Home Style: Floor It

When your high-trafficked flooring needs a lift, options from Paracca Interiors will take your carpet or tile from mundane to magnificent.

This Weathered Saddle Hickory flooring warms a room with rich grain and hand-scraped texture.


“The floor is the fifth wall to any room,” explains Sallie Starr Paracca, sales and marketing manager at Paracca Interiors Flooring America. “Don’t ignore it. Embrace it, and give your room character and presence by choosing a floor that works with your interior design.”

Today, she says, floor designs are embracing more green themes.

“Homeowners are investing in floors that are natural — including bamboo, cork and natural fiber rugs,” says Paracca. “These are just a few eco-friendly choices — giving customers beautiful options to explore.” She adds that wood floors have become a common selection for customers.

“Natural-colored and hand-scraped woods are a big trend, while light-toned woods, such as maple, ash and aspen, add a look of natural grain to floors, as well as the eco-friendly bamboo floor — which is a little less costly.”

Design Tip:

Most tile collections have special pieces for creating designs and decorative borders within a pattern. These options can help you assemble an exquisite, detailed look for your home. “If the tile you select doesn't have matching trim pieces, a suitable replacement trim tile can usually be found,” says Paracca. “Don't overlook stone, wood or metal trim that can also provide a clean finished edge and a uniquely stunning accent.”
