Flooring The key to creating a Scandinavian interior

Quick-Step Variano Painted White Oak Extra Matt room


White is the ideal basic colour for a Scandinavian interior, for both walls and flooring. Choosing a blank foundation allows you to create an atmosphere of spaciousness and serenity. A floor in a light hue creates an optical illusion of space in rooms with ceilings lacking in height. A ‘fresh look’ ambiance is typical to houses in the High North, while the interior still reflects the owners’ personal tastes. By choosing light colours as a foundation, you can easily display your personal mementos and photographs without producing a cluttered result.

White wooden flooring is often the first thing that comes to mind when you picture a Scandinavian interior, and that is absolutely the best, classic point of departure for a house in this style. The white finishes of Quick-Step Variano timber floorboards such as the Painted White Oak Extra Matt are composed of smaller pieces of wood to create a playful, yet streamlined and light foundation.

Streamlined white planks with the convenience and affordability of vinyl: the white finishes in the Quick-Step Livyn Essential Collection such as the Patina Oak Light White and the Painted Oak Light White combine the best of two worlds. The Essential Collection is renowned for its realistic wood look and texture. A big plus point: this vinyl is fully water-resistant and can be laid in wet areas such as halls, bathrooms and kitchens

Splash of colour

Finally, give your interior a lively finishing touch by adding bright splashes of colour with a few pillows, lamps and designer accessories in vivid hues. Graphic art posters or designer candlesticks with brightly coloured candles are very popular among Scandinavians, and it is precisely these details that make this style so unique and personalised!
