Design Ideas | April 1, 2014

When it comes to interior design for your home, your flooring options are abundant. Mixing flooring materials such as hardwood floors and ceramic tiles is a hot trend right now. For those daring to be different, mixing up hardwood floors and ceramic tiles in various sizes, shapes and colours can help them to create a unique, vibrant and interesting personality for their rooms.

This article provides amazing inspiration when it comes to mixing and matching different flooring materials. However, before you embark on your next home renovation project, make sure to consider the following general guidelines:
1. Stick to the combinations that work. Some of our favourites include: hardwood floors and ceramic tiles, hardwood and marble tiles as well as ceramic and glass tiles. Mixing different types of hardwood tones and textures also works quite well.
2. Think outside the box. Let your imagination go wild and design a floor pattern that will simply wow your guests.
3. Make sure that your floors are properly levelled and to choose materials that are the same thickness.
4. Ensure that a protective coating and moisture sealant is given to both flooring surfaces.
