If your home has dark hardwood floors, you might be looking for ideas to feature and highlight them further – after all, this type of flooring has a certain sense of elegance that makes homes feel cozy and sophisticated all at once. That said, it’s not always easy to establish the ambiance you’re hoping for, especially when it comes to picking paint colors. Here are a few paint color schemes that tend to pair incredibly well with dark hardwood flooring, so that you can make your space feel cozy, homey, and spectacular!

Classic White

White has been used in interior design for centuries, and this crisp, clean color can provide the perfect backdrop for virtually all other colors, styles, and types of home décor. It tends to create a feeling of spaciousness, which can make any room feel more open and inviting; paired with hardwood flooring, this feeling is magnified even further. If classic white is a little too stark for you, you might also consider off-white variants such as cream or beige. No matter what you select, you’ll feel impressed at the visuality it can add to your home if paired with dark wood floors.

Shades of Gray

A soft gray hue can provide a very subtle backdrop for your dark wood floors and enhance their natural warmth more than any shade of white. However, just keep in mind the level of depth this color can also add to a space – this is why lighter grays tend to be better suited for most spaces. Also, note that certain dark wood floors come in shades of grays, and it’s recommended that you don’t pair other grays with them as it might cause your space to feel devoid of character, or too sterile.

Consider Colorful Accent Walls

Maybe you’re having trouble committing to just one color, or maybe you don’t like the idea of having a lot of your home repainted. If so, you might consider painting accent walls, rather than all of your walls. Choosing just one wall to paint as an accent wall is a nice way to explore your design dreams without going too far over the edge. That one pop of color on a single wall will give your space all the same benefits, letting you make a large statement without making a large commitment. In terms of color, truly select something that you love! Soft pastels tend to work quite well on accent walls; complementary colors also tend to work well if you want to give your room some nice, warm contrast.

The bottom line is that you have quite a lot of freedom when it comes to painting your home, and if you have dark hardwood floors that you want to highlight, you aren’t really limited at all! That said, if you still have questions or concerns about which painting route to take, don’t hesitate to speak with a team of professionals for expert insight and guidance.
