Dark or Light Floor for Your Home Decor

Light or dark floors? The truth is that both can provide completely different interior looks and you should consider carefully before making the decision. You can make a contrast in your light interior using dark flooring, but these floors show the dirt, and light flooring may not be the right solution too. You are the one that should make the final decision. If you are not sure, ask a professional to point you in the right direction. 

A dark wood floor is a very popular interior solution because you can achieve a great contrast with it in every room including hallway and kitchen. Design a dark wood floor living room and enjoy the beautiful days with your family and friends. Spaces with such floors are not just a decorative addition, but also a durable choice that can withstand damage and high traffic. Dark floors also give you a chance to experiment and contrast with a variety of design elements and colors and personalize your living room the way you like it.

Light Flooring

When To Choose Light Flooring

For those who are not sure about incorporating dark flooring in their interior designs, but still like the look of brownish flooring, semi-dark or multi-toned boards are a great choice. While most homeowners who have installed dark hardwood flooring will tell you that this type of floor looks astonishing, they may also mention that it has the potential to show all the dirt, dust and pet hair too. For those who love a home that appears clean and tidy, this may cause an issue. On the other hand, light flooring can make any room look more spacious. This makes this flooring an ideal solution for dark rooms that receive little natural light. However, your choice will depend on the look you want for your home.

When To Choose Dark Flooring

If you want to experiment with dark floors you may consider the classic interior look that teams light-colored or neutral walls and dark floors. For the more modern look and colorful ambiance mix these floors with more intense wall colors like ruby red or butter yellow - combined with dado rail and dark skirting boards. If you want to create a rustic feel, then dark floors are an excellent idea for you. However, genuine wooden flooring is not your only option, as nowadays there are so many floor designs, including luxury vinyl, laminate or bamboo that are difficult to notice that are not made from solid wood. The best part about these floors is the convenience of being extremely easy to maintain and clean. If your room is south-facing or naturally dark, then dark floors can make it appear much darker than it really is. So, to prevent your space from appearing too gloomy, consider teaming up the wooden flooring with light-colored walls. Remember that with dark colors you are risking making tiny rooms 'heavier' than necessary. But, if you overcome this risk with appropriate balancing of colors a sophisticated room is still possible.
