Rare Flooring for a One-of-a-kind Look

Posted by:

Are you looking for a unique, one-of-a-kind flooring material for a special room in your home? Instead of covering up the floor with a carpet, here are some unique, rare flooring options that will help you get that special look.

Rare Hardwoods

Hardwood flooring is increasingly taking the route of engineered wood or vinyl lookalikes. If you want a one-of-a-kind look for your special room, why not consider sticking with true hardwoods and selecting a rare or infrequently used type of wood? Visit your local flooring specialty store in Maryland and see what types of unique hardwood flooring they offer and pick a style that matches your room.

Reclaimed Hardwood Flooring

Another, similar idea to the one above would be to go with reclaimed hardwood floors. Reclaimed hardwood flooring is professionally sourced and removed from historic American buildings and then re-purposed to use as floor boards. With this method, not only are you reducing the environmental impact of installing hardwood, you will also have a one-of-a-kind look—and story to tell—with your new floor!

Real Stone Flooring

Stone is an age-old flooring option that brings a feeling of luxury to any room it is used in. While a stone floor may not seem like a ground-breaking option when it comes to unique flooring, the truth is that stone isn’t being used in homes as often as less-expensive imitations are. Talk with your Maryland flooring store about their stone floor options, and be sure to consider our next tip when figuring out how best to install the stone floors.

Tile Rugs

Tile is a great flooring option on its own, but it looks immaculate when lain to create a unique pattern in the floor. After you’ve chosen the type of stone floor you would like for your special room, be sure to discuss options of how the stone can be laid out to include a “tile rug” in the center. This type of decorative floor faux-rug is sure to set your room apart.
