The material you decide to use for your flooring is important. You need to take into consideration its benefits as well as if it will add beauty to a room.There are many great contemporary and classic idea for floors. Here are some choice ideas and how to use the ones best suited to your living space.

Concrete Floors.

Using concrete on the floor doesn’t have to be limited to outside your home. Concrete can be used in various rooms in the house. It is durable, easy to maintain and there are many different color as well as texture effects available, making it a stylish addition to your living space.

Concrete creates clean, modern lines that look elegant. However, it’s worth remembering that concrete can be cold. Thus, the addition of wood accessories or furniture to the concrete flooring can warm it up and make it look more approachable.

Wood.

Wood is usually a popular choice for flooring, but make it trendier with multi-colored wood. Hardwood flooring is beautiful and can add value to your home. It is also durable and can be easily repaired if it gets scratched or scuffed.

Laminate wood flooring is durable and resists scratches, however if a budget brand of it is placed in high-traffic areas of your home it might start to look worn after a few years. Laminate wood looks stylish and warm in a room, and can also work well with other types or colors of wood.

Bamboo Floors.

Not only eco-friendly but stylish, bamboo flooring comes in many different colors, such as light brown or honey. It is a strong and clean surface, but it’s good to remember that it could become a bit darker if it is exposed to sunlight over a long period of time.

If you want to be especially trendy, use bamboo flooring in the bathroom. However, ensure that all water spills and splashes are mopped up immediately as they occur to prevent issues such as swelling. Since bamboo is a type of grass, it has some great bathroom-friendly properties, such as being germ, mould and mildew resistant.

Painted Floors.

Sometimes flooring just needs a bit of color to come alive! Painting wooden floors can be a budget-friendly way of redecorating a room. You can even paint it in a fun, trendy pattern.

A bright, solid color on the floor, on the other hand, can be a bold and interesting move.

Patchwork Floors.
