Poured Concrete, Slate, or Brick Floors?

I am working on a project right now that involves choosing flooring for a client’s basement.  My client is having a hard time deciding between (you guessed it) stained poured concrete, slate tile, or brick.  For me it would be a no brainer, but I won’t say what I would choose… I’ll let you guess.

There are pros and cons to all three options.  Brick can be laid in a dozen different patterns; you can stain concrete so many different colors; and then slate comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes.  Tough choice.  What would you do?

Brick Floors

I’m short on words (and time) today, so I’ll leave you with this:

How about some more exposed brick… specifically, brick floors…

Herringbone floors

Yesterday, I showed you some of my favorite hardwood floors.  What about herringbone hardwood floors?  Some people might call them chevron floors – whichever is fine with me.  I love seeing pictures of old New York City or Parisian apartments with gorgeous old herringbone floors.  So chic.  Take a look.

I am in LOVE with the photo above.  The light fixture.  The soft blue paint color.  Oh and the floors too.  Kobenhavns Mobelsnedkeri (yes that is apparently a designer) [source]

Hardwood heros

I’m exhausted after festivities this weekend so I’m just going to get straight to the point of this post.  I thought we’d take a look at some of my favorite hardwood floors.  Not much to say about these pictures — I just like the old, wide planks.  I know this is a broad topic, but when I look at these pictures the first thing I notice is the gorgeous floors.

You can also check out some of my favorite painted hardwood floors here.
