Floors can be dark or light to highlight the décor and not to distract attention from it but what if you want something brighter? Then go for bold floors! Colorful, patterned, stenciled and mixed, these floors will help you make a gorgeous statement and maybe even become a center of attention here. Bold floors add style, create an ambience and special charm in even the most ordinary spaces, so it’s time to figure out if you need them.
In Entryways And Hallways
Hallways and entryways are among the most popular places where people make bold floors. Why? Because when you first come in, the first impression is a very important thing, and bold statement floors help to impress. Here the most popular material is marble, stone or concrete because all of them are super durable, hard to spoil or crack and are easy to decorate, for example, stain the concrete and pattern it. The most popular is some striking combo of black and white, graphic and geometric patterns, just add a statement mirror and chair and voila, your entryway won’t be forgotten!
Kitchen is another super actual place to make a statement with floors. Tiles, wood and concrete are the most popular materials to be used for kitchen floors: concrete for durability, wood for the warm feeling it leaves and tiles are very easy to install and you’ll get color and pattern at once. Modern designers create an unbelievable number of bold and patterned tiles, so I’m sure that you’ll find your best ones. Painting wood or concrete is another great idea, for example, painting the floors sunny yellow, you’ll add positive to your kitchen décor.
I’d say that bathrooms are number one in decorating floors in bold ways, and that’s not surprising. Bathrooms are often small and rather clean in décor, it’s rather difficult to make a statement, while rocking bold floors is easy. Bold floors also show off neutral or all-white bathroom décor very well, so such a bathroom looks striking. The most popular materials to use for floors are concrete and tiles, due to their durability. Bold tiles can be patterned or clad in patterns and they can also go up to your bathtub or shower to tie up the spaces.
In Living Rooms
This isn’t the most popular idea as floor accents here are usually made with rugs but still there are some options to try. As for living rooms, these are mostly wooden floors, painted, stenciled or finished in various ways. I totally love herringbone wooden floors in various shades and colors, and a new trend – gradient wooden floors. You can easily make a statement yourself using reclaimed or barnwood and finishing and cladding it in various patterns.
In Kids’ Rooms And Nurseries
Speaking about kids’ rooms and nurseries, I’d say that bold floors aren’t that popular there because everyone prefers bright rugs. But if you want a statement for a nursery or a playroom, go ahead and make it! Colorful tiles with fun prints are a great choice cause of durability and easiness to maintain. You can also paint wooden floors or stencil them to create an atmosphere in the kids’ room, for example, create a brushstroke effect or just paint the floor bold to cheer up the children.
