Creative Flooring Ideas
Wood Puzzle Flooring
If you love wood, but do not want conventional wooden flooring, this idea is perfect for you. This flooring system is fun to put together. It can mix and match the different hardwood puzzle pieces to create your own unique design. In fact, these are easier to assemble as compared to traditional wood floors. They come in a range of natural shades and are really beautiful. Try this idea in your own bedroom and enjoy the personal touch you have given to your own room.
A Belted Floor
This is a real wacky idea and is perfect for you if you are an eco-friendly person. This flooring is made from reclaimed leather belts that have been recycled. The used belts are recycled and honed to the same thickness. They are then glued into panels which are used to cover the floors. Isn’t it so cool!
Concrete is hard and appears dull. If you have concrete flooring in your backyard, terrace or another area of your home, this idea will help break the monotony. Use some paints to change the dull look. Stencilled designs and motifs can be painted on the concrete floor. It will look so different and inviting that you will forget it’s that same dull, old concrete floor.
Modular Wood Flooring
This is a good flooring idea if you need to move from one room to another often. They are completely portable and do not turn out expensive as only a few panels are required. Get these cardboard sandwich panelled tiles and use them in the space you use most often for reading or browsing on your computer. These are smooth, cushioned and very comfortable. The best part is that it can be assembled very easily and moved anywhere. Just remove the hooks and move it to a new position.
Now, this is a real hi-tech flooring idea. It is based on the flow of the room; the arrangement of furniture and how people move around it. A video of the room is taken which helps decide on the pattern to be used on the flooring. This pattern is printed out and the free-flowing design is incorporated on the floor of the particular room. It’s supposed to create balance and harmony in the room. Amazing, isn’t it!
This is another modern flooring system. The room flooring is made of an interactive surface. As a person walks about, the footprints left behind glow for almost a minute! The lightfader floor actually contains a fluid inside which gets displaced due to the pressure applied each time the person steps on it. The look is constantly changing all the time. What a creative flooring idea!
