Should Floors and Cabinetry Match?

If you have every furnished your home from scratch, then you must have faced the dilemma of choosing the floor color, and whether to match it with your cabinet color or not. Although the answer to that question is quite subjective and depends really on what your preferences are, but here we’ll try to explain what the general trends are in this respect.

Some people feel it’s atrocious to have same colored floor and cabinets. Primarily because they get bored looking at the same color everywhere. Life is boring without diversity and this aptly applies when it comes to the color scheme of your home.

Home décor experts say it’s always best to have floor two or three shades lighter or darker than your cabinets. For example, if your cabinets are dark and rich in color, the floor you should opt for should have a light color; for instance, maple. This makes for a far more aesthetic look and typically, similar colors create confusion and are not as visually appealing.

It’s up to you to decide which color will goes with which. A combination of various colors, shades and textures gives your house that extra flair. They reflect liveliness and the personality of the person who owns it. You can use all your creativity to choose various color schemes, or have your interior decorator give you suggestions. But mixing is definitely better than matching your floor and cabinetry colors.
