You can create Bohemian décor in any building, but certain materials fit this design more than others. If you build a house (or room) from scratch and have preferences toward Boho style, you may want to consider the flooring options. There are several flooring options that match the style’s eclectic yet cozy look.
Here are several Boho flooring options to consider.
Bamboo flooring suits the style and spirit of Boho style. It is sustainable, elegant, and easy to maintain. The subtle beauty of bamboo also fits a Boho room: similar to hardwood but more distinctive. Bamboo is also slightly harder than hardwood, although extreme humidity can cause cracks and discoloration.
Another sustainable material, cork provides a padded surface under your feet. It has a natural charm and hypoallergenic quality, a perfect combination for Bohemian décor. Cork is affordable, easy to install, and it requires easy maintenance. However, it is not an ideal material for a house with active pets. Cork can also easily fade and get scratched.
A distressed wood floor is perfect for a Bohemian room that leans to rustic or natural. While the wood provides natural and sleek elegance, the distressed elements make it more welcoming. Distressed wood floor also offers a strong character, perfect to make your Bohemian home stand out.
If you already have a permanent floor and want to add some Boho appeal, install a carpet from woven grass-like sisal. This carpet has a unique, prominent texture, creating a subtle natural beauty. The tight weaving makes this carpet perfect to make the floor less slippery.
