Decorating with patterns can be a little tricky, especially if the designs are on your floors. For a stylish and dramatic look, homeowners opt for pattern floors to captivate their guests’ attention and add appeal to the overall design. If you are looking to introduce this type of flooring in your own home, you will definitely want to keep reading!

How to Decorate with Patterned Floors:

Stone + Slate Patterns.

Choosing stone or slate flooring can help add elegance to space. Typically, homeowners use tiles to create a unique pattern, but the natural color within the stone/slate helps to balance out the visual interest of the pattern. If you decide to work a pattern design into your room, you can place the tile in one of the design options below:

  • Basketweave
  • Herringbone
  • Staggered Brick

Hardwood + Engineered Hardwood + Laminate + Luxury Vinyl. 

Hardwood floors and wood-like floors have always been a classic choice for homeowners. But if you are looking to spice up this traditional design, we have three recommendations:

  • Reclaimed Wood: This type of wood style uses a mixture of different wood species within the same design to create an antique-type look. We love this mixture to compliment dark neutrals within a room.
  • Different Sized Planks: Changing up the width of your planks can be another design idea for hardwood and wood-like floors. You mix in different widths to create an alluring visual.
  • Variety of Color: You can create a more custom look than the reclaimed wood by featuring two or more different wood colors within the same space. This can create clean lines and elegance within a room.

Tile.

You may be surprised to hear that checkerboard floors are back in style. This retro, diner look creates a unique twist on the traditional kitchen. If checkerboard style is not for you, there are also an array of different designs for homeowners to use including:

  • Diagonal
  • Herringbone
  • Basket-Woven
  • Windmill
  • Hopscotch
  • Cobblestone
