If you are planning to build your own luxury home, you must have given a lot of thought to what you want installed in it. While the décor, fittings and fixtures are all-important, there is one feature that becomes the backdrop of everything else in your home – the flooring!!
Since the floors cover such a vast area, it goes without saying that you would have to choose them with care. After all, this isn’t an installation you will be replacing on a regular basis. Today, luxury home builders are going out of their way to ensure the homes they build for their clients are truly luxurious and timeless. They realise that the flooring becomes the main element that helps unify the different spaces in a home.
Types of luxury floors
Today, there are so many materials to choose from that it’s possible to make any space look unique and modern. Luxury home owners look for comfort and style; and home builders, architects and interior designers are now going out of their way to create spaces that speak volumes about their client’s preferences and likings. Luxury flooring is a style statement in its own right; these are the different options you can choose from:
This is something which never goes out of styles. Wooden floorboards are available in a range of finishes and you are sure to find something that matches your style. Many luxury homeowners use floorboards only in certain areas of their home, in order to create an accent piece.
These installations look sophisticated and classy and add to the value of your home. If you prefer more classic-looking interior spaces, you can choose flooring that has a lighter stain. If you prefer more modern-looking interiors, opt for darker floorboards. Both these finishes look luxurious. Reclaimed wood is another option that people are increasingly opting for nowadays.
Many people associate vinyl with low-cost flooring. While there are definitely low cost vinyls available, the technology and quality of materials used in making these products, has undergone a sea change and today, there is a huge range of luxury vinyl floorings that are immensely stylish.
Natural stone/tile flooring
These two materials are all-time favourites; even though there are a number of new materials in the market today, many homeowners choose to have tile floors. Mosaic tiling is an excellent option, and this finish can be used in casual living spaces that extend out onto patios and decks as well. This creates a stunning ambience and lends a very luxe appearance to the space.
Stone floors are now in vogue and these are available in a wide range- while natural stone flooring may not be used right across the house, it may be used in certain areas to create a focal point of sorts. You can opt for heated flooring and this makes tiled or natural stone floors comfortable even in the colder months.
Lush carpeting is another option and many people prefer to have wall-to-wall carpeting in their homes. You will find these are available in a variety of colours and textures and you can choose something that matches your requirements and style choice.
In most instances, homeowners opt for a mix-and-match of various flooring materials, depending on which room it is. Home builders work very closely with their clients to ensure that the overall look of the spaces is seamless and cohesive in every way. The focus is always on installing floors that are highly functional and aesthetically appealing.
