When designing your new home or renovating your current home, choosing the interior décor and style is often the most exciting part of the process. It allows homeowners the opportunity to bring some personality into their space and will enable them to create a home they enjoy living in. This is why each accent must complement each other to create a comfortable setting rather than a contrasting and harsh living area.
From finding service providers specialising in flooring in Auckland to choosing colours that complement your wall – it can end up being a demanding process too.
With the expertise and years of experience The Wooden Flooring Company has acquired, here are some of our tips to help you create a beautiful and cohesive home.
1) Choose A Colour Scheme
It’s essential to give each room a colour scheme that works with the flow of the house. You can achieve this by taking into consideration the purpose of each room and the current installations. In this case, the hardwood floors should be taken into account with another colour scheme. Choosing two to three other colours that work well with the tones of hardwood flooring and including the wall paint is advised. This will give homeowners direction when completing their homes and make it easier to decorate each room.
2) Consider Going Lighter
Lighter colours on walls will blend well with the darkness of hardwood flooring. Though slightly contrasting, it is more comfortable for visuals. Neutral tones include whites, beiges, and browns. It is also better to instead paint before installing the flooring to ensure that both design elements work together.
3) Redefine Space With The Floor
Darker stained hardwood floors and light walls can make a space look smaller but can also be impactful and elegant to look at. Light coloured hardwood floors, on the other hand, increase the brightness in a room and can make it seem more spacious. Whichever design style you go for, light walls will still emphasise the room and enhance the look of hardwood floors – these are the accents that make a statement.
While hardwood floors can instantly enhance the look of a room, it can be challenging to match the rest of the interior décor with flooring and in particular the walls. Hardwood floors are not only a functional element but a design element too and should form part of the final look a homeowner wants to achieve. And though the interior design does not necessarily have to match completely, it should not clash either. It is essential to find the balance before installing your hardwood floors so that any changes or updates can be added quickly.
