In the last article we explained how using a lighter shade of hardwood flooring can actually help to make a room appear brighter and more spacious. This effect is especially useful for smaller rooms where you want to make the best use of the space you have available.As well as putting up storage shelves in the room, so that you can free the floor from clutter, giving you space to move around in without too many obstacles, there are other things you can do to make your room seem bigger than it is in reality.
Wood flooring experts in Hampshire will tell you that when your floor is laid, it is important to ensure that the grain runs length ways. The reason for this is so that it can really stretch the room’s appearance, working towards the effect you want to create here.
If possible, it is also recommended that the same type of flooring is installed in adjoining rooms as this helps to bring continuity to the space. When you do this you are ensuring the rooms are better connected, hence spaces are opened up in the best possible manner. This feeling of space created by wood flooring is great for totally transforming a home.
