Your flooring choice will cover one of the largest surface areas in your home, so it is important to select a floor you know will both compliment your design aesthetic and stand the test of time.
As it is often the most dominant design look, the color of the floor you select sets the tone for the space, so it is important to ask yourself, “What do I want the design of my home to say?”.
When to consider light hardwood floor colors?
- Selecting a light hardwood floor will brighten your space as the light, fresh color opens up the space, making smaller spaces appear larger.
- Lighter floors tend to accentuate the amount of natural light that comes into the room and give your home an airy, bright feel.
If you are a fan of contrast but don’t want a smaller room in your home to perhaps appear smaller with a dark hardwood, go with a lighter floor color and bring in contrast with paint, furniture, and other décor elements to accentuate the living spaces.
