Imagine your favorite space. Describe all the objects in it. What if now you get rid of the dividing wall? What is left? Does it still look like a room? What elements are still intact to distinguish them as spaces?
The wall is one of the easiest and most recognizable architectural elements to reinforce a room. Let us develop this idea and identify other ways to determine the perception of a space. For example is by making the floor as a barrier. The wood floor transition between rooms is one of the ways. Making wood flooring as a medium of transition between rooms is a good choice. There are creative ideas that you can apply on your wood floor. You can make changes to your floor level. In addition, the wood floor lined with ceramics is not a bad idea. If you already use the ceramic floor, then you can try it. Here are more tips on wood floor transitions between rooms that you can imitate:
- Different Floor Patterns
When you want to use wood flooring throughout the room in your home, choose a different wood color but not a striking color. In fact, you can create different designs to create a character, for example arranging a wooden board with herringbone pattern in a space of a room.
- Floor Level Changes
Changing the floor level inside the house by making the stairs will show a dramatic transition to another room and strengthen the character of a space.
Floor level changes can mark a specific zone in an open space. This is indicated by the absence of an insulating wall between the sitting room and another adjacent room, only around one or more staircases that distinguish the two areas. Level changes can also reinforce smaller areas in more spacious spaces. A sitting room on the lower level (sunken seating area) also creates a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere.
- Different Floor Material Combination
To change the look of ceramics into marble is not difficult, because between them almost no significant difference. However, to make the transition from tile floors to wood flooring is a difficult thing. If not paid attention, the end result will not match what is expected.
Most floors that use marble or ceramic currently have a thickness between 3/8 – 3/4 inches. Whereas most of the wood flooring has a thickness of 3/4 inch. This means, when putting ceramics next (after) wood flooring, it is worth noting the right ceramic choices. The goal is to make the transition to the floor look harmonious.
Basically making the right transition requires the homeowner to make some kind of good barrier to cover the meeting between two different floors. When making a floor transition, it should be done when the floor-making is done. You can pay attention to the art of wood floor transitions that can cover the tile floor. The wooden floor is not made to pile on the tile floor but there is a transition layer that covers between the two. So the results will be able to show the beautiful transition results when in view.
