Minimalist home décor is steadily on the rise. Whether you have a new, modern home or a classic, older one, you can embrace this trend with certain remodeling, furnishing, and decorating choices. To give your Princeton home a minimal feel, look for neutral, understated colors and simple designs that make the space feel clean and open. You can even extend the minimalist style to your floors with the help of our team at Floor Coverings International® of Hillsborough. Here are some of our top picks for minimalist flooring:
Glossy, white tile is always a reliable flooring choice if you’re going for minimalist style. Marble adds a luxurious feel, even though it has a clean, simple look. It works well in kitchens, bathrooms, and entryways, and can even be used in living rooms when softened with plush area rugs.
Narrow Plank Hardwood
Though wide plank hardwood flooring has become increasingly popular, narrow plank flooring has a pleasantly clean, minimal look. By breaking up the grain pattern of the chosen hardwood, narrow planks have a more consistent, subtle appearance. For a truly minimalist look, pick a light hardwood like white oak, maple, or birch.
For the ultimate modern, minimalist floor, consider concrete. Whether it’s polished or plain, slab or tile, concrete has a utilitarian, industrial look. To make concrete floors more comfortable, strategically add area rugs in living areas. Best of all, concrete is super durable and low-maintenance.
Wood-Look Porcelain Tile
Wood-look porcelain tile is a trendy new flooring option that works well in minimalist homes. It is designed to mimic the look of hardwood, but has the feel and durability of tile. Consider using it in kitchens, bathrooms, and entryways.
Gray, White, and Black Hardwood
Hardwood floors in minimalist, gray scale color palettes have become increasingly popular. Look for gray-stained and whitewashed choices if installing new floors, or if you want to give your existing hardwoods a new look, consider painting them white, gray, or black.
