If you are going to invest in wood floors, why not make them really stand out? How, you ask? By making them unique, special and one-of-a-kind. Don’t think of your wood floor as one solid entity. Think of it as a canvas made up of separate pieces – a place where you can express yourself and your style. It helps to break it down into areas and think of ways you can make those areas stand out. Here are some ways to take your floor from ordinary to amazing.
Entryways Can Set the Tone
The entryway is where visitors get their first impression of your home. This is the perfect place to add a little pizzazz. Medallions are a great choice for foyers and entryways. They are available pre-designed, or if you want to design your own version, the wood floor experts at SVB can make any design you come up with. Imagine the reactions of guests when they see this beautiful design as soon as they walk into your home.
Wood Floors Can Add Elegance to Your Dining Room
Another wonderful place for a little personality is your dining room. One design element we really like is a border. Simply adding a border of a different color or type of wood creates a cozy space creating the illusion of an area rug in the center.

Simply Install Planks on an Angle
Sometimes, just changing the angle of the planks can add an originality and freshness to an otherwise ordinary floor as in the first photo. Or you can angle your planks in a pattern for even more interest. This effect even works in small spaces like bathrooms as in the last two photos.
Mix and Match
Mix types of wood for a dramatic contrast. Mixing a lighter wood with a darker wood creates very interesting floors. This unexpected combination is unique and elegant. Or mix wide planks with narrow planks or short and long planks for an original and fresh look. Your imagination really is the limit. No matter what kind of wood floor you want installed, SVB Wood Floors can do it. You just let us know and we’ll make it happen.
