The flooring’s color in a room can contribute to the vibe of the space. The hues that you choose for the interior walls will either balance or magnify the floor’s effect. Flooring can come in a wide variety of materials and colors that range from reddish-brown to beige. If the room’s floor has more than one constituent color, remind yourself to coordinate with the room’s palette and do not solely rely on the dominant tone.
Warm Tones and Cool Tones
Inspect the flooring to determine whether it has a cool tone or a warm tone. If the undertones are orange, pink, yellow, or red, then it’s considered a warm tone. If the flooring undertones are more purple, green, blue, or gray, then you are working with a cool tone. Once it is determined if the flooring has a cool tone or warm tone, it’s best to match your paint with the same color tones.
Is the Flooring Light or Dark?
Take into consideration how dark or light the floor is. When dealing with light flooring, it’s best to stick to light paint color options that will create a bright space. Dark paint colors can be used to create a dramatic contrast to the light flooring. If the flooring is dark, light paint colors can help increase the feeling of spaciousness but darker colors can create the feeling of a cozy space.
Matching Interior Paint Colors with Laminate Flooring
Use a paint chart and place it against the floor if there are multiple shades present. Inspect the chart then identify the two major colors that are in the flooring. Select an interior color that belongs in the same genre as one of the major flooring colors while making sure that the interior paint color doesn’t clash. By doing this, you will be assured that the walls will blend perfectly with the laminate flooring.
Matching Interior Paint Colors with Wood Flooring
Wooden elements can bring a natural, warm feel to any room in your house. With the many wood species, there are a variety of undertones that can be used, ranging from ashy gray to red to yellow. Unfortunately, when trying to coordinate interior wall colors with the wood flooring’s tones can seem like a daunting challenge. It’s all a matter of determining how bold or subtle of a look you prefer for your space.
The best way to make sure that the flooring’s wood tones will coordinate with your interior walls is by selecting a neutral paint color. Whether the wood flooring has gray, orange, or even yellow undertones, they will all work well with neutral interior walls. White is often the most used as the neutral color of choice. It’s the idyllic backdrop is you’re trying to showcase the room’s wood tones. If white is too boring, there is always the option of using a cream or ivory, which is a softer option. Taupe or tan is also a great choice if you want a richer interior wall color.
