While you don’t want your floor to scream out winter-time all year round, making the right choices can mean the difference between having to turn your heating up a few degrees and enjoying the notion that your room is warmer than it actually is. Colours definitely affect how warm or how cool we feel, and the colour of wood flooring you choose will impact on that. But feeling warm i ... READ MORE >

  • Dark Floorboards Suit Brighter Interiors the Best

      When choosing new floorboards, one of the top items on most people’s agenda is the colour that’ll work best in their room.
