Top tips for coordinating your flooring with your kitchen

At Best at Flooring, we regularly work with people who are looking to redecorate their kitchens, which means that we are lucky enough to know a lot about both kitchen décor and design.

One of the first questions that people usually ask us usually revolves around how they can coordinate their floor with the rest of the kitchen.

The good news is that working it all out is actually quite simple, and even a little fun.

Getting started

If you’re working with a totally new kitchen, the world really is your oyster and you can choose from a wide variety of colour schemes and styles.

During the planning stages, keep your colour scheme simple, giving yourself the opportunity to use more striking colours for smaller items and kitchen accessories.

By doing this, you’ll be able to update your kitchen over the years by changing the accessories, saving yourself from having to spend large amounts of money.

Choosing the right colour scheme

The best way of choosing a colour scheme is to select two dominant colours that you love, alongside a third accented colour, making sure that they all complement one another.

So, for example, if you are opting for a dark kitchen floor, you might want to go for cabinets that are light in colour.

When working out what colour scheme works best, you’ll need to consider the room’s size, shape, and most importantly, the natural lighting available to it.

If you happen to have a narrow kitchen with a low ceiling and little natural light, dark colours and shades might make it feel a little too oppressive.

A colour scheme that incorporates light tints, which introduce elements of white within the colours, might be the best way to go in this instance.

Alternatively, if you happen to have a large kitchen with lots of natural light, you should be able to experiment with darker shades and colours, using the light to ensure that the room still feels airy.

No matter what you decide on, remember that too much white in a kitchen might make it feel too sparse, so balance is key.

Floor designs to think about

It goes without saying that no two floors are the same, and although kitchen floors are often practical and hardwearing, there is a range of beautiful styles and patterns that you can choose from.

For example, our Polyflor Camaro Atlantic Slate luxury vinyl flooring is designed with a gorgeous slate effect that is suited for large, modern kitchens.

On the other hand, if you’re searching for something a little more traditional, our Tarkett Starfloor Retro Black & White offers a herringbone design that incorporates light and dark hues, which is perfect for smaller kitchens looking to incorporate lighter design.

No matter what kind of flooring you choose for your kitchen, remember to take your time and really think about what you want to express with it, and how it might fit in with the rest of your home.

We have a great range of kitchen flooring to choose from including luxury vinyl tiles and waterproof laminate.
