Your flooring decision should be one that makes you proud, after all it will be around for years or even decades. Your flooring may be making a bold statement or it may be one with an understated background. The flooring should flow from one room to the next by repeating a colour, a pattern, or a texture. Your decisions on these three elements will affect the mood of the room. It can also help you create style for your kitchen.
Three elements that Affect Mood
1. Continuity with choice of colour
You can unify rooms with the same colour scheme. The vinyl flooring for these adjacent rooms create a neutral background that does not compete for attention. Light colours in rooms can make the room seem larger. On the other hand, bold bright colours can draw attention to the room and make the room seem smaller and more formal in tone.
2. Continuity with pattern
When the flooring of adjacent rooms have square pattern tiles and borders that create a rug-like pattern, it affects the mood of the room. Above the bold recurring patterns make the room seem exciting and place a lot of emphasis on the floor. It is important you do not choose clashing patterns in the room. A more relaxed mood can be achieve with the use of subtle pattern.
3. Continuity with texture
The texture of flooring contributes to the style of a room. If your kitchen is in a neutral colour texture is important for you. Refine and smooth textures are best in traditional kitchens to give it an airy sense of elegance. Whereas, contemporary kitchens usually make more use of texture in the ground.
