If you have a home that is built in a modern style, or if you love the look of contemporary home furnishings, this blog post is for you! While we at Floor Coverings International of Alpharetta can help you find the perfect floors for your home no matter what the style, we wanted to focus our post today on flooring options that can complement a modern home.


Concrete floors are becoming more and more popular as a unique, modern flooring choice. Incredibly durable and surprisingly stylish, concrete floors can add a sleek, modern feel to your home. We’re not talking about the plain, boring concrete found on a sidewalk or a construction site. Today’s concrete floors come in a variety of finishes, textures and shades. From light to dark and bold to subtle, concrete floors can fit nearly any design aesthetic.

One of concrete’s benefits is also one of its downsides – its hardness. While it makes it extremely durable, it can also be uncomfortable to stand on for long periods of time. If you are set on having concrete in your kitchen or living room, be sure to invest in some soft, plush rugs and floor mats to add some cushioning and comfort.


Hardwood is one of the most versatile flooring choices out there. It looks great in nearly any home style, from traditional to modern. If you love the look of hardwood flooring but want something a little more modern for your contemporary home, consider a bold or non-traditional color. We love the dramatic look of dark hardwood, which complements the clean lines of modern décor. If you want something a little brighter, consider a very light or grey-toned finish, which creates a sleek, modern feel.


Cork is a unique flooring choice that has the added benefit of being eco-friendly. It has a distinctive look to it, which makes it popular in modern, contemporary and transitional homes. Cork comes in a variety of colors, but it is commonly seen in a warm, medium brown. Cork is forgiving and cushioned, so it’s comfortable underfoot. The downside to this is that it isn’t the most durable floor and can become damaged from having something hard or sharp dropped on it. If having a modern floor that is also eco-friendly is important to you, cork flooring is a great choice!
