If you are looking at redoing your hardwood floors, because you are tired of looking at the same old, same old floors that you have been looking at for the last few years. When you’re ready to make a change, here are some ways you can change up your floors.
Choose a Horizontal or Vertical Pattern
You need to have a look at two main patterns of flooring: horizontal and vertical patterns. Horizontal patterns may work to lengthen and broaden the room. Vertical patterns may work with your room to draw the eye upward, which is nice if you are looking to make the room appear larger.
Different Sized Boards
If you are tired of the uniform look of your floors, why not mix it up by using different sizes and widths of your new hardwood floors? There are plenty of different sizes and widths of hardwood flooring to choose from. You may want to have one size of board around your kitchen island, while you move to larger sizes throughout the rest of your kitchen. You may also want to mix up the boards in larger rooms to keep up the interest, and break up the monotony.
Speaking of different sized boards, consider having your new boards set at an angle rather than straight. Setting the boards at an angle works to make a small room seem larger, due to the optical illusion of the angled boards. Another way to make a small room appear larger may be to try a parquet floor, or a herringbone flooring arrangement. All of these patterns can work to make a room larger, and also to add interest to any room.
There are so many ways to give your hardwood floor a great refresh, you have lots of options to choose from when you are ready to makeover your floors.
