Whether it’s for wood flooring or another product, choosing color is often the most challenging part of the process. It doesn't have to be, though. Here are three simple tips to simplify matters.

Decide on the atmosphere you want to create

You must also consider room size, light, and other colors here. For example, if you want a light, airy atmosphere, you might go with a blond, caramel, or white floor.

Light colors will also make a room seem more significant. That's especially a consideration if the room is small.

If you want a dramatic look, you might prefer dark wood or exotic solid hardwood flooring. However, if your walls and accessories are dark, they'll seem cluttered and a little too moody.

If you want a relaxed, casual vibe, there's nothing like whitewashed wood floors, which are also slightly distressed.

Take samples home

You need to view the colors in your surroundings and try to look at them at different times of the day. Colors will vary slightly, depending on sunlight and neighboring hues.

It's not enough to look at them in a lightbox or outdoors to get a better look. You need to see the wood flooring in your own home.

Consider undertones

Those are secondary colors. They are what give hardwood floors beautiful hints of red, brown, slate blue, or other hues.
There are excellent and warm tones. But, when you mix them up, they'll clash and look jarring.

Keep in mind that color isn't one-size-fits-all. Instead, they all have different shades, which gives them different undertones.

For instance, some have more yellow, which is a warm tone. Others may have more blue, a cool tone.

Invest $20 or 25 in a color wheel. Then bring it with you when you go to the hardwood flooring company.
