The Dark Side
Want to make a statement? Dark stained hardwood floors often beautifully contrast with bright whites, grays, flat black, and not to mention, the very popular white kitchen cabinet trend! Although darker floors of black, charcoal, dark gray, and espresso brown are beautiful, they tend to show dust and debris on the floor and can make your room appear smaller. That being said, interior designers are predicting the darker colors to be around for quite some time due to the industry’s preference for black and dark gray floors.
The Bright Side
As you start to look around the market, you will see bamboo, light maple, driftwood, and light grays. Lighter-colored floors do not show as much dust and debris as darker floors. Also, lighter-colored floors make a room look much larger and brighter, especially if you have high ceilings. We are always partial to the darker, traditional hardwood floor colors of the past, but we are really starting to love these newer lighter floor colors and have become a converted fan! Expect for this trend to be around for quite some time.
