What colour wood floor should you choose?

There are so many choices out there when it comes to wooden flooring that it can be a daunting process trying to decide which one to buy. With such a huge range available and so many different sellers, it is a good idea to carry out a bit of research first into sellers and their product ranges. Completing this task early on will help to whittle it down so there is less to choose between later.

Where to begin

First, try to find a company that has predominantly positive customer reviews and check whether they will send samples to your home. Computer screens can play tricks on the mind and images are not always 100 per cent accurate to the true colour of the wood. It is also far easier to make a choice in the comfort of your own home with a sample to check against your own décor and without a shop assistant in the background trying to pressure you into a sale. Then, you can take as long as you need and make a decision when it suits you.

Colour checking

Once you have found a company that will provide samples of laminate flooring, it may be worth checking whether they have a limit on how many samples they will send at one time. Don’t be afraid to order samples in a variety of colours. Generally, most companies will be very obliging when you request samples. After all, the more helpful they are, the more likely they are to gain a sale.

Most laminate flooring companies will also have websites that can also offer valuable advice on choosing colours. There are also various sites available online offering further advice on choosing flooring colours, how to check any samples you receive against décor and furniture, and the importance of doing so
prior to making any purchase.

The final decision

Once samples have been received and all colours have been checked against furniture and décor, all that is left is to argue over preference and then finally make that purchase and part with your hard-earned cash. Ultimately, if you take some time early on to do a little research and follow the advice on colour checking, the final decision should be relatively pain-free.
