When choosing a new interior colour scheme it is advisable to start with the floor and work your way up. Typically, the floor area constitutes one sixth of the total surface area of a room, like the ceiling. It is sure to have a strong influence on the overall colour scheme.

When designers or specifiers think of colours for their projects they tend to think first of the walls and then maybe the upholstery and the main furniture pieces and accessories, such as sofas or office equipment. The flooring in a room or office is one of the single biggest elements of the interior and plays a pivotal role in setting the mood of the space, yet it is often overlooked and its colour hardly considered, apart from a practical perspective. Some consideration of the flooring colour can make a significant difference to the interior scheme.
