Tuesday Tips – Flooring


I didn’t really know what to call today’s Tuesday Tips, but I was instantly drawn to this hall and the effect the flooring has. In these wonderful before and after photos you can see how much nicer it looks to use only one type of flooring. By changing the floor and creating a large opening instead of a normal door this space has been completely transformed. It appears much more spacious and you’ve got to love the light detailing along the floor and ceiling. I’m also for painting everything white, but if you’re a regular reader of my blog you’ve probably noticed that already… I do love all this light. 

It has a much better flow now, don’t you think? It also looks like a much larger and more open home than before, not to mention very trendy. There was a large budget spent here, but the idea of the continuous flooring wouldn’t necessarily be a huge expense. There are lots of good alternatives out there for all budgets.

Hope you like this little flooring tip. 
Thank you so much to Minni for giving us last Tuesday’s Tip
Have a lovely day!

    Thanks Hege.

    This is a great example of how even a very dark-stained engineered wood floor can work in a space with reduced natural light.

    The designer's use of edge lighting is inspired too.


    P.S. I think your pinterest plugin has been hacked – I'm not sure what image 2 has to do with average UK household budget?
