Choosing the right style wood flooring for your home


Bringing the outside in has become more of a trend over the past year or so. When you’re unable to go outside like you used too, it’s only fair to feel like you want to bring some of the outside into your home. And what better way that with the natural textures of wood? Here at Welch Mill Carpets, we stock a huge range of wood flooring, that includes the amazing Karndean flooring.

Our Karndean flooring showroom Warrington has more flooring than you can shake a stick at. Our flooring team are on hand to help you choose the perfect flooring for your home. But today, this blog is going to talk you through the three main wood shades.

Choosing the right flooring shade

  • Light and airy

The lightest toned woods are the perfect tool to introduce a sense of airiness and space into your home. Choosing whitewashed planks and driftwood that has been naturally bleached silvery grey shade by both the sun and sea offer can help bring interesting textures and patterns as well as barely there shades of colour.

These colours go hand in hand with other natural material such as wicker, wool and even tin. Think all things vintage.

  • Wonderfully warm

By making sure that you keep your room simple, bringing in a pared back approach to colours and furniture will really let the warmth of the wood shine through.

Think walnut, acacia and mahogany and you’re thinking along the right lines. These really are wood tones that fit perfectly within the majority of home interior themes.

  • Dark and dangerous

If you’re looking for some statement flooring then you’ll get that with a dark wood flooring. Industrial style modern homes are the perfect accompaniment to the deep sultry tones of dark wood.
