To create the look and feel of any room, you must begin with the floor. A beautifully finished hardwood floor adds charm and warmth – and the range of options available for hardwood floors today can transform a room. With choices from softer natural to cool gray and darker charcoal, you can find the perfect shade for your custom built home. The floor sets the tone for the room’s appearance. Don’t know where to start? Here are a few tips for your custom home floor plan.
Pick an Overall Look for Your Custom Home Floor Plan
To help with your custom home floor plan, consider the overall feel of the room. Each design element – the floor stain, wall color, finish, furnishings, and accents – should all work in harmony to enhance the mood and aesthetic. Do you want a softer floral look? Modern and sleek? Airy and cool? The color palette and shine of your hardwood finish will become the base for the feeling you’re trying to arouse.
Get Some Inspiration
There is no shortage of resources to inspire your custom home floor plan. From Pinterest to art galleries, nature, and your trusted builders from Robin Ford, look for essential colors, textures, and items to inspire your room design. Next, get inspired by some flooring options. Soft natural tones work very well with blues and whites for a comforting, peaceful environment. This look complements furnishing with clean and simple lines. Rich and vivid tones create a sense of urban luxury, in colors from walnut to charcoal to white. Consider what works best for your own custom home floor plan.
Understand the Process
Research the ideal tools and products for finishing your hardwood floor. The process can be pleasant, or you could be left with a smelly, dusty mess. Next comes the stain, and possibly sealer, all depending on the look you are trying to achieve. Know that you’re able to create custom colors, so take some time to pick the right shade. Then select your finish for your custom home floor plan. Don’t be afraid to ask for help from Robin Ford Builders during this entire process. Have fun with it too. It’s your custom home!
