Ever wondered if the ground that you walk on could play a significant role in the interiors of a place? You probably didn’t even notice the tiles, stone, or the flooring of a room, but a designer will always tell you it can uplift the whole ambience of the space.
The three things to keep in mind first when designing floors always are
Make sure the patterns and design on your flooring is in proportion to your room. Remember, smaller patterns can make your room look larger, so there lies your cue for designing petite homes and flats for urban settings.
There are various types of textures for flooring out there. Knowing what your client wants and each of their pros and cons is absolutely necessary!

- Relatively less expensive than the others, this has a composed, sophisticated look to it and its neutral presence complements almost any theme and design.
- However, it is easily susceptible to damage from water and humidity and its maintenance takes a lot of effort
Tiles provide the buyer with a wide range of choice, in terms of price, design, theme, colours and size. It almost always will fit into your budget, however tight or opulent it may be! It even needs minimum maintenance.
The one downside to it is that it is very expensive and difficult to replace, so if you’re someone who likes to change their interior decor and styles with changing trends you may want to reconsider this.
