Shine a light on your space ...

Light, Neutral Floors.

If you want to brighten up a dark space try adding a lighter colored floor.

It’s that simple. Adding a unique floor like our new Envique Bridal Pine

or Reclaimé White Washed Oak with soft tones and rich graining will

brighten a room while making a subtle design statement. Lighter floors

can also make a room feel more spacious, and they provide a great

foundation for a variety of color palettes and furniture finishes.

Pretty is as pretty does. We know that beauty isn’t everything.

That’s why we craft our floors to be both beautiful and

beautifully durable. Our floors are built with a solid core for

stability and finished with a superior wear layer that stands up

to stains, scuffing, impacts, and everyday wear.

DESIGN TIP:

Light floors brighten the feeling of a room. Choose

lighter wall colors for an airy feeling or brighter

hues to make a bold statement. Choose neutral

floors when you want the versatility to work with

almost any furniture style.

Blonde and Light Brown Floors.

Who needs a wall of windows to brighten a room? Select blonde or light

brown floors to flood the room with tones of blonde, gold, honey or rich

caramel. Quick • Step ® offers a range of light to medium brown floors with

traditional wood looks in maple or oak along with more unique options

including alder or hickory. These floors create a perfect setting for

a range of wall colors from delicate pastels to deeper, bolder hues.

Our finishes finish the room. Texture is an important part

in the overall design of a room. You’ll find that Quick•Step ®

floors are available in a variety of styles from smooth, sleek

finishes to rich, rustic, hand-scraped textures.

Give your room sizzle with hot new ...

Auburn Floors.

Rich red and orange undertones can really warm up a room. They work

well with a variety of deeper wall colors and complement many popular

cabinetry and furniture selections. Available in a range of looks from

traditional species to unique exotics — including mahogany or Brazilian

cherry — these laminate floors are destined to be classics.

Bring exotic locales home. Quick•Step ® brings the look of

rich exotic woods like Hawaiian Koa within reach — and we

don’t harm endangered forests to bring them to you.

DESIGN TIP:

Some hardwood visuals are “warm” — meaning the

floors contain red or auburn undertones. These colors

lend vitality to the room and work best with neutral

or cooler tones for wall colors and accents.

Rich Brown Floors.

Darker floors not only ground a room, they create a warm, intimate

feeling. Set them against a lighter wall or surround them with rich hues

and they create a beautiful contrast to either light or dark furniture.

We go to great lengths for authentic looks. The look of rustic

flooring is trending in design and Quick•Step ® offers a variety

of these looks in single plank floors with wider, longer planks

for a truly authentic look.

DESIGN TIP:

Use medium and dark brown floors to create an

immediate impact in a space. They can contrast

with lighter shades and balance bolder, deeper tones.

Browns are available with both warm and cool

undertones, so they complement a spectrum of colors.

Design isn’t just black and white …

Grey and Black Floors.

Is grey the new black? Possibly. Grey is definitely increasing in popularity

both as a floor and wall color. Whether it’s a warm or cool hue, you’ll

find it in rustic oak planks or floors with wire-brushed detailing in browns

with smoky undertones. And for homeowners looking to make a strong

statement, a black floor like Tuxedo Pine from our Envique Collection

adds drama to a room like nothing else.

We’ve got you covered. When you purchase a Quick•Step ®

floor you’re covered by some of the best warranties in

the industry. Visit www.us.quick-step.com for complete

information on our residential and commercial warranties.

Style from the ground up.

If it’s time for a room renovation and you’re not sure where to

begin, you’ve come to the right place. You don’t have to start

from scratch, and you don’t have to do everything at once.

As long as you have a plan, there is no reason why you can’t

move forward in phases. A new floor and fresh colors are a

great start. Explore your individuality and design a space that

reflects your personal style.

Create a palatable palette!

Changing a color in a room is a great

way to brighten your space and

transform your point of view.

To create a fresh palette, start by choosing one or two key

colors for your room. Find an object or fabric and use it for

inspiration. Once you have a direction, create a new color

scheme. Think of the design process in layers — the trick is to

coordinate and contrast. If everything — paint, accessories,

furniture and flooring — is the same color, the room will

feel flat. So create drama by layering color with accessories

that can easily be changed or metallic accents that can add

brilliance to a color scheme. Remember, a well-executed

color palette can transform any space with great results.

Be your own floor-ista.

Quick •Step ® floors make it easy and affordable to give your

room the look that you want. And finding the right floor is easy.

Once you’ve landed on a color direction, it’s time

to select your perfect floor. You’ll find a range of

colors from light, neutral floors to blonde and light

brown floors, to richer reds, chocolate browns,

neutral greys and blacks. There are no hard and fast

existing cabinetry or furniture colors.

To help you in your selection we’ve categorized our

flooring collections from light to dark. Plus Erinn

has selected some of her favorite trend colors to

help you visualize color directions for your home.
