The end of spring and beginning of summer is the perfect opportunity to spruce up your home ready for the warm weather that will hopefully be heading this way very soon.

It’s a great chance to brighten up your colour scheme and add splashes of colours that are truly evocative of a glorious summer’s day. Pale cool colours and floaty curtains that gently sway in the summer breeze can really help to lighten your rooms and open them up to the nature that is just outside your window.

However, when people re-decorate, there is often one part of the room that they forget about, so whilst you are thinking about the colour scheme on your walls, your soft furnishings and your ornaments, spare a thought for your floor. If you haven’t updated the flooring in your room for a while then maybe this summer is a great time to do so.


If you are more of a carpeted flooring type of person then you may never really have considered adding hardwood flooring to your home but it is definitely a worthy contender when it comes to replacing your existing floor coverings. Put aside any misconceptions that you may have about it being cold, because hardwood flooring is a fantastic way to add great warmth to your home.

Hardwood flooring does not have to be difficult or complicated to look after. If you follow the manufacturer’s instructions it can be really easy to look after on a day to day basis, meaning you spend less time on the cleaning and more time enjoying the summer sunshine. The natural markings and colourings in any wood floor can really add a fantastic design element to any room. Whilst there is no denying that wood flooring will feel different under foot, a well-insulated floor should only feel cooler underfoot without altering the temperature of your room.

The natural colours of hardwood flooring make it the perfect complement for any colour scheme. It works equally well with rich wintery colours and light airy summer ones so if you alter your colour scheme on a regular basis then hardwood flooring is the perfect way forward. There are so many, different types of hardwood to choose from. If you are looking for something that will really help open up your room then why not consider Maple wood flooring, with its fine, steady grain Maple is the perfect lighter shade of wood that can make any room feel much more spacious and airy.
