Think about the lighting.
When you get home with a selected few colour samples, view them during the day and the night – and think about sunlight that may enter the room. When you see the colours at night under artificial light this will give you a different impression about which colour you would prefer for your flooring.
Choosing the colour of your flooring will have a big impact of the feeling of space you get in your home. Lighter natural floor colours are known to create a feeling of a larger spaces and really opens up a room. Alternatively darker tones can create a warm and cozy smaller feeling space.
Will your furniture clash?
Keep in mind the colour of such things as curtains, the lounge suite and furnishings such as coffee table, television unit and dressers. Also ensure the colour doesn’t clash with your kitchen cupboards. Most coloured furniture match with dark or lighter coloured flooring – however if you have red or mahogany furniture it may clash with some flooring colours.
