With so many flooring types out there, we know it can be hard to choose the right look. Often, this can feel downright overwhelming. Well, we’re here to say that you can’t go wrong with all-natural floors. All-natural flooring provides you with endless style opportunities and products to choose from, including solid hardwood, porcelain tile, wool carpet, natural stone, and so much more.

Natural Ultramodern

Ultra-modern design embraces a harmonious blend of innovation and nature, creating spaces that exude sophistication and tranquility. By incorporating natural elements, such as organic materials and textures, along with neutral color palettes and sleek lines, this design style achieves a seamless and beautiful integration of modern aesthetics and timeless beauty.

If you:

  • Enjoy sleek, clean lines.
  • Love plants and other natural elements that add greenery and life to your décor.
  • Want to have a minimalist approach that is clutter-free.
  • Prefer a neutral color palette instead of bright and bold colors.

Then, our flooring product recommendations include:

  • A white wool carpet that adds a touch of softness and coziness to your room.
  • A light beige solid hardwood floor that's sturdy enough to last your home for decades and can be refinished several times down the line.

Transitional Sustainable Flooring

Transitional design offers a captivating fusion of contemporary and traditional aesthetics, resulting in spaces that are elegant and warm. This design style seamlessly merges the best of both worlds, embracing modern elements while preserving the timeless appeal of classic design. One of the key aspects of transitional design is the use of pops of color. While the overall palette tends to be neutral and subdued, vibrant hues are strategically introduced to inject energy and personality into the space. Whether it's through bold artwork, accent furniture, or carefully selected accessories, these bursts of color add visual interest and create focal points that draw the eye.

If you:

  • Like mixing traditional and contemporary furnishings to create a unique interior.
  • Enjoy pops of color, like black and gold, because they add depth and dimension.
  • Embrace a timeless aesthetic focusing on natural light and warm and cozy details.
  • Love the look of natural materials and textiles.

Then, our flooring recommendation includes:

  • A wood-look floor with a durable and sturdy aluminum oxide finish that avoids harsh chemicals and allows for neutral colors and familiar designs, such as solid hardwood or tile, to let small, but bold accents stand out in your space.

Modern Farmhouse Hardwood Flooring

While you might be familiar with the farmhouse design style, modern farmhouse is a refreshed take on an outdated trend that infuses modern touches into old-world charm. The modern farmhouse design aesthetic captivates with its enchanting blend of contemporary sensibilities and rustic finishes. This style pays homage to the simplicity and authenticity of traditional farmhouses while incorporating modern elements, unique features, and vintage accessories to add to your collection and create spaces that are both inviting and stylish.

If you:

  • Want a comfortable, relaxed style with sophisticated modern touches, such as a neutral color scheme and sleek accents.
  • Love adding unique elements to your space, including reclaimed wood, industrial-style lighting fixtures, and wrought iron accents.
  • Prefer the look of wood and leather furniture.
  • Look to incorporate vintage accessories and décor into your space.
