Get on the Floor

Interior designer Juan Montoya rightly said, “A room should never allow the eye to settle in one place. It should smile at you and create fantasy.” 

To create a space that narrates a story and smiles at you, you need to get the basics right. Those basics begin with, yes, you guessed that right, the floor. The floor can set the style and ambience of your design theme. It works like a vast canvas that catches the eye, despite it being where we set foot on. 

Floors are the first contact with your space and can make or break a design theme in a blink. It impacts the perception of a room. These, among many other reasons, are why you should get your flooring right. It is equally important to get your floor accessories right too to accentuate your flooring and other design elements. We’ve got some inspiration right here to get started with!
