Wood Flooring Helps Create Spacious Atmosphere

The right kind of solid wood flooring can help to create the illusion of a more spacious atmosphere in a room, according to the experts. Rooms can look a lot larger than they might really be just with the implementation of a few simple design tricks and the correct choice of flooring can be a key part of that.

As well as advice on the savvy use of mirrors and cunning solutions for storage problems in order to prevent areas from looking cluttered, flooring also ranks very highly indeed for the impact that it can have on the perception of the size of a room.

Light-coloured flooring is recommended as being one of the best possible ways to create the illusion of spaciousness in an area as it tends to brighten the room as a whole and thus gives the impression of natural light. Clearly, the lighter the flooring option chosen, the larger the room will appear to be and that is one reason why white solid wood flooring is a very highly recommended choice, with anyone who is currently refinishing wood floors in a small room being advised to then paint the floor white.

Customers are also being advised that another good idea to maximize space in a room is to go for plain flooring, as patterned floorings also tend to create the perception of clutter.

The best option for small rooms, therefore, would appear to be a light solid wood flooring choice that only has very subtle grain markings.
