Sponsored by Kustom Timber

We’ve all been there, in the whirlwind of choices when it comes to making our dream home a reality. It’s a lot to take in, and you’re definitely not alone in feeling that way. And while getting new timber flooring can be one of the biggest game changers for your home, picking the right colour is no easy task!

The experts at Kustom Timber, who currently have 25% off all ranges in their biggest sale ever, share some helpful advice and pointers with us today.

You know that feeling when you walk into a room and something just clicks? Or, on the flip side, when something feels slightly off? That’s the magic of undertones.

Undertones are like the subtle personalities hidden beneath the surface colour of your timber floors. They hold the power to set the mood of your space; to make your flooring dance in harmony with your overall design.

There are three main players in the undertone game: warm, cool, and neutral.

Warm undertones have this wonderful ability to create spaces that are all about unwinding and togetherness. Picture shades of red, orange, and yellow woven into your timber flooring – it’s like an embrace of warmth and welcome.

Cool undertones, on the other hand, bring a sense of calm and freshness. They’re the perfect match for spaces like bathrooms, home offices or modern kitchens. Imagine walking into a room that feels clear and sophisticated – that’s the magic of cool undertones.

And then there’s the chameleon of the group – neutral undertones. Think shades of beige, brown, and taupe. They’re the ultimate team players, effortlessly blending with different colors and design elements. If you’re someone who likes to switch up your interior look often, neutral undertones give you that versatile canvas.

But here’s the thing: making the right choice requires a bit of thought. First off, take a good look at the colours already present in your space. Your undertone should complement and enhance these hues.

Lighting matters too. The amount of natural light can make or break the look. Light undertones can make a dim room feel brighter, while darker ones add depth to well-lit spaces. Don’t forget your furniture and decor either. Your undertone should be in sync with your design vibe for that seamless feel.

However, amidst all this advice, remember one golden rule – your flooring should speak your language. It’s a reflection of you, so make sure the undertone resonates with your personal style.
