Choose natural laminate flooring where you need the flooring to blend in with your décor. When we talk about a 'natural' finish this mostly refers to materials like natural oak laminate flooring which comes is wide variety of colours and finishes.
If you have bright colours in your room then you may find it better to have a more subtle colour on the floor. This can be in the form of a smooth natural finish like stone or concrete effect, or something bolder such as beautiful parquet herringbone laminate flooring.
There is a great range of colours to choose from including fawn and bleached pine. The idea is less about making a bold statement and more about choosing the best colour material to match the room. There is a definite move to more natural colours, as seen in the late '80s and '90s.
