Let’s be honest, I used to pay very little attention to the flooring that I would walk on everyday. But in reality, flooring sets off the entire tone of a space, whether residential or commercial. Ever since I joined the GoHaus team, I have a greater appreciation for the details of flooring from type to textures, more so than ever before.

So, here are my favorite flooring options for the season that will hopefully inspire your flooring project!

Brick

If properly maintained, brick floors can last decades. They are also fireproof. But really, I favor brick flooring not for their practicality, but more for their raw, rustic charm.

Reclaimed Wood

Talk about beautiful and eco-friendly. Reclaimed wood from old buildings will have natural distressing from years of wear and tear that we all love, and be so much more authentic.

Wood Look Tile

If you want wood floors, but in a place with high moisture, porcelain tile is the way to go. Not only will a quality porcelain tile be in plank form like real wood, but they will also have the grain and texture to mimic wood exactly. GoHaus carries a full line of porcelain and ceramic wood-look tile floors.

Mixed Media

Have two starkly different floors meet each other to add contrast and designate living spaces. This mix between checkered tile and wood plank floors create a surprisingly well balanced floor.

Unexpected Designs

This flooring was made of about 3,000 secondhand bookends. The bookworm in me is dying to know what classic titles they’ve collected.

Hand Painted

A simple paint job can turn out-of-date wood planks to crisp and contemporary flooring.

Not-So-Stone-Cold Cement

Who says that concrete is cold? Add natural wood furniture against cement floors, and you have a classy AND warm space. Plain concrete is perfect for any modern minimalist who wants something that is eco-friendly, versatile to design, easy to maintain and durable.

Optical Illusions

Patterned flooring is for the bold and adventurous, for those with a more eclectic taste. Despite being so completely out there – this square pattern is mesmerizing and works perfectly in this retro-modern kitchen.
