The Benefits of Dark Wood Flooring

We love dark wood flooring in the UK. It’s a popular choice for many of our customers, but some often find themselves put off by adding something so dark into their homes. Though it may seem like dark wooden flooring can make a room appear dull, dark and drab, it is actually perfect for contrasting light colours you may choose. Aesthetics aside, however, there are many benefits to dark wooden flooring you may not have even considered.

Fewer marks

Any proud homeowner will want to keep everything clean and tidy. However, we are all extremely busy, and sometimes there are marks that we simply do not get to in time. Thankfully, dark wood flooring (UK) can help your home stay looking fresh! The dark colours will hide any spills that may otherwise stain lighter coloured flooring, and scuffs and scratches will also be virtually invisible to the naked eye. This is perfect for those who don’t wish to spend time and money replacing any pieces that may be affected.

Offers proportion to big spaces

Almost every homeowner dream of expanding their space, whether it be for a growing family or simply for more storage solutions. However, when creating one large area, the interior design can often look unlived in or empty. This makes the room look cold and uninviting.

So, what do we do to combat this? Dark flooring of course! Dark flooring can be used to proportion the space, and as dark woods absorb more light than other colours, the room will feel cosier without losing any actual space.

This is also a great option for those who wish to create a minimalist design for their room. The dark floor will help break down the simplicity and still add a welcoming element into the space, so we highly recommend dark floors for those who like to keep things simple.

Less fading

When paying for new flooring, you have to know that what you are paying for is built to last. With a wide range of dark wooden vinyl flooring from Floorbay, you can relax knowing you have a high-quality product that will last.

However, keep in mind that a lot of exposed natural light can alter the appearance of the finish over time. This is usually more noticeable with light floors, but as we have already mentioned, dark floors absorb the light, allowing them too last longer.
