Hardwood Flooring Glasgow interiors advice

When you are looking for hardwood floors Glasgow, the tendency is for our customers to lean towards dark wood floors as it is very much on trend at the moment.

All dark hardwood floors species are really fashionable at the moment, but just to throw a spanner in the works, so are lighter boards as well! So how do you make the decision between the lighter look or the darker hardwood?

With a darker hardwood floors your rooms can sometimes look a bit smaller. This is an important factor to take into consideration when choosing your floor. If you have a large room, then you have space and light to play with.

Dark hardwood floors with the chocolate stained Oak or Walnut will add real warmth and depth to your room and with the correct lighting, they can create a beautiful ambience in any home. Beautiful cream walls or white to match will be gorgeous. If your room is on the small size then maybe a lighter colour would be a better choice. Lighter floors will make your room look bigger.

Whitewashed is very cool at the moment and as well as solid wood floors, there is a huge selection of laminates that come in all sorts of trendy finishes, from black to bright white. Really if you have been scouring through all the design magazines and found something that inspires you, you can guarantee that with doing your homework, you will find the finish that you are looking for.

Grey is another colour that has been a hit for quite a while now. At First First Floors we have some fabby laminates in funky finishes and colours for you to choose from. Please bring in any samples of paint or wallpaper etc, and you can spend as much time as you like matching shades and delving through all the great flooring products that we have on show. One thing to be said about a darker wood floor is that sometimes it is not as forgiving as a lighter colour when it comes to cleaning. Darker wood tends to show up dust and footprints a bit more so this is another detail to take into consideration. It is important because if you are the one who has to clean all the time then a colour that is user friendly and that does not drive you NUTS trying to keep pristine clean all the time is massively important. Ultimately, the choice is yours and we all have are own ideas of how we would like our home to look.

We recently had First Floors install laminate flooring in our lounge and hallway and are absolutely delighted with the final result! It has been finished to a high standard with great attention to detail.

Having had a rough idea of what we were looking for, David helped find the perfect flooring for both rooms.

We were booked in quickly and kept informed throughout the process.

We would definitely recommend and use again.

Honestly so chuffed with my new floor. Everyone has been so helpful especially after I ran into issues on my end and had to delay getting my skirting on - everyone I spoke to has been so flexible, the joiner who fit the floor was really pleasant and quick too. Highly recommend!
