Homeowners love having details in their home which make them stand out from the crowd. Whether that means unique, colorful decorations hanging on the walls or a vivacious garden outside, these details provide character and personality to a home. A new hardwood flooring project is another perfect opportunity to add another touch of character to your home by going with a unique design that catches the eye! What kinds of hardwood floor designs should you choose for maximum impact? Here are three to consider.
Chevron patterns use a series of angled cuts in order to make a consistent V pattern on a hardwood floor. This pattern is then repeated to create a unique 3D effect. Not only does it catch the eye, but it also makes small rooms appear larger and is structurally sound. This is an ideal floor design for any homeowners who are looking to make a statement with their choice in pattern.
The herringbone pattern looks similar enough to the chevron pattern that it can be hard to tell the two apart. The big difference that sets these two apart is that there are no angled cuts – the square edges fit in together to create a symmetrical zig-zag pattern. Herringbone patterns tend to involve many smaller boards, so this pattern is best suited for a larger room where it can shine.
Chevron and herringbone patterns are great for those wanting to make a bold statement in their hardwood flooring, but if you’re looking for something a little more subtle, consider the diagonal pattern. Instead of installing the boards in a clean horizontal pattern as is typical of a hardwood floor, the flooring installation experts lay the boards at a 45-degree angle. This pattern draws attention to the corners of the room and adds interest without overpowering the eye. If you want to focus attention on other parts of your room, diagonal may be the best of the hardwood floor designs for your home!
