How to Match Your Floor to Your Furniture

Toned Looks

Darker toned furniture

Darker coloured furniture looks stylish and modern in any room, but what flooring matches it? Dark coloured furniture includes colours like navy blue, grey and black. Often, darker coloured furniture is made from metal and has a glossy or shiny appearance. With this type of furniture, a lighter toned floor helps offset the darkness. A laminate floor in a light grey, concrete style pairs beautifully with dark metal furniture.

If you have grey toned furniture, an imitation wood floor in a light colour looks great. Want the look of hard wood without paying hard wood prices? Here at TF, we have a wide range of imitation wood floors available. Our laminate and LVT floors are almost indistinguishable from traditional wooden floors.

Darker coloured furniture can look stylish when offset with a lighter coloured carpet. Why not try a pale neutral green from Lano’s Bamboo Touch range? Carpets are the perfect option for hallways, bedrooms and living rooms.

Choosing a lighter coloured floor when you have dark furniture will help make your room feel airy and bright.

Pale furniture

Surprisingly, pale furniture also pairs well with lighter coloured floors. This can be the perfect pairing if you want to make your space feel bigger. Smaller spaces can look light and airy when this pairing is used. Add pops of colour with your décor to make the sure the space doesn’t feel too washed out. This pairing also means that you can experiment with patterned wallpaper to add personality to your room.


Wooden furniture

Wooden furniture has a timeless look, making it is easy to see why it is so popular. The rich tones of wooden furniture suits a wide range of flooring designs and colours. Dark wood vinyl flooring can look great with oak or pine furniture. You can even match your wooden furniture with an imitation wood-style floor. Experiment with contrasting different grains and types of wood to add interest to your room. Add texture with other materials like wool cushions or metal shelves.
