How to choose a colour

Consider the size of the room. The colour you choose for your flooring will affect how the space feels. Dark, warm colours will make a room feel cosier and smaller while, if you are short on space, a lighter colour really open up the room.

It’s also important to consider how light enters the room. In a well lit room, you can either fill it with light with a pale colour or create contrast with dark tones. A dark floor in a room that doesn’t get much light will feel cosy but may verge on feeling stuffy or crampt if it's small or cluttered already.

Finally, try and keep your colour palette in line with the theme set by your furniture and the design of the room. Neutral colours will draw more attention to your furnishings, while darker colours will soak up more light and create a more blended picture with the right furniture.


A light floor will expand a room and make it brighter. These tones are great for making a limited space feel roomier and filling large spaces with light. They go especially well with expansive windows to create an open, airy room.


These moderate tones strike a balance between the bright, fresh feel of the lighter shades and the warmth of dark shades. Medium shades offer a brilliant contrast with white or cream walls while not being too stark.


Darker tones will generally give a room a cosy, snug feeling, perfect for a living room or other comfortable space. Dark flooring is fantastic for creating contrast in a room. Match lighter walls and furniture with dark flooring to create sleek modern lines to compliment the features of the room.


Grey colours make will make a room feel cool and relaxed whilst being understated yet sophisticated. Grey can also help coloured furniture or panelling stand out by drawing attention to these features, whether a bright red leather chair or a bold lime green vase.
