Instead of the traditional carpet or wood flooring, are you ready to try something new in your home decor? Ready to give up on carpet and embrace a new look? How about a white floor? Or a black floor? What would that do to your space? Let’s explore some possibilities…….
White Floor Ideas
Shiny white floors are pretty to look at but I worry about scuff marks and those pet hair dust bunnies that would show up everywhere!
Create an all white shell to make the room as visually large as it can possibly be. However, is the illusion of space worth the starkness? Even with the use of the warm colors, the room feels a little chilly.
White polished marble makes for a very modern floor – you could ice skate on that shine!
Black Floor Ideas
You can really up the drama with the use of the crisp contrast between black floors and white walls. Is it too harsh? What could you do to warm the space a little?
Some color on the ceiling and texture on the walls helps relieve the starkness of the contrasting floor and walls.
A simple red, white, and black color scheme is effective.
Does black flooring in a bedroom feel cozy or too stark?
