Whether your Vancouver home is old or new, you can use certain flooring styles to give it an air of vintage class and character. Plus, our Floor Coverings International Northshore experts help you find the perfect style for your needs. Here are three of our favorite vintage-inspired options:

Parquet Wood Flooring

Parquet wood flooring obviously requires extra care to install, which is why you often only see it in grand, old buildings and homes. Therefore, if you want to add a dramatic decorative accent to your space, you should definitely consider parquet flooring. Parquet can be done in a variety of styles, including the mid-century square design, or the European chevron and herringbone styles. You will just need to be prepared for the extra installation costs of labor-intensive parquet floors.

Black & White Mosaic Tile

Black and white tile is characteristic of buildings from the early 20th century, so it is perfect for giving a vintage look to your kitchen or bathroom. You can choose between classic subway tile and smaller, decorative tiles, such as basket weave designs. This kind of tile also blends perfectly into Craftsman homes, which are so common in the Vancouver area.

Marble Tile

Marble tile is the perfect combination of classic and trendy. Though marble is quite popular for kitchens and bathrooms at the moment, it has long been a feature in grand old homes. Marble tile adds a luxurious, high-end accent to any space. Whether you install a tile entryway or a backsplash, your guests are sure to notice the timeless beauty of marble.
