  • Decorating a Home with Dark Wood Floors

    Dark wood is one of the most elegant and sophisticated interior solutions for a home. Whether it is an entire home of dark wood floors or selected rooms,  it brings richness and classic elegance to a space. However, it is paired with the incorrect furniture, then the space look like dark, heavy and uninviting. Check out some tips below on bringing out the beauty of dark wood.


    White Architectural Details: Balance out the dark wood by adding white everywhere: in the home architecture and as well as the furniture. White can be used to highlight a room door, floor and crown moldings, window trims, or simply the color of the wall. Against the dark wood, white automatically catches the eye and is visually pleasing to look at. White can also be added to the walls, to balance the warmth of the dark wood and neutralize the look and feel of the space. As colors, white and dark wood are very neutral. Therefore, any pop of color can also be added to the room to balance it out. More on that idea is given below.

    Light Wood Furniture: Another way to balance out the dark wood is to add contrast with pale or light wood. Keep the floors dark and add pale wood furniture pieces to create a more cheerful space. It is very harmonious and still adds the same warmth of the hardwood without looking overbearing or stark. Light wood furniture can be added with white accents to create a more homely and inviting atmosphere.

    Brighter Colors Plus White: Bright colors are always an instant contrast to dark wood. It adds immediate color and makes the room look much brighter. Bright hues can also be added with white. With an airy white tone and a warm, dark wood tone, color is a great way to add instant pops or color and accents in any room. With much brighter colors around the room, the eye line is drawn upward towards the colors and away from the floor. As a result, the dark flooring is barely noticeable, yet serves as a balancing neutral for the bright, bold tones in the room.

    Dark floors in a home or a room may feel like an obstacle. However, they can balance out the room and allow for a creative space if decorated well. They add that extra beauty to a home that simply cannot be ignored. For the dark floors in your home, add some contrasts and pops for a bright and happy space!

  • Determining the Appropriate Placement of the Television

    These days a home without a television, or even a room without a television, is close to nonexistent. Nearly every home accommodates around one or builds a space designated for it. While choosing the entertainment unit or section for a room or space within the home, it is best to define the most appropriate placement of the television based on the size and shape of the overall space. Below, are some general guidelines to follow in defining the perfect space for your television screen.


    General Rule: The first rule to follow in designating a space for the television is to consider the viewing experience: including TV size and distance from the primary viewing location. The ideal location of the television is where the the center of the screen is at eye level for the viewer. Depending on the size of the television screen, the center point may vary. However, with the eye level being at the center, it is easy for the viewer to direct their eye line upward, downward, and sideways.

    Focal Point: The next step in the entertainment area is choosing the focal point. For the most part, the television screen itself is the focal point and the center of the seating area. Therefore, ensure the there is enough seating and spacing around the screen to allow everybody to view it easily and comfortably.

    Hiding It: The other option is to conceal the screen when it is not being used. To be able to do so, consider an entertainment unit with shutters in front of a sliding door to close when the television is not being used. The entertainment center should be easy to open and close for all members of the home.

    Style vs. Function: Finally, after determining the general location of the television and whether or not the screen should be a focal point or it should be hidden, the next step is considering the trade-offs. In other words, style versus function. In some homes, the television is not as important, and the homeowners would prefer a very stylish entertainment center, while in other homes the television is a higher priority, and the entertainment unit should be minimalistic around it. Depending on the space and preferences, one can either have a space that is more design focused, more user friendly, or a happy medium. For example, in a design focused room the television can have a beautiful furniture setup around the screen, yet the living space is also suitable for entertaining and conversation.

    Nevertheless, in the end it is entirely your home and your choice. The primary entertaining space can be as small or as large as you prefer, and it should be reflective of your space and preferences. The above points are simple guidelines to assist in the homebuilding process!
