Hardwood naturally spans a variety of shades. While this means you can find the perfect hardwood color to match practically any home decor, it can be daunting to settle on a specific shade when you have so many options. Floor Coverings International® of Avon Lake is happy to guide you through some main color groupings and the mood they create, so you can make the best decision for your Avon Lake home.

Light Hardwood Flooring

For a bright, airy, and contemporary look, opt for light hardwood flooring! Light wood shades add natural warmth and can be found in a variety of styles. Consider white oak, beech, or birch to get this look. Not only do light hardwoods brighten your space, but they can actually make it appear bigger, too. Modern interior trends are moving to the very ends of the spectrum when it comes to color and white-washed or light-stained hardwood have become very popular.

Mid-Toned Hardwood Flooring

For classic, natural beauty, go with mid-toned hardwoods such as hickory or walnut. This is a traditional shade for hardwood flooring, and will suit most decor. Welcoming, warm, and understated, mid-toned hardwood will allow the natural beauty of hardwood to shine through. You’ll also have greater variety in the species of hardwood you choose, as most species fall between mid-to-light brown on the color spectrum.

Red Hardwood Flooring

Red hardwood is warm, vibrant, and eye-catching. Consider cherry or mahogany hardwood flooring, which have bright, vivid red hues. This flooring will add energy and class to your home. Pair this flooring with neutral colors to avoid a home that feels cluttered or overwhelming. For a more muted and understated red flooring, choose red oak or maple. Instead of vibrant red, these hardwoods have a softer, pinkish hue.

Dark Hardwood Flooring

For a dramatic, eye-catching flooring, dark hardwood is a perfect choice. Black hardwood, which is either painted or stained, is an ultra-modern and intense look. Hardwood in a shade of deep brown melds the classic beauty of hardwood with a dramatic twist. Dark red hardwood is warm, stunning, and makes a statement.
