Part of the joy of designing your Lake Anna Luxury Custom Home is picking the designs, colors, and materials for every room. One area where you never want to forget are the hardwood floors. This said it was one of the first things you notice when you walk into a home. Hardwood floors will have a huge impact on shaping a mood and tone when people enter a room. It is one of the key elements of certain styles.
Luxury and beauty
The natural beauty of hardwood floors make them a symbol of luxury. Cheaper homes generally won’t have natural hardwood floors. Many of the luxury homes we design at Plum T ree do. They help our unique homes stand out above the rest.
As a luxury or upscale building element, the reputation of hardwood floors is deserved. A big reason for this, besides natural beauty, is that they are durable. They can last decades. Even after years of use they can be refinished to look like new.
Brighten the room
The lighter color woods like walnut can actually brighten a room. Mixed with white counters, walls, or cabinets they give a room an openness and cleanness. This can set the mood and tone for the whole room. They can also work together with dark molding or darker furniture to add contrast.The darker color woods add a mystique to a space. This is all personal preference
Another reason to use a mixed material is to protect the hardwood flooring from the outdoors via an outside door. It also adds an element of sophistication not possible with just one material. It also adds a unique look to the room
An added dimension to wood is to use a different type of finish or stain. This may be ideal to get that precise shade of oak or walnut that you are looking for.
Styles and designs
Another way hardwood floors can character to your new Lake Anna Home is how they help you achieve a certain style. Naturally a modernized log cabin look will have wooden beam ceilings and hardwood floor. The theme is accomplished by maximizing the effect that this ensemble brings.
The use of hardwood floor is also a way to achieve that traditional colonial style with light gloss on the wood. Paired with white walls and colonial decor, you create the mood. Again, the flooring is key. Without out, you cannot invoke the mood or feeling of a particular style
Work with interior design elements
This might be the perfect hardwood floor design for your Getaway home in the woods of Lake Anna. Rustic can add an element of earthiness. The two tone appearance of the wood adds this element into your home, even if you go with a modern design
The term distressed hardwood floors does not do the design justice. This is just the rustic wood with a little more texture in the wood. This gives an authenticity to your custom home. It is perfect if you are going for the luxury log cabin designs that mix the beauty of wilderness style homes with modern conveniences
The color of the wood sets the tone. It will invoke a mood when some walks in the room as it is one of the first things they will see. It also affects the lightness or darkness of a room. Darker woods will absorb light, making the room appear darker.
Another great option that adds style to your home is to have hardwood floors with beveled edges. This gives the floors a texture, adding a new dimension to the style.
You can also have hardwood flooring installed to fit a design pattern. The traditional style is to have straight boards. You can have them cut down to be smaller herringbone style boards that give a zig zag pattern.
