Brighten up wood flooring
News of a more colourful trend emerging for interiors is great for those looking for new flooring, but those who just want to update a wood floor are being advised that it may be easier than you think.
One of the groups most likely to resist new fashions are consumers who bought wood flooring as an investment and feel that this means they have to remain true to the original style.
Most wooden floors, however, can be sanded down and refinished so a change in shade will be possible and DIY retailers will stock coloured finishes to really bring your wood flooring up to date.
This is a fantastic way of staying true to your investment and the beauty and quality of a wood floor, yet still updating your room for a fresh look.
However, if you would prefer not to go for quite such a drastic change then there are still alternatives to achieve a brighter colour scheme, without changing the floor.
Brightly coloured rugs are another great solution for adding a splash of colour to any room without committing to a dramatic makeover.
Of course there is also the option, that many people will choose, to stick with classic wood flooring and change the colours of walls and furnishings when it is time for a new look.
