You have already found their preferred style, but still unsure which flooring would round off the overall picture? We give an overview of the most popular decorating styles and matching floors. Inspired by an article of casando magazine to search after the appropriate floor. According to the style of living this a country house charm can convey, shine in the minimalist look, inviting to Scandinavian-style, or magnificently in the colonial-style look.
The country house style is popular, but for rural cosiness. Floral pattern, natural materials and a touch of garden in the living room – for the country house style is. Are usually made of solid wood furniture in the country house style and wear, worn look, and Shabby Chic let comfortable living space. So it is not too rustic, country-style relies on bright colors in pastel colors and natural colors. Matching accessories belong to every country house style décor, fresh flowers and branches, porcelain with floral patterns or decorations made of zinc or copper are real eye-catcher.
As the country house style relies on natural materials, it acts like a cast if you pursue this concept also at the bottom. The country house style is to combine best with real wood floors. Solid wood flooring in particular have an effect here. To maintain the natural look also at the bottom planks recommend oak, pine, spruce, or pine – oiled or waxed.
If you rebuild or rehabilitate and set up your home in a country house style, the right door frame can supplement the country-house feeling. The so-called ogee edge to the frame fits very well to country doors. Used used in old buildings as a design element, it can be used also in a country house style as a deliberate design element.
The Scandinavian style is undergoing a real boom in recent years. Light wood, friendly colours, natural shapes and minimalist design make up this set up trend. Scandinavian furniture design to convince mostly due to simplicity, as well as clear forms and structures. Particular emphasis is placed on the functionality of a piece of furniture, because it is intended to not only pretty to look at, but above all practical and its owner this offer real added value. Light wood from spruce, Birch or pine is the dominant material in Scandinavian furniture, which ensures comfort. Bright furniture are complemented by materials and accessories in friendly colours. In addition to flat materials in clear colors are also graphic and design elements of the Scandinavian furnishing style popular motifs from nature.
Also to this style, as natural wood floors fit best. Whether it’s oiled solid wood flooring or parquet – mainly light wood. Brushed and oiled oak in natural or shades of grey perfectly fits the bright furniture and can be supplemented with rugs or runners in strong colours.
Also the door frame should continue the clear forms of the furniture at the Scandinavian style, therefore the classic corner edge of the doors and frames, we recommend especially, finally dispensed with this style on frills and ornaments.
Clean lines and simple design determine the purist furnishing style. Especially in large lofts, this minimalist décor is particularly well. The simplicity comes out without much decoration and concentrates on the essentials, he will arrange the furniture in the focus and staged it as their own works of art.
I’m sure that a floor covering may steal the show exclusive furniture. That’s why a restrained Designboden best with this style blends. Reluctant means in this case that he should not distract by elaborate patterns or grain of the furniture pieces. Especially vinyl floors in Slate, stone or leather radiate a restrained elegance and bring out their pieces of furniture very well.
The colonial style focuses particularly on dark solid wood and combined it with exotic accessories and bright natural materials such as linen, rattan or leather.
Particularly hardwoods such as teak or mahogany characterise the colonial-style, but also other tropical hardwoods are used such as Acacia or Mango at colonial décor. At the colonial-style, a wide variety of styles and patterns may be combined from distant lands. Asian floral encounter African decorative elements or Tierprints. So it is not too confusing, a connecting element should be defined and consistently implemented. This may be a pattern or a certain shade. So it is not too dark, should be used with accessories and decoration on lighter colors.
The combination of dark furniture and bright fabrics for curtains, carpet or upholstered furniture can be supplemented with a dark or reddish shiny parquet elegant. Dark Merbau, ash or amber oak blend superbly here. Particularly elegant, the soil acts when he was sealed. This obtains a radiant glow and is particularly easy to clean.
Doors and frames with round edge complete the picture, in a room in the colonial-style, they seem softer and less intrusive.
If by “retro décor” is the classic design of the 1950s and 1960s years describes so commonly. Darker furniture made of teak wood encounter colorful colors and upholstery, daring patterns and unusual shapes. It’s not about to copy the style of that time one-on-one, but to combine classic with contemporary design. Almost everyone is familiar with the typical kidney of the 60s or the curved Lounge Chair made of leather, these may be mixed according to your heart’s content with contemporary design elements. Furniture in particularly strong colors are as commonplace and are especially well in combination with rather taken back colors. Textiles such as upholstery, curtains or even wallpaper often come with graphical or geometric patterns. So that it will not work to overloading, but also the elements of this design should be used discreetly.
Those who live the retro style, can complement teak furniture and bright colours in the form of upholstery or carpets with dark parquet floors. Sealed Walnut parquet or oiled Walnut parquet are classics of the 50’s and 60’s. Who loves it even more authentic, which selects a linoleum floor in a subtle color. Whether slate grey or cream is left to quite her tastes and should be made subject by the rest of the furniture.
Similar to the Scandinavian style, the retro style relies on clear forms and structures. Doors and frames the classic corner edge is therefore recommended.
Who thinks on the Mediterranean décor has the Tuscany in your own four walls in mind. Terracotta dominated both as a decorative element, color. Terracotta is combining with different shades of Earth, from natural white over ochre Wal nut Brown.
The olive is a central design element in Mediterranean décor and finds himself as a plant, as well as in the form of furniture made from olive wood in the living room. But also rattan is found frequently in Mediterranean style. Decorated is of course with clay pots, many green plants and accessories from the Mediterranean.
A Mediterranean decor is complemented by a shiny, slightly reddish shiny parquet floor. This can be a sealed floor made of oak or cherry, but also a sealed beech parquet suits terracotta and earthy tones.
The Asian style is simple and straightforward and often boasts a certain colour combination. Although also muted colours are quite typical of Asian style, but just in China is the combination white, vibrant reds and black. Yellow, however, is in China for balance and neutrality, therefore yellow is often found in offices and also temples. Maybe it’s so what the workroom? Natural materials are available in Asian décor focuses on.
Many Asian furniture are made of mango or sandalwood, but also bamboo is a recurring element. The decoration is especially in the Asian style: stones, flowers and green plants are used here particularly like. But also statues of deities, lanterns, screens, porcelain and Asian characters are used for the design.
Bamboo is used in the Asian region for the production of different products. No wonder, because bamboo is a fast growing commodity and thus significantly more to process than slower growing species. Why rely also on a beautiful Bamboo flooring? Bamboo flooring is available in different shades, from “Nature” dark “chocolate” over “caramel beige”, depending on the color design of your room, you can choose the right bamboo floors. Thus, they have a stylish flooring that is traditional parquet in nothing in its properties. And who wants to take the big picture perfect, relies on Asian-style sliding doors for the doors.
The modern furnishing style is harder to define, finally, fashion turns in the furniture world and what was still as modern five years ago, can be today again frumpy. The nice thing about the modern furnishing style: Combining is allowed!
Clearly above all furniture pieces that are typical for the modern home decor include modern décor, but this does not mean that you can not create their own modern mix from the individual furnishing styles. So the vintage Chair without problems can meet Upcycling living room table and modern couch landscape. What I like and fits is allowed, because just this blithe mix of styles makes modern furnishings today.
The same applies to the flooring, the Designcouch can meet here on the rustic country house floorboard, or vice versa the unusual Designboden on the retro couch. Decided according to taste and develop as their very own modern style!
Whatever style you choose, is left all over them. The best the implementation, for example a special color scheme or a pattern where they align the rest of the institution works if you give yourself a clear line. Usually more is less important, set accents instead of the room specifically to operator overloading.
Of course any of the interior design styles on the terrace can be continued: cast iron garden furniture for the Mediterranean style, bamboo decking for the Asian or natural pine wood and a cosy lounge area for the Scandinavian style.
