Wooden Flooring

Wood flooring is an extremely popular part of interior decoration. It is sophisticated, classy, and gives off an aura of tasteful luxury. It is very popular in places with colder climates, but it is increasingly being used in places with more tropical and warm climates due to its massive popularity.

Wood is different from marble. Marble flooring can look tacky and flashy, while wood retains its quiet elegance. When using wood in a space, make sure it is of good quality. Wood of superior quality is very obviously more elegant in appearance. When wood is cheap it shows.

Wood is normally not used when following minimalism as a theme of decoration. Do not use too much white and steel with darker wood unless you can contrast it cleverly. The light wood is what is mostly used for minimalist designs, whereas dark wood is used for warmer home spaces with reds and browns all around.

In colder countries, wood is normally covered by a lot of carpeting. Rugs and carpets are used for better heat insulation. It is a good idea to use a color palette of rust, orange, cinnamon and dull red to create a cozy homely feel. Do not use overly bright shades- instead use duller colors and contrast with brights and nudes to add maturity in design.

In a minimalist space, you can use either dark brown as an accent to all the light and airy space. Basic, sleek furniture and simple lighting can be offset by dark hardwood. On the other hand, the minimalism can be emphasized even more by using pale, light colored wood.

Wood can also be used to create an aura of wealth. In Romantic-themed homes with lots of artwork and neo-classical architecture, wood is a great option.

All in all, while wood is very common, it can improve the look and feel of a place dramatically. It is easy to clean and maintain and automatically adds a warm glow to any space.
