Light or dark-colored hardwood flooring is often a personal choice, although some décor styles fair better with one or the other. In today’s post, we’re going to tell you more about these options, what they have to offer, and whether one is better for you than the others, so read along with us here.

Hardwood flooring offers many choices


In addition to one of the most extended lifespans in the industry, hardwood flooring offers extensive visual customizations, including texture, installation layout, and color. For example, color can change how your floors look and feel in any given room, affecting which one you prefer for your home.

Light-colored hardwood offers an easier-to-clean surface that hides scuffs, scratches, and stains a little better than darker colors. But it can also enlarge your space, making it feel larger, especially with many natural light accents.

Dark-colored wood floors offer a richer, more elegant appearance that isn’t nearly as susceptible to fading because it tends to absorb light. You’ll also find it accentuates the natural wood grain and makes a dramatic appearance, especially when paired with specific décor and trim colors, so be sure to stop by to find out more about your options.
