More flooring ideas are found in the tile arena. This category alone has seemingly unlimited variety. There are real stone selections as well as man made tiles to choose from. Depending on the look and feel that you want, you may choose a pattern or more of a intentionally random look. Properly placed, either look is beautiful and will add warmth to your home.
This is what makes the choice of flooring one of the most difficult in decorating a house. This may also explain why rooms that are decorated in lighter colors work better with hardwood flooring than rooms decorated in darker colors. A well installed wood floor should never be covered with another material; wood floors are clean, easy to care for, a good value and can complement almost any decorating theme. Yet, its very unobtrusiveness usually requires some additional treatment to give it some drama and carry through a certain style. The best solution is a combination solution. that is. cover the flooring with a rug that reflects the decorating scheme of the room but. at the same time leaves enough of the beautiful natural feature of the wood flooring showing through. A few smaller rugs might achieve the same effect, depending on the size of the room and the placement of the furniture in the room.
Carpeting collects dust mites, mildew, and pet dander, all of which are difficult to remove. It is bad for people with allergies, and is often made from synthetics which are not good for the environment. Carpet tiles are worth considering, since they can be easily replaced, one at a time, if damaged or stained. Another bonus is that they can be installed without using a professional installation service. Often these are made from recycled materials.
