Floor Choices from Christy Ferer

Vidicom CEO, Christy Ferer, says the following about floors:

  • Concrete floors can be warmed up with paint, polish, or stenciling. They also can be scored with patterns or set in intricate patterns with tiles (or flat-backed clay or beads, or bits of broken tiles or dishes).
  • Rug Remnants can be finishing with piping.
  • Turkish and Persian rugs have been prized in the West for centuries, since Marco Polo brought them back with him from his travels. Add a modern twist to these timeless rugs by casually layering them.
  • Terra-cotta tile, a favorite flooring in the Mediterranean, Mexico, and India, can be configured in many patterns. Sets of squares, diagonals, or herringbones can be made with square, rectangular diamond, hexagonal, and octagonal tiles. Once the tiles are set and grouted, they can be left naturally rough, polished, or sealed to resist moisture and stains. For a European look, place hand-painted tiles at intervals to act as accents.
