Congrats! You’ve finally opened your own photo studio! You took all the classes, got the best equipment, and have done your time at other photo studios learning the ropes. Now you can finally create your own style, in your own photo studio.
Have you considered your flooring?
Despite what you may think, flooring can play a really important role in the look and feel of your pictures. A floor isn’t something that you just walk on. It’s part of the atmosphere of your studio and it can be a really handy backdrop or prop in your photographs. So have no fear! Let’s take a look at some of the amazing photographers who have purchased flooring from us and look at the decisions behind their stylistic choices!
Take for instance, Karen Roberts Photography who purchased Inhaus Urban Loft White Washed Oak for her photo studio. As a photographer from Georgia, she expresses great love for the southern lifestyle and coastal flair.
This weather-worn, white flooring is absolutely perfect for her style, and looks fabulous in her photos! She has transformed the flooring into an element of the photograph. If you take a look at her work, you will see it used in a variety of styles and artistic ways.
Shabby, Yet Chic
With a rustic feel in the studio, Genie Leigh Photography opted for the grey-tinted Kronoswiss Noblesse Shabby Chic. Another white-wash-esque floor that is crazy versatile for photographers. It can be played down as shabby, rustic and worn, or it can be played up as cute and chic.
Even this small touch of flooring is enough to create a cohesive photograph. Think if the floor was a regular yellow-brown, plain jane floor or even a plain white fabric back-drop. It would not tie in nearly as well as it is here. Genie Leigh Photography is really taking the look of the floor and making it add an extra dimension in their photos.
Pure, Bright, Fresh
Hailing from So-Cal, Maxine Evans Photography, is a celebrity baby and newborn photographer who has been published in People Magazine, the Bump, and much more. When she decided it was time for new flooring, she came to us and chose Quick-Step Eligna White Brushed Pine for her main studio and newborn studio spaces!
Choosing a white floor, her studio has a bright, clean, and fresh look that is perfect for precious newborns and glamorous soon-to-be mommy shoots. The white flooring creates a natural reflective surface, brightening her model and bathing her in soft light. While you may think white laminate floors will be hard to keep clean, as long as you keep a regular maintenance schedule, your floor’s brilliant appearance will leave your clients feeling impressed.
Soft and Sweet
Another photographer specializing in newborn and children, Lauren Marie Photography chose Kronoswiss Rigoletto White! Just like we mentioned above, white is a widely popular flooring choice for its versatility and it’s ability to reflect light.
Soft, white flooring can create a pure, innocent feeling which is perfect for newborn and children photography. It can also be used to create flattering soft light for subjects, which is good for anyone! An added bonus, Rigoletto White is a square-edge flooring, meaning there are no nooks and crannies for spills and dirt to get trapped in. Clean-up of this floor is a breeze, making it a practical and stylish floor for a photo studio with props, children and foot traffic.
What If I Can’t Afford A Full Renovation?
No problem! Laminate flooring is quick to install as a backdrop. With the easy click and lock installations, you can purchase 2-3 boxes of flooring and create a room scene set-up quickly and efficiently! Just lock the flooring together in front of a pre-made backdrop, without any underlayment, and you have yourself a quick and easy floor! And when you’re done with the photo shoot, just unlock the floor and put it away. It’s a practical choice if you want to create many different styles with your photos. You can purchase many different designs, such as rustic, coastal, grey, black, etc. for that exact look you need.
Whether you do a full installation or buy different styles for easy switching, laminate flooring is a good choice for photo studios for more than one reason. They’re durable, easy to install, and good for quick clean ups. If you’re own a new photo studio space that needs a little TLC, or if you have owned a studio space for a while that needs a fresh new look, consider it carefully. A unique floor can add so much more than a walking surface!
