What’s the right colour for your floor?

wood floorYou can’t go wrong with installing wood floors in your home. Hardwood floors are beautiful to look at but they don’t stand alone, they need to complement your walls, interior design and colour scheme.

What if you choose a random colour?

If you randomly choose a colour just because you like it without considering the existing look and appearance of your home, you’ll be disappointed with the results later. Before you know it, you realise you just lose a considerable amount of time, money and effort on your flooring project. You don’t want that, do you? Then, you should choose the right wood colour for your floor.

Choosing the right wood colour

Today, wood floors are available in so many colours which mean that there is something that can match just about any designs and ideas you have. While it’s good to be creative to try something new, when it comes to choosing the right colour for your wood flooring, there are certain guidelines to follow in order to avoid making costly and embarrassing flooring mistakes.

Here are some tips for you follow:

  • Room size, ceiling height and wall colour should be considered. The colour of your wood floor should complement them to get quality results.
  • Avoid using dark wood colours in small rooms with dark walls as this will make the room look gloomy.
  • Dark wood colours are a good choice since they can bring out the warmth in other elements of your décor.
  • For low ceiling rooms, go for lighter shade of wood colour.
  • Go with colours that contrast and complement your existing colour scheme. Don’t choose the same colour for your wood floor and furniture.
  • For classic look, go for natural unstained wood, they’ll go well with your dream design.
  • For chic and modern interiors, go for darker and black tones.

While your personal preference is very important, it should not be your only deciding factor.
