Effective room design combines various aspects to create a harmonious and aesthetically pleasing space. Elements such as layout, color scheme, lighting, and furnishings are crucial in shaping a room’s overall look and feel.

Furniture serves both functional and aesthetic purposes. The choice of furniture can influence the room’s style, whether modern, traditional, or eclectic. The style and arrangement of furniture, soft furnishings, and decorative pieces all contribute to a space’s final look. 

Choosing the right flooring adds to the aesthetic, and as it is a significant investment in the design process, equipping the rest of the space with furniture and finishings that highlight your flooring is essential. 

Every aspect of room design, including furniture, accents, and flooring, is vital in creating a visually appealing and functional space. Coordinating these elements thoughtfully ensures an attractive and well-balanced space. 

Our Tips to Best Show Off Your Luxury Concrete Pavers

Take ten minutes to browse the internet, and you’ll undoubtedly find thousands of design tips and tricks (many conflicting) to create the perfect room design. 

The wealth of interior design information can be overwhelming, but it’s important to remember that you don’t need to use every suggestion in the interior design book. Here are four tips to consider when decorating your room and enhancing your flooring. 

  1. Play Around with Textures and Materials

    Wood, metal, stone, glass, there’s no reason your room can’t incorporate various textures and materials. Our luxury concrete pavers are the cost-effective, greener solution to quarried stone pavers. They are handcrafted, and their natural idiosyncrasies mean that, texturally, the pavers closely resemble stone. Concrete pavers work beautifully alongside rough textures found in unfinished wood or rocks, but they are also complimented by smoother textures.

    Play around with your soft furnishings, too. These days, we have so many options to choose from regarding material for cushions, curtains, sofas, and more. Use soft, airy materials to offset hard corners and serious, dark colors. Or choose decadent felts and velvets to enhance the intimacy of a space.

    No matter your room’s final aesthetic, mixing and matching textures and materials throughout keeps the space interesting. 
  2. Rugs Make an Impression

    A beautiful luxury concrete floor – whether in warm Buff, dark Slate, or softer Oyster – always looks good underneath a carefully chosen rug. Rugs serve many purposes. They provide extra warmth in cooler months, define spaces in open-plan living, and lend softness and comfort to large areas of harder flooring.

    Rugs are also artistic pieces that can tie a room’s color palette together or break up any monotony with a splash of color. Choose bright, whimsical colors to liven up a living space or soft, neutral tones for a calm bedroom. Either way, using rugs in interior design is an easy way to make a splash.   
  3. Colorful Accent Furniture

    It’s not only the rugs and floors that can provide focal points of interest; accent furniture is modern, stylish, and impactful. Instead of classic shades of varnished wood, an accent piece works well as a stark contrast to the room’s flooring. Think dark flooring paired with bright armchairs or white flooring featuring a boldly colored dining table.

    As long as your colors complement each other, there’s no reason not to experiment and have fun while doing so. 
  4. Indoor Plants

    Indoor plants are perfect room dividers and focal points. No matter what shade of flooring you choose, natural greenery will match. For example, add some prickly pears or cacti to your rustic bathroom or feature a bright indoor palm in a sunny spot where white flooring will offset the deep green leaves.
