Few homes are built with only one type of flooring. Tile, carpeting, and hardwood often coexist. Instead of choosing each flooring separately, why not try to match them together? This could have a major impact on the flow and style of your home. Floor Coverings International White Bear Lake has compiled some of our favorite flooring trios.

Dark Hardwood, Gray Carpeting, and Marble Tile

When using strong, distinct flooring such as dark hardwood or marble, it’s important to include at least one neutral flooring. The cool tones of a white marble and darker hardwood will be complemented by a similarly cool and neutral-toned gray carpeting.

Marble is a stunning flooring option, and if you’re willing to splurge, it works wonderfully as a kitchen flooring alongside a dark hardwood living room. For a more budget-friendly approach, however, stick to smaller bathrooms, or even choose a marble-look alternative. Porcelain is a more affordable option, and can still match the stunning colors and patterns of marble flooring.

Cherry Hardwood, Cream Carpet, and White Porcelain Tile

Cherry hardwood flooring is a stunning and warm addition to your home. Compliment this vibrant shade with a calm, neutral carpeting. Both cream and white will work, but cream will further accentuate the warmth of the hardwood. Porcelain tile looks classic and clean in white, so we recommend sticking to this shade. Porcelain tile can work well in a kitchen, bathroom, or even entryway.

Mid-Toned Hardwood, Blue Area Rugs, and White Subway Tile

For a classic warm hardwood with a mid-toned brown, feel free to accent with stronger colors. Area rugs in rich blue hues will provide a pop of color without being overwhelming. White subway tile will add a classic pattern that compliments both the vintage appeal of hardwood and the modern appeal of blue accent area rugs.
