There’s the old adage of if walls could talk but does anyone wonder what our floors would say if given the same opportunity? We often look to paint colors to set a room’s tone, missing what’s beneath our feet to tie the look together. Whether your interior style is dark and moody or light and airy, your floors can have a lot to do with the end result.

Investing in your floors can be a great way to not only bring a room back to life, but also increase the value of your home. Let’s dive into some of the most common tips to keep in mind for selecting floor colors.

Size is Important

Big, small, or an awkwardly shaped room with too many windows—the verdict is still the same. You have to factor your room’s size when deciding on what floor color to go with. If you’re looking at a larger room, consider using dark or warm tones. They tend to make a room feel more intimate and cozier.

And the opposite is true of small rooms. Avoid picking dark woods that might make an already small space feel that that much smaller and cramped. Lighter colors and natural floors can really open up a room without feeling like you need to downsize your furniture.

Material Girls (or Boys)

A room’s accessories, furniture, and wall art should complement the floor selection—and vice versa! Are you looking to exude luxury and top-tier taste? Darker furniture and sophisticated, bold colors would play into that look. Those style choices go well with darker floors, whether hardwood or vinyl. If you’re looking to design a room that epitomizes tranquility and light, look for wall colors, furniture, and fabrics that are on the lighter side and complement natural hued floors.

No matter the taste, furnishings and finishing touches should work well together and give your home the character that makes it unequivocally yours.

No Buyer’s Remorse

Avoid making costly and semi-permanent decisions with a blank canvas of a room. You might feel a bit like Mary Poppins pulling knick knacks out of your purse whenever you hit a Home Depot or Ace Hardware, but having things like cabinet wood, paint color swatches, or even throw pillows can be handy when looking at the big design picture. Sometimes, visualizing a complete look isn’t enough and you don’t want to find out after your reflooring is complete that the room’s flow is off.

Let There be Light

A floor—a whole room, really—can look different in the nighttime vs. the daytime light. Consider what room you’re redecorating and what it would look like at different hours of the day. Mid-afternoon light hits differently than the early morning light. Is your room covered in natural light or is it mostly dark unless lamps are incorporated? May it feel a little pedantic to approach floor colors through this lens? Maybe. But being thorough and having a clear picture will ensure that your hard work and budget are valued—and reflected in the result!

At the end of the day, the most important thing is to let your personality, style, and preference be strongly represented in each room of your house. Like puzzle pieces that fit together, interior design should come from a place of unique taste and strategy.
