  1. Flooring choices have really gone through the roof of late. Friends our ours did a tile that looks exactly like a berber rug. It’s confusing when you see it and feel it. I love these ideas and after seeing them I’m disappointed I went with such a plain tile for our kitchen.

    1. lol there are some confusing flooring ideas out there! don’t worry! you’ll get a chance to try something new for your kitchen! Tile Stencil is always available! And they look gorgeous! But if your not a pattern loving person, there are some new products like stick and peel vinyl floors with wood appearance, the 3D is pretty impressive it really looks like wood! And it doesn’t damage your floor! It’s just peel and stick! Easy!

  2. I love these flooring ideas. I really like wooden floors but ceramic tiles look great as well.

  3. The flooring ideas looks so cool. colorful and bright. I like the one with flowers pattern on them.

  4. Oh my goodness this makes me want to redo my kitchen SOOOOOO badly now! These flooring choices are amazing! I especially love he mixed wood feel – excuse me now while I go talk my husband into a new kitchen reno job lol

  5. You make everything look so gorgeous! And I do love the stencil tiles, which, is where my eye flowed because I am on a budget. That one was beautiful!

    1. Thank you! Being able to show my passion for creating spaces that keeps us inspired and creates beautiful feelings, when we are in those spaces, is awesome! I see home design as a form of self-caring too, because caring for the space that surrounds you evokes a sense of calm in you. Your home should be the best place to be and not a place where you want to get out.

  6. Such detailed ideas and photos, I normally don’t care much about floor decor but what you suggested is worth trying.

  7. Wow this really makes me want to do a hex floor when my boyfriend and I have our own house together someday. We’re in an apartment we can’t really renovate, but now I’m thinking that these are way better than basic wood planks.

  8. Great idea! Very timely since we’re planning for a home renovation in the next few months. I am actually undecided yet with the type of flooring and color palette/ scheme that we will use for the kitchen. Thank you so much for sharing this. Very helpful.
