A Helpful Guide to Elegantly Matching Furniture With Light Wooden Flooring

November 14, 2021

Matching light wooden floors with the right furniture style can seem like a daunting task, but only if you don’t know what you’re doing. A lot of things matter when it comes to wood, such as the grain, finish, undertone, and staining. Here we’ll help you understand how to complement the lightness of your floor with the rest of your decor.

  • Work with Similar Wood UnderTones

Light-toned wood flooring can have a cool and neutral undertone and it’s a great advantage when it comes to decorating the interior. Matching the furniture with this hardwood floor is easy because of the surface’s soft hue. You can choose any piece of furniture from any style, be it traditional, minimal, contemporary, or modern. Creating a complementing undertone for the floors and the furniture greatly enhances the look and feel of the room. 

  • Always Consider Grain Pattern

All hardwood floors contain grain and its uniformity and pattern largely depend on grading. Some floors have very distinct and consistent grain patterns, while others have a natural and very subtle touch. If your floor is following the same direction of the grain throughout, then you have to make sure that the selected furniture has a similar grain pattern to the floor. If your wood and furniture tones don’t match, finding something with similar grain patterns can create stylish contrast.

Create Contrast of Colors

Light hardwood floors can complement any colour scheme for interiors. The light wood floor provides a plain canvas and can look great with both minimal and traditional furniture styles.  It’s a perfect opportunity to add a bold-coloured statement or accent piece. You can also blend rustic with polished wood, or add a colour palette of mustard yellow or groovy teal. It’s wise to be mindful of the number of contrasts as it can get overwhelming and make the space feel less homey. A top-notch engineered wood flooring company can help you in deciding which floor will go right with your statement-furniture. 

  • Follow a Particular Theme

Following a theme can give your room a more cohesive look. For example, using neutral-toned hardwood floors mixed with light-coloured furniture can create a minimalist look, while light-coloured, unstained, or dark distressed hardwood floors can create a rustic feel to your room.

  • Break the Continuity with a Rug

To prevent the room from looking flat, you can add accessories such as rugs, carpets, or wall hangings. They can also help in tying the theme of a space together. 

The time of keeping everything matched is over, now a modern approach beautifully blends two kinds of wood with varied styles and colours for a more appealing look. A good wood flooring company in Dubai can help you in matching wood floors with any design approach you like to have for your space.
