For some, separate rooms still hold their charm. But many homeowners today are taking a sledgehammer to their traditional floor plans so they can enjoy cooking, eating and movie watching all in one space. Decades ago, homes were built with the notion that every room has a distinct function. You cook in a kitchen, so it was a separate room — often with a door. Dining rooms were formal. Living rooms were for entertaining or relaxing, and were set apart from the kitchen.
When they designed this home in the Czech Republic, OOOOX used the concrete floors to give the living area a sophisticated and modern look. The bare ceiling has a similar effect on the decor. Further more, the color palette is neutral and the lighting is spot on and these details influence the overall design and ambiance in a similar manner.
Even your contemporary, retro-inspired kitchen could use some sheen and shined laminate flooring to top off the look. And the lighter choice here keeps the room more open in feel. If you have more of a funky, eclectic taste in home decor, then this space may give you some beautiful inspiration. Laminate floors can resemble real hardwood quite well!
Here’s another wood-laminate floor that’s filled with unusual color tones. It’s a mix of natural, light wood shades and a swirl of gray too. Which is such a beautiful brighter to this hazy, cottage kitchen.
