6 ways you could design wooden floors
Wooden floors are a dream house essential – even if you do not have pure hardwood floors, anyone would want to get that particular homely vibe that wood can imbue in its surroundings. So designers have come up with many composite alternatives when it comes to these applications. We now have tiles and laminates and other materials that mimic the organic countenance of wood, so it is easy to have wooden floors in your homes in a cost effective way. Below, we will be looking at a few ways that you could design wooden floors in your homes.
- All out, all around
If wood is your aesthetic of choice, then it would be best to work with wooden textures throughout the interior. The image below shows the perfect combination of both – where the two toned wood has been used to demarcate a line between the floor and walls. The overall effect is cozy and intimate with a dash of amazingly stylistic.
- Mix and match
If you’re a fan of diversity then mix wooden accents for the flooring with something else – a material that will complement the greater part of its aesthetic. The image below shows a great combination between stone themed floors against their wooden floor counterparts. They both complement each other in ways that balances out their unique visual stigmas.
- Simple and sweet
Simple wooden floors have a charm of their own. Straightforward designing is one of the best ways get that old-school charm in your homes. There are many ways to find alternative wooden floor materials even if you think hardwood is way out of your budget – so fear not, and go for it.
- Dark and moody
While most people only recognize a certain genre of wooden floor applications – the bright and breezy one – there is a whole other mood set out there. The image below showcases the dull, gloomy, chocolaty wooden counterpart to its bright brethren and it is just as – if not more than – inspiring as the brighter wooden floor versions.
- Ash wood
Partially light, but still a little dull in texture in an inherent way, this kind of a wooden floor is for people who enjoy a little zany diversity in their homes. In the image below, you will see just how beautiful these kinds of wooden floors have the potential to look if paired with the right accoutrements.
Finishes are pretty important, especially when it comes to wooden floors. Matt or gloss is the question to be asked. It depends completely on the kind of ambiance you’re going for, though. The image below shows a glossy wooden finished flood that reflects the toe-kick lights hidden beneath the bed.
