Another year is almost over, so it’s time to reflect on the trends that we saw come to the forefront in the world of interior design. In this week’s blog, discover the secrets to choosing one of the hottest flooring trends of the year – dark wood flooring!
Create a light and airy space with a dark floor
This might sound counter-intuitive, but a dark floor is a great choice if you want to create a light space. Not only do we get to appreciate its gorgeous, luxurious colour, a dark floor will highlight the lighter, brighter colours of the room. This ultimately makes your room appear larger, elongating the walls to create a taller room.
Get rustic with a distressed, dark floor
For those who love more traditional styles, a dark floor which has been distressed is absolutely ideal. Distressed floors show off the authentic appearance of real wood, highlighting its natural knots, grains, and imperfections. This type of floor would help you to create a traditional and sophisticated style, but it would also be perfect to mix with more modern pieces, like in this kitchen below.
Add a certain sophistication with a rich, walnut floor
Dark floors come in all shapes and sizes – a walnut flooring will look significantly different to an oak floor. With walnut, we can really see the richness of the dark colour which makes for a luxurious effect. This lacquered product boasts a sleek and smooth appearance and perfectly accentuates the lighter, brighter tones of the walls and furnishings.
