Creative Floor Designs

Share |

We’ve talked about creative wall art, flooring trends 2012, and decorated ceilings but we haven’t yet talked about creative floor designs. Floor is a large area of the room and house as well as ceiling and walls. So sometimes we choose beautiful rugs to jazz up or add warmth to our interior design. The floor itself remains however plain. So here are some ideas on creative floor designs.

Creative Floor Designs

Mosaic/Tile Floor Design

Tile is great in giving a pattern to your floors but it can also be used to create your own pattern or mosaic. Ceramic tile is perfect for floors in the rooms with high-traffic like entrance and kitchens and increased moisture like in bathrooms. There are so many patterns and tile designs you only have to choose what fits best into your interior design plan. Natural tiles can also be used for a dramatic touch think stone, brick, marble.

Leather tiles are soft and can warm up your interior decor. It’s great for sound insulation as well and can be used in study room, library or office. There are many color options in leather tiles now so if you want to add a touch of luxury to your design leather tiles might be what you need.

Parquet Floor Design

Cork and wood (parquet) can also add warmth to the room and add natural look to the room. But these can be painted not only in one solid color but two or more. Create or find drawings that you want to be featured on your wooden floors and hire a professional to paint them. Or if you draw yourself and have a bit of painting practice you could try and realize those drawings yourself but first choose a very small less visible area to try and figure out how it looks.

Linoleum Floors

Creative linoleum and other floor coverings such as carpeting or vinyl tiles are quiet popular in home decor. They are quiet easy to wash and maintain and there are various color and pattern options available. Linoleum or vinyl flooring can also be used in high traffic areas to ease the cleaning.

Creative Floors on Budget

No matter the budget you can always come up with a unique design of your own and with help of some cheap materials realize your ideas. Faux tile floor can help imitate stone flooring without actually spending much money on natural stone tiles. Wood or cork can be quiet inexpensive but with some fantasy and idea in mind you can draw anything you want on them. Linoleum and vinyl tiles are less costly than other types of tiles and floor coverings and they are available in very many colors and designs. However remember than vynil is less durable than ceramic so in the long run ceramic tiles win but if you want to remodel your home more often then vinyl might be what you’re looking floor as it is easier to install and remove.

    Hey! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask. Does operating a well-established blog such as yours take a large amount of work? I’m brand new to running a blog however I do write in my diary every day. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!
