When you think of small spaces, you might think about mudrooms, powder rooms, or small laundry rooms. And while these spaces are some of the areas where you spend a little less time, that doesn’t mean that the flooring in them should be any less functional, beautiful, or thoughtfully designed.
First things first, how do you know what the best flooring is for a small space? Well, the best flooring for small spaces is one that fits your home’s design and your needs flawlessly. But, there are a few things to consider when choosing flooring for these spaces.
The first thing to consider is what type of space is it? If you’re looking for flooring for a small bathroom, laundry room, playroom, or area where there may be water involved, it’s important to choose flooring that is water-resistant or waterproof. On the other hand, if you are searching for flooring for a space like a small bedroom or closet, you may be able to go for soft-surface flooring like carpet that will make the space feel warm and cozy.
The next thing you may want to consider is what your design goals are. Do you want to make the space look bigger? If so, you’ll want to keep that in mind when choosing a flooring color. Do you want to match the design to the other areas in your home? If you do, you’ll want to look at some flooring samples next to your existing flooring to see how they look next to each other.
Once you have taken these things into consideration, you can start checking out some flooring ideas! Whether you have a flooring style in mind or you’re on the search, we can help you find the perfect flooring for your small space. We’ve crafted a list of ideas to help you get inspired on your journey to the perfect flooring for your small space.
One of the best things about small spaces is that you can go bold with your design without feeling like you’re taking it over the top. That goes for flooring, wall coverings or accent walls, color, décor, and more. Choose a bright, fun color, a crazy pattern you’d never think to use, or something incredibly unique. You can even go bold with multiple elements of the design in a small space when you consider all the aspects of the design and ensure that they are united.
One of our favorite ways to go bold when it comes to flooring in a small space is with tile. Mosaic tile, patterned tile, bright tile, large tile, or tile laid in a unique pattern are all examples of how you can do this in your home. One of our favorites is BelTerra’s Bristol Lane in galaxy. This tile elevates any space with its large format and gorgeous gray and white tone.
Another great way to go bold with flooring might surprise you, but it’s with carpet! That’s right – carpet comes in tons of styles, patterns, and colors, and could provide you the boldness you’re looking for. Samantha’s Sister by Bigelow in the color tranquil is a showstopper for any space. This carpet is just one example of a carpet that feels bold and beautiful, without going overboard.
Moody interior designs are all the rage this year, and if you’re interested in trying this trend but you’re a little nervous about going all in, this is the perfect opportunity! There’s almost no better time to try out this trend than in a small space like a bathroom or powder room, as it is an area that can be changed more quickly than others. Plus, these areas typically offer less light, which makes them a great canvas for moody designs. Moody designs feature deeper, darker colors, so flooring that is a deep gray, rich brown, or even black fit the style perfectly.
We love Albany Ridge by Rustic River in the color wild horse. This dark, natural hardwood floor has a way of capturing all there is to love about hardwood and its rustic character, while also offering a touch of sleek, simplistic beauty and class.
Another one of our top picks for moody flooring is Invincible XT Summit Place in elmhurst. While this flooring color is not as dark, it can still provide the perfect complement to any small space. Dress it up with deep green wall colors and gold accents or play off the dark gray lines in the flooring for a moody, elegant look.
If you’re feeling like the moody or bold trend isn’t quite your style and want to go with something a bit more timeless, how about flooring that brightens up the space? Timeless flooring that makes the space shine and complements all the other elements of your design is an excellent way to spruce up your small space, whether it’s a bathroom, hallway, small bedroom, or laundry room.
Invincible H2O’s Friendly Shores luxury vinyl in the color grove is one light and airy flooring that will brighten up any small space. We love it because it highlights natural-looking knots and mineral streaks and pairs well with any home design.
Another flooring idea for your small space is to go with a light carpet like Chambord II by Tigressa in the color arctic. This bright white carpet will certainly bounce light off the walls in your small space to make it look bigger, and it’ll give you the opportunity to add in either neutral or edgy décor to suit your home’s interior design.
