When it comes to deciding what to use when you want to install a wooden floor, there are many choices available today. Much of your choice will depend, of course, on what you personally prefer, and the use you expect to get out of your new floor.
For a home, a great choice is of course, the traditional solid wood floor. This may be one of many different tree species. All are good, so in the long run, your choice as to color and beauty of the grains in the unfinished wood will play an important role it your selection. Unfinished wood allows the buyer to see exactly what is going to go on the floor, and it may be used in almost any situation. Having the installed floor professionally finished is extremely important, because "fixing" a badly finished floor can be not only difficult, but very frustrating and time-consuming.
Oak, Ash, Walnut and maple are popular woods for flooring, but many other options are available as well.
Your solid wood floor will last for many years and if it becomes a bit dull over the years, it may easily be sanded and refinished. This may be done many times over the floor's lengthy lifespan.
Another popular choice today is engineered wood. This too is real wood, but thin layers of wood are bonded together to form a solid length of wood. Advantages of engineered wood are that unlike the solid wood floor mentioned above, they do not warp or expand or shrink. They hold their finish and shape for a long time, and actually, they may often be sanded once or twice, if necessary.
The color of your floor is going to be extremely important because it has to go well with your home furnishings, so it is wise to consider this carefully before reaching a decision. Many vendors will help you decide on the best choice, not only in wood, but in its finish so you'll be happy with your new floor for many years to come.
When choosing wood flooring for an office or other high traffic area, an engineered wood floor may be a better choice because it is less liable to damage from liquids and, if necessary, some of the flooring may be easier and cheaper to replace.
Again, the choice is up to you and it is a major decision. Do your homework, consult with the experts at building supply venues and/or wood flooring dealers. They are there to help and want you to be happy with your new floors.
These days people incorporate colors into their furniture and home decor. It is very similar to how one would do their wardrobe. But just as with a wardrobe, some colors and/or patterns are very hard to pull off. Here are some modern furniture ideas.
The kitchen is more a functional room than one to be decorated. However, this does not mean that it should not look good as well. Stick to stainless steel appliances when possible. Terra cotta floors will go very well with this. The glow from this will look good on cloudy days; even the worst ones. Wallpaper accents are back in these days; they are not just for ancient houses anymore.
Another thing that makes furniture design modern in any room of the house is: bright lighting. With recent inventions such as the Philips Hue and Philips Hue Bloom accomplishing this is very easy. If you are unfamiliar, the Philips Hue is a lighting system that is controlled by wifi and your smartphone or tablet. With the click of a button the color of the light can be changed.
Hopefully these modern furniture ideas were helpful.
Are you sick of white walls but scared your home will look like it is out of the 50s? Let's take a look at what is in now for the 2016 Home Interior Color Trends. The housing crisis and ongoing wars have inspired people to make their house the equivalent of comfort food; comfort in this case meaning color.
There has been a big surge in bright colors: such as dark red to violet to bright yellow. An exception to this is expensive furniture. For that, people are still sticking with neutral colors ranging from grey to tan; white would still be included, but I for one, am not a fan of it because of how easily it gets dirty.
That is probably why brown is still the color of choice for furniture. It has evolved from the deep dark brown to a lighter brown; however. Picture a tan instead of the dark black brown. In the future gray might overtake brown as the neutral color of choice.
