There is a possibility that you have been part of discussions that included topics like home décor where all aspects of home décor where discussed. But have you ever had discussions or much thought to the décor of the home from the aspect of the flooring. Yes, flooring which most people overlook but which plays a huge role in the look and comfort of the home. It is only when I came across a lovely house that had stark black and white tiles on the floor that I realized the importance of this aspect. Though the house was a lovely one in every aspect, the floor spoiled the look and ambience of the house due to the starkness of the colors used. It was like being in the middle of a chessboard. That is why you have to look at many things for inspiration; even pictures of painted rocks for inspiration can really work.
Beautiful Floor Ideas
If you think that looking at painted rocks is not a great idea to get inspiration for beautiful floor ideas then why not borrow from the past for inspiration to strike you? Look at some of the most beautiful castles around the world and you will surely find something to inspire you there. The people of the past had some really ingenuous ideas when it came to decorating their homes and this will kindle some beautiful floor ideas in your mind too. After all, in the past they had no helping hand from technology and had to rely purely on imagination and the beauty of the materials around them to come up with ideas to make their homes beautiful.
Another unusual but effective source for inspiration could come from looking at some remarkable examples of stained glass art over the ages. It is a fact that strictly speaking, stained glass is for walls and sometimes ceilings and had nothing whatsoever to do with floors, but art is art and it can inspire and ignite your imagination to come up with beautiful floor ideas.
While having an unusual and beautiful floor is something that will add to the aesthetic value of your home and make things really pleasant to look at, you need to keep some of the below given factors in mind while choosing the right design that will work for your home:
Texture: Some floor designs while looking awesome may not have the right texture and this could be a problem in the times to come. Do ensure that you have checked this aspect out before picking on flooring type for your home or workplace.
Maintenance: Many people just go for the flooring in question based merely on how it looks and this can be a mistake as time passes. You have to realize that certain types of flooring need a lot of maintenance which may not be always possible if the floor is being used by a lot of people. What is more, you have to consider that some kinds of floors show a lot of dirt when used by infants etc.
Wear and tear: Not all types of flooring are made equal; each type of flooring will show some wear and tear depending on the type it is. When you are going for flooring that is really delicate and easy to show wear and tear then you have to ensure that it is in an area where people do not walk too much on it.
Weather conditions: Another factor that you have to consider while picking out flooring is the weather. Some types of flooring is conducive to hotter places and some are more suited for colder weather. This needs to be factored into your choice of the floor that you choose.
