Zig When They Zag
This already wow-worthy his-and-her closet is taken to the next level with a painted zigzag floor in turquoise, apple green and white. Not only does the floor bring bright color to this mostly-white space, it also infuses a contemporary motif that becomes the true star of the room.
This open living space with retractable glass doors that seamlessly blend the indoors with the out is already a showstopper. Herringbone reclaimed wood floors ground the space with rich texture and pattern. Warm earth tones throughout the rooms reflect the natural surroundings that are such an integral part of the design.
Make a strong first impression with a stop-in-your-tracks foyer. in this expansive entryway, a black-and-white geometric pattern was painted on the wood floors, taking it from typical to remarkable. High-gloss airport runway paint is used to ensure the composition won't fade in this high-traffic area.
Grounded in Delight
Full of charming details, from the scalloped range hood to the cherry red drawer knobs, this cottage kitchen wouldn't settle for a typical floor. A blue-and-green argyle-inspired floor creates the just-right base and adds a hefty measure of soft color to this inviting, family-friendly space.
Matte oak flooring greets guests as they enter this metropolitan home. However, the stunning focal point is the marble tile inset, which adds an undeniably sophisticated touch. Proving that a statement-making moment doesn't have to take up the entire floor space — a well-placed pop does the job.
Petite Space, Max Impact
Bathrooms are an easy place to play with flooring. A little goes a long way in a smaller space, and less square footage equals less money you have to spend. In this contemporary bathroom, colorful yellow-and-gray graphic tile is used to maximum effect. Repeating the tile in the shower niche helps to draw the eye through the space.
As much as you may love the look of hardwood, it's not a practical element for bathrooms where water exposure is an issue. Enter wood tile, which gives the look you want without the worry. Here, wood tile is laid in a classic herringbone pattern that fits right in to this farmhouse-chic bath.
Highlight One Hue
Bring life to older hardwood planks by embracing one captivating color. These painted teal floors completely energize this country dining room and create a balancing act between the rustic woods and vintage metals.
Take It Outside
Statement floors are not just relegated to the interiors. This deck is completely transformed with a stenciled graphic layout in bright blue, red and white. Use painter's tape to create a truly custom look underneath your next backyard party.
Say It With Diamonds
Take traditional hardwoods from background to centerstage with a chic painted design. White diamonds mix with the warm wood floors to create a traditional harlequin look in this rustic-meets-industrial kitchen.
Even subtle shades can make a big impact. Light blue-and-white stripes perfectly fit into this menswear-inspired bedroom. Heathered gray walls combine with an upholstered plaid headboard and men's shirts turned into one-of-a-kind pillows. Smooth mirrored furniture balances out the variety of textured fabrics.
Paint It With Flair
Whether your floors have seen better days or you love spicing up your space with an unusual twist, painted floors are your answer. In this contemporary breakfast area, contrasting orange-and-white hues are painted in a chevron pattern, bringing major style underfoot.
Adding standout style to this cozy living room, the geometric floor is a timeless mix of diamonds and octagons in a soothing two-toned gray palette that grounds the room in pure sophistication. The subtle print enhances this eclectic living room without distracting from the room's fabrics and finishes.
The Case for Chevron
Creamy white and soft gray combine in a dynamic hardwood floor in this contemporary-meets-cottage kitchen. The dramatic design elevates the room from the ground up with its classic yet updated style.
Used to Unify
Blend multiple spaces together with a cohesive floor. Instead of using traditional hardwood or tile flooring, thin black boards laid in a herringbone pattern not only bring in tone-on-tone texture, but they also seamlessly combine the kitchen and breakfast room with the cozy seating and desk area.
A Neutral Moment
Yes, neutrals, too, can be intriguing. By mixing classic hexagons with an earth-tone palette of varying sandy hues, this mudroom's floor is just as dazzling as our other brightly painted ones. If you tend to stick to safer shades, try something like this to up your floor game.
All in the Stripes
Alternating light and dark wood boards creates an eye-catching striped floor in this cozy boy's bedroom. The varying boards are set in the middle of the space to create an area rug effect that adds a striking pattern to the simple amber-colored room.
Never Goes Out of Style
A classic black-and-white harlequin floor grounds this functional mudroom. The painted design creates distinction between the mudroom and rest of the home, as well as adds striking contrast to the room.
Tiles With a Twist
This den doubles as a laundry room and an entryway from the backyard so durable floors were a must. Though it may look like whitewashed wood, the flooring is actually easy-to-clean, hard-wearing tile. Laid in an interesting arrangement, the tile goes from just durable flooring to a true standout.
For the Color Lover
So long, neutral floors. Tile is a clever way to bring tons of color underfoot. Blocks of mosaic tiles look like bricks to create a patchwork effect in this peacock-inspired kitchen.
