The Most Unique Flooring Ideas

The Most Unique Flooring Ideas

All elements of a custom home can be unique, including the floors!

Windows, roofing, walls, and flooring are the basics of any home. Each category has its own list of the most unique options, not the least of which is the list for unique floors! The floor of your home can create a smooth neutral canvas or be a statement of texture, pattern, and color of its own. Below are six of the truly most unique flooring ideas to date.


Parquet flooring is strips or tiles of different colored woods arranged in a pleasing and often intricate pattern. Checker, herringbone, and basketweave are just a few options for what parquet can be. For a custom home, parquet flooring can be truly customized.

Polished Concrete

Polished concrete is naturally highly durable and looks great for a modern or industrial look. Polished concrete can suit far more styles than one, however, as it can take on all kinds of patterns and colors, from a smooth gray to a pebbly look to a cloudy mix of brown and tan.

Painted Wood or Tile

If you are an artist or want to hire an artist, you could have a one-of-a-kind floor with painted wood or tile. Ceramic or porcelain tile can come premade in all kinds of colors, shapes, and patterns. On the other hand, some homeowners opt to create a unique design of their own either on tile or directly on their hardwood flooring. 

Wood and Tile Combo

If you are looking to create a unique flow between a living area and a utility area such as the kitchen, laundry room, bathroom, or entryway, you could create a custom cut-out that fits uneven tiles together with the wood flooring. This works excellently with a honeycomb tile. Another method is to combine wood and tile evenly through parquet flooring.

Reclaimed Hardwood

Reclaimed hardwood is one unique flooring option that is sure to bring a rustic or antique look and feel to your home. If you love history or love to reuse materials, reclaiming used hardwood flooring can add that element of history or sustainability to your home and look good as new.


Brick is not a flooring material you see every day, although it was more common in olden French country homes. Today, one can install brick flooring in various levels of thickness for a durable, warm, and timeless feel.
