Upgrade Your Room With These Fancy Floor Finishes

From paint color to foiled ceilings, there are countless ways to boost the feng shui in your space. But dull, dingy, or boring floors can detract from all the work you put into curating your furniture, artwork, and accessories. Upgrade your space with these fancy floor finishes.

 

Hardwood

If you’re lucky enough to have original hardwood floors in your home, don’t take them for granted. Or worse, cover them with carpet. The beauty and warmth of natural wood are unparalleled by other flooring types. But giving your hardwood floor the right finish is crucial to preserving its life and creating a specific aesthetic.

 

Gloss Hardwood Floors

The high gloss, wet-to-the-touch hardwood finish of yesteryear has its place in modern design. Dimly lit rooms benefit from glossy hardwood that reflects stray light and brightens the space. Glossy floors can be a statement in a grand entryway or dining room.

 

Gloss on dark hardwood floors like hickory and cherry creates a romantic feel perfect for a bedroom. Of course, there are varying levels of gloss floor finishes from satin to high gloss.

 

Matte Hardwood Floors

Sometimes an understated matte hardwood finish can be an equally dramatic design choice. Matte finishes are common in Scandinavian, minimalist design (think IKEA). There’s a bright, airiness that a matte hardwood floor brings to a room. It doesn’t draw too much attention and it celebrates wood in its natural form.

 

Not to mention, a matte finish created with a natural oil finish is both environmentally friendly and shows fewer dings and scratches than its high gloss counterpart.

 

Painted Hardwood Floors

If you appreciate your hardwood floors for their texture but not their look, consider paint. Painted hardwood floors can be a statement piece in any space and is an easy fix for heavily soiled or worn areas.

 

White painted hardwood floors can be dinner party elegant or farmhouse chic depending on how the room is styled.

 

Concrete

Commercial-turned-residential spaces may present a homeowner with a new challenge: concrete flooring. It may seem that with concrete, what you see if what you get. In actuality, there are quite a few ways you can finish a concrete floor to give it a unique flair.

 

Acid Stained Concrete Floors

Acid stained concrete floors are unmistakably unique and insanely durable. Using an acid stain creates rich, earthy oranges, yellows, blues, and greens. The marbled effect gives a space an elegant, but natural vibe. It’s pretty common with gearheads and car collectors that want to give their garage an upgrade.

 

Quartz Sand Epoxy Concrete Floors

Quartz sand epoxy is another extremely durable and chemical-resistant finish for garage floors. But some owners bring the look inside mudrooms, kitchens, and bathrooms. You can also add a pop of color with flakes.

 

Resin

You can cast almost anything in resin. As a flooring material, it’s durable and glossy. From woodcuts to pennies to candy to legos the options with resin are endless. It’s better to let these resin floors speak for themselves.
