If you are making your living place from scratch, have you ever thought about making a puzzle from different colors to the floor, as an alternative of colorful carpets? Setting of a colorful floor could give a different spirit to the interior, and be very interesting and unusual. It could be a great place for storytelling for the children, who would learn about the world from the very same ground. You can put tiles in different colors on the floor, diagonal lines, flowers, or even write some powerful quote on the floor! Another option is to engage designers or professional company to paint your floor and crate some interesting carpet-like image!

Still, you have to think about the floor surface and it’s maintenance. Sometimes, the living and weather conditions are requiring carpets, and you can’t do anything about it, but to protect the surface!
