Every surface in your home is a canvas, including the floors. There are so many ways you can customize them to help create the look you want in your home or even to make a design statement. One of my favorite looks is high gloss floors. They elevate the look of common wood or concrete flooring to something chic and sophisticated.
Glossy floors are a great way to make a striking statement without being too bold. They are classic, elegant, and versatile depending on the type of wood or concrete stain you choose. For example, you can take a knotty pine flooring and put a high gloss polish over it for a rustic yet glamorous look. Similarly, you can take a cold concrete floor and turn it into a beautiful, upscale feature.
Here are 10 glossy floor ideas to give you some inspiration for your own home.
