What color furniture goes best with dark wood floors?There are no hard and fast rules as to what furniture goes best with dark wood floors, as it all depends on:
- the effect you want to create, and
- the purpose of the room.
What color cabinets will work best with dark wood floors?Wooden furniture should complement the color of the floor, being either a lighter or darker shade, or a contrasting varnish. Painted cabinets should be lighter: you can play with contrast to your heart's delight as long as you avoid a glaring, shiny white.
What color walls will work best with dark wood floors?Red or amber walls could be a dramatic option: they will create a very modern, eclectic, and warm bedroom space. As a rule, light colors such as off-white and eggshell work best - particularly for living rooms. The contrast created by the light walls and dark floors creates exactly the right kind of interplay between dark and light, heighten and enlarges a room, and you are all but limited in your choice of furnishings against this combination.
