What laying patterns can do for your home
Choosing a new flooring doesn’t have to be another chore. Don’t be afraid to have fun with it! If you want to put a spin on original themes and tones or use contrast to your advantage – now you can! Let’s discuss how your new flooring plans are quickly going to become a desire.
Laying patterns is great for making each room’s atmosphere specific to your needs. After all, flooring takes up so much space it only seems right to do something unique with it. So, start brainstorming. Do you want to get that eye-catching showroom feeling, or do you want to make a larger space feel quaint and cosy?
Every artist needs their palette
Just as with art, the colours you choose for your flooring will set the mood for each room. This is the same when choosing the type of material as it will either attract, reflect or dim the lighting you use in that room. To create the feeling of a bigger space, you should direct your palette towards lighter shades. If you’re searching for a warmer, inviting atmosphere then you should consider warm tone. Think mahoganys and chocolate!
As time goes on, it can be hard to choose a colour you think will still be “in” in 10 years’ time. That’s where neutrals come in… grey’s and cream’s give you the option to change the aesthetics of a room to get a specific mood. At the same time, it won’t leave you with the need to change your flooring too.
Now for the fun part…

Play around with tones from the same parent colour to add an abstract density. Choose planks with burned or stripped effects to give an earthy feel.
