Light: If your home has a lot of natural light, you canuse darker tones in your flooring. If you have a naturally shaded home, it might be best to use lighter flooring in attempt to brighten your space. A good rule to remember is – lighter colours can make a room feel more open and spacious; darker colours can make a room feel more cosy and homely.
Purpose of the home: if your home is an investment, selecting a darker colour (or a colour with more character) will help hide any damages or stains. For carpet, this might be a textured loop pile or a 2-tonned fibre. For hard floors, this might be a timber look with more knots and variation in tones.
You: At the end of the day, you must live with your flooring decision. If you like grey, buy a grey flooring, if you like pink with purple poker-dots… well, you get the gist. If you want help and advice on what colour to select because you simply have no idea, you can always talk to a salesperson at Queensland Flooring Centre, and we can assist!
