Style matters
The style you choose will offset everything else in your room – and potentially helps to create the overall atmosphere of your home. Choose a style that suits both the design and period of your property and the effect you are trying to achieve. If, for example, you have a period property, look for floor tones and floorboard effects that match the age: wider boards, and darker tones. Note that the colour of your wooden flooring is going to affect the apparent size of your room (see below) depending on the colour of the walls and the amount of natural light the room gets.

Colour and finish
Your wooden floor solution needs to match the colour of your home, as well as the style and period. Many homes in London have rooms that don't get much natural light: choosing a lighter colour of flooring can help to reflect what light you do get, and make the room feel more open and airy. Your floor fitter can advise on suitable colours for different spaces within your home, if you are having trouble deciding for yourself. Darker floor colours can work very well with white or light walls, and in rooms that have access to a good amount of natural light.

Skirting and architraves
Be sure to chose the floor finish that's appropriate for the other fixings in your room – your floor needs to match the skirting board and architrave types and colours you have in place. Note as well that the depth of varnish you add to your wooden flooring makes a huge difference to the finished effect. High gloss can create an extremely dramatic look, with lights reflected in the shine on the floor – but is also higher maintenance.

Functionality
All floors, wooden and otherwise, must perform the function for which a room is designed. Wooden flooring in a bathroom, for example, must be watertight, and non-slip when wet. Consider the use of your room when you start looking at the floor your fitter is going to put in. A heavy-duty grade floor is suitable for hallways and other areas that experience a significant amount of foot traffic. Darker colours show up dirt and scratches more easily. Middle range colours are better at hiding scuffs and spillages.

Sample before you decide
It's vital that you order samples of the wooden flooring you think you want, and give yourself a chance to look at it in situ. You'll never know exactly what the tone and size of a wooden floorboard will look like in your house until you have placed it next to the walls of the room in question.

Look at the big picture
Remember that the floor you design is part of a bigger picture: your whole home. Make sure that the colours and finished blend with the floors around you: both carpets and hard floors. Consider your furniture too. If you have sofas and chairs with hard legs or wheels, they may scrape or mark a wooden floor. Use wheel cups to protect the surface.
