So you’ve got your beautiful new hardwood floors installed. Now what?
We often get the question of what goes good with hardwood flooring when starting from scratch with your home’s interior decor. Here’s a few ideas to get you started.
Soften It Up
You don’t want to hide your hardwood floors, but a nice area rug can add appeal and softness to your room. The area rug can also become a focal point and tie everything in this particular room together. With the right texture and color, an area rug combined with the natural look of hardwood can really set off a room.
Mix It Up
Just because your hardwood floor has a sleek, polished look doesn’t mean you can’t go with some rustic furniture or decor. Mixing it up can bring in a modern approach to your room’s decor, so look for some ways to contrast your floors with your furniture.
Let Is Shine!
If you’ve got some darker hardwood floors, lighten them up with some natural light and lighter furniture. There’s many clever ways to pull some light into a room. Reflecting some natural light off lighter colored furniture will bring those dark hardwood floors to life!
There’s a lot you can do with hardwood floors with today’s decor. People are breaking the rules and norms of the past and really opening things up when it comes to decor, so try something new with those beautiful hardwood floors. You never know what you might create unless you try.
