Let your floors strike the perfect balance between suitability and style by achieving harmony between hard floors and carpet selections.
1. Think About Each Room
Carpet lends a luxurious feel while providing soundproofing, making it ideal for living spaces and bedrooms.
High traffic areas like hallways, kitchens, and entries need a hardwearing floor. Laminate is a resistant, hardwearing material ideal for these places.
2. Keep Colours Consistent
The best way to create a beautiful space is to find floors that compliment each other. Your carpet and hard floors don’t have to be the same colour, but sticking to the same colour family is best. This becomes vital when you plan to lay carpet and hard floors close within a house, where an abrupt change in colour will be visually jarring. If you have laid a brown carpet in the living space, dark oak-coloured flooring in the kitchen will ensure that the eye isn’t interrupted from one space to the next, but the surfaces will be functional for both rooms.
3. Tone Is Key
Consistent tones around the home will ensure hard floors blend beautifully with carpet to create a well-designed space. Remember that warm tones are a great choice for making large spaces seem cosier, while cool tones will help make small spaces appear larger. Warm pine toned floors in the entry will blend perfectly with vibrant carpets to produce a friendly, bright space.
4. What You Can’t Mix
The right mix of carpet and hard floors across the house will serve to make spaces more functional without compromising on style. It is also possible to mix multiple types of carpet and multiple types of hard floors. The key here is having different floors separated by a closed-off room with a door. A door gives you a new space to incorporate a different look. You might choose to keep the same style of furniture and décor so that even if you change mediums across different rooms, the whole house will still feel harmonious.
