Unique Flooring Options From Around the World

Are you looking for some new and unique flooring options for your home? Check out this list of artistic, eye-catching and unique flooring options from around the globe.

Roman Tile Floor

The most luxurious homes during the Golden Age of Rome boasted floors that were a fantastic work of art. Tiny colored tiles were created with meticulous care to make beautiful mosaics. Animal motifs were common, but so were geometric patterns. Some Romans also enjoyed heated floors. In this present day, you can have a mosaic floor just as the Romans, and have it heated for some extra cash, too.

Bamboo Cane Floor

Over the years, bamboo has become popular as an eco-friendly choice to hardwood. Bamboo has the same shiny, grainy and smooth appearance of a typical wooden floor and the same durability, too. However, bamboo grows faster than regular trees, which makes it a renewable source. Bamboo is easy to clean and can last for many years.

Log End Floor

Log end floor is a different twist on the standard hardwood floor. With an amazingly rustic yet sophisticated appearance, the log-end floor is made of well-crafted log pieces to bring the feeling of a traditional log cabin and a splash of high-class.A log-end floor has a very flexible design and is superbly comfortable to walk on.

Rubber Floor

If you want to think out of the ordinary in regard to floors for your kitchen, a rubber floor is a beautiful, unique flooring choice. Typically, used in playroom and gyms, rubber is springy underfoot and soft, so it is excellent for standing for an extended period, such as when cooking or washing the dishes. A rubber floor is durable and requires low maintenance. It will provide a fresh and unique look for homeowners who want something different.

Penny Floor

A fresh and exciting trend is known as a penny floor aka copper floor. Penny floor is just as the name implies: a layer of pennies makes up this unique floor, held firmly into place with a sealant. Even though it takes a considerable amount of time to lay down all the pennies, it is surprisingly affordable. If you want stylish flooring for your home without spending too much, the penny floor is a great choice.

When renovating your home, you should consider choosing a unique flooring option as it can boost the value and appeal of your home. Not sure what to pick? Ask your real estate agent what flooring types are the best return on investment in your market.

I am a 70 yr old recent widow who needed to reluctantly sell our house alone for the first time. Eric Lindlau, owner of Lindlau Realty, was the perfect choice for me. He explained in detail the entire process answering all my questions. He was sensitive to my emotional state, kind and helpful in every way. He even assisted me when I accidentally locked myself out of the house! He emailed me selling prices of comparable houses, which helped me understand realistic values in our living area. I highly recommend this personable young man for your real estate needs.

Eric was GREAT to work with!! He was a dual agent for us and the home seller. When any challenges arose he knew how to handle them with poise. He was in communication with us throughout the entire process. I would recommend him for all of your real estate dealings.

Eric was an amazing person to work with. He helped me through a somewhat difficult purchase that had lots of unexpected bumps. Eric always returned my phone calls and emails promptly and was above all...honest!!! So many times when you are dealing with folks who make their living on commission, you feel like they are trying to "sell" you all the time. That was never the case with Eric. He was a complete professional and nice guy. I enjoyed working with him so much that he is now representing me in another sale.

Eric was always so willing to work with our schedules and he took the time over 3 months to show us over 20 houses. He was very knowledgeable and would give us his honest opinion. He always gave us great and honest advice but would still do whatever we asked of him. He found us such a good deal and when we thought we were extremely annoying or need to he was always pleasant and willing to help however.
