Anyway, dark hardwood floors have been on trend for a very long time, and they appear to be here to stay. Whatever design aesthetic you are attempting to achieve in your home, dark wood can accommodate and should be a consideration for you. Dark hardwood floors are incredibly versatile.Especially for fans of contrast, dark floors against light furniture or cabinetry makes for an elegant design. Now some may be worried about keeping it clean… As long as you’re honest with yourself about your cleaning regimen, there shouldn’t ever be an issue. A wide dark wood plank can also give the impression of an even larger space to the eye, so it can be more bang for your buck. We wouldn’t recommend a dark floor in a small, tiny room with little light. Or along with dark furniture/cabinets because it can be hard to match with other dark components at times. The pros definitely outweigh the cons, but of course these are all things to consider when making an investment in your home such as hardwood flooring.
