When it comes to flooring options for the kitchen, the tiles may be the most common choice. However, these days hardwood flooring is getting quite popular, and it can be found in different design and shade. The dark wood floors are better choice and they can create an elegant look. Today, we have chosen several Modern Kitchens With Eye-Catching Dark Wood Floors that may get you inspired to incorporate some into your kitchen.
Wood floors can give a warmth to the kitchen, which is not the case with the tile floors. Dark wood floors can give the space an elegant and rich look perfect when they contrast to the light colored walls. The rest of the kitchen decor, in terms of design and colors, should be chosen wisely because otherwise the space may look too dark. If there is wood furniture, it should always be a few shades lighter. So, the black wood floors should be combined with pale wood furniture.
Dark floors can give the dull home a brighter look, as long as it is paired with the right colors, patterns and materials. Besides choosing the right shade for the flooring, there are also many patterns to choose from. Wood floors can be installed in strips or planks. The first ones are less than 3 inches wide, and the other ones can be found between 3-8 inches wide. Another type of wood flooring is the parquet flooring – a floor laid in geometric designs.
Dark wood floors may require more effort, when it comes to cleanliness. Dust can be more visible on the dark surface, so you should clean it more often. However, wood floors are better for your feet and back, than the tiles. Wood flooring can be a good option for versatile kitchen designs, including rustic, modern, minimalist, luxury, industrial etc. Wood flooring can be quite expensive, but they are definitely something worth investing into. One thing that needs to be considered when choosing wood flooring is its durability. Maple wood is considered as a strong and resilient type of wood, so, this one is the best choice, if you have kids and pets. Other types of wood that you can choose from are oak, bamboo and walnut.
