Choosing The Right Floor Colors
The choice of floor colors are endless. If you want to choose the right floor colors for your house, here are some tips for you. The colour of your floor has a major impact on the feeling of space you get in a room. Warm or dark tones, like wenge, walnut or oak, tend to make large rooms seem smaller and cosier. Conversely, if you are cramped for space already, consider lighter, natural floor colors like beiges, light oak or maple to really open up a room. Throughout the day, the lighting in your room changes. Judging a sample colour at night, by artificial light, will give you a different impression than during mid-afternoon in the sunlight. Of course, light colours will give a dark room a sunnier feel. In bright spaces, with floor-to-ceiling windows, a dark or even black floor colour can add a dramatic edge.
Don’t choose your floor colors based on an empty room. Make sure it also matches the broader style and feel you want to give your interior. Natural colours create a neutral canvas, allowing your furniture to take centre stage. Red tones bring a sense of luxury and go well with heavy, colonial furnishings. In general, brown tints are the best match for a country-style interior.
