Many people are getting really enthusiastic when they plan to build a house, or design and refashion projects. This is the best time to combine everything with your own style and have everything done according to your own taste. This is the right time to show creativity, get inspired and discover your interior design talent. However, this is also the right time to feel very overwhelmed and stressed! Why who says the interior design and remodelling project is so easy and fun?
No matter what type of project you are undertaking, when the time comes to improve the home, there are two main aspects to focus on. The first is to decide the best colour that matches your taste, but it is also classic enough not to go out of style in a year, it is happy enough to live with it every day and feel glad and still has something special. Usually, the colour scheme of your home is determined by the colour of the wall. The other side that is important to pay attention to is the floor. Being a wooden floor blog, do not expect us to talk about anything other than wood floors, right? However, even when it comes to wood floors, there are thousands of decisions to choose from! As we have said, we do not blame you for feeling overwhelmed!
Now, when you have an initial idea of what combination of colours and wood floors you prefer to have at home, the next decision you must make is how you are going to combine them and this is where the great drama comes from! Here are some ideas for you that have already proven that they work well:
A neutral approach is a safe approach. Of course, bright colours and contrasts are definitely not anyone cup of tea. Given the frequency with which we all undertake home improvement projects, the colours and trends that are in fashion for only one or two years are definitely not an option. Of course, there are also color schemes that are very inappropriate for domestic places, since they bring a different emotional spark to relaxation, calmness and comfort so preferred. On the other hand, neutral and basic colors can be a bit boring (although it all depends on how you play with the decor and other accents), but it has been shown to be forgiving and "comfortable." It is also very easy to combine the colours of the neural walls with the neutral (or bolder and creative) wood floors! So, when you want something that works with everything, here is your answer: white, ivory, cream, tan, brown-grey.
From the comfort zone of neutrals to the danger zone of bold contrasts! That is right, playing with different colours and even different shades of families and groups can be really dangerous and turn out to be a total failure ... or a true discovery in the world of interior design! You need contrasting colours to make bold statements with the walls and floors and still draw attention for both, without one of them taking all the attention of the other, but also without finishing with a really overwhelmed room.
