Wednesday, August 19, 2020 10:00 AM

Have you considered making a statement with your flooring design selections? After all, your floors can be a powerful design focal point.

When choosing flooring, you can make your floor something to walk on as well as a statement about your personality and style. So much of your home is flooring and it says a lot about you. Why not make sure the flooring you select not only makes you happy but also matches your personality. 

Here are nine examples to inspire you.

9 Flooring Examples That Make a Strong Design Statement

The examples below capture installations we completed in Connecticut. These Floor Decor Design Center customers wanted to make a statement with their flooring selections, and were delighted with the results.

No surprise, they represent several of our favorite flooring installations as they really add personality to the home.

Three Custom Herringbone Hardwood Examples

1. Maple Grey-Toned 5"-Wide Plank Herringbone

Mirage Maple Herringbone Color Greystone

Maple Greystone 5" Herringbone

This Connecticut shoreline home with beautiful views of the Long Island Sound  opted for the coastal look of grey tone neutrals in both their floor and paint color.

Our client selected the clean look of maple and wanted a timeless contemporary feel. The solution was a floor installed in a herringbone pattern using Maple Greystone from Mirage in a 5-inch wide plank.

Along with the floor-to-ceiling windows and the stunning herringbone installation, this floor is a winner.


2. Red Oak Site Finished Herringbone

This homeowner wanted to make a statement in their master bedroom suite.

Here we installed red oak in a 5" x 24" herringbone pattern, sanded and finished on site to match the color of the traditional red oak throughout the rest of their home.

A statement maker for sure!


3. Mirage White Oak Herringbone Pattern

This gorgeous Mirage White Oak Herringbone pattern inset with around custom border around the perimeter adds a dramatic effect to this home overlooking the TPC River Highlands home to the PGA Tour in Cromwell CT.

One word describes the floor... breathtaking!


Two Approaches For Creating Stunning Additional Spaces

1. Abstract Carpet Pattern for a Personalized Theater Statement

Stanton Carpet Integration Color Marine

                                                     Stanton Carpet Integration Color Marine

Our homeowner wanted to get rid of that "basementy" feel and created a custom theater room in their basement. Take notice of the "Starlite Cinema" marquee at the top of the photo.

They even created a candy counter and movie theater pop corn maker!

For optimum acoustics, we suggested a beautiful abstract pattern in color Marine from Stanton Carpet. Soft and beautiful this carpet added the finishing touch to a great space.

2. Red Oak Luxury Vinyl Tile Design Makes Statement in Family Fun Room

Metroflor Engage Luxury Vinyl Plank

                                                         Metroflor Engage Luxury Vinyl Plank

This additional space was created for family fun. It features a pool table on one side, ping pong on the other side and a large screen TV in the middle to keep everyone busy and happy with everyone spending more time at home.

Here, we opted for waterproof luxury vinyl plank from Metroflor Engage in a red oak to coordinate with the red oak hardwood throughout the rest of the home.

What a getaway!

Two Examples of Hardwood Flooring with an Old World Flair

1. Random Width Planks for a Custom Blend and Historic Charm Statement

Hallmark Hardwood Monterey Ranchero Hickory

                                            Hallmark Hardwood Monterey Ranchero Hickory

This home located in a quaint sleepy Connecticut town was designed with a historical, European influence making it simply savvy. For the floor, the homeowner opted for Hallmark Hardwood Monterey Ranchero Hickory.

The floor is perfect for today’s active families and performs well with kids and pets with its low matte finish.

This collection captures the beauty of nature to create a custom blend with random width planks.

2. The Look of Reclaimed Hardwood for a Modern-Day Family Room

Castle Combe Hardwood Oil Finish Color Chippenham                                   Castle Combe Hardwood Oil Finish Color Chippenham

This homeowner wanted a reclaimed hardwood floor and fell in love with our Castle Combe natural oil finished floor.

With individual boards over 7" wide and over 6' in length, this floor was the perfect choice for their family room. This handcrafted floor is charmingly unique and, with its natural oil finish, will be easy to maintain for years to come.

A real head-turner.


Two Approaches to Taking Carpet to the Next Level

Patterns in a carpet can provide a rich layer of sophistication and design to any room, and oversized geometrics are one of the design trends that have become increasingly popular in the world of home design.

At Floor Decor, you'll find a wide range of options including geometric patterns, organic patterns, large, and small. If you're looking to create a design that will truly make a statement and make others take notice, you may find just what you're looking for with a patterned carpet.
