There are many reasons that people choose to add hardwood floors to their homes, but one of the most common reasons is the design elements that hardwood floors provide to a room. In the years that Floor Expo has been fortunate enough to install hardwood floors in the New Jersey area, we’ve seen the many benefits that hardwood floors provide to a design. Let’s talk about a few of them.

Dark Hardwood Floor

Aside from being incredibly in style, dark hardwood floors are a fantastic way to really open up a room. Whether you have a room that is genuinely just small in size, has low ceilings, or looks overcrowded with the furniture that you’ve added to it, dark floors are a saving grace. While adding more square footage to the room would be ideal, it’s not always in the budget to make this happen. If that’s the case for you, you absolutely should consider adding dark hardwood floors to the room.

Hardwood floors that are dark in color are known for making a space look larger because of the contrast that they provide. If you paint the room a lighter color, the overall contrast can definitely help open up a space and make the room look taller, larger, and overall cleaner. It’s a design trick that we love being able to utilize in a home.

Ability to Choose Stains

Being able to have a say in the color of your hardwood flooring is yet another reason that so many people love being able to add hardwood floors to their home. Whether you’re looking for a way to lighten up the room, make it look larger, or it’s simply time for an updated look, the stain options available through hardwood floors are one of the only ways that you are given the opportunity to control these factors.

While carpet, tile, and linoleum floors are all certainly fantastic options in the right time and place, there’s something about hardwood floors and the freedom they give you that we love. And our favorite part is, at the end of the day, you are sure to enjoy a luxurious and beautiful finished product.

Easy to Design Around

The last point that we want to cover is one that many design enthusiasts will agree with; hardwood floors are easy to incorporate into a wide array of designs. Given that they are often a neutral color, you can add them to just about any color scheme or design theme and can count on them being a hit. If you’re looking for a way to improve the aesthetics of the room in a way that can easily be designed around, hardwood floors are a great place to start.
