Australia’s leading flooring company, Quick Step, has unlocked the secret formula to interior design success. By carefully fusing the perfect furniture to the flooring, a harmonious and eye-popping relationship will foster before your eyes.
In order to create the right feeling in a room, you must not only take into account the colours of the walls, ceiling and floor.
The relationship between the colours of the furniture and the floor is also important for the atmosphere.
The floor should ideally be two tints lighter or a shade darker than the colour of the furniture. The floor and the furniture may consist of the same colour and wood type but it would then be best to put a rug of a contrasting colour between them.
Furniture of a very dark wood type such as a walnut is perfectly possible on a neutral floor such as natural varnished oak. Light white furniture will also have a beautiful effect here.
Light wooden furniture in combination with light walls and a light floor give a room a peaceful atmosphere. Too much tone-on-tone can however have a negative effect on the room.
