At Frank’s, we’re here to tell you that perfectly matched rooms are a thing of the past. It’s now more about a tonal approach, where shades complement one another but aren’t identical. Therefore, matching wood flooring to your furniture is pretty simple. 

When it comes to shopping around for the ideal wood flooring, it’s important to be open-minded while also considering the sort of look you want to achieve. 

You shouldn’t worry about trying to combine your oak dining room set with oak floors, or extending the already difficult search for the perfect shade of oakwood flooring to match your TV unit, bookcases, and sideboard. There really is no need!

The good news is that you can mix and match with a whole range of different combinations, depending on what you want to achieve. 

Perhaps you want to create a sophisticated urban feel, a snuggly den, or a country cottage-style look; all are achievable if you focus on the overall look as opposed to individual features.

If you have a room that is filled with dark-toned furniture, perhaps consider light-coloured flooring to brighten the mood and create the feeling of a light and airy space. Alternatively, pairing pale flooring with pale furniture can open up a room and help make it feel bigger.

Using a tonal colour scheme and interspersed pops of colour will keep your interiors looking unique and far from bland. Approach a neutral furniture palette with dark floors to create eye-catching contrast or pair dark floors with dark furniture to style a space that’s inviting.

When it comes to choosing furniture that harmoniously blends, darker tones are particularly effective. We recommend deep browns, reds, slate greys, and other natural wood shades work well too.

Oak flooring can be combined with retro style furniture, however the look can be made more cosy with interjections of warm blue or teal. Alternatively, give chestnut flooring a contemporary do-over with a neutral colour palette, such as creams and whites.
