Are you looking for some new and unique flooring options for your home? Check out this list of artistic, eye-catching and unique flooring options from around the globe.

Roman Tile Floor

The most luxurious homes during the Golden Age of Rome boasted floors that were a fantastic work of art. Tiny colored tiles were created with meticulous care to make beautiful mosaics. Animal motifs were common, but so were geometric patterns. Some Romans also enjoyed heated floors. In this present day, you can have a mosaic floor just as the Romans, and have it heated for some extra cash, too.

Bamboo Cane Floor

Over the years, bamboo has become popular as an eco-friendly choice to hardwood. Bamboo has the same shiny, grainy and smooth appearance of a typical wooden floor and the same durability, too. However, bamboo grows faster than regular trees, which makes it a renewable source. Bamboo is easy to clean and can last for many years.

Log End Floor

Log end floor is a different twist on the standard hardwood floor. With an amazingly rustic yet sophisticated appearance, the log-end floor is made of well-crafted log pieces to bring the feeling of a traditional log cabin and a splash of high-class.A log-end floor has a very flexible design and is superbly comfortable to walk on.

Rubber Floor

If you want to think out of the ordinary in regard to floors for your kitchen, a rubber floor is a beautiful, unique flooring choice. Typically, used in playroom and gyms, rubber is springy underfoot and soft, so it is excellent for standing for an extended period, such as when cooking or washing the dishes. A rubber floor is durable and requires low maintenance. It will provide a fresh and unique look for homeowners who want something different.

Penny Floor

A fresh and exciting trend is known as a penny floor aka copper floor. Penny floor is just as the name implies: a layer of pennies makes up this unique floor, held firmly into place with a sealant. Even though it takes a considerable amount of time to lay down all the pennies, it is surprisingly affordable. If you want stylish flooring for your home without spending too much, the penny floor is a great choice.

When renovating your home, you should consider choosing a unique flooring option as it can boost the value and appeal of your home. Not sure what to pick? Ask your real estate agent what flooring types are the best return on investment in your market.

Do the walls of your home ever feel bland and uninviting? What you need for your home is to add depth to the walls. Everything from the colors of the walls to what you place on them helps to give your rooms a feeling of sophisticated complexity. 


Try Using Contrast On Your Walls


If you choose a dark color for your walls, you can use bright colors as a contrast to bring out the prominent features of the room. 


Use Texture On Your Walls


You don’t have to rely on paint to color your walls. It’s a good idea for you to use some tapestry or cloth and hang it on the walls to help add texture and depth to a room.


Reflect On The Room


Using mirrors can help to make any room appear bigger. Mirrors are deceiving in a way, but when placed strategically, they can really add a lot to a room. Allowing for reflections in the room also adds depth and a larger feeling to the space, 


Don‘t Make A Space Too Busy


Avoid using a lot of colors in a room. While contrasting colors add something special to a space, bright, mismatched colors will only make you dizzy. 


Make Use Of Tile


Particularly in kitchens and bathrooms, tile can help to add some depth to the space. Your kitchen can be painted a lovely color and finding tiles to match for a backsplash can really help the room to stand out. Even the color grout that you use can help add complexity to a room. If you have brick, wood, or any kind of stone present in a room, be sure to help those features stand out. The best way to approach design sometimes is to take what you see in nature and bring it into your space. From earth tones to highlighting the natural features in your home, you can really make your home feel well-rounded from the inside out. 


Try Painting The Walls Different Colors


There’s no rule that says you need to paint a room all one color. Often, you can add a lot to a room just by having that one accent wall. Putting the piece of furniture that will be the focal point of the room on the accent wall can really bring out the features of the room. If your color scheme is leaning towards blues and whites, for example, paint each wall white except for one. Choose an alluring shade of blue for the accent wall. Be sure that your furniture matches with whatever wall color scheme that you choose as well.                 

Whether you’re recreating a room completely, or simply re-purposing what you have, it’s easy to make your design work for you and provide complexity and depth.

Attending an open house should be a fun, exciting experience. An open house enables you to view a residence and determine whether a home is right for you. As such, if you know what to expect from an open house, you can plan ahead and maximize the value of this event.

Preparing for an open house can be simple. Now, let's take a look at three tips to help you get ready to attend an open house.

1. Review a Home Listing

A home listing enables you to learn about a house's age, condition and other factors. Thus, you'll want to review a home listing closely to ensure it is worth your time to visit an open house.

If a home listing grabs your attention, it may be beneficial to attend an open house. That way, you can get an up-close look at a residence.

On the other hand, if a home listing fails to garner your interest, you may want to consider other residences. Because if you attend an open house for a residence that falls short of your expectations, you risk wasting precious time and resources.

2. Put Together a List of Questions

When it comes to preparing for an open house, it often helps to put together a list of questions about a residence. By doing so, you can ask pertinent questions about a home and gain the insights you need to decide whether to submit an offer.

There is no such thing as a "bad" question to ask during an open house. Therefore, you should be unafraid to ask any questions about a house when you attend this event.

Remember, the more information that you have about a home, the more likely it becomes that you can make the best-possible decision about a residence. If you ask plenty of questions during an open house, you can obtain home insights that you otherwise may struggle to receive elsewhere.

3. Consult with a Real Estate Agent

An open house may prove to be a daunting experience, particularly for those who are pursuing a home for the first time. Luckily, real estate agents are available who can help you plan ahead for any open house, at any time.

With an expert real estate agent at your side, you can get the support you need to succeed during the homebuying journey. In fact, this housing market professional will learn about your homebuying goals and ensure you can accomplish them in no time at all.

Typically, a real estate agent will keep you informed about open houses in your city or town. This housing market professional is happy to attend open houses with you and offer homebuying insights and recommendations as well.

If you want to get the most out of the homebuying journey, it pays to hire an expert real estate agent. Reach out to a local real estate agent today, and you can hire a housing market professional to guide you along the homebuying journey.
