety of stone and tile to choose from is extraordinary, when it comes to design. Whilst harder flooring solutions can often feel cold and unwelcoming a first thought, it doesn’t always have to be the case. Underfloor heating solutions teamed with clever colour palettes and cosy textures can really do the trick. Just like with this slate bathroom design.
So whether you’re looking for feature flooring or something to really set off the room, a whole world of choice is just waiting at your fingertips and we can show you how!
