Here’s the thing about laminate—the color options seem endless. Compared to hardwood, laminate provides a very similar look at a lower price point with plenty of color options and finishes to choose from. Plus, it’s more scratch-resistant, durable, and resilient when it comes to moisture, and it’s easier to install. With so many options, choosing the right color can be overwhelming.
The best laminate option for your space is dependent on your vision. Flooring is harder to change and update compared to walls, artwork, and furniture. So, lots of consideration should go into choosing your flooring color, and it should be chosen before other details.
When you begin looking at vast sample booklets, it might be challenging to know where to start. Before you head over to your local Flooring America store, we recommend creating a mood board and collecting inspiration. Pinterest boards, magazine cutouts, or color palettes can help narrow down your options.
In addition, as you begin doing research, you might find décor styles that fit your vision like shabby chic, minimalist, farmhouse, traditional, beachy—the list goes on. This is important because if you have a theme, it will rule out a lot of color options and make it easier to choose the right one. For example, traditional décor calls for a rich cherry color, where a beachy design naturally leans toward whitewashed or light tones. By creating a clear vision, the right color choice will be easier to make, leaving you with a floor you love.
