I need help choosing a color...

Postby hopefullymommy » Thu Jan 22, 2009 10:48 am

For the floor :D DW is working on painting that little bit that still needed done in the nursery... and we were talking about what we were going to do for the floor in there (going to replace it). We talked about tile- but wanted something softer, and carpet would be too much upkeep because it's so small we wouldn't have room to move things around to clean under them. So we talked about the foam flooring- it's soft, and easy to clean (can be mopped). So we ordered a sample thing online of the colors available- and I need help choosing!
Here is the sample:

And here it is against the wall (yes, that wall still needs a few touch ups :wink: She is working on that)

What do you guys think? I was kinda leaning toward the tan/ brown color... Or the green.... but I'm just not sure... what do you think?

I chose the white.. although it might get dirty really quick. It would give a crisp look. The blue isn't too bad either.

Foam is a cool idea btw :)

Yeah- we wanted something soft, but easier to clean than carpet :D

I dunno maybe the brown. I am just curious how quickly it will look dirty. Plus, you probably want a neutral so that you can change the wall color in the future.

I am not too worried about the color for changing the wall in the future- these are sooo cheap so I can always get a different color when I change the walls :) As for how quickly it will look dirty- I can mop them, so they should be fairly easy up-keep. :wink:

I voted for the brown/tan since it's a neutral color and it can look like wood flooring in a way ;) The flooring sounds so cool...can't wait to hear how it comes out!
