4.2 Flooring

1. Contemporary Style Flooring

Flooring Choices: Opt for classic wooden floors, tiles, or vinyl.
Texture and Color: Add interest with plain or geometric-patterned low-pile area rugs.
Carpet Consideration: If necessary (sound control, warmth), consider commercial-grade carpet.

2. Traditional Style Flooring

Hardwood Elegance: Choose hardwood floors with rich woods like red oak, maple, mahogany, cherry, merbau, or walnut.
Entryway Charm: Enhance the entryway with timeless woodwork parquet for an elegant look.

3. Transitional Style Flooring

Luxurious Area Rugs: Consider plush cut-pile area rugs for added luxury.
Neutral Elegance: Opt for neutral-colored rugs (traditional woven, knotted) to complement the room, add texture, and highlight furniture.

4. Modern Country Farmhouse Style Flooring

Wood Flooring: Use wood flooring as a base.
Restoring Original Floors: If floorboards are in good condition, consider refinishing them in a light oak color.
Distressed Aesthetic: Achieve a relaxed atmosphere with a distressed, weathered look.
Clean Finish: Sand flooring and cover with wax or varnish for a cleaner appearance.
Scandi Look: Opt for wide boards in limed oak and maple for a modern Scandi style.
Herringbone Parquet: Choose sophisticated herringbone parquet for a traditional touch.
Mix Planks: Create a less formal look by mixing 12-inch planks with 10-inch boards.
Artistic Touch: Consider painted floors with creative stenciling for an original look.
Porcelain Tiles: Use hardwearing porcelain tiles mimicking distressed wood for resilience.
Natural Fiber Floorcovering: For a rustic or coastal feel, explore plant-fiber floorcoverings in various colors, weaves, and textures. Use jute for bedrooms and seagrass for living rooms and kitchens. Coir and sisal are suitable for heavy-use areas.

5. Eclectic Style Flooring

Abundant Choices: Stone, laminate, wood, and carpet options.
Style-Matching Patterns: Select patterns that match your eclectic style, ensuring long-term enjoyment.

6. Minimalist Style Flooring

Pattern-Free Flooring: Opt for pattern-free, natural-colored options like laminate, polymer coating, parquet, plain carpet, self-leveling floors, and ceramic granite tiles.
Embrace Natural Materials: Add warmth with natural materials.
Room-Specific Flooring: Consider different flooring for various rooms; for example, use long nap carpet in bedrooms.
