Are you looking to update your flooring and don’t know where to start? Wooden floors create a great backdrop to any contemporary interior but they can also function as a key aspect of a period home’s historic character.
What colour to choose?
White and pale grey wood floors are perfect for low-traffic rooms, and their light colour will enhance space in a small room brilliantly. Contemporary and light-reflecting they brighten up any area. They will however show up marks and dents pretty quickly.
Warm, honey-toned wood floors disguise dirt and create a welcoming feel, ideal for a large, open-plan space that you want to feel cosier. Less contemporary than lighter wood floor finishes, mid-toned wood is perfect for creating a relaxed, more traditional finish.
Dark wood floors will create a more formal, intimate feel in a room, but can also be used in industrial-style spaces for a smart, contemporary finish, especially if used as a backdrop to show off light-coloured furniture.
With everything from solid timber to reclaimed, to wood look-alikes, it can be difficult to know where to start. The team at Jim’s Floors are here to advise and inspire.
