Home inspiration: flooring

I really like the process of choosing the right kind of flooring for a certain room!  I think it really makes or breaks a room and it contributes a lot to the overall atmosphere in a room.

Here is my inspiration for our new house!


We really like the look and feel of a wooden floor, however parquet floor is quite expensive and not childproof in terms of spilling/staining.

We thought we had found the perfect floor compromising what I had wanted (wooden floors) and what my fiancé liked (tile), when we found a tile that looks like laminate floor. But then we found out that this kind of tile wouldn’t work with our underfloor heating – BUMMER.

We will probably, however, choose laminate floor for the upstairs bedrooms.


If it was up to me, I’d choose a more rustic-looking darker tile for the entrance hall, but Maarten is not a fan.


For the living room we both like a pretty basic, light grey tile. I also like the concrete floor (two on the bottom) but we will probably end up choosing a tile that has a slight concrete feel to it.

Which ones do you like? Any regrets on your current flooring?

Home inspiration: staircases

Staircases. What seems to be such a ‘small thing’ to decide on – we have been struggling with. Do we want a wooden staircase or are we tiling the stairs? I’m leaning towards a white+wooden staircase, but I don’t want our house to become a mismatch of all different kinds of wood – so that’s something to be aware of…

Either way, here is some inspiration!

Something I am sure of, is that I want to have some kind of storage build in the staircase.
