Classic colour combinations that work

Are you planning to refresh your  home or get it ready for sale? Whether renovating for yourself or to show your property at its best before going to market, there are some classic colour combinations to consider that can give you a real design edge.

One of the most effective ways to give your home an overhaul is to update tired floors and repaint your interiors. The difference fresh floors and a coat of paint will do for the initial impression and feel of your home is immense.

To choose which design direction you would like to achieve, consider the following classic colour combinations and what would work effectively in your space.

White and grey

Homely, inviting, modern and fresh. The combination of white and grey is popular in it’s ability to work as a neutral base and compliment many interior styles. Hamptons, classic design or a modern makeover. It all works well with white and grey.

Black flooring

Black stained floorboards create an instant statement and a bold choice in a space. Black flooring can be used as a sophisticated base for a very modern and sleek design. It also works well to highlight other features in the space, such as bright artworks or feature furniture pieces.

Natural, golden tones

Injecting light and colour into a home can be achieved through the use of rich golden-hued timber in flooring and features. A close relation to the white and grey look but with more warmth and life, often coupled with lots of greenery through houseplants or landscaping.
