Our guide to pairing floors with interior colour palettes
Moduleo luxury vinyl flooring helps create the space you dream of. We explore some of the most popular colour themes of the moment.
Finding the perfect floor to complement your redecoration colour scheme
Creating inviting interiors is an art form, so when we decide it’s time for a home decoration overhaul the process of selecting the perfect floor to pair with your chosen colour scheme can feel quite daunting. What kind of atmosphere do you want to create? How will the furniture fit into the new scheme? How do you avoid overpowering the space? Will this year’s hot colour trend quickly go out of fashion and leave your room looking dated? The questions start to stack up when major redecoration is in the offing, and rightly so – we want to get it just right!
Flooring has a significant bearing on the aesthetic and colour themes of an interior space. Our luxury vinyl flooring (LVT) offers an abundance of colours, designs and patterns to choose from, helping you to create an interior foundation with endless potential combinations. To create a cohesive aesthetic, every aspect, including the flooring, should be considered with equal importance. This guide is here to inspire you, to conjure up some new ideas, and hopefully steer you in the right direction.
Nordic hues have been popular for a while now, but you can add a contemporary twist by incorporating sharp shapes and darker tones.
A dark kitchen may sound overwhelming at first, but you can make a style statement by contrasting jet black walls and appliances with a warm and gentle, light oak flooring shade, such as Select Brio Oak 22237. This contrast helps to brighten the space and ensure the dark, moody palette doesn’t overpower the room.
When executed effectively, the Scandi-noir theme evokes a high-end aesthetic and can add an element of luxury and class to any room.
From wall colours to soft furnishings, jewel tones have become a staple in many homes. A vibrant shade of teal blue or emerald green pairs perfectly with warm, dark oak, wood-effect shades of flooring, adds a sense of elegance and serenity to any room.
Such dramatic colours make a bold statement when used as an accent wall or even throughout the entire room. Painting your door architrave and skirting in the same colour unifies the effect. Expect to see amethyst, emerald and topaz take centre stage in living rooms this year.
The power of complementary colours
Pantone unveiled that they have selected two contrasting shades of the year for 2021. This year it’s ‘Illuminating Yellow’, a warm but vibrant and positive yellow and ‘Ultimate Grey’, a calm and solid contrast which will prove popular as we head into the spring, along with all it’s positivity and cheerfulness. Pantone describes these shades as “a marriage of colour conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting.”
Bright spaces that utilise strategic pops of colour have taken over from the neutral, minimalist look of yesterday, in favour of warm shades that can boost mood and increase happiness. Adding a pop of colour to the bathroom is an easy way for homeowners to incorporate this trend and add some energy to this usually stark room of the house.
Warm wall colours such as peach or lemon work perfectly in the bathroom alongside flooring with ashy, grey tones.
