Design can be a tough battle to face when you have dark floors to work with. More times than not, lighter flooring is used, whether it be carpet, luxury vinyl tile, or hardwood, which gives you plenty of options when it comes to your decor. It's a different story when you have dark floors, as adding darker furniture or colors to your space can make your home appear smaller.
Choose Light Furniture & Wall Color
In order to contrast dark floors, choose a lighter color for your walls. Light walls give off the sense that your room is larger than it truly is, and at the same time, can make your room pop with the light and dark contrast. In regards to your furniture selection, light furniture is ideal for dark floors, as the furniture will help brighten the room.
