Hey guys, I'm building a house, and I'm trying to use a different floor pattern for each room I have.  I'm hoping you all might have some ideas on what floor patterns to use.  I already have a checkered obsidian/wool and wood/wood plank
pattern in place.

This basically:

Just use black wool instead of obsidian. It's much easier to get and spawns naturally on sheep. As for the wood checker, I can't say I like it, it looks too similar to eachother.

I tried that crafting table pattern, except with chests instead of wood.  Looks pretty good, I'll put pics up later when I finish.

You could use a sand or sandstone "rug" with cobblestone lining the sides. Maybe even a little bit of mossy cobble tossed in for variety.

Also, stone half-steps are always in style. You could checkerboard that with regular stone and it will look pretty good.

If it's on SMP, you could set up the Elevators mod with different floor choices and rotate through them at your leisure.

I always liked sand and lapis checkered. It looks good in deserts. If you're low on Lapis you can make blue wool...which requires lapis.
Damn.

But you can get a LOT more wool out of a lapis block than 1.  9 lapis per block, 1-3 wool per sheep. 1 lapis block = 9-27 wool blocks. Just dye the sheep before hitting them.

could be sand, or sandstone....

My personal favorite floor though...

Dig a extra layer deep, make a basin out of fire-proof material, and do this....

(I'm making a 128x128x20 building with 4 massive hallways like that, and I'm doing it SSP with no inv edits or mods... Its hard... I can't find any more roses... at all...)

but anyway, that's what I'm thinkin. also glass ceilings that are actually glass floors for the next level up are sweet.

In the throne room, in my castle, I used an pattern that I worked out on grid paper first.  If you draw axes through that ceneter dot, it's symmetrical both ways.  I was trying to get an effect sort of like a head to toe fleur de lis.

I used this pattern in my courtyard, just to break up the monotony:

Also, if you use just plain wood it gives a nice parquet effect.

Grass and Stone(cobble) looks remarkably good checkered

sandstone for the floor is completely awesome.

I just did wool lined with sandstone edges for my latest building (with woodplank pathways.)

These blocks look great, blend well with other blocks, and are fireproof:

snow block
obsidian
chest
workbench
sandstone
sand
lit furnace (if you have INVEdit, use 62) these also light up a room very nicely w/o use of torches.
smoothstone
smooth double slab
Lapis lazuli block

These blocks look nice with only certain other blocks

bricks
gold blocks
iron blocks
note blocks
Mossy cobbles

These blocks look great but are not fireproof or are griefer heaven

coloured wool
grass
Wooden planks
Wooden logs
Glass over water or lava

I love that park on top.

OT: cobblestone and smoothstone compliment each other nicely, depending on your texture pack.

I personally love sandstone/wooden planks and sandstone/smoothstone combinations.

Sandstone / workbench looks great and lets you craft wherever you happen to be standing.
