Flooring can transform a space while adding character and value. When designing your home, you will explore many different flooring options. Finding the best one to make your home feel unique can be challenging. However, simple tricks for installing floors in unique ways can really make your design pop. Think outside the box and use some of these unique tactics in your own home for optimal design results:
Backsplash on Stair Risers
When adding flooring to your stairs, you probably will consider staining, carpeting, or runners, but have you considered adding tile? This concept is beautiful when done right. Allow the elegance of tile and wood to make your home remarkably stunning. Stain or paint each step and on the back of the stair risers, install a backsplash. While tile can be expensive, this project can range around the price of doing a backsplash in the bathroom or kitchen, and it can really transform your stairwell.
Not all hardwood and tile flooring can accommodate this style, but some flooring options can be installed with the unique herringbone look. Herringbone is a 90-degree, alternating patterned sequence which can be used on the floor or in backsplashes. It is a classic look that can really add a new appeal to the room. While it may take a little more time to prep and install, the end results are fantastic! It is an instant focal point in any room with this catchy pattern!
Carpet Tile in Residential Space
Carpet tiles are an excellent alternative for wall-to-wall carpet. Typically, carpet tiles are used in a commercial application. They come with the benefits of comfort, sound dampening qualities, and help insult a room. Carpet tiles are great because worn or damaged tiles can be easily replaced. With moderate to extreme, carpet tiles come in all sorts of patterns and colors. Consider adding carpet tiles to your home gym or basement!
