Today, individual homeowners spend more time outdoors and invest more easily in the recreational areas around their homes. Finding ideas to customize their decor is therefore a priority. The terraces, relaxing areas and swimming pool beaches give them the opportunity to let their imagination run wild. This is a great way to give their outdoor spaces a special style.
In search of an ever more subtle design, the use of a touch of colour in the background is often enough to create a terrace that will stand out from that of its neighbour. With a little more audacity and originality, imagine what a custom flooring pattern can give to the inlaid flooring on the pool deck or terrace of your house.
When space permits, the integrated motives can make your terrace as attractive and stylish as the rest of your home. Customizable as you wish, the inlays are an excellent way to add this little extra something to your terrace that will make it unique.
Think about it, you may have a coat of arms, an acronym or even just initials that characterize your family and you may want to make it a ground motif that will personalize your home. A distinctive touch that belongs only to you.
Motives are not only a decorative element that personalizes your space. They also have a functional role. Indeed, they can advantageously divide large spaces and add visual interest to a large terrace. Modern designers even recommend them for these large, often monotonous spaces.
The motives inlaid in a terrace are often personalized creations because the possibilities are unlimited. If the possibilities are immense and that tends to make you dizzy, don’t worry, you can very well fall back on the great classics. The wind rose you will be able to customize, the waves and rounded lines, the squares or rectangles nested, the borders of different colors, there are many ways to customize your patterns.
The era of traditional terraces, unicoloured, square or rectangular with no special charm is over. Today we love life, nature, colors and inlays of personalized patterns provide decorative elements that will set you apart from the property of any man.
What motives will you integrate in your floors ? What colours are you going to put inside ? Too many ideas ? It’s normal they can be infinite !
James Moylan President of Design Builder, inc. once spoke on this subject, he said :
“The installation of inlaid motives is an excellent way to break the visual monotony of large terraces of more than 20 feet (about 6 meters) long…”
“In order to position the inlay correctly, it is necessary to take into account your furnishings and decor. As for the choice of motives, I, for my part, recommend simplicity – subtle but flairful motives.”
