Wooden Flooring Helps Create Right Texture
Wooden flooring has been singled out as one of the key factors in making a living room feel comfortable and cosy. Dina Arslanouk is the Assistant Manager at IDdesign and she says that wooden flooring and choosing the right colours for the décor is vital to creating the right atmosphere in a living room environment.
“Wooden flooring, textured wallpapers and designed gypsum ceilings are great texture boosters” she says. “Texture brings a sense of depth, interest and contrast to a living room and is the life of our interiors. It is an often overlooked element in interior design, even though it has the ability to add a powerful yet subtle dimension to any home.” Arslanouk adds that the more detailed the texture and the darker the colour, particularly when it comes to wood panelling in wooden flooring, the more warmth the décor appears to give off.
Arslanouk believes that the look of a living room needs to be balanced out, however, between that warmer look and the cooler feel that can come from resin flooring or polished marble, as neither an all-warm nor all cool look is particularly desirable. “It’s best to have a combination of both and stick to a specific style or colour” she advises, adding that both hue and texture are important aspects in setting the overall visual feel of a living room or any other area of the house. Wooden flooring is also practical, of course, being so durable that it will be many years before it needs any form of wood floor restoration.
