Linoleum is often mistaken for vinyl, although the two materials are very different from each other. Linoleum tends to be a bit more old-fashioned and better suited for retro and mid-century decors while vinyl is more versatile and sophisticated and better suited for modern spaces, especially since it comes in so many different colors and finishes. Both options are affordable and durable. Linoleum flooring is durable and easy to maintain although installation is not that simple and may very well require professional help.
Because travertine is basically stone, it doesn’t come in a lot of colors and those that are available and earth tones. This limits the options greatly compared to other materials. Nevertheless, you can’t really replicate the look with anything else. You can take advantage of the natural beauty and the texture of the travertine floor tiles and complement them with a stone counter in the kitchen or with unfinished walls and pure and natural materials in general.
Concrete flooring is definitely not what it used to be. Not so long ago, we used to hide our concrete floors under tiles, wood planks and carpets and only leave it exposed in outdoor areas or basements. We did that because they looked unfinished and dull and they still do up to a certain point. However, we’ve now started to make the most of these unique characteristics and all the others that define concrete flooring.
Many designer concrete floors for their simplicity and durability and complemented them with gray walls, warm wooden features and full-height windows that let in light and views. Concrete floors are also a way of connecting a space to the outdoors and of establishing a seamless transition.
