You’ll spend even more time looking at your floor – it’s everywhere and will have a considerable impact on the overall ‘feel’ of your living space. You may prefer ceramic tiles, carpets, floorboards, natural stone, laminate, or vinyl, and you may like to choose a combination of both. You may prefer hardwood flooring for your living room, porcelain tiles for your bathroom, marble for the kitchen and carpets for the bedroom. The combinations are limitless.
Of course, part of the decision will also involve choosing the right colour. Light coloured flooring, for example (such as white or cream coloured tiles), tend to make your rooms seem larger – this also may be handy if your house doesn’t receive much natural light. But you may also want to colour your floors to match other floors in the house or match the walls and furniture.
If you’re not sure what you prefer, consider hiring a stylist as they can advise on the entire colour scheme for your new home from the floor up.
