All you need to know about complementing your wooden floors

The latest development in the design and construction world has ensured that you don’t really have to be extremely well-off to sport wooden themed floors in your homes.

So today, we’ll be sharing a few tips on how you can complement your wooden textured floors with the rest of your interior design!


1. Down to earth

One of the best ways you can complement your wooden floors is by using earthy colors to go with it. For example, if your floors have a certain type of a wooden texture, you can make it stand out by using grey area rugs, beige furniture and other neutral hues on walls and décor as shown in this image. Such colors have an inherent way of enhancing wooden textures, so they’ll become your best aesthetical friends.


 2. Some texture contrasts

Every type of wooden floor has its own specific grain which makes it eye catching. However, if your walls are completely plain then you’ll need a little texture contrast to make things interesting. The stylishly broken mismatched exposed brick accent wall in this image is such a great example of how you can be understated yet sophisticated with complementing your wooden floors with textures!


 3. Plain sailing

At the end of the day, wooden textured floors have a huge personality and when your spaces are small, going for big personality accent walls can make things claustrophobic. In such situations, you can go for the simplest solution: plain white walls. These are elegant, sophisticated and austere, and will definitely highlight the gorgeousness of your floors.


 4. When it comes to credenza

Complementing wooden textured floors to credenza can be challenging. You want both of the objects to stand out on their own, so it’s always best to design or choose the credenza that’s two or more shades lighter than the wood. It’ll be better if you can choose completely contrasting colors as well. Whites, beige and other high gloss laminate textures are a good choice for their finish.


 5. Wood on wood

If you want to complement your wooden floors with wooden furniture then you’ll have to think out of the box. These days, wooden composites are available in so many different textures that it can be easy to find matching and complementary textures. After selecting two, you simply have to decide which one you want on your furniture, and which one on your floors!
