Creative Flooring Ideas

If you want to create a lasting first impression of your beautiful interiors, you need to start with the entryway floors and weight up the hallway which is the area where your guest will first step into. Of course you can continue the lovely flooring to the other rooms as well. Let me tell you that adding a unique touch to regular flooring is the trick to making it look the best. There are a number of creative flooring ideas which can be considered to make your interiors look appealing and truly unique. Even with the most common floor tiles you can create an uncommon and appealing space that spruces up your interiors. Let’s move on to find out the unique ideas.

Lovely Layouts
Before you explore the various ideas and use new tiles to cover up your interior floors, you can stick to the basics and still create an eye catching floor surface. Let me tell you that nothing can replace the charm of natural tiles like stone, granite, brick and marble. These give a warm and rich touch to your interiors without much effort. Further tryout various layouts and design patterns to have creative floor designs with these plush tiles.

Add Inlays
No matter which tiles you are use, adding inlays is a great way to add interest to the plain and simple floors. Also, consider adding inlays to create lovely borders, round or square patterns which rest a few inches away from the walls or any other patterns that you find interesting. Use inlays of the same material as that of the floor or use inlays of another material, the right combination is sure to create a beautiful looking surface. Patterned wood laid in simple wood floors, wood laid in tiles, tiles laid in tiles like mosaic in ceramics, pebbles in marble can all make nice combos.

Rug or Carpet Effect
You always have the option of using attractive floor mats, area rugs and carpets to make the floor attractive. These add a warm touch to the floors and help highlight certain patches in the total span of the flooring. One of the cheaper ideas is to add that area rug or carpet effect in between the large area of flooring. You can easily do this by choosing an entirely different type and/or color and/or design, shape and size of tiles that are smartly laid to create a pattern which closely resembles area rugs or carpets. Well, creating this effect is not easy and you’ll need skilled labor for the same. Simplest designs with borders and nice choice of colors can play up the beauty of your floors.

Dual Toned Look
One of the creative, inexpensive ideas is to get a dual toned look with two sets of tiles used for creating attractive surface. Use tiles of same type and dimensions and lay them in a basket weave layout style to create a nice dual tone effect. Get two sets of tiles, one in a dark, and one in a light shade. Make sure you include a light and dark shade of the same color for the perfect dual toned look. This is also a good plywood flooring idea where two shades of planks can be used alternately for creating dual toned floors.

Add the Gracious Glass
Nothing can create the magic of glass tiles which can also work well in combination with other simpler tiles. All you need to do is find the right combination of color and get a set of glass tiles to jazz up the simple ones. Of course glass tiles must be used sparingly, just for the purpose of playing up the floors. You can use small square shaped glass tiles and install them in double rows to create a beautiful pattern or border work in between the other floor tiles.

Patterned floor tiles that give a traditional look to the floors and that complete carpeting effect are also nice picks for creating unique floor patches in between the regular flooring area. With so many options that the world of floor tiles offers you need not work hard on finding the ultimate design pattern for spicing up your floors.
