backdrop and setting question

I love my new "hardwood" floor, but Im starting to have repeat customers that want a change of pace. Not that they dont like the floor, but they just want something totally different.
Im wondering how you all make things look different and new when the customers come back for the next shoot? I have a nice neutral/ green and grey background with my floor now. I have a brown backdrop but its not warm enough to go with my floor. What other colors work well with them?

Here is an example of what my set up looks like:
16 copy
I also have a black, dark blue, chocolate pudding, and white background... I dont think any of those would be exciting next to this floor.

well, do you have to use the floor? can you use plexiglass? I only recently got my floor, and really only take pictures of my own kids so I don't think I'm much help. I'm interested in your replies though.

What about getting a bamboo style ''floor'' - they're sold kind of like rugs... maybe in a nice dark shade or a cherry.. ? That's what I want to do, I've got a set up like yours, but I've been trying to get my hands on the bamboo! I was wondering about this change of pace thing the other day.... great question!

Ill try just a regular background like I used to do and add the plexi when it would work out.
I dont have any extra $$ right now to get a different type of floor, but I hadnt thought of it before.
Thanks for your ideas Gwen and Molly!
