Adding Texture with Patterned Floors

Adding pattern is a great way to liven up a home, and doing so isn't always relegated to wallpaper or fabric selection. Check out the striking patterned floors in these homes!

Flooring is a design element often overlooked in the creation of a home. Neutral appearances or hard-wearing materials are usually the top considerations when selecting flooring, but implementing pattern into the design of your floors could be just the right move. Sure, it would be a very gutsy thing to do, but if it's a look you truly love, it can easily turn your home from nice looking into spectacular.

You could get the look of the homes above by laying a beautiful geometric tile in certain rooms of your house (tile is a great material for entryways, kitchens, and bathrooms), stenciling the floor, or even using a modern (gasp!) linoleum.
