Put a Spotlight on Beautiful Floors
With all the beautiful hard surface flooring options available, it’s getting easier for homeowners to get a customized look and a beautiful floor. While a striking floor can speak for itself, adding in some extra highlights and flourishes can really make a floor pop! Here are some quick tips and tricks to put a spotlight on beautiful floors.
There are lots of different ways to add some synergy between the items in your space and the colors in your floors. On a basic level, your furniture, picture frames and other everyday household items can be used to create a complementary or contrasting look. If you want to add more specific items, plants can be used to accent natural colors on floors. You can also decorate with rugs, art pieces or antiques specifically brought in to help bring out your beautiful floors.
Light It Up
Different lighting options can help create a specific mood or tone with a simple flick of a switch. Light brightness will also have an impact on your floors. Brighter floor colors look good under white light and darker colors look better with warm colored lighting. When thinking about lighting design, remember that there are three different types of lighting that can be layered in each room.
Highlights an area/activity that you need brighter light to see (lamps of all kinds).
Fills a room with background light (ceiling fan lights, pendants or chandeliers).
Decorative lighting that highlights specific parts/pieces in room (picture lights, spotlights or decorative lamps).
Keep It Clean
If you’re not looking to revamp your room, any floor looks fantastic when it’s clean and properly maintained. Don’t let your floors lose their wow factor because of spills, stains and other cleaning issues. Use a good floor cleaner and spray mop for daily and weekly maintenance and add some polish when you want your floors to look extra shiny.
