Adding flare to your floor

Adding flare to your floor

Style inside the home: some says it is in the design of the walls, while some rally that it is all in the light. Some revert to the tired argument of the palette; some say it all lies in the furniture and accessories used. What everyone seems to be forgetting, however, is the power of the floor to bring in an unexpected token of style.

Everybody is leaning towards hardwood floors these days, and it really is not that hard to see why. Hardwood floors are beautiful, durable and flexible. Some grains are also quite versatile that you can actually mix it up with other materials for a unique design flare.


Maple hardwood is beautiful in its own right, but becomes a completely different sight with the addition of wood planks in a geometric pattern. It could easily be the design focus of a room and a design separation or marker between the hall and the main room.


With that said, you shouldn’t feel tied down to just one flooring option. Mix different elements with different textures and contrasts, like hardwood and vinyl. Be creative in the ways you mix them and do not let boundaries and lines stop you from creating visual interest.


If mixing two flooring options is too much work for you, just grab a paintbrush and get to painting. A plain hardwood floor can look Moroccan-inspired with the right colour and stencil. You can also mimic the chevron pattern in tiles or the elegance of marble depending on the vibe you are going for.


When in doubt, go black. If executed and finished right, the room will look sophisticated and even feel sexy. Don’t worry about the room looking dark; with the right lighting and accessories, it is going to look straight out of a magazine.


Again, you can never really go wrong with timber floors. Just have them installed in unique patterns. Not only is this visually interesting, it also muffles scratches and stains. You can also consider adding a hint of colourful tiles for visual variation.
