Incorporating natural building materials in your home is a great way to bring a touch of the Colorado outdoors in. If you need rustic flooring inspiration for your Denver home, here are some ideas from our team at Floor Coverings International Denver South.
Hardwood flooring is one of the most appealing options available. It’s a beautiful, natural material, and it has wide appeal. Hardwood consistently has a high resale value and, when properly maintained, it can last generations in your home.
Hardwood flooring comes in a wide variety of shades and styles. For a casual, rustic look, consider a wood with a prominent grain, such as hickory, pine or even oak. Modern homeowners may prefer a subtler wood, such as maple. Hardwood can be treated and stained to match any home style and décor.
Natural stone tile can be a big investment, but even a little will go a long way to bringing the feel of nature home. Slate tile is a popular option for Denver homeowners. It comes in a wide array of color variations, and it is naturally slip resistant, making it perfect for kitchens, bathrooms, and even outdoor spaces.
Marble and travertine tile are also beautiful options with an additional touch of sophistication. The neutral color tones and soft finish of these luxury stones are reminiscent of the French or Italian countryside.
Natural Fiber Carpet
If you are committed to natural materials but looking for a softer floor covering, there are many options available in natural fiber carpets. Wool is the most popular of these. It comes at a fairly high price point, but it a soft, naturally stain-resistant option that will add value and comfort to any room in the home.
Seagrass, sisal and jute are also popular natural carpet fibers. More commonly found as areas rugs than wall-to-wall carpets, these tough plant fiber floor coverings are great options for high-traffic areas. Sisal is also highly absorbent. While that’s not an ideal attribute for stain-resistance, it does accept dye very well and can be a great option to express style and personality. Seagrass carpet, on the other hand, is moisture-resistant and will fade from a greenish tone to khaki-colored hue over time.
