Bold & beautiful | Dark wood flooring interior ideas

Nov 01, 2022

Dark oak wood flooring is a bold choice and not for the faint-hearted. However, when paired with the correct decor, it can create a timeless, sophisticated, and confident interior.

With shades ranging from hints of mahogany to blackest black, Ecohardwood engineered dark oak flooring collection is sure to meet everyone's needs. For example, Tobacco >> is a deep, rich, natural solid shade. It looks great over Character >> grade oak boards. The use of Tobacco colour to cover cracks, and large or tiny knots, smooths contrast while maintaining a natural look. The Brown Coffee >> oak flooring will add that extra kick to many interiors. One of Ecohardwood's most popular engineered oak flooring colours is Walnut >>. It is lush, warm, and naturally beautiful.

These tips and hints, along with the interiors featuring Ecohardwood engineered oak flooring in dark shades, will give you some inspiration for your renovation project. 

Dark wood flooring in small spaces

The common belief is that dark wood shrinks rooms and makes them too dark, but when balanced with other interior choices, it has the opposite effect. When decorating a small room, dark floors add drama and intimacy and ground the space, making it look more sophisticated and giving it a more prominent appearance. A space can appear bigger when the dark wooden flooring is combined with a cooling, light wall colour.

Projects featuring dark wood floors

These projects feature Ecohardwood engineered oak flooring that is designed to create a stylish, refined space. Dark wood floors enhance golden tones and classic details. Consider pairing your dark wood floors with leather details for a masculine look.

Chevron >> or Herringbone >> patterned dark wood floors will look particularly elegant and luxurious.

Rustic wood flooring interior

Keeping things simple is always a good idea. Using the same colour for solid oak floors and doors creates harmony and aesthetics.

The Walnut colour highlights this rustic interior, and oil is used as a finishing touch. Walnut is one of Ecohardwood's most popular colours. It is lush, warm, and naturally beautiful. It looks great with rustic oak floorboards of a more branched character grade.

We can see the artistic works that nature has created right in front of us: textures and characters instead of a monotone or dull baseboard. The forest outside the window is extended onto the floor, connecting indoor and outdoor spaces.

Colourful wood flooring interiors

Because dark floors don't show graining as easily, they create a more uniform look and less colour variation. So furniture that is coloured or contrasts with the décor will stand out.

Black and white contrast

This project uses white kitchen cabinets with Ebony Chevron flooring.

Combinations of black (or dark) and white are always stylish and classy.

Dark wood flooring decadence

A dramatic and decadent effect can be achieved by combining dark engineered oak flooring with dark interior pieces such as black kitchen cabinets and black furniture.

Hamilford Design have used Ecohardwood floors across multiple projects. The product is incredible and the team are extremely professional and efficient. We look forward to working with them in the future!
Highly motivated approach to customer service, exceptionally high quality flooring, delivered exactly on the day that was first estimated, extremely pleased and satisfied with the whole experience and will be placing another order in the next month or two for phase 2 of my flooring project.
We popped down to the showroom last year and ordered 2-layer Ivory, brushed character planks which we saw online. It was worth the journey as the planks are as beautiful as we thought. We also wanted flooring that the builder would enjoy working with as there is a lot of floor. Fircim Bici (our builder) was really impressed with the quality. But most of all, we have lived with this floor for five months and had many comments as it how beautiful it is.
Our experience at Indomo Ltd has always been positive with Ecohardwood. Their flooring offers an ideal balance between quality and price while being eco-friendly, which is perfect for our clients. The prompt arrival of samples and friendly customer service made the experience smooth. We have specified their flooring throughout the spaces of our project, including the kitchen, as we trust its durability and versatility.
We recently collaborated with Ecohardwoods for our project in Ealing, and I must say, the experience was outstanding. A special thanks to Irmantas for his invaluable assistance. His expertise in engineered wood was evident in the quality of materials we received. The precision and quality of their engineered wood contributed immensely to the aesthetic and durability of our project. Our clients were extremely pleased with the results. Kudos to Irmantas and the Ecohardwoods team for their exemplary service and top-tier products. Highly recommend them for anyone in need of premium engineered wood supplies.
