How to Get That Rustic Wood Look


Interior design trends come and go, but if any flooring look has maintained its popularity over the past couple of decades, it has to be a rustic wooden style. Intimately linked to our appreciation of authenticity and history, rustic wood flooring is a real style keeper; today, it’s a “classic”. Easy to work into virtually any interior design scheme, this versatile but enduringly trendy flooring option is tough to beat. So how can you get the look yourself?

In a recent and comprehensive blog post, the team at Home Flooring Pros have shared some of the most popular rustic wood-look flooring options, ranging from the real deal to laminate alternatives. Offering a thorough breakdown of the pros and cons of each option, this is a really handy resource for anyone with rustic inclinations!

Can Child-Friendly Homes Still be Style Conscious?

Child-proofing your home can be a big change when you’re starting a family. With so many practical considerations to keep in mind and incorporate into your interiors, it’s not always easy to create a safe and convenient space for your youngsters and beautiful space adults can enjoy. But according to the Posh Flooring blog, you really can have it all.

Featuring interviews with parent bloggers Yorkshire Dad and Life With Munchers, Posh Flooring’s post also shares a few helpful tips for giving any family home a dose of workable style which doesn’t get in the way of everyday life.
