Add drama with dark flooring

More often than not people tend to go for lighter, more traditional colored flooring.  Wood floors are often laid in Oak and Pine, which are beautiful but common.


For a more daring and stylish flooring choice take a look at dark flooring options.  Used well, a dark wood or stone floor can set the mood of a room, and can be used to highlight the other aspects of the space.  For instance in this image opposite the dark wood flooring actually accentuates the beautiful white wooden roof and beams; the light coloured sofa and rug really stand out as individual features.  These aspects of the room could have become lost with a lighter wooden floor.


Dark floor also have a very practical purpose - they don't show up dirt as easily!  In a busy family home the floors will inevitably get dirty rather quickly, with mud and spills and shoe scuffs etc.  Using dark stone, such as the beautiful deep "Furnace" tiles in the picture opposite (from Fired Earth), in high foot traffic areas like the hallway and kitchen will keep a busy home looking stylish and clean.
