Very light and dark hardwood floors are fashionable today, so you'll be part of the in-crowd if you choose a shade on either end of the color spectrum. However, time-honored medium colors are still desired by homeowners who prefer traditional home decor.
Bisek Interiors in Montgomery, MN, offers a wide range of wood flooring styles, so you're sure to find the perfect plank for your home, regardless of your decorating style.
Size of room
Typically, homeowners choose to expand a small space by installing a light-colored wood floor or creating a cozier space by choosing dark-colored wood for a large room.
Other room decors can influence this trend; for example, a small all-white room balances a dark-colored wood floor to create a pleasant ambiance. With open spaces, a deep color brings the floor 'front and center,' allowing the engineered or solid hardwood flooring character to shine through.
The amount of light in a room and whether that light is natural or artificial affects how you perceive the color of your wood floor. For example, if you favor a light-colored floor and walls in a room with many windows, you may find the room too bright; thus, a darker shade of wood is preferable.
Keep in mind that dark hardwood absorbs sunlight while light hardwood reflects it, which means that darker wood fades less over time.
