5 Types of Flooring That Can Add Character to a Home

Posted on April 13th, 2015 by

Flooring goes a long way towards adding character to a home. Updating your flooring can have a huge impact on the overall look of your space. Here are five types of Carrollton flooring that can lend charm and personality to the rooms in your house.


Tile flooring is one of the best options for people who want to get creative with their floors thanks to the variety of sizes and colors available. Small mosaic tiles can create an old world charm, oversized travertine tile makes for a modern, spacious look, and stain-resistant porcelain tiles can add character to any kitchen. Whatever you choose, tile flooring allows you to create a unique look and pattern that perfectly complements your personal style.


Pine flooring has a characteristically rustic look, thanks to its myriad of pinholes and knots. Since pine is a soft wood, it will not remain in pristine condition, but the wear builds character and is part of the attraction for those who love the look of pine flooring.


Bamboo flooring is a relatively modern material that lends itself to modern surroundings. It is typically stained in lighter colors to allow the fibrous grain pattern to shine, so it can create a light and airy look to your home. Bamboo is also a sustainable and long-lasting material.


Cork is another natural and renewable material that is gaining popularity as a flooring material. It is durable, anti-microbial, fire-resistant, and comfortable underfoot. It can be found in a wide range of colors and grains, and can be laid out with a seamless look or in a custom pattern using multiple colors.


Terrazzo is a solid surface material comprised of marble chips embedded into a cement base, then ground flat and sealed. Terrazzo flooring comes in a plethora of colors and patterns. Bold monochromatic colors can be used to create a modern vibe, earth tones can provide a classic appearance and a combination of colors and patterns can create a unique look reminiscent of traditional Italian mosaics.
