Step Up Your Floor and Paint Routine!
Your Guide to Choreographing Flooring and Paint Colors Like a Pro
Coordinating floor and wall colors can feel like leading a first-time dancer through a complex tango routine, but fear not! There are a few trusty strategies to help you choreograph the perfect pas de deux.
Give it a Whirl!
- Dance with Undertones: Always remember to match the rhythm of your floor's undertones with your paint's. Does the floor favor a warm beat? Opt for paint colors that match its groove. And if it sways to a cool rhythm, pick paint colors that mimic this jive.
- Flow with neutrals: If your flooring is as adaptable as a Broadway dancer, like hardwood or tile, you're in luck! Such neutral dance partners can move effortlessly with a wide variety of paint colors. Go for a neutral paint shade that can keep up with your floor's groove.
- Swing with monochrome: Want to go bold without stepping on any toes? Consider the monochromatic mambo. This dance style employs different hues of a single color to create an eye-catching, unified look.
- Cut a rug with complementary colors: Now, if you're feeling adventurous and want to go bold with your paint, invite a partner from the opposite side of the color wheel. This complementary color tango can lead to a balanced, vibrant look.
- Mind the room's personality: Each room has a vibe, a style. When choosing your paint and flooring, opt for those that complement this character. Got a room that's as traditional as a classic waltz? Go for paint colors and flooring that match its sophisticated beat.
- Audition the colors: Like every grand performance, always give your paint colors and flooring options a dress rehearsal in the room. Different lighting conditions can make colors perform like a graceful ballerina in one light and a break dancer in the next. So, remember to test them out before finalizing your choice.
