The floor usually isn't the design element that first grabs your attention in a kitchen, but these rooms are the exception. Bold, busy patterned floors mix with a variety of decor styles in these examples. What they all have in common? They totally steal the show!
Shown above: Bold blue and white floors grab your attention the moment you walk into the kitchen of Anne & Steve's Relaxed, Eclectic & Casual Home in Cape Town. An impressive feat, considering how gorgeous the rest of the room is!
The kitchen in Allen & Nate's Cool Combination of Styles in LA features simple wood cabinets and neutral paint colors, but the bold blue and cream patterned floor really makes the space.
Who says gorgeous patterned kitchen floors have to come with a huge price tag? You can use common vinyl floor tiles in unique colors to create an affordable and interesting room. The example above seen in Erin's Eclectic Mystic Home & Traveling Tarot Caravan.
It would be hard for any floor to compete with the gorgeous blue refridgerator, the rustic finish on the cabinets and the great decor in the kitchen in Caroline & Simon's Modern Vintage Maisonette in London, but this patterned floor holds its own.
Yet another example of a simple, neutral kitchen getting a beautiful design boost thanks to a patterned floor can be seen in Isabelle's Top Floor Flat of an Old Converted Church in London.
Black and white is a contrasting combination anytime, but when used in a checkerboard pattern on a kitchen floor, it can grab attention even in a room filled with fun design finds and colorful art. The example above spotted in Eric & Patrick's Design Playground.
