6 Flooring Ideas To Transform Any Room Or Home

When we are building annexes or self-build home projects there are several moments during the build where the project transforms from building site to home.

Once the plastering is complete and the painting and flooring goes down you suddenly start to see exactly why building an annexe in your back garden was a really great idea.

Our Contemporary Log Living portfolio of choices for kitchens, bathrooms and flooring is one of the best and most stylish available and when it comes to choosing those all important finishing touches such as the flooring we always work with the customer to make sure their individual style is catered to.

We supply & fit laminate flooring throughout our annexes and have several upgrade available (you simply pay the difference) to make sure your annexe looks stunning.

Most People’s Favourite Colour Choice Is Oak

Adding an oak coloured floor to an annexe is a neutral choice that works with most styles and colours. As long as there is not too much yellow in the flooring it can enhance everything and give added warmth to white kitchens and bathrooms that can sometimes end up looking very clinical without it.

Proving Popular Are Grey Tones

Grey tones in the flooring can be a great choice for a cooler more contemporary feel to the annexe or home. Mixed with darker tones and even walnuts and chocolate browns they work well with traditional or contemporary styles. Easy to keep clean (although dust gathers quickly) these lovely floors can bring a whole new look to any room.

Traditional Or Hardwood Floors

For adding character to a room a traditional hardwood floor is impossible to beat. Real wood flooring, laminate and engineered flooring all require different care so it is best to take advice from professionals before you spend your money as to whether it is suitable for the room. If you have underfloor heating you will also need to seek professional advice on what type of flooring can be laid on top. Complete the look with leather furniture, a stone fireplace and traditional style furniture.

Black Is The Perfect Choice For That Industrial Look

Black is quite hard to live with and not as practical as you would think but if you want to create that industrial look and are careful to mix it with natural textures like the reclaimed brick feature wall in the photo above it can look stunning. Wooden flooring choices have come a long way in the last few years and this herringbone pattern adds interest too.

Softer And Warmer Than Tiles But Just As Practical

Bathrooms and en-suite bathrooms can have wooden flooring as a softer and warmer alternative to tiling and can easily add to the feeling of the overall space in an annexe by using the same flooring throughout the new home or annexe. Cushion floor is another way of achieving this look eliminating the constant battle of keeping tiling grout looking fresh.

Wide Plank Engineered Flooring

When you choose to upgrade to engineered flooring you will immediately see the difference in quality and finishes. With brushed, oiled or washed finishes to choose from and a wide choice of colours and styles you will be amazed at what you can create just by changing the flooring.


  1. Your floor is one of the largest areas on view in your home so it is easy to transform a space simply by changing the flooring.
  2. Oak is the best choice for warming up even the most modern and contemporary kitchens and bathrooms.
  3. If you have children, pets or hobbies that leave a trail through the house, wooden flooring is much more practical and will always look good.
  4. For a high quality flooring finish choose engineered flooring as it tends to be less problematic than real wood flooring and has a rich sheen finish that immediately looks good in any room.
