Tasked with the functionality of standing up to traffic while still adding an additional element of beauty to the room, the right flooring is an essential element of Iowa new home design.
Here are five beautiful flooring ideas to help inspire your custom home design plans.
A traditional classic that never goes out of style, hardwood floors are versatile enough to be used in any room. Today’s hardwood floors come in a variety of shades and stains, and are built to stand up to the heaviest of traffic areas.
From the glossy shine of modern design to the rustic lodge look, hardwood floors are warm and inviting and are a common building element for many Des Moines builders.
Once only found in high rises and lofts, painted concrete is now considered to be a luxurious staple of custom home design. Painted concrete floors are the perfect accent to a gourmet kitchen or become the sublet design element that takes an outdoor dining area from average to elegant.
Concrete staining often resembles the appearance of marble; however, it can be customized to create unique patterns or murals in a lavish master bath or Mediterranean kitchen setting.
Old world charm is instantly made modern with the addition of limestone flooring in a kitchen, dining area or entry way. The rich textures of limestone mix beautifully with stainless steel and pewter appliances.
And although they may look more rugged, they are comfortable for the barefoot, relaxed traffic of your entire family.
For the more adventurous designers, a well crafted combination of mixed flooring elements can provide spectacular results! Stone and marble can create the feeling of a spa getaway in a master bath, while a tile and stained concrete combination in an entry becomes a warm welcome for your guests.
Today’s flooring materials are not only beautiful, but they are designed to withstand the activities of today’s modern lifestyle.
