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.

Area Rugs

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.

Dramatic Hardwood

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

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.
