Nobody knows your vision and needs better than you do, but sometimes it can be difficult to properly communicate each and every aspect. Because of this, our team places an emphasis on your role in the process and encourages our clients to take an active role in their very own home redesign or remodel. When considering specific factors, there is a lot that should be taken into account. Fortunately, our team is here and ready to help. In today’s blog, your Houston, TX interior designers discuss a few things to keep in mind when picking out flooring, and what components complement others the best.
The Mood of the Room
First and foremost, gaining an idea of what you would like to convey in a space is essential. After all, the last thing you want is for a team to design a space for you and it be nothing like what you had envisioned in your head. When you are able to communicate major themes, components, and the overall mood, the true project can begin.
One thing to consider about mood, however, is that it can be embodied in both individual components (furniture, art, colors, etc.) as well as how all of these factors interact with one another. This applies to the flooring as well, and truthfully, it can make or break a concept. For instance, if you are going for an open and spacious feel, your best bet would be to utilize a lighter flooring, such as ash gray or birch.
There are a variety of options to choose from, and as such, there are a variety of options that can ruin the mood you are ultimately trying to portray. To learn more about this process, give our team a call today.
Functionality and Purpose
Another thing to consider about flooring includes the space’s functionality and purpose. It is at this stage that types of flooring should be considered, such as stone, hardwood, tile, carpet, and more. Flooring that can absorb liquids and smells – such as carpet – would be troubling in an area such as a kitchen or bathroom, for example, which is why the function is a necessary component to consider. Further, material such as tile or stone can cause sound to bounce off of the walls and floor, so this might not be ideal for a traditional living room.
Colors that Matter
Finally, you will want to choose patterns, textures, and overall color schemes that complement one another very well. This is true if you are redesigning a single room or an entire house, as compartmentalized spaces may make your home feel as if it were a dollhouse as opposed to your own. This takes coordination and an eye for design, and our team can help if needed.
