18 Nov Large Room Flooring Ideas
Just as small rooms can be a problem when choosing a floor covering, larger rooms come with their own set of difficulties. Some individuals want their large rooms to look cozier or even bigger in some instances. Whether individuals want to update or create a whole new look, there’s a solution for everyone.
The colors and even the way the flooring is installed can create a specific aesthetic perception ranging from rustic to elegant. Individuals can select from multiple types of materials to meet their personal preferences and budgets encompassing hardwood, luxury vinyl, carpet, laminate, and porcelain and marble tile.
By far the most popular flooring option is hardwood flooring due to its appearance and ability to increase resale value. It can be installed – long ways, cross ways, on an angle, or in specific patterns such as basketweave – that can make a large room look smaller or even large if desired. Darker colors create an illusion of greater spaciousness.
Nothing screams elegance like a reclaimed wood floor. It conveys a sense of warmth and personality, but without appearing too formal. The wood is highly sought and typically comes with a hefty price tag. However, reclaimed wood flooring can be less expensive than the installation of a completely new floor.
As a bonus, individuals can take advantage of high-end woods such as hickory and black walnut, species that are rare or have nearly become extinct including American elm and heart pine, or American chestnut that’s classified as technically extinct.
Area rugs add warmth, decorative interest and comfort. They’re a form of artwork in themselves and help to define specific spaces. An area rug is handy for delineating an area for smaller, intimate gatherings that are conducive for conversations, and for visiting with family or friends. They can also be installed in ways to make big rooms appear even larger.
Colors and Patterns
Lighter colors make rooms look larger and dark shades create the illusion of being smaller. Individuals can choose from a wealth of patterns, but it’s essential that the pattern is scaled to the size of the room. The best solution when patterns are desired is to consult with a flooring specialist. Individuals should bear in mind that the number of furnishings in any room will also have an impact on the overall appearance.
