Once your home’s color scheme is finalized, it is time to select a floor that complements it. This process is more difficult than it seems and can be overwhelming since flooring is the main foundation of your home.
Depending on whether you are looking to update the flooring in a bedroom, kitchen or mudroom, make sure you’re aware of the big picture. Experts recommend switching types of flooring at a natural divide and not letting more than two different types of touch at a cross path. Avoid contrast between rooms by sticking with shades that easily transition into each other rather than having an abrupt change in color.
One of the best ways to visualize a new floor in your space is by putting paint and flooring samples together to see how well they fit. This is a great time to try out different paint colors and floor combinations in different lighting. You may find your initial choices do not go well together, so it is important to see alternatives that are a bitter fit.
If you have a home with neutral colors, pick a floor that will provide good contrast. Dark hardwood floors look great with lighter-colored walls and vice versa. To brighten up your room, find furniture, rugs, wall decor or accessories with complementary colors. If you have already picked out your furniture, consider selecting existing colors from your chairs and couches for your flooring.
