There are many different shades of blue, making it one of the most popular colours for walls. Blue can help a room feel warmer, cooler, smaller, and even larger. However, it is a relatively bold choice, which means you need the right colour floor to go with it.
Consider The Paint Options
There are several options when it comes to dedicated floor paints but one of the best is undoubtedly polyurethane floor paints. These are long-lasting, surprisingly tough, and offer an array of other benefits. It’s the sensible choice.
The good news is, once you’ve chosen the paint type you’ll be able to see what shades of colour they offer. It will help you to decide which is the best floor colour to go with your blue walls.
Your Preferred Colours
Knowing what colours are available means you’ll probably instinctively have preferred options. This is a good way of narrowing down the colours you would feel comfortable adding to your home. But, it doesn’t mean that the colours you’ve chosen will be the best ones to go with blue walls.
You simply have a starting point for analysis.
Blue walls actually go with a surprising amount of floor colours. The trick is to ask yourself how dark your walls are. The darker they are the lighter the floor needs to be.
For example, dark blue walls work well with a pale grey floor. White flooring is never a good option as it is very difficult to keep clean. But light grey, or even a pale brown, can work well.
It’s also possible to choose a dark brown colour. This will work best if the room is large as, combined with dark blue walls, it can make the room feel smaller;
Naturally, if you’ve gone for a pale blue wall then dark brown, dark grey, and even black colours can look good, making a specific statement at the same time.
It’s worth noting that pale blue floors also go well with blue walls
If you’ve narrowed your colour choice down and found something you like then make sure you test it in the room before you redo the floor. It’s possible it looks great in the showroom but doesn’t look the same at home.
Add a little paint to the corner of the room and stand back. It will help you to decide if it looks good or not.
In fact, that’s one of the best advantages of using floor paint. If you don’t like the colour it is very easy to paint over it with a different colour.
Never try to paint your floor, or install a coloured flooring that is the same colour as the walls. It merges the distinction between floor and walls and leaves the room feeling very disjointed and disorientating.
Instead, choose the colours you like and, once you know they work together, apply them. That will help to ensure you enjoy living in your own home.
