Floor and Decor
When doing interior design, one, usually, starts from the floor up. Take, for example, what you would assume a first time visitor to your establishment or home would see when first entering. The floor is the first thing to see since the floor is what one needs to look at when deciding where to step. The floor and decor are in the right order since the floor should be decided upon first before continuing on with the décor. If one chooses carpeting or linoleum or wood or tiles, the rest of the design of a room or hallway would depend on the colors in the flooring.
Finding the Right Furniture
Once the floor and decor has been picked, the furnishings would follow. The décor would include the type of wall covering or wall paint which would have to work well with the type of floor. A carpeted floor can take any kind of wall covering from paneling to solid white paint. A linoleum floor would work well with wall paper. A wood floor would be best with solid color wall paint. The floor dictates the wall covering since the first rule in design is that the eye is not startled by choice of textures and colors in floor and wall.
The Importance of Foundation
Designing a plan for your interior design means that you know the importance of your floor and decor. And the first choice to be made is to know that the floor should be picked first before deciding on the color, décor, or furnishing. It can take a considerable amount of time to choose just the right floor for a living space. Impulsive choices and purchasing before considering all of the options and aspects might result in your interior design plan to not live up to your expectations. A decision on the right floor needs to be made carefully for it is a very important part of interior decorating.
Don’t forget that the floor you choose will be used for a long period of time, hopefully. If it is not complimentary to the rest of the décor, it might have to be changed which can be considerably expensive. A floor is expensive. Regardless of the budget that must be adhered to, taking the time to choose the right floor is essential not only for the budget but in terms of time spent in making these important decisions in interior design.
The importance of floor and decor will become more apparent as colors in walls and furnishings are added to complete the overall aesthetic of your home. Keeping in mind that the floor is the first to be seen should be a good guidepost in creating an interior living space that is appreciated by those who must live in it.
