The floor takes up a significant amount of square footage and thus is one of the most high impact spaces in your living room. Ue one flooring material, such as wood or carpet, throughout your living room and adjoining rooms to visually expand the space and create flow with your design. In that same vein, avoid interrupting the eye with contrasting floor coverings.

Where tile is concerned, the phrase “less is more” rings true. Gone are the days of covering the entire room in saturated tile. Rather modern bathrooms use colorful tiles to draw attention to a focal point. Use it in a spa-like rainforest shower or as an eye-catching backsplash behind your vanity.
