This Breakfast Room Design Board is the perfect neutral, high contrast design for a bright casual space! This post is sponsored by Carpet One, however all opinions are 100% my own!
Our breakfast room is currently a work in progress. It’s our last major renovation in this house! We still have little things to finish up, but no more demo or complete remodels for us! This room is where my kids eat breakfast. It’s right off the kitchen, and it’s FULL of natural light (my kitchen not so much). I really wanted this to feel almost like a sun room, or rather just a cozy place that’s comfortable to hang out in. The kitchen is after all the heart of the home. I’d venture to say this space gets as much use as our living room! So let’s talk design. Today I’m teaming up with Carpet One to share this breakfast room design board and discuss some flooring trends of 2020!
Flat Lay Mood Board for a Breakfast Room
Design boards are seriously one of the funnest things to create. I typically do them digitally, but creating a real life inspiration out of textures and tones is far more fulfilling!
Let’s take a look at what our breakfast room looked like when we bought this house.
If you follow along on IG you’ll know I replaced all those cabinet doors and can’t wait to get the new hardware up.
White Oak Flooring
Now if I could choose ANY flooring for our home I would definitely go with something of a lighter tone like the White Oak Species – Monterey Heights in Stampede. It’s everything I love in design right now – slightly rustic, modern, clean, and minimalist while still providing a little warmth! Which I definitely think fits in with some of the trends I’m seeing!
Monterey Heights – When it comes to hardwood, each and every piece it truly unique. With subtle board to board color variations, this Rustic River Hardwood floor adds rich character while the neutral tone adds a modern vibe.
Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Another tone I was drawn to from Carpet One’s Trend Selections was the Charleston Place. This is actually the inspiration for our breakfast room table!
Charleston Place – Nothing says elevated style like a beautiful herringbone floor. With Invincible H2O’s new herringbone luxury vinyl, you can get the look of a custom herringbone hardwood floor with the waterproof durability of Invincible H2O. This neutral shade lets the unique installation shine, but for a bolder look, the colors available can also be mixed and matched.
I also added the Lees Studio Pier 5 in Canoe to the mood board because I love the texture of this carpet! I won’t actually use carpet in this space, but I hope to achieve that type of texture and tone in this space. Maybe we will use this in our bedrooms one day because I love the subtle design pattern!
Pier 5 in Canoe – The perfect combination of fashion and comfort, this Lees Studio carpet features a deconstructed cut and loop pattern that mimic the elegance of nature. Multiple tones create textural dimension helping this flooring make a subtle, sophisticated statement. Nylon 6/6 fibers will ensure that this floor stays stunning for many years to come.
I found this old table on Facebook Marketplace and I’m planning to bleach it. Wood bleach is something I’ve never used before, but I’m excited to give it a shot and brighten up the look of the table! Here’s a little progress photo from my IG Stories a few weeks ago with a peek at the table in it’s current condition.
I’ve recently shared that I feel like I’ve struggled through my own personal style while renovating this house. After lots of trial and error I’ve finally landed on a high contrast with an organic touch. It’s sort of a modern/rustic/minimalist.
Minimalist Breakfast Room Design Board
I really love the direction this room is going and can’t wait to see this design board come to life! If you have any remodels planned, or perhaps just looking for some inspiration, definitely check out Carpet One’s Top 20 Trends of 2020.

This is going to be fabulous! I’m drawn to white oak as well, although I love my wire brushed mid tone hickory flooring and it’s still beautiful after almost 12 years with dogs and kids and grandkids and Mr B, aka Pig Pen. It hides dirt so well I often forget to vacuum it. But white oak is so beautiful. If I get another home I’m def doing white oak cabinets and flooring. I’ve had good results using plain old household bleach and water to bleach wood. It’s lots less expensive and I actually like the result as much, if not better. One trick I learned is to sand the surface so that the bleach can penetrate the wood. And use vinegar water to neutralize after you get the tone you want. I use a 50/50 mix of water to bleach. And sometimes use full strength vinegar to neutralize. I’m interested in your opinion of the wood bleach kit.

A beautiful and spectacular interior is not necessarily an expensive renovation, exclusive furniture and a complex layout. A memorable, bright detail of your apartment can be a non-standard kitchen apron or an original floor. If you have a problem with the ideas, I advise you to read more about the award winning interior design singapore. To create a beautiful design, you do not always need to spend money on major repairs: sometimes it is enough to cope with individual shortcomings.
Thank you for sharing your results, it’s amazing! I do not often rely on trends, but rather follow my own taste, because the house should only please you, it is your place of strength, and everything should be perfect. I found a lot of good options for finishing the floor on Pinterest, and also selected qualified contractors who will be able to make everything a reality, you can come to this URL to learn more about them
It combines all the design trends I adore right now: it’s clean, minimalist, and little rustic while still adding some warmth.
