Coordinating Different Flooring Options Throughout Your Home

Planning the remodel of your home is an exciting process that may even have you falling in love with two different flooring options.

Luckily, the beauty of home design and remodeling is that you don’t have to choose just one style.

There are many ways you can coordinate different flooring options throughout your home to make your space feel a continuous work of art. From the master bedroom to the laundry room, the kitchen, or your home gym, the rooms in your house serve differing purposes and styles, so why should the floors all be the same?

Here are 4 tips on how to have fun with your remodel and coordinate practical flooring options for your gorgeous new house.

1. Appropriate Use of Flooring

When it comes to designing your home, there are many different types of flooring to choose from. Natural stone tiles (like those in Marmol’s catalog), gorgeous wood flooring, carpet, and cement all have their own special place and use in your home. For example, cement flooring is ideal for your laundry room for drainage purposes. Carpeting will work great for turning cold and drafty basements into inviting modern spaces. And natural stone flooring, like marble, adds a clean and luxurious feel to kitchens, bathrooms and living areas.

2. Creating Continuity

When it comes to covering a large living space, stick with the same type of flooring. For example, if your wish is to mix marble tiles with wood floors, make sure you’re not also mixing different wood types or different marble types. Using the same two types of flooring in the appropriate spaces will add continuity to your home.

3. Carefully Choose Your Hues

While you can definitely blend different textures together, be mindful of how the colors will match up with one another. For example, choosing for a dark hardwood floor to line up against a stark white tile may be a jarring sight that’s better left avoided. One way to make sure that your mixed flooring options will flow smoothly throughout your home is to choose tiles and wood that have the same undertones. If you are choosing a dark hardwood, be sure that your matching tiles have a beige or brown hue that will seamlessly blend the textures together.

4. The ‘Less than Three’ Rule

Having more than two different types of floors colliding with one another is confusing to the eyes and may make your space seem cluttered or mismatched. When making your design choices, do not exceed more than two different types of material per floor of your home.
