How to choose a floor colour

05 October 2015

Of course, you can choose a floor colour based on your own very personal taste – but it could be good to understand how the choice of colour can influence the perception of the room.

You can play it safe and use neutral colours – they are timeless. Be courageous and fill your home with colourful energy. Or use dark ink nuances that provide a feeling of intimacy.

There are no rules for the choice of colour. But it helps if you stick to a maximum of four colours when decorating a room. Using more can cause the colours to cancel each other out.

What does the floor colour do for the room?

"Red and orange floors make a room feel warm and harmonious. These are also the perfect colours to combine with black furniture. Yellow and beige can make a dark room feel sunnier and create a zen atmosphere. Grey is also very harmonious and a perfect match to orange wood furniture so popular today. A black room combined with neutral colours can provide a wonderful contrast. Black is also very trendy today and is an elegant and timeless colour," explains Oke Nollet, Design Director at Pergo.

Trendy grey

Grey has become one of our classic floor colours that is predicted to be around for many years to come. As we have been able to see in one magazine after another, concrete is now in fashion. Floors with a feeling of concrete are a plus – but they don't need to be the genuine article. We can't all find the perfect industrial space. Consequently, laminate with concrete décor is an excellent alternative. & Wood flooring and laminate in tones of grey can also create a trendy industrial or urban feeling.
