Flooring that Works with Denim Drift – Dulux Colour of the Year 2017

This month Dulux announced its Colour of the Year 2017. The winning tone is a shade of blue called Denim Drift.

This calm grey-blue tone is a soft, versatile blue – a bit like the sort of denim you might see on a sun-faded pair of vintage jeans – hence the name.

Blue tones are definitely making a comeback as we enter the Autumn/Winter season and we’ve taken a look at just a few of the flooring options you’ll find in our Surrey showroom which will blend or contrast perfectly with the Colour of the Year 2017.

Two tone walls and neutral flooring

Denim Drift is ideal to contrast with crisp whites or a dash of darker blues on the walls. A scheme like this lends itself to a neutral flooring choice with subtle shades to complement the look.  Our perfect picks for this include

Alternative Flooring Quirky B Daisy Gloriosa Carpet

Mix Denim Drift with brown earthy tones by introducing wood floors

Blues partner perfectly with warm, earthy colours so introducing wood flooring alongside blue tones creates a lovely contrast. Our picks include a traditional earthier oak and a contemporary clean light oak wood floor.
