Dilemma: How can I choose flooring that complements my current interior?

Sometimes you are lucky enough to be able to change the entire décor and design of one room at once. This means that you can tie all the different aspects together and create a coordinated and cohesive look to the entire space.  

However, this is not always the case, and there are also times when you need to replace your flooring, but you don’t need to replace the rest of the room. While this is still doable, it can come with its own headache. 

The biggest one is how you can make sure that your flooring choice will complement the rest of the interior of your room?  

Make it neutral 

If your room is styled with bold and bright colours, you may want to ensure that your flooring choices are slightly more muted and natural than the rest. Wood is a great way to try and make sure that your flooring doesn’t stick out too much, especially if you go for the lighter coloured woods over the deeper coloured ones.  

Be bold 

We have already looked at how you can choose the neutral flooring to match in with a bolder coloured room, but what if your room itself is neutral. Of course, neutral flooring will still work, but the good news is that you can also use bolder flooring to bring a touch of warmth and colour to your space.  

Embrace the differences  

Whilst it is excellent to choose the flooring that will blend in seamlessly with the rest of your room, this doesn’t mean that you have to completely and utterly match. Sometimes, you can have a coordinated look that is still different. You just need to embrace these differences and know that they are okay.  

As you can see, it is possible to add flooring to a room without having to worry that it is not exactly going to add to the overall design and décor of the space. You just need to carefully consider what you want and how it will work with the rest of the space.
