Trying to match different wooden floors 'is impossible'

Posted on 3rd Dec 2010 @ 1:47 PM

With such a vast selection of wooden floor options couples may be tempted to try and install different types in various areas of the home, however, this is a bad idea.

That is according to Marc Ayitolil, who wrote for yourhome.ca that adopting such a tactic will leave the property looking uneven and mismatched.

"There is nothing worse than having a homeowner try to match a floor in a different type of wood. It's impossible and people will notice," he told a reader.

However, couples should not take that to mean that they should not look to revitalise their wooden floors in other ways.

"Upgrading flooring is a wonderful way to bring life to an existing space," Mr Ayitolil added.

Those going for a feminine look in their home would be well advised to invest in dark hardwood flooring.

According to Ronique Gibson, from freshome, this type of floor works particularly well with softer features.
