Beautiful hardwood flooring with a compass design and an eye-catching design make this transitional entryway really stand out. The white molding carries through to the wainscoting for a cohesive design.
This guest bedroom achieves a more sophisticated look with the addition of new hardwood flooring and a bar-height, built-in vanity. The room is spacious and inviting thanks to the simple furnishings and color combinations.
This hallway is kept bright with white walls and natural light from the layers of large windows. Light hardwood steps match the flooring. A stylish glass table supports modern decoration and red flowers adding a touch of color to the hall.
This spacious, transitional laundry room offers plenty of room for functional and stylish design ideas to form. Designer Traci Zeller adds drama to the room through a black-and-white color scheme and checkerboard tiled flooring. Glass decanters serve as attractive storage containers for detergent, clothespins and other laundry essentials.
Linoleum is made with renewable, biodegradable materials including linseed oil and cork. Mineral pigments are added to produce rich, vibrant colors. Linoleum produces no harmful vapors and is considered a top environmentally friendly flooring choice.
Linoleum comes as sheet goods designed for glue-down installation and as laminated planks and tiles that install as a floating floor system. Some manufacturers provide a protective coating that prevents staining and helps the product stand up to foot traffic. Linoleum without this coating should be refinished every two years.
Expect to pay $2 to $5 per square foot and $7 to $12 per square foot installed.
Incorporating textural differences into your master bath will not only create an excellent design plan, but will also add depth to your space.
