When it comes to interior design, the Scandinavian trend has remained popular for many years. A large part of this trend includes wooden elements, with a main feature on wooden flooring.

If you’re looking to create a Scandinavian themed home, here you’ll discover everything you need to know about Scandi style flooring.

What is Scandi flooring?

Scandi flooring encompasses a number of different elements. At its most basic level, it is wooden flooring with a natural, light design. If you’re looking to create an authentic Scandi style floor, you’ll want to invest in real wood. However, if you don’t have the budget or the patience to maintain it, engineered wooden floors would be the next best thing.

If you simply want to create the look without necessarily worrying about materials, you could always opt for a Scandi effect floor. You’ll find a great choice of luxury vinyl floors for example, which boast a realistic wood effect. These are ideal for those on a budget and they come in hundreds of different wooden designs.

Choosing the right colour

When you’re trying to create a Scandinavian style floor, the colour is something you’ll want to pay attention to. A large part of Scandinavian home design is a light and simplistic colour scheme.

White tends to be the main colour used, with light oak elements scattered throughout. So, if you’re looking for Scandi flooring you’ll want to opt for either white or light colour options. One of the main benefits of light flooring, is that it creates a spacious look and feel to the room. It also creates somewhat of a blank canvas, adding a peaceful and tranquil feel to the room.

The natural element

As well as a light colour scheme, Scandi flooring should also have a very natural element. This means, opting for floors which feature natural imperfections. You’ll find wooden floors with a brushed effect fit this look perfectly. The brushing of the plank reveals the harsher grains underneath, alongside a range of beautiful imperfections such as knots and shading.

Another great way to achieve the Scandi flooring look, is to choose floors which come unfinished. The unfinished effect looks perfectly natural, though you will want to give it a clear coat of oil or lacquer to protect the floor against wear and tear.
