The importance of floors in interior design

Many times the floor is not given the importance it deserves when one considers the definition of the interior design of a floor. Often, we think more about other elements that go on top of it, including what to put on the walls. We take it as something given that largely determines all the rest. If we think about it well, it is a large surface that impacts on the visual perspective of space, sensory reach and conditions the whole. Therefore, your good choice is of vital importance for the success of the project.

Any pavement should comply with some characteristics appropriate to the use it will have, as well as with an aesthetic purpose in line with the interior design proposal. All this, taking into account the preferences of the client or end user. As is evident, a change of pavement is not a superfluous, simple or economic performance. It implies a cost, as well as a considerable transfer for any space. It is not something that we can renew at our whim, so it is better to make a decision well weighed, thinking about its validity over the years.

Certain pavements accept a variety of styles that make our decision not so dramatic as a choice of options. Although, as we have advanced, by surface and impact on the sensations of its users, its impact is of great importance in the whole. That is why we should take into account different aspects such as its resistance, durability, material, insulation, format or tonality.

Wooden floors: synonym of comfort and home

The material that is being imposed on all houses is wood. The wooden floors adapt to all styles and exist in many shades. Natural wood would be optimal, although for economic reasons or if we prefer not to observe less wear, we have laminate or synthetic options that achieve a good result with greater strength and less care. The choice of material and tonality will be decisive for its better versatility with the different elements. Often in our projects, we use the same parquet as the wood that serves for the envelope of a table or customize a pendant lamp, getting to maximize the harmony of materials.

Porcelain flooring: resistance and functionality

If a type of pavement has experienced an exponential growth in sales, as well as in formats and finishes this is the porcelain floor. The technology applied to a traditional type of production has resulted in very light, resistant formats and in many measures, some of up to 3 meters in length that reduce the number of joints giving a very spectacular appearance in large spaces. If the wood will be the protagonist of the furniture of our house, it is a perfect option for the pavement in order not to condition contrasts of different woods and not saturate textures. On the other hand, its conditions make it a suitable material for professional spaces with a high pass of people. The great variety of finishes and its high similarity of the finish with natural materials allow us to place them as one of the alternatives to take more into account.

Textile floors: for tight budgets

The carpet has never had a good press in our latitudes. The good temperatures do not make it a very necessary alternative in the residential area, although for reasons of practicality and ease of renovation they have a great presence in many professional spaces, such as hotels or offices. Whether in rolls or tiles, the materials used have improved greatly in terms of strength, ease of cleaning and hypoallergenic qualities. When you want to print a new air to the floor, but do not have much budget and do not want to do many works, the best option to change the floor is the installation of carpets and carpets. There are carpets and carpets in different textures, colors and patterns to fit any type of style.

Natural stone floors: a range in reinvention

Tile floors made of artificial materials have displaced the floors of natural materials of a certain nobility, such as marble, as their resistance and appearance are a strong competition. On the other hand, there are certain options such as rasilla tiles in rustic environments or new terrazzo options with bright colors that are being reintroduced in the current proposals with a lot of impact.

Cements and concrete: booming industrial look

Finally, we highlight options more typical of the industrial field that we increasingly find in the residential area. They can already be more refined options such as microcement pavements, which besides being an economic alternative to coating that allows the existing flooring to be maintained on many occasions, allows us to add color and even water to certain pavements, offering a very remarkable aesthetic impact. For large open spaces, polished concrete is a very disruptive option that will be increasingly common either by taking advantage of the existing one or by pouring new pavement.

Never better said, the floor is the basis of any interior design proposal for both a home and a professional space. Its impact will be decisive in the outcome of the proposal. If we have to put it new, your choice will serve as the basis for the rest of the proposal, so it is very important to start from a global vision. If, on the contrary, we start from a pre-existing pavement and we want to validate its validity, we will have to take into account to what extent it will serve us both for the type of practices and aesthetic purposes of the space.
