Should you choose light or dark wooden flooring?
We at Source wood floors
are able to give you more and more choice in varying styles, colours and finishes of wood flooring. Having a solid wood floor installed in your home is becoming a firm favourite when people decide to redecorate. One of the benefits of a wood floor is that it is timeless and with this comes the hidden benefit that it will help you to sell your house. Another benefit is that it is easily installed. The only major decision you have to make is what style of wood flooring and which room do you want to install it in. Wooden flooring is currently available in a variety of shades- from very light to very dark- and deciding whether to opt for light or dark flooring is one of the most important decisions which needs to be made. Deciding on whether to go light or dark doesn’t have to eat away at a huge chunk of your time though, as thinking about a couple of simple things can assist you in making the right decision. When it comes to restyling your living room, people often feel that if you make it too modern and contemporary it becomes cold and uninviting. So they often tend to choose wood flooring to make it more traditional. Similar to the living room, the bedroom can also be enhanced with wood flooring. So which rooms would be better enhanced with a light floor and which rooms would benefit from a darker floor? We have included some photos of rooms that have light-dark flooring. Obviously if you have a small dark room then the benefit would be a light wood floor, and if your rooms are vast then you are able to benefit from a dark floor, no matter what your furniture style.
Light and dark wooden flooring can offer very different looks, and your personal preference will undoubtedly play a huge part in your decision. However, you should also think about a few other things, such as whether flooring is likely to be subjected to frequent accidental liquid spills or heavy and grubby foot traffic. For instance a highly polished wood flooring that shines can be extremely inviting as it brings warmth to any room. Those who want a wooden floor which creates an inviting yet formal look should opt for darker hardwood flooring as opposed to those in lighter shades and for those who want understated beauty, it is a good option.
