A pattern is already starting to emerge: the combination of wood and concrete, two materials that complement each other beautifully and in every sense. Exposed concrete was used extensively by Henri Cleinge in the design of this home from Montreal, Canada but so was wood. These two materials define both the interior and the exterior living spaces.
Dark/black hardwood floors can be the most amazing and sought after things that will easily gel with any home or office décor. One significant thing to take note of out here is that when you go for hardwood dark/black floors you should buy light colored furniture. The combination of dark/black floors will blend with light color furniture and increase its effect.
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!
A different strategy was used by Cornerstone Architects when they designed this residence in Austin, Texas. To give the living room a warm and cozy ambiance while keeping the decor simple, they combined a polished concrete floor with a wood-clad accent wall and neutral-colored furniture and carpeting.
