The appearance of hard wood flooring has always been one associated with luxury. Part of the beauty of it lies in its versatility. Whether you wish to create a contemporary feel, a Tuscan look or that of the traditional, classic English farmhouse, amongst many others – it’s all possible.
It’s well known that hard wood floor isn’t cheap either and with Christmas fast approaching, ambience is the latest thing people are striving to achieve and by using dark tones this can easily be achieved by following a few design pointers.
Dark tones are quite large in terms of the variety on offer. For tones dark wood floors oak it is advised that the room has access to a large amount of natural light. Without access to this type of light source dark hard wood flooring can make the room appear too dark, in effect losing this sense of ambience and could make the room seem claustrophobic.
This could be solved by contrasting lighter coloured furniture with dark wood flooring; when done correctly this can help greatly in providing a contrast which ultimately results in warmth.
It would be recommended not try and combine too much dark furniture with an already dark toned hard wood floorboard. Even if there is a great amount of natural light, at night it could result in the creation of an effect that is too cold and dramatic, thus killing any chances of the warm ambient feel.
