When decorating a space, whether it’s an apartment or something else, one of the first things you need to take care of is the flooring. Usually, wood is chosen because it makes the space feel warmer and more inviting and because it also has an elegant look. However, wood can be stained and painted in many different shades and colors.
Dark floors are particularly interesting. They tend to look dramatic but, at the same time, they are elegant and timeless and their versatility is just an impressive as their simplicity.
You can definitely use dark flooring to your advantage if you want to create an interior décor based on contrasts. For example, you could have a white area rug and white furniture in the room and this way you’ll create a timeless color combination that always looks amazing.
Another possibility is to work with a variety of colors and to make a smooth transition between the dark and light shades, with bold and colorful accents. The little touches of color often bring together everything else beautifully. To better visualize all these possibilities, have a look at the examples we’ve prepared.
