Tread on Me

Easily overlooked but vitally important to the overall look of a well-designed home, the floor is a canvas too often left blank. These suggestions for wood flooring and decorative rugs can make all the visual difference.

ONE OF THE HIGHEST-IMPACT DECISIONS TO MAKE in your interior décor is selecting the flooring. Aside from paint, the floor is the biggest piece of the visual puzzle in most homes, and it is easy to become overwhelmed with the dazzling array of options available today. Engineered or solid hardwood, ceramic or porcelain tile, polished concrete or stone? So many tempting choices!

Wood flooring is classic, and updating the vibe of this semi-permanent part of a room can be easily accomplished by switching out the rugs when the inclination for a change strikes. We’ve paired some of our favorites here!
