It isn’t easy to find vintage flooring ideas, as there are only a few designs that really work. I’ll be on the lookout for more ideas, but here are some to get you going with your own room makeovers.
Vintage Tile Flooring
Ceramic tiles are a classic choice for flooring. For a vintage style you can go for the more traditional black and white floor design seen in the bathroom pictures (1) and (2). An inexpensive flooring option would be to use black and white vinyl flooring that looks like a tiled design. Another direction would be the more decorative and colorful tiles seen in pictures (3) and (4).
A mosaic of small Hexagon floor tiles also looks great in a vintage styled room (5).
Vintage Floor Patterns
Hardwood flooring is another choice for a vintage style floor. You can arrange the wooden planks into a pattern for a more decorative look. Take a look at the herringbone pattern in pictures (6) and (7). You’ve also got the popular chevron pattern (8).
The chevron pattern can also be used when tiling floors. It is also a great pattern for area rugs (9).
For those of you that don’t have hardwood floors or even if you do, area rugs are a quick way of adding some vintage flooring style to any room.
Some quick ideas include using floral rugs (seen above), or solid pastel shades. Above I mentioned chevron patterned rugs. Don’t forget about those really fluffy vintage style rugs (aka shag rugs) seen in pictures (10) (11) and (12). 1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9/10/11/12/Vintage Carpet
