When you’re designing your interior for the first time or remodeling to spruce up your living environment, the sheer number of flooring options can seem overwhelming.

It doesn’t have to be that complicated. In fact, choosing flooring can be fun and infinitely rewarding! Here are the perfect flooring solutions for every room in your home.

The kitchen, much like the bathroom, is one of those areas in your home where a lot can go wrong in a matter of seconds. Between getting the dog out of your way, handling a huge pot of steaming pasta and calling your kids down for dinner, it’s a matter of time before you spill or drop something on your precious floors. This is why your kitchen flooring should be durable and waterproof.

Enter, WPC vinyl flooring. This innovative flooring material has taken the industry by storm.

  • It boasts that highly sought-after luxurious look and feel.
  • WPC imitates the aesthetics of hardwood, sans the maintenance.

Add Carpet Tiles to the Bedroom

The bedroom is a very special place in a home. A sanctum of serenity, a peaceful oasis secluded from all the troubles of the outside world…

…at least it should be.

You can influence the look and feel of your bedroom in many ways to create that unique vibe of comfort and tranquility.

And choosing your flooring wisely is one of them.

If you are looking to imbue the setting with comfort across the board, then carpet tiles are the floor for you. Think of it like a room-wide cushion for your feet, a soft surface that immediately makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside, ready for a good night’s sleep. Choose a fluffy texture in a complementary solid hue that goes with the overarching theme of the room, and leave the whimsical color schemes for the kids’ rooms.

Let Hardwood Beautify the Living Room

The living room, on the other hand, is a whole different story. This is a space that’s supposed to serve a number of purposes, from accommodating guests to providing a family movie night setting. It needs to offer style, comfort and a healthy dose of pizazz. This is the perfect opportunity to coordinate aesthetics with comfy accents to create a balance of the elements.

Let gorgeous hardwood floors crown the foundation of the room and introduce an upscale vibe your friends and family will love. But don’t leave it bare. Instead, layer elegant floor rugs in key areas of the room in order to protect the spots with the highest foot traffic and imbue the setting with comfort as well as beauty.

Make sure to position carpets in complementary hues and patterns beneath furniture to avoid skid marks and indentations on your precious hardwood.

Stick With Tiles in the Bathroom

Some tried-and-tested flooring solutions never go out of style, especially when you’re designing a very specific room in your home, such as the bathroom. Sure, there are innovative trends you can consider, but if nothing manages to tickle your fancy, you can always go back to the good ol’ tile flooring.

The sheer versatility of bathroom tiles when it comes to form and function makes them the ideal choice, especially if you complement them with contrasting accents in other areas of the room. For example, you can choose stone tiles for the base, and then complement the pure-white amenities with wooden accents throughout, such as a wooden vanity, wooden mirror frame, wooden shelves and more.

Extend the Hardwood Look into the Dining Room

Finally, the dining room is an area for that sophisticated hardwood look and feel but without the gut-wrenching fear of spilling something greasy on the surface while handling the food. This is where laminate or vinyl flooring can once more make all the difference, as these materials can introduce the look of hardwood without the regular maintenance and upkeep. Choose a darker, earthy hue for this area of your home in order to add a dash of elegance and make the dining table and accents come to life.
