At Floor Coverings International® of Waukesha, we offer a wide variety of hardwood flooring materials, so there’s something for every style. One popular choice is pine hardwood. Pine flooring brings a warm, natural feeling into a home. It’s a versatile material that can be used in both historic houses and in sleek, modern apartments. It works well in the country, at the beach, or in the middle of the city. Below are some ideas of how to incorporate pine flooring into a diversity of interior styles here in the Waukesha, Wisconsin, area.
Whether your home is on the shores of Lake Michigan, or you want to create a beach house look for your inland home, pine hardwood floors are a classic choice for beach house decor. Complete the look with a muted palette for the walls and ceilings, featuring white and a blue or mint paint color. Add braided rugs and simple white or blue draperies. The overall effect is welcoming, peaceful, and relaxing, much like a day at the beach.
Pine hardwood floors create the perfect design base for a modern farmhouse look. Paint the walls white with vibrant dark blue accents. A long farm table can be paired with benches or with sleek modern chairs. Add paintings of rural scenes, keep the clutter out of sight in vintage cabinets, and you will have a home that will become a favorite gathering place for family and friends.
Colonial Americans used white pine flooring, and you can recreate the feeling of that era by bringing today’s beautiful white pine floors into your home. Go all-out with antique or replica furniture to immerse yourself in history. Mix and match new and old pieces for a personalized look, or add just a few striking accents that evoke Colonial times, such as a grandfather clock, a stenciled wall design, or a gorgeous patchwork quilt. By bringing the past into the present you will create a home that surrounds you with enduring, classic values.
Pine floors can create a sophisticated, airy look in a city apartment, while bringing the warmth of nature into the lively city. Keep the decorating palette light. Consider white walls and white painted furniture with a few black accents and brightly colored paintings. Keep furnishings to a minimum to encourage a feeling of spaciousness. Your home will become a calm oasis in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the city.
