Wood. We have this connection. It’s such a beautiful product and in its various aspects it can be a true asset to your interior. When I think about wood on the floor, I immediately link it to parquet. This is and will always remain the real deal for me. Personally, a genuine wood floor will always get priority over an imitation product like laminate for instance.
Often clients try to approach the look and feel of a wood floor with a laminate, but in my opinion, it’s not the same, laminate is not a natural product, which you will always see somehow. Of course I understand their choice, the price for such materials is much lower, but, honestly, nowadays it’s not that difficult to find a budget-friendly wood floor as well. Great example, Lamett’s ranges Matisse and Toulouse. In terms of quality a very strong product at a very reasonable price.
Both ranges are medium rustic, which means that you will spot a knot here and there and you will notice some colour variation between the boards. Personally, I prefer medium rustic wood floors. For me a select or clean parquet lacks a bit the wood look, while a rustic one has it too much at some point. Medium rustic is something in between. This is the reason why a lot of people go for it. It simply suits any interior.
What I really like is this kind of medium rustic wood floor in a modern interior, in combination with lots of white, and for example with an epoxy floor. Instant warm and cosy feeling guaranteed. In a more modern interior, I would opt for a natural colour/finish, like the Toulouse or Matisse Natural White. As you’re combining different styles and materials, keep in mind not to overdo the whole picture. In short, a natural finish is the best option. Both ranges also offer the colour Deep Grey. Grey is often a colder colour, but in a space where a lot of light comes in, and where you want to put an accent, this is the right choice!
