Expert Floor Design and Installation

A Well-Executed Floor Color Scheme Coordinates with Home Décor

Decorating your home with a mixture of black and white can make for a striking look. If there is a part of your living space that seems a little too ordinary in its design or could benefit from the addition of a focal point, then contemplate executing this color scheme into your floor. A checkerboard layout, while a classic look, is not your only choice when trying to pull off this color scheme. With a little innovation and an open mind, you can give your floors a fresh and fashionable makeover.

Instead of the popular robust colored square design, try a fun geometrically shaped pattern tile. It will be a welcome and unexpected look upon entering the room. To make sure that it is the star of the show, keep décor simple but functional. You want to draw the eye downward while also making sure that you do not sacrifice the purpose of the room.

Not all black and white floor improvements need to be installed. Simply adding an area rug with these two colors under a glass table will give guests pause to look through it. Be sure that there is a clear view of the rug’s design so that it can be showcased appropriately. The pattern is up to you: zebra print, chevron stripes, or even an abstract floral are all great options. You want your personality to shine through, so be bold!

Luxury vinyl flooring is a great choice, as well. Modern luxury vinyl has a delightful variety of available patterns in tile and wood looks to make the procedure easy for you. No idea is out of reach! More subtle models are available as well for more subdued tastes. That’s what makes this choice mixture fabulous: it can work for everyone!

Lastly, if you want to keep your colors detached, try dark stained hardwood flooring that leads into a room full of white tile. You can still enjoy the look that these two colors create without interspersing them throughout the same space.
