The style of a traditional home is quickly coming back in fashion in the interior design world. The key to successfully achieving the traditional look is the floor. Flooring can completely change the look of a room; it can make the most modern of houses look traditional depending on the choices made. Below, we’ve shared our top flooring ideas to achieve the look of a traditional home in your property.

Wood Flooring

If there’s one type of flooring that makes us think of a traditional home, it’s wood flooring. The textures and warm tones really give an old, rustic feel of a traditional country home. We’d recommend going for a darker colour of wood to get the rustic look that traditional interiors have. Dark wood can also make your home look very high class and prestige as many manor houses opt for this type of flooring.

If you want to add warmth and comfort when going for the traditional look, carpet will be your best bet. Carpet is the perfect choice in living areas of a home where you want to feel cosy and comfortable. If you’re going for the traditional “shabby chic” look, opt for a soft, cream carpet. Or, if you’re wanting the traditional country look, find a carpet with a lively pattern on it.

Laminate Flooring

For a flooring choice that is perfect all rooms of the house, take a look at laminate flooring. If low maintenance is one of your priorities, this could be the choice for you! Laminate flooring is very easy to maintain, which is one of the reasons it’s a great choice for rooms such as kitchens and bathrooms. It’s fantastic for achieving a style similar to wood flooring but at a lower cost.
