Dark Floors in the Interior

When it comes to choosing the right floors for a new house, flat or office, some of us might wish for dark floors.

Those who are not afraid to experiment and choose the dark floors, will enjoy in sophisticated and elegant, yet warm appearance of their newly decorated rooms. Depending on the fact whether the room in which you are planning to put dark floors is well or badly lit, you will decide whether to put it in the first place.

For a well lit space it is not difficult to choose the colour and the nuance of the flooring. While badly lit spaces need lighter colours of dark flooring, such as cherry flooring, or oak and ash flooring in cognac colour. It is important, especially in smaller spaces, to connect the walls with the floors while together they should create a sense of depth and not a sense of stifling.

One way to make your room more beautiful is to paint the most prominent wall in a dark and warm colour. It should not be the one with the window or the one across it. In that way you get a comfortable, intimate atmosphere.Pay attention not to cover the dark floors with furniture or carpets and mats. They look good without any mats.

If you still choose to cover these floors, make sure to use light colours and smaller dimensions of mats or carpets. If you choose a classic vintage look, or you want a modern design with character, or an elegant, sophisticated atmosphere, or you just want to be different, dark floors will definitely help you to achieve that.

If you are not pushed away by everyday cleaning, you will be more than satisfied with the appearance of your rooms – because, you have achieved so much using so little.
