The installation of wooden flooring in Auckland is a financially sound decision for every homeowner who wants both practicality and stylish design integrated into their furnishings around the home. It’s the go-to choice in the interior décor world and with good reason too, it’s a reliable and sturdy addition that will last a lifetime with minimal maintenance. However, even though wooden floors are such an attractive option for the modern home, many are still hesitant. This can be attributed to the fact that, although wooden floors remain timeless with a high-finish – they can easily feel like the overly common choice.
For the homeowner who wants to create a space that stands out amongst other homes, with a completely new look, wooden floors can seem rather bland in comparison. But there are many ways to ensure your floors remain exceptionally different especially when you use these simple design tips to enhance them.
1) Think About The Colour
With so many options available in terms of colours and tones, the choice really is up to you. Practically, light colours can make space appear bigger but are also more likely to highlight dirt and darker colours and can be comforting but similarly show dirt more vividly. When choosing colours, try to stay in between the spectrum. Choose a colour with a combination of tones to avoid looking plain and even consider the effect that texture will have on the overall look of your floors.
2) Transition Well
Although wooden flooring can create a beautiful flow throughout the home, some may have different floors in other areas to create a design contrast. Simply adding a border to trim the wooded area, can clearly demarcate the different floors without feeling obvious and forced. Transitioning can help to add a finishing accent cleverly, without much effort.
3) Create A Border With Wood
There will be spaces in your home that will require intricate planning to fit wooden flooring into corners and doorways. To maintain the effect of wooden floors in the home, simply use the planks themself to create a border in those areas in a different direction. When installed by a professional, they can transform the entire space without excessive design installations to minimise the impact of a corner or doorway.
Your home can still stand out with the addition of wooden flooring in Auckland and your hesitation needn’t be the reason you miss out on a lifetime installation. Wooden floors can add a design element without homeowners trying too hard, and will be the most cost-effective flooring solution, in time to come, compared to other types of floors.
