What works best with hardwood floors?

Hardwood floors are one of the most solicited surfaces in any home, thanks to their timeless and warmth appeal. There are certain things you need to keep in mind when decorating wood floors:

Soften the space with rugs

Wood lacks the softness a carpet can give. Repeated footsteps on the long run can cause discomfort, so lessen the effect and any unfavorable impact on the area with rugs that add comfort.

Best style choices

Hardwood flooring is a natural setting in traditional interiors, but a beautiful juxtaposition against sleek modern decor. So, don’t be afraid to try bold things to add dramatic and contemporary elements. This will give your home a fresh but elegant look.

Mix, don’t match

Ignore any sensation that makes you think wood tones need to match. A modern approach to design purposefully blends the rustic and rough, with a polished and stained look. Don’t try to match the colors, but rather mix them in ways that combine and exhalt each other. If it is hard for you to picture wood color combinations, you can always go to Pinterest and search for fashion trends. Those will always open your eyes to new creations.

Seek for the light

If your home has dark floors, pull light into the rooms in a creative way with white painted walls, lighter cabinets, or patterned rugs that enable a rich contrast. At the same time, look for ways to allow natural light to enter into the space to showcase the elegance of your hardwood floors.

Flying bright colors

Enhance the beauty of your hardwood flooring by layering with painted pieces; painted islands, brightly colored bar stools or colorful accents. Every little detail counts and adds to the decorations.
