We think you’ll absolutely love these suggestions! If you think standard or conservative flooring designs are beautiful, but don’t feel quite like they match your personality, you’re sure to find something intriguing on this list.

  1. Using tape to outline a faux rug on a solid color floor. Say what? Yes, we know it sounds odd but people are doing it and loving it. Talk about versatility! You can pull it up and redesign as often as you like. If you’re not very concerned about versatility but you love this idea, go ahead and use paint instead of tape.

  2. Tinted wood floors. These are far more subtle than painted wood but still provide you with the opportunity to blend in a little color. Indigo, for example is a beautiful tint on a floor and it hides dirt really well.

  3. Polished cement floors. So chic and understated. Looks good in many different environments, such as a city loft or rustic kitchen.

  4. Floral floor tile designs. This is adorable in any room that is very feminine or botanical. To achieve, mix and match hexagonal tiles to create a pattern that looks like you have big beautiful flowers all over the floor.

  5. Weathered wide plank floors. These have tons of character because of their age and size. Perfect in masculine settings or country homes.

  6. Patterned wood floors. Accomplished by using planks all one color, and the staining them in a pattern. Similar to the way tile floors mix tiles to create shapes. So, staining sections of the wood in the shape of multiple squares for example. You can also do stenciled wood floors using a stencil and contrasting color finish.

  7. Antique tiles from around the world. This would require you to be very good at scavenger hunts in order to compile a collection of coordinating tiles large enough to cover a floor. But it sure looks amazing when it’s done.

  8. High gloss wood. This is very glamorous, but also tricky to maintain. So don’t go for this idea unless you are a neat freak!
