Why Wood Flooring Should Be The Place You Begin Your Living Room Renovation

This is a collaborative post

There is a lot to think about when you are thinking of a living room renovation. It’s usually a guest room too, so you’re often worrying about what others think of it. But before you think of the colour of the walls, the furniture you’ll put in, or even where to put the TV, you have to think about the flooring.

Why? Read on to find out.

It’s a big job

It’s the floor. Aside from the walls, it has to be the biggest aspect of your room. And we forget about it because we’re walking all over it, but it’s a big part of the renovation. That means it needs to be taken seriously, but it doesn’t mean it has to be expensive or difficult. There are lots of wood flooring options, and a lot are very affordable, like laminate or LVT flooring, and each offers its own benefits. A major benefit of both is that they come with click-in-place installation that is easy enough that you don’t have to pay someone to do it for you. But if you go with solid flooring, you’ve got an option that can’t be beaten aesthetically and will last for decades. Click here to see Wood Floor Warehouse’s range and see what’s right for you.

It’s a foundation to build from

Your floor is literally on the ground. Therefore, there’s nowhere to go but up from there. If you have seen a style of wood flooring that you love and haven’t even got as far as thinking about the rest of the space, you can put down your flooring and start from there. From that, you can think about what furniture would suit, what colours would go with the tone of the wood, whether you want to blend or contrast with your colour palette, etc.

On the other hand, you can go for a floor that won’t clash with any design, like mid-toned oak, so that you can play with the rest of the room without regretting your choice.

It can be the centrepiece of your room

There are a lot of options when it comes to floor style, so choosing what floor you put down doesn’t need to be the traditional mid-toned oak. That is a great option if you plan on switching things up often, and therefore it gives you a blank canvas to build off of. But there are so many really stylish options. In terms of colour, you can go with deep mahogany tones, light beech tones, muted tones, and even black and grey tones. Keep the eye guessing with mismatching wood tiles or look into the various styles of parquet flooring. Even better, mix the two for a fun pattern in the centre of your room.

It’s important it matches the rest of your vision

If you do have plans in mind for the rest of the room, you’ll need to think about your flooring options early. You don’t want to end up with wood flooring that goes against your vision. In a warm-toned room, for example, a grey flooring option would look out of place. Make sure you have the foundations down before you continue with your idea of what the room should look like.
