One of the most enjoyable aspects of remodeling your floors is the fact that you have a rare opportunity to completely change, or revitalize the look of your home. Since no aspect of your home's decor is more continuous and omnipresent as your floors, they have the biggest impact on the "feel" of your home, and choosing the right flooring style can mean the difference between having chic, modern flair, or rustic, old-world charm.
Having said that, you're probably wondering how best to go about choosing the right floor to achieve the style you have in mind. Don't worry, Premier Flooring Center has you covered with this handy guide to help you choose the perfect floors to achieve the style you're looking for!
Everyone loves to take some time away at a cozy little beach house on the coast. Some people love it so much that they want to have that coastal charm year-round! If you're the type of person who'd like every day to be a day at the beach, you're going to want to choose the right flooring to lay the groundwork for your decor.
The best flooring options for the beach house look are lighter, more washed out wood-look laminate flooring, whitewashed wood, in particular. You could also go for off-white, or even lighter blond wood-look laminate flooring, depending upon your tastes. However, color isn't the only consideration when choosing flooring for a coastal look. You're also going to want to make sure that you use long, narrow planks to create an open, breezy atmosphere.
After that, all you need to do is get some found objects like seashells, thick rope, or driftwood to complete the look!
If you're looking for a more up-to-date look for your home, minimalism is the way to go. You'll want to use dark gray or even black flooring, to get that trendy modern feel. You're going to want wider planks to create a smoother look. You might consider lighter or medium shades of gray for your walls, that are accented with a few splashes of very vibrant color here and there. When coupled with the neutral tones of your flooring and walls, these flashy accents will "pop" and draw the eye to the desired design elements of your room.
Rustic Old-World Cottage
If you're more a "cabin in the woods" type of person than you are a fan of beach houses or modern looks, you're definitely going to want to choose laminate flooring, that captures the bespoke look of a hand-made cabin or mountain-top cottage. This means picking out designs that mimic the popular hand-scraped or brushed wood styles that perfectly convey the feel of a cozy cottage, in the middle of nowhere.
You can then build off of this foundation by accenting your decor with floral patterns, burnt wood accents, and white and gold color choices, to really drive home that rustic charm.
