Highlighting Some Design Elements for Your Wood Floors

Varnish brush

Wood floors are a classic, sophisticated addition to any home—whether craftsman, modern, or somewhere in between. If you are thinking about adding hardwood floors to your home, consider the many ways that you can customize your wood floors.

A border, for instance, can be added to the flooring to create contrast and frame a particular area of the room. Medallions are another common design element, and can be added to an existing wood floor without much fuss. Hand distressing is popular for homeowners that want to create an antique look, and is achieved quite easily with wire brushes, chisels, ice picks, grinders, planes, and awls. Painted and stained woods, exotic woods, and mixed woods are also great design elements if you want to create a beautiful, personalized wood floor.
