How to Pick New Furniture Based on Your Flooring

Posted on July 28th, 2014 by

What are two things that can make your home look brand new? Flooring and furniture. Even better is when these things work hand-in-hand to accent each other, creating an aesthetically pleasing home space. However, if you don’t have it in your budget to get both and are just looking to update some outdated pieces of furniture or décor, here are some tips to help you revamp your living space while making sure it all still blends well together.

Tan Carpet
You can choose all sorts of furniture to go with a tan carpet, whether it is in your living room, bedroom, or den. Dark wooden furniture looks great on this popular flooring choice and adds a bit of elegance. You may also want to choose dark leather or suede couches and love seats to go along with this type of flooring for a bit of dimension in the color scheme.

Dark Hardwood Flooring
Dark hardwood flooring looks great with just about anything. You can choose dark furniture for a seamless sea of color or go with light furniture that will contrast the dark tones. Light colored walls look great with dark flooring too and an accent wall in white or beige would pair well with mahogany flooring. This type of wood flooring will look stylish paired with both modern furniture and old vintage antiques.

Light Colored Laminate
Light colored laminate can look amazing as a kitchen flooring option due to its affordable aesthetic appeal, durability and water resistance coating. You can choose white oak cabinets and a light colored counter top to go with this flooring to stick with this year’s whitewashed, open and light kitchen trends.
Light Hardwood Flooring
Light hardwood flooring looks amazing when it is paired with dark furniture. If you use light colored hardwood in your living room, try picking out a dark colored couch with bold colored pillows to add a splash of color. Consider this your living room’s statement piece and avoid adding excess splashed of color all around the room, which could be distracting.

Green Tile Flooring

Green tile flooring is a beautiful choice for your home and one of the most popular flooring options available in 2014. You can choose from porcelain, ceramic, or stone tile. Furniture with a white finish is the perfect choice to go with a green floor. Light colored wood furniture will look great with it too, balancing out the radiance and color in the flooring.
