When it is time to repaint your home you often think of a number of different features inside your home that will determine the next color. Many people will focus on the décor and furnishings. However, many people never consider their floors and how they can affect the color of the walls. One type of floor particularly that can have a major influence on the color of your walls is hardwood flooring. Hardwood flooring comes in many colors and the wood coloring can have a major effect on the walls. L.W. Winslow Painting, Inc will share a few paint and hardwood floor color combinations that work well together to help determine your walls new color.
Best Wall Paint Colors to Go with Honey Oak & Light Hardwood Floors
For lighter hardwood floor colors it helps to bring in more light to a home and even make the home feel and look cleaner. Light colored hardwood floors have been very popular. You will see many homes with white and gray wood floors. When installing lighter colored hardwood floors, you will have more options when painting your walls. White, cream, or gray hardwood floors are very neutral colors which provides you more color choices. However, we find that lighter pastel colors, such as blues and gray look great with lighter toned floors. Brown colors also work well with lighter colored hardwood floors and the right tone can really help set off the home. When painting in rooms with lighter toned floors, make sure to use a semi-gloss sheen as flat or matte paint can have a negative effect and even make the floor look dull.
What Wall Colors Go with Brazilian Cherry Floors?
Cherry hardwood floors are such a classic flooring and are found in many homes. The rich cherry wood color adds elegance to any home. With such rich color in the wood, often the wrong colors on the wall can ruin the elegance of the floors as well as the home. When cherry hardwood floors are installed inside the home sometimes the best color to paint the walls is white. White can help make cherry hardwood floors pop and add more elegance to the home. However, for those who like color in their home, green hues are a great contrasting color you can also use. However, avoid green with too much yellow undertone. Blues and grays also work well with cherry hardwood floors. With such intense color of the wood make sure to stay with pastel versus bold colors.
Wall Paint Colors for Dark Wood Floors
Dark hardwood floors have a deep color such as dark brown and some are even almost black. These darker colored hardwood floors often look the best with lighter colors. When the walls are dark along with the floor it can make the room look cramped and uncomfortable. Again, pastels and white look great with dark hued floors. With dark brown wood color, neutral colored walls are best. Using lighter hues of greens, browns, or whites can help make the room feel warm and add a touch of elegance to the home.
