How To Mix Flooring On Your Home's Main Floor

Posted on: 19 May 2020

When you have one main floor that's fairly open, you may think that you have to do one single type of flooring throughout it. Although having wood flooring or laminate flooring that looks like wood extended throughout your entire main floor will give it a more cohesive look, there are a few flooring trends that are making a big entrance in interior design and this includes adding different types of flooring into smaller parts of the home. Depending on your floor plan, there are some different rooms that you may want to add a new floor into. 

The Entryway

If you have a large floor plan with an even larger entryway, then you may want to break up the entire look of the floor plan with a unique type of flooring in the entryway. One really popular type of flooring right now to consider adding to the entryway is a checkerboard pattern flooring in a material like marble tile. This old fashioned inspired look can add a really unique and traditional vibe to your home's interior, and it will welcome everyone right in as soon as they walk through your door. 

The Mudroom

Having a mudroom is a luxury that a lot of people don't have, but if you are one of the lucky ones, then you might as well not just embrace it for its functionality but for the ability to decorate it as well. Your mudroom is also another fun place to add a unique type of flooring. Fun flooring trends for mudrooms right now include flooring like cement tile which are traditionally hand-painted tiles that have a fun pattern on them. The other great thing about having a tile floor in a high traffic area like a mudroom is that you can just mop it without having to worry about ruining any wood. 

Butler's Pantry

Butler's pantries are large pantries that are taking over the interior design world right now because they give homeowners an extra space to put their food, pretty dishes, and serving ware that's out of the kitchen. While you may have wood flooring all through your kitchen, adding a flooring like penny tile or small hexagon tile into your pantry may be a great way to break up the space and add a fun design element to it. 

Having unique flooring throughout your main floor can make your home feel more custom overall. To learn more about other flooring options, reach out to a company like Panel Center.


Finding Incredible Flooring For Home

About a year ago, I realized that there were some serious problems with my home. In addition to feeling dated and looking a little dirty, I also hated the flow of the space. I talked with some remodeling contractors about fixing things up, and they pointed out how much of an improvement replacing the flooring would make. I chose a really nice charcoal gray plank flooring, and it made a huge difference. This blog is all about finding incredible flooring for your home and knowing what to avoid along the way.
