Many homeowners shy away from colorful flooring, choosing to stick with neutral options. Neutral is a safe choice, and there are a lot of design mistakes to be made when daring to go colorful. That’s no reason to avoid it completely, however! Floor Coverings International® of Vancouver has listed a few of our favorite stylish ways to add color to your home.
If you want to add a splash of color without committing to an entire floor, area rugs are a great option. Over a neutral base, bright area rugs with dynamic patterns can create visual intrigue. This is the perfect way to spruce up a neutral flooring. You can mix patterns and colors for a complex, creative approach. Or, go with solid-color area rugs for a modern and eye-catching look.
Hardwood is available in a variety of brilliant shades – reds, almost-black, and rich browns. Brazilian cherry has a vibrant red coloring. Mahogany hardwood has a deep, rich, reddish-brown hue. Ebony wood flooring ranges from dark, saturated brown to nearly black. For an even more dramatic shade, hardwood can be stained various colors.
Painted flooring opens up a whole world of creativity for your home. Explore different colors, patterns, and designs without worrying about making a permanent mistake. To kickstart your creative spirit, consider solid-painted flooring in a soft pastel. Or, if you want to go bolder, individually painted hardwood planks. You can even paint your own illustrated scenes straight onto your floor, which can be a fun and playful option for a kid’s room.
