Black and light wood flooring are each popular styles. Light wood flooring is loved for its bright, natural, beachy look, whereas black wood flooring is known for being more refined, polished and sophisticated.
Many people choose to contrast their dark wood floors with lighter colours, although you don’t have to. In fact, choosing furniture that closely matches your floors is a simple way to make the room feel more coordinated and luxurious.
When done well, both styles of floor can open up a room to create a more spacious and inviting feel. The downside of light wood floors is that they reflect sunlight, showing every scratch and imperfection. Whereas dark wood floors absorb the light, which helps to prevent fading and make the space feel much bigger than it is. If scratches are a concern, then choosing our engineered wood collection is a great choice, as it offers fantastic scratch resistant properties. Whether you decide to go for a light or black wood flooring, Underfoot have a variety of solutions to suit your needs.
