You want to make sure that you are happy with hardwood-floor you chose. There are different color options and you may feel excited by all of them. Below mentioned are the few points that you may consider while choosing the right color for your home.
1. First thing that you may want to keep in mind is the color of your furniture. You would not want the color of your wood floors to match the color of your furniture. Matching everything will make the room look jumbled. You should go for colors that compliment each other.
2. You should consider deep colors for your open rooms as this will allow the character of the floor to shine through. 3. If you have a small room that is limited when it comes natural lighting or the room already has darker colored walls, you should choose lighter colored wood flooring. Flooring that is too dark will create a sense of doom and gloom within the room. On the other hand, if you have a room that has light colored walls, then choosing a darker wood for the flooring will create a modern and contemporary look. Commonly, those who want to have art rooms or home office go with a black or deep red flooring.
4. Scratches on your hardwood floors are likely to happen in areas where pets and kids play. If you want to conceal these imperfections easily, choose a natural color wood floor that does not have a glossy finish. The scratches and dents will look like they belong and no one will know the difference. 5. When it comes to choose your hardwood flooring color, always ask for some wood samples and compare them at your home. You will be able to compare the samples with the color of your furniture. Without samples, you would not know how the flooring will look in your home and you may be surprised come installation.
One thing to keep in mind is that no two floors are exactly the same and you should leave a bit of room for a shade lighter or darker when it comes to the floor that will be installed in your home.
