With minimalistic decors such as those inspired by Scandinavian design and clean-cut finishes taking hold of the world of interior design, neutral flooring has grown ever popular with homeowners who are striving to achieve these styles. Some associate neutral colours with being dull or boring, but this isn’t the case! Not only do they open up your home and make it look more spacious but are so easy to match with all sorts of other colours, whether that’s on the walls or furniture. So, what are the best neutral floors?
White is a very popular choice for walls and ceilings, so why not have it for your floors too? It is often chosen because it complements nearly everything, opens up spaces, offers a fresh look and presents a calm and relaxing atmosphere. With this being said, I like the whitewashed wood. It offers a rustic and shabby chic appearance, something very on trend at the moment! If solid wood isn’t something you’re keen on or it’s out of your budget, the engineered wood is a worthy alternative or even a pale laminate.
Grey flooring’s popularity has risen significantly in recent years due to its amazing versatility. You can get away grey flooring in nearly every décor theme, from rustic to a clean-cut industrial theme – it will fit in beautifully with whatever your home has! It’s a truly timeless colour and hard to object to, beneficial when it is time to sell your home. One of the best things about grey flooring is that there’s so many shades you can chose from – all give a totally different look, so be aware of this!
Cream isn’t just for walls! This elegant colour will add a touch of sophistication to your home. Not only is it used for calming and a minimalistic look, but a wide range of styles – it won’t look out of place anywhere! It is very easy to combine with other colours and the perfect back drop for a room full of patterns and character. All flooring types come in cream as well, so it’s perfect if you’re wanting a more affordable option such as vinyl, but equally if you’re heart’s set on solid wood which present cream beautifully too.
As I’ve discussed, there are plenty of options when it comes to neutral colours. No matter which one you opt for, you’ll end up with a fantastically versatile flooring that will complement your taste perfectly.
