Help choosing wood flooring
June 26, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hi everybody! We need to select new wood flooring to go throughout house, replacing carpet and dated tile. I'm leaning to brown tones, I would really appreciate some darkness/color/product suggestions as I am overwhelmed by all the choices in store. It seems like a medium to darker brown tone walnut with no strong red or yellow undertones would be a timeless choice. But I really don't know, and thought some of you may have some ideas based on these photos. Our walls are a whitish color, and I'm thinking of painting all our oak trim white. I'm not sure if the current wall color will look good enough that way, so we may end up painting all the walls either a different color or a different white. I'm going to go for a light fresh airy feel with a young colorful fun vibe by adding bright colors in the drapes pillows rugs, etc. and some graphic maybe geometric content more modern large wall art pieces, add in some traditional sophistication with some brass and chinoiserie accessories. Anyways, back to the floors... Any ideas? : ) PS we are getting ready for a garage sale this weekend so pardon the mess, and as far as picking floors I'm not designing around any furniture as it will be replaced.
