Interior decorators and architects study long and hard to master the art of color matching. So, don’t feel inadequate if, when choosing the perfect floor color to complement your interior, you are baffled by the endless possibilities. However, An Cuong Flooring is happy to offer you a few basic tips.
Tip 1: The room size
No matter how big or small the room is, the color of your floor will always have a major impact on the feeling of space you get in a room. Is your room large and wide? Then you might want to consider using warm or dark tones, like wengé or walnut, for your new floor. These colors tend to make large rooms seem smaller, which makes them a lot cozier.
And the best part is, this effect also works in the other direction. If you are cramped for space in a tiny room, using the right colors can make all the difference. Try using lighter, natural floor colors like beiges or light oak. These shades have the ability to really open up a room, without you having to throw out half of your furniture.
Tip 2: The effect of colors
The way you decorate and the colors you choose for your floor and walls will have a huge impact on the atmosphere in the room. Light colors will give the space a sunnier, happier feel. Shades of yellow stand for optimism and fun, while white and light beige will give the room a sense of openness and purity. Want to keep your interior peaceful and cool? Then go for timeless grey tones. An interior dominated by brown colors will have a very natural and rustic feel, while black stands for luxury and class. A black floor also gives the room a powerful and dramatic edge, full of contrast.
Tip 3: Use the light
Throughout the day, the lighting in your room changes gradually. Judging a floor sample color at night, in artificial light, will give you a very different impression than during mid-afternoon in the natural sunlight. So make sure you judge the samples at different times of the day, with different lighting. Take a second to think about what kind of light you want for your new floor. A kitchen you walk in and out of all day long, a bedroom that’s night-only, or a children’s playroom that they only use in the afternoon… every room type has its own unique lighting.
Tip 4: Mind the bigger picture
Don’t choose your floor color based on an empty room. Make sure it also matches the broader style and feel you want to give your interior. Do you have some design furniture that you want to emphasize? Then use natural colors, that will create a neutral canvas and allow your furniture to take center stage. Red tones bring a sense of luxury and go well with heavy, colonial furnishings. In general, brown tints are the best match for a country-style interior.
It’s always a good idea to take along some elements that represent your interior. A throw pillow, a paint chip, or a cabinet wood sample from the room that’s getting a new floor, can be a great help to determine the right color. Using these samples will make your decision a lot easier.
SPC Flooring is a popular flooring material for many commercial applications for many of the same reasons it is so popular for residential applications. It is water-resistant and low maintenance, which helps to control upkeep costs, and it is relatively durable so you will not have to replace it very often. It is also available in a wide variety of colors, textures, and style options. It can even be printed to simulate the look of hardwood, stone, or carpet.
When it comes to commercial SPC flooring, you get what you pay for. The quality of the material that you purchase will have a direct impact on how well it will withstand the rigors of varying levels of foot traffic.
With SPC flooring, the colors are homogenous through the entire piece of material dimensionally, so you don’t have to worry about them fading away through wear.
Commercial SPC Flooring Warranties
In many cases, the residential and commercial warranty on materials will vary. Make sure that the distributor knows the level of traffic that you are expecting so that they can accurately adjust the warranty to your specific situation.
Remember that the warranty only covers manufacturer defects. These are most often misprints of colors or sheets and tiles that do not line up properly. It does not cover installation mistakes, which are the most common cause of SPC flooring problems later.
Long-Term Issues With Commercial SPC Floors
Dulling of the SPC’s surface finish is probably the most common long-term issue with commercial product installation. This is caused by small pieces of dirt, sand, and debris being tracked across the floor by shoes and the wind. As these tiny particles scrape across the floor, they act like the grits of a piece of sandpaper, scratching and marring the surface of the SPC.
Solutions: The easiest way to prevent dulling of your SPC floors is to keep them free of those tiny particles that can harm them. Sweeping, vacuuming, or mopping periodically can do a lot to help protect a SPC floor in a high-traffic area. The use of floor mats at entrances and exterior doorways can also help to trap some of the debris before it can get inside where it can harm.
Discoloration of commercial SPC floors can happen over time due to the buildup of dirt, oil, and others. The rubber in some shoes can even cause slight discolorations on the floor. Prolonged exposure to heat or direct sunlight will also discolor the material, causing it to take on a yellowish color.
Solutions: Regular cleaning will help to remove the oils and greases that can discolor dercorative film over time. Floor mats set at entrances and exits will also help to cut down on mud and other staining agents that get tracked in. The use of curtains in places where windows and glass doors shine direct sunlight down on the floor can help prevent yellowing effects. However, SPC floors should not be installed in areas of high heat output, such as near heating ducts and vents.
+ Surface Dents and Damage
Surface dents and damage to the floor can be caused by a variety of issues. Heavy furniture scraping across the floor can cause gouges and scratches. Sharp unprotected chair legs can also severely mar a commercial SPC floor in a cafeteria or eating area. Even some unpadded high heels can cause damage to the floor’s surface.
Solutions: If the scratches and dents are small, then you can use liquid seam filler to repair them. Make sure that the SPC is clean and dry, and then apply a small amount of the clear liquid to the blemish, being sure to smooth it out so it does not create bubbles or mounds. As it dries, it should cause smaller blemishes to vanish.
With SPC plank, you have the option of removing the affected area and replacing it with a matched patch.

The floor plays a very important part in your home. It’s where you walk on. It also supports your home’s furniture and fixtures. More importantly, it’s a part of your home’s foundation.
With these things in mind, you have to make the right choice. You can’t just base your decision on one or a couple of things. There are several things to consider when choosing flooring material and here are the most important ones:
Design, color, and style choices
Its appearance is probably your first consideration. Flooring should be functional, but it should also be appealing to look at. You’d want something that can bring out the beauty of your interiors so you need to find something that can match it.
This is why SPC Floor is popular. It offers countless designs, colors, and style choices. It doesn’t matter what your design preference is. You can find one that you’ll love.
This is going to be a significant investment so you have to make sure that it’s durable enough to last a long time. You can’t choose a material that won’t even last a year.

You’d be happy to know that SPC floor is very durable. It’s so durable that it can be installed in high traffic areas. You can install it in your whole house. Installed by a competent professional, it can easily last a couple of decades.
Ease of installation
This is not to say that you should try to install it yourself. It’s always recommended that you hire a professional even if it’s very easy to install. Even so, you can benefit from something like SPC Floor that’s easy to install because that would mean a lower installation cost because the installer doesn’t have to use a lot of tools, materials, expertise, time, and effort to install it. You can save money this way.
Really, who wants to do regular maintenance on anything around the house? You’d want something as low maintenance as possible. You don’t want something that’s too demanding because of high maintenance needs.
Usually, these high-maintenance materials will quickly deteriorate if you don’t maintain them. They’re holding you hostage. Maintain them or else, you’ll lose your investment.
This is why SPC floor is a popular choice. It’s very low in maintenance. In most cases, regular sweeping to keep it dirt-free is all it takes. If there are stains, you just have to mop it up and clean it using a floor cleaner that’s designed for this material. But really, you don’t have to worry about stains too much with this material because the best ones have a clear layer that helps them resist stains.
This is also an important consideration especially for areas that can get wet or damp. But even in an area like your living room, you can still benefit from a water-resistant material.
SPC Floor, provided that it’s been installed correctly, is very water-proof. It’s so water-resistant that you can use it in your bathroom.
If you have pets, the logical choices become limited. You wouldn’t want expensive hardwood flooring if you have pets unless you like the look of hardwood with scratches. Pet poop on the carpet is not pleasant as well.
SPC Floor is a safe choice if you have pets. There are scratch repair kits that you can buy. Pet poop can be easily cleaned.
It should be comfortable to walk on. Carpet is a top choice as far as comfort is concerned, but you also have to consider the other things.
SPC Floor is also a comfortable choice. It’s more comfortable to step on as compared to wood or stone. This is because of how it’s designed underneath with a layer of felt.
Should you be looking at stone tiles or wood flooring when you know that you can’t afford them? You have to set your budget and stick to it.
It’s all about value for money. This makes SPC Floor very popular. The value it offers at its price point is amazing, ensuring great returns on your investment.
As always, feel free to talk to a professional regarding these considerations.
