Wood flooring pattern- Transform your space

Here are a few ways you can think about and utilize floors when covering small spaces:

  • Diagonal patterning gets a thumbs up: Creating a criss-cross type pattern seems to extend the size of the floor, as it works against the naturally blocked-out square shape of most smaller rooms. Be careful of checkerboard patterns, however. If they are the wrong size, they can make the room seem even smaller.

  • Wider planks make more sense: Thinking about using a product like hardwood or laminate in your small room? Though you might gravitate toward thinner planks or strips, revisit your initial plans. Wider planks can work to make your room look bigger. They can also be more affordable because you need fewer of them.

  • Larger tiles provide depth: A newly popular type of flooring is luxury vinyl tile (LVT). Whether you are sold on LVT or another type of tiled hard flooring or carpet, always pick bigger tiles. Many people make the misstep of choosing tiny tiles in their intimately sized rooms, which only emphasizes how small the space is.
