Choosing the right furniture for your hardwood floor | Flooring Services London

There are a lot of options for wooden flooring nowadays; you can really come upon the best interior decision that will fit your taste. And although people are investing a lot of time in making the choice for their wooden flooring, they are spending much less for deciding on the furniture for their homes. If we select the correct furniture that best fits the flooring in our house, we will have the perfect design in our house. Here are some tips that may help us make the best possible choice:

The colour of your furniture has to be different from that of your wooden flooring. This will make the ambience in the room look vivid. If you still select to have the furniture the same colour as your flooring, then you risk that the interior of the room could become monotonous and dull. When it comes to selecting the furniture in your house, depending on the colour of the wooden flooring you have, your purpose should not be to try to make the perfect combination. You should try to compose the flooring and the furniture in such a way, in order for the furniture really stand out.

If you want to achieve a more modern and striking look in your home, then work on contrast when combining styles, colours and textures. If you want, you may insert a more extravagant colour, for example, red or orange, you may include it in the upholstery of the room. This will put a more contemporary accent on the whole room. Select furniture that is one shade lighter or darker than the flooring, to put the accent on it. If you do not to risk too much with the interior, use furniture and flooring that are from the same material, but in different shades.

The choice of the main colour of the room depends on how you want the room to look. If your desire is to make the room look bigger and more spacious, then you should select flooring and furniture in a lighter range of colours. The darker colours will make the room look smaller and tinier. If you want to use your old furniture for the room, and you still want the new floor to stand out, you can put the accent on the carpets, curtains, etc, which will complement the colour of the flooring.

No matter what type of furniture you have selected, you still have to be careful with your flooring, so that you can avoid any scratches. You have to use safety pads on your furniture’s legs, and that is how the risk of scratched will be lower. Avoid moving your furniture too much, or if this has to be done, try to lift them rather than slide them. We offer gorgeous wood flooring in a wide variety of colours.
