Unusual Flooring Types

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

This blog isn’t going to be about window blinds or window shades. Today will be all about flooring. We found these unusual flooring types so different, we wanted to display them here.

Pebbles
Cemented pebbles and stones are a great fit for bathrooms or hallways. Giving you the feel of standing on a riverbed, it puts you right into nature’s arms. Unusual for sure, different and unique is what you create.

Coins

The choices are copper or silver. This isn’t truly a flooring type you can order, it is basically coins scattered and sealed in an area of your liking. Also here, bathrooms are a great place for this. Very eclectic and modern, it will certainly be an eye catcher that draws attention.

Log Flooring

This flooring is a must look at for all nature lovers. Logs placed evenly and sealed create warmth and coziness. A great choice for living areas, it works well in rooms that have lots of light, windows and mirrors.

Wood and Tile

Here two flooring styles are mixed and could be a great solution for a dining area. Worried about the wooden floor and spills? Simply change to tile in an area to separate itself from the rest. This area stands out and creates an island in the middle of a room. Creative for sure!

Laminate

We aren’t thinking of the usual laminate, but how about an aqua or turquoise color for a kitchen or sitting area? Giving it country flair and working well with white furniture pieces it certainly fits into the category of unusual.

Adding a piece of deco or art doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. Instead of running to the art gallery or breaking your bank, how about a fabric covered canvas? With a few simple steps you can create a real eye catcher and have the perfect color coordinated decor piece. Here is how you do it:

  1. First you want to decide what your color(s) should be. Are you picking up on other accents like pillows, custom window shades, or comforter set or are you adding new color?
  2. Then it is off to the store to get a nice size blank canvas that will fit your wall space. You also want to now find the right piece of fabric that will fit in size and look the canvas. It can have a linen texture, felt texture, sheen or whatever works for you.
  3. Now you want to cover the canvas. Lay the material right side down and place the canvas according to your pattern or image. Cut off excess fabric and leave about 2” overlap around the canvas.
  4. Now pull the fabric back tightly and tape it with strong tape or masking tape and put everything in position where it can be stapled down.
  5. In this step you want to staple the fabric to the wooden frame on back. It is best to staple opposing sides after start, to avoid that the material will get pull out of shape.
  6. Lastly a hook needs to be nailed or taped to the back of the canvas. And voila! A beautiful, one of a kind deco piece has been created. Hang & Enjoy!!
