The drawback with dark wood floors is that they do show more dust, dirt, and grime than their lighter counterparts.

For this reason, they need to be cleaned regularly to look their best and aren’t always the most ideal option for high traffic areas.

Dark hardwood floors, however, are easily cleaned so don’t let that deter you.

Dark hardwood floors tend to absorb sunlight, while light hardwood reflects it, but that doesn't mean that dark floors will automatically make your room look smaller.

Avoid overloading the space with dark, heavy furniture as that will absorb light, making the space feel smaller and darker.

Stick to light colours on the wall and ceilings to keep the interior fresh and airy.

In order to get a deep rich colour, hardwood floors can be thermo treated.

This is a process where the wood is core fumed, creating a smokey undertone to the floor.

Depending on the treatment, some dark floors have a red tone to them.
