A very important rule when decorating or remodeling your home is to think of resale. What you believe to be beautiful and unique may not appeal to others and could cost you dearly when it comes to selling your home. Highly personalized homes can be a very difficult sell. This floor is one example.
Another new flooring trend that definitely falls into the 'highly personalized' category are custom wood floors in intricate patterns. Here are a few examples that I would encourage my clients to steer clear of (if you care about the resale value of your home at all):
