Baseboard is a small element that often overlooked when designing the interior. But the truth is, these small decorative pieces can make a big difference to the overall looks, for example, it has such an important role to play when it comes to making the entire space look complete. Furthermore, a lot of people believes that using baseboard can help increase the value of their home.
When choosing a baseboard for your home, there are many different things you should consider, but one of the most important keys to get the best results is that it should look flawless with the floors.
Different floor colors should be using different baseboard colors. And in this article, we will show you some best colors that will match beautifully with any kind of gray flooring.
Best Baseboard Colors for Gray Flooring
The simplest and most straightforward rule is to use the same color (and material) with the floor. So, if you are using gray flooring, then a gray baseboard is one of the best choices. This will create an elegant flawless look between the baseboard and the floors.
The exact same gray as the floor surely the best, but you can also use another shade of gray to create a bit of contrast. While we prefer a lighter gray, any darker shade of gray can also still do the job nicely.
If you want to create a clean and bright look, then you can use the white baseboard. Using this versatile color can also make your next job easier when it comes to choose the wall paint color, as this baseboard will match easily with any shades that you choose.
However, before choosing the white baseboard, you should consider the maintenance. These kinds of baseboards can easily get dirty so you should clean them more often to keep the polished looks.
Gray is known as the cool-toned shade, so sometimes you need to balance it up with a warmer shade, and one of our favorites is beige or cream. This particular shade had enough warmth that will neutralize the floors, but not too much so it won’t be taking over and distract the overall looks.
Using a beige baseboard can also help make the entire space feel more comfy and welcoming.
In some cases, baseboard and trim can be a great way to create a bold line to emphasize every edge and corner of your room. If you are using the baseboard for this kind of purpose, then using bold colors is the best choice. And for gray flooring, black seems to be the best option.
As you can see in the picture above, the black baseboard highlight every edges in bold ways. These combinations are perfect if you want to create a modern, contemporary-style interior.
