Decorating a Home with Dark Wood Floors


Dark wood is one of the most elegant and sophisticated interior solutions for a home. Whether it is an entire home of dark wood floors or selected rooms,  it brings richness and classic elegance to a space. However, it is paired with the incorrect furniture, then the space look like dark, heavy and uninviting. Check out some tips below on bringing out the beauty of dark wood.

 

White Architectural Details: Balance out the dark wood by adding white everywhere: in the home architecture and as well as the furniture. White can be used to highlight a room door, floor and crown moldings, window trims, or simply the color of the wall. Against the dark wood, white automatically catches the eye and is visually pleasing to look at. White can also be added to the walls, to balance the warmth of the dark wood and neutralize the look and feel of the space. As colors, white and dark wood are very neutral. Therefore, any pop of color can also be added to the room to balance it out. More on that idea is given below.

Light Wood Furniture: Another way to balance out the dark wood is to add contrast with pale or light wood. Keep the floors dark and add pale wood furniture pieces to create a more cheerful space. It is very harmonious and still adds the same warmth of the hardwood without looking overbearing or stark. Light wood furniture can be added with white accents to create a more homely and inviting atmosphere.

Brighter Colors Plus White: Bright colors are always an instant contrast to dark wood. It adds immediate color and makes the room look much brighter. Bright hues can also be added with white. With an airy white tone and a warm, dark wood tone, color is a great way to add instant pops or color and accents in any room. With much brighter colors around the room, the eye line is drawn upward towards the colors and away from the floor. As a result, the dark flooring is barely noticeable, yet serves as a balancing neutral for the bright, bold tones in the room.
