Laminate flooring is a popular and inexpensive way to transform any home into a practical yet stylish space. When choosing the perfect flooring always consider the colours, textures and styles you already have.
The great advantage of laminate flooring is that it’s a great copycat of real wood flooring, but without the hefty price tag. Laminate flooring is also low maintenance, easy to clean, hard wearing and great for luxurious pads or busy family homes, full of people and pets.
There are many styles, colours and finishes to choose from when it comes to laminates such as golden oak, walnut, distressed, smooth and oil brush finishes. When choosing a darker laminate or carpet always make sure that there’s enough natural light to carry the floor with ease or you run the risk of your room looking dark and gloomy.
In previous posts we’ve talked about the sofa being the focal point of your room but equally your floor can be a focal point all on its own. The right laminate floor will be eye catching and subtle all at the same time. It will stand out but allow the other features of the room to shine through – all the while being extremely durable and stylish. Laminate flooring creates minimalism and allows you to accessorise with various furnishings, in both contrast and matching tones. Traditional oak creates the perfect canvas for bright and bold furnishings and darker laminates create added texture and character to larger rooms.
Colours set the mood and tone of a room so it’s key you get your flooring right, making sure it fits with all furnishings and colour schemes.
