3 Types Of Traditional Flooring To Add To Your Interior Design

by Janet Robinson

Traditional interior design style is coming back in a huge way. With popular designers taking over the interior design world, more and more people are flocking to traditional design styles. One of the most important decisions homeowners have to make when they are remodeling a home is the flooring. With so many different flooring options out there, it can be a little bit overwhelming to decide on a traditional interior flooring design. 

1. Checkerboard Flooring

A really popular type of traditional flooring that is coming back in style is checkerboard flooring. Whether you do something like black and white, grey and white, or even blue and white, checkerboard flooring can add a fun design style to virtually any space in your home. Popular places to incorporate checkerboard flooring into your home include the mudroom, bathroom, entryway, kitchen, or even a sunroom. 

2. Herringbone Wood Flooring

If you have ever been to Paris or London, then you know that herringbone wood flooring was very popular in past centuries. To help add this traditional vibe to your home, you can incorporate a herringbone inlay throughout the interior of your home. Just make sure that it is being laid with solid wood flooring so that it looks like older flooring. If you don't want to commit to having this sort of pattern throughout your entire home, consider just adding it to the entryway or main room of your home, and then use a traditional wood layout throughout the rest of your home.

3. Marble Flooring

Marble flooring is another traditional style of interior flooring that can really up your interior flooring game. The tricky thing about marble flooring is that because it can be a bit porous, it may stain easily if it's a light color, which means that you may not want to put it in high traffic areas like a mudroom or kitchen. You can, however, put it in places like a master bathroom where kids and visitors are less likely to be. 

Traditional style interior flooring can really elevate your interior space and add that vibe that you are going for. If you want to learn a little bit more about traditional interior design style or interior flooring in general, reach out to an interior design company or flooring supplier in your area today and they can go over all of these flooring options to help you make a decision.
