You need to think about the color of the walls, the color of the flooring and the color of your furniture. If you choose the wrong rug it could clash and the whole room would look off balance.

This may also explain why rooms that are decorated in lighter colors work better with hardwood flooring than rooms decorated in darker colors. A well installed wood floor should never be covered with another material; wood floors are clean, easy to care for, a good value and can complement almost any decorating theme. Yet, its very unobtrusiveness usually requires some additional treatment to give it some drama and carry through a certain style. The best solution is a combination solution. that is. cover the flooring with a rug that reflects the decorating scheme of the room but. at the same time leaves enough of the beautiful natural feature of the wood flooring showing through. A few smaller rugs might achieve the same effect, depending on the size of the room and the placement of the furniture in the room.

Laminate floor coverings basically have the following layers:core, laminate and protective foil. The flooring is made from lengths of high density fibreboard (HDF) and they tend to be a locking or tongue and groove versions.
