How to Incorporate Multiple Shades of Wood In One Room

by Leonaro Dawson on Nov 14, 2013

One of the challenges that some homeowners can struggle with when it comes to design, is how to coordinate everything they have in a room so that it looks harmonious and pleasing on the eye.

A great way of creating a sophisticated home design that works well is to incorporate multiple shades of wood in the room, helping the furniture and décor to look its best.

Coordinating wood tones

It can sometimes be a challenge to coordinate wood tones as you have such a wide choice of wood flooring available from a company such as Lifewood, and you can get anything from light oak through to a rich mahogany and anywhere in between.

Learning how to incorporate, coordinate and mix wood colours into your interior decorating ideas requires a little extra thought and attention but it can be extremely rewarding and pleasing on the eye when you get it right.

Matching furniture

One of the best ways of matching your furniture to the wooden flooring for the perfect look is to connect the undertones.

This involves looking at the grain in wooden flooring that you want to use and pick up any hints of dark or light tones that you can then tie in with some of the main furniture pieces in the room, creating a subtle undertone connection that really works well from a visual perspective.

Blending wood tones

If your house has an open-plan element to it, you may want to blend two different wood tones from the different rooms so that it all flows seamlessly as you pass between the two areas.

If you have beech furniture in one room and darker cherry or mahogany furniture in the other then you can use different wood tones to connect the two spaces aesthetically and complete the look by mixing and matching some dark and light accessories in opposing rooms, to draw the décor together in a much more design-orientated way.

Finding the right balance

You should really try avoid mixing lots of different wood tones as this can make the flooring look a bit chaotic if you already have a fairly varied colour scheme in the room.

The best way of achieving the right balance between your flooring and the general décor is to try and stick to a fairly limited palette of wood tones or if you want to try and mix several different woods together, aim to keep the colour palette more subdued.

Achieving contrast

Sometimes it is a good idea to actually embrace contrast in order to get the best result. A pine dining table standing on a pine floor is a good example of why contrast is sometimes need to get the best results in your home design.

A contrasting coloured wood and furniture will make both items stand out on their own more but at the same time, work as a contrasting look which is balanced.

Wood flooring is a beautiful product to use in your house and very effective when you use multiple shades to achieve a truly sophisticated and pleasing look.
