Today on the blog we’re looking at some unique flooring options that really make a statement.

What’s beneath your feet can be just as important as what’s on your walls when it comes to making an impression. Miles above standard hardwood or laminate, these floors are show stoppers. Maybe these examples will even spark some ideas the next time you’re in renovation mode.

Walking on Glass

Kind of like being at the top of a really tall building and looking down, or in a glass bottomed boat, the glass floors in this townhome are slightly unnerving but also exhilarating. They also complement this homes gorgeous architecture, don’t you think?

Shock of Colour

There’s something about this look of bright floors with stark white walls that I really like. If you have hardwood that’s in less than perfect shape this is a great way to cover it up while making a real statement. Hot pink floor anyone?

Juxtaposition

This kitchen tile is beautiful but I think what really makes it stand out is the more traditional pattern alongside a thoroughly modern kitchen. It goes to show that often the unexpected option can create the biggest impact.

Seeing a Pattern

These herringbone floors washed in natural light are just lovely. Laying regular hardwood floors can be a real pain, so I can only imagine how much effort went into this impeccable design. There is something about this room that is so peaceful.

An Artistic Touch

I’ve seen so many inspiring examples of painted floors lately but I’m always curious just how long you can keep them looking nice. It sure is a great way to add some visual interest to a room though; the oversized pattern on this painted floor is just stunning.

Au Natural

Materials such as slate, wood and stone are great when you’re trying to achieve a zen bathroom. I love these porcelain tiles that are wood grained to mimic the look of hardwood while being practical in a bathroom.

Where would you rather make a statement in your home, on the floors, on the walls or through your furnishing choices?

Happy Friday Everyone!
