Flooring Ideas You’ll Want to Walk All Over

There is no doubt flooring is a big part of the design process. It is an important element in any room and can make a serious statement. Whether it is beautiful wood or vinyl, a bright colored rug or textured shag, there are many different ways to make your floor a focal point in your space.

First, let’s explore current industry trends that are getting a lot of buzz, like bold staircases. By using a bold pattern on a staircase, you can add dimension to the space and create a visual focal point. A big color trend right now is moody indigo. This luxurious blue makes a beautiful statement and almost acts as a piece of art. Another popular concept is organic textures. Neutral rooms with lots of textures are classically beautiful and timeless. Lastly, it is no secret that animal print rugs have come to stay. They are a huge trend and will continue to be into the future. Explore geometric patterns or animal print, to mix things up a bit – or even think about a colored animal print!
