When deciding to redecorate your home, it is likely that you’ll begin putting together some ideas and inspiration for your new luxury house interior. Often these mood boards of ideas will include things such as colour schemes and potential accessories but, there is often one big element of the design that is overlooked, the flooring. There is no denying that whether you’re decorating a kitchen, living room, bathroom or bedroom, flooring is actually quite important.
Flooring can make such a huge difference to the overall look and feel of a room and, when creating a luxury house interior, you should ensure you’re considering your options from the outset. Of course, you want to make sure that you get the flooring right too because it is known for being quite difficult and expensive to replace. So, to help anyone attempting to choose the flooring for their home’s new luxury interior design, below are a few different things to consider.
The function of each individual room
This is undeniably one of the best ways to start narrowing down the many options that you have for flooring. For example, it goes without saying that carpet in a wetroom isn’t a good idea, so the function of the space will immediately reduce the many flooring choices. Ultimately, think carefully about how you’re going to be using a room and if this affects your flooring decision.
How big the floor space is
It can also be beneficial to consider the amount of floor space you have and also the shape of the room too. Your flooring works in a similar way to colour schemes, as lighter colours can make a room seem bigger and darker accents can add warmth. Consider the lighting in the room too as this will undoubtedly influence the choice you make.
The style of the rest of the interior design
Of course, the style you’re opting for and the trends you’re interested in will have an impact on the type of flooring that you choose too. Even when creating a luxury house interior, consider what other styles are influencing your design choices. You will want to ensure that your flooring compliments these choices and that everything works well together.
Amount of footfall through the space
It goes without saying that you will want your flooring choice to be long-lasting no matter where it is put in your home. In order to ensure this is the case, think about how much footfall a room gets. For example, it is likely your hallway flooring will get more footfall than your spare bedroom and therefore you should choose a flooring option that isn’t as affected by wear and tear.
Any individual needs and requirements
Sometimes, homeowners will have specific needs and requirements in regards to flooring. For example, if you have a puppy then it is likely that durability will be even more important to you and you will probably want something that doesn’t scratch easily. These individual needs and requirements are so important, so take some time to think about if you have any.
The amount you have to spend on flooring
As far as flooring is concerned, budget can play a huge part in the options that you have. It is well known that the price of flooring can vary quite dramatically depending on the type you’re looking at. Consider how much you can realistically spend on your flooring and then ensure that you’re only looking at options within this budget.
Deciding on the flooring for your home
By taking the time to carefully consider everything mentioned above, you can ensure that you make the very best flooring choices for each individual room in your home when designing your luxury house interior. Remember, there really isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to flooring and it isn’t uncommon to have various different types of flooring used throughout one property, so this isn’t something you need to be afraid of doing.
