For the average homeowner that has an active home with kids and pets, and even those homeowners who prefer a calm, minimal design scheme, the simplicity of the Scandinavian design perspective is trending in the design world. Born out of modern interior design, Scandinavian design remains popular due to the emphasis on functionality, as well as the use of natural materials and organic lines to cultivate a strong, reassuring connection to nature.
You don’t have to be a professional designer in order to bring in stylish Scandinavian design elements that add warmth and well-being to our homes. From our doorsteps to the flooring in our favorite rooms, we have stylish products that can enhance the coziness, comfort, and overall ‘hygge’ of your home! Here are some of our favorite Scandinavian flooring options for crafting simple joy:
Warmth – If you have hard surface flooring like hardwood, tile, laminate, or vinyl that does not immediately lend warmth, it’s time to cozy these rooms up. Throws and rugs that are either made from organic fibers or emulate wool, sheepskin, and other animal-inspired textures, are perfect for adding texture and comfort. Bigelow Prestige Rendezvous in Bordeaux features a loop linen pattern in sixteen fashion-forward colors and a slightly raised rib weave for added depth. It’s not only stunning, but it’s also an effortless style statement.
Woven Textures – For comfortable texture that is easy-to-clean and can be used in areas that will need moisture resistance, Bel Terra Fabric Art is a modern porcelain tile that offers woven visual in cool grays and blacks. This option easily pairs with other varieties from the Fabric Art Collection for creating memorable floors and walls. Not only is Scandinavian design easy to create, but in some cases, it’s also easy to maintain and keep fresh.
Neutral Toned Spaces – When it comes to selecting a color scheme that will reflect Scandinavian design, neutral tones like white, grey, black, taupe, and brown are excellent for creating the modern design foundation through your floors and walls. These colors produce a soothing effect and allow for pops of deep, cool colors such as rosy salmon, fuchsia, and emerald or sea green to come from our furniture and decorative accents. We love the combination of elegant Bel Terra RevoTile in Carrara White and white painted walls to allow your favorite relaxing shades to sing.
Light-Colored Flooring – Natural light is a key component to Scandinavian design and the flooring you choose can help illuminate spaces for more inviting appeal. Lighter, airy colored hardwoods, as well as the laminate and luxury vinyl options that capture these species, are trending and serve as an exceptional fit for ample natural light. Invincible H2O Charleston Place Herringbone in Pure Beauty will give your home the waterproof durability of Invincible H2O luxury vinyl and the perfect floor to reflect light for brighter, more spacious feeling rooms. Keep window treatments to a minimum and let your simplistic design shine.
With more time spent indoors these days, it’s beyond important to capture a relaxing environment that will truly help us to recharge from stressful workdays and prevent cabin fever from ever setting in. We are always eager to provide the expert advice that can help you choose the best Scandinavian flooring options- Let’s talk!
