Just as a single minute can change an entire life, a single change in a space's design can alter its whole aesthetic. But when you're talking new hardwood floors in the vein of Anderson's Virginia Vintage line, it's easier to understand how that's the case.Hardwood flooring, Engineered hardwood floors So, if you're looking for a project that's sure to revamp a room's look from the ground up (or the ceiling down), check out some of these suggestions. It'll only take a single stroke, but that stroke's a very broad one!

Hardwood flooring
When it comes to premium hardwood flooring, Anderson Floors long ago broke open a path to affordable, high quality floors to homeowners across the country. But there's really nothing comparable to the striking and original styles in the Virginia Vintage line. Each collection included under this masthead takes the very best of Anderson's more than half a century in the business and injects it with a heavy dose of innovation and inspiration. Consider the Crossfire collection: these maple boards, with their wide widths and beautiful textures transcend home design - they're fine art.

Giant bathroom windows
Large picture windows or bay windows will drastically change just about any room in your house. Letting in that much light is always going to reveal new angles, colors and characteristics in any spot. But there's no room where you'll notice quite so large a difference as the bathroom. Provided with a secluded location, improving your bathroom's natural light while giving it a killer view is always advisable.

Chandelier
Whether hung in the foyer or over the dining room table, chandeliers have always been a go-to for opulent lighting. But what they really offer is simple presence. Whether switched on or off, the right chandelier can make or break a room's aesthetic - so choose carefully. Something classical and glittery may not work with your style quite so well as a modern, more austere chandelier.

Indoor tree
Most folks have indoor potted plants, and once a year much of the population brings in a tree - but what about a large-scale indoor plant you keep year-round? Certain citrus, olive and fig trees can prosper indoors with the right care! And you can bet they really add a lot to room design.
