Dark oak flooring

From subtle hints of mahogany to blackest black – Ecohadwood Ltd engineered dark oak flooring collection will suit everyone’s taste.

Dark hardwood is timeless and classic, but you can easily blend it in a contemporary interior and style it up with modern furniture. Because of its versatility this type of engineered oak flooring is a common choice between the UK and overseas customers.

How to style a space with dark oak flooring

You have probably already seen various design ideas online of how to match the rest of the colours, furniture and accessories in a room that has dark hardwood floors.

Thinking of what shade of paint to choose for the walls? There may be an infinity, but let’s narrow it down. First of all, we would recommend skipping pitch dark colours for the walls, because the you already have dark oak flooring installed. The space may look too moody especially if there is not much natural light coming in. Rooms in many traditional UK homes tend to be relatively small already and dark colours make such rooms look visually smaller. Your best bet would be good old pale and grey shades to create a nice and sophisticated look along with dark wooden flooring. It can be anything from off white, ecru, ivory, eggshell, white, beige, greige etc. If you think that simply painting walls is boring, wallpaper options are limitless.

Dark hardwood flooring and furniture

Once you have floors and walls done, it will become easier to visualise what shape and form furniture you wish to buy. If you went for pale walls and dark hardwood flooring, you can continue building up a space in monochrome details, such as furniture and accessories or bring a subtle touch of colour. For instance, dark navy shelves, sofa or chairs would make a room look nicely vibrant. If you don’t want colour furniture, you can always play with smaller accessories, such as vases or flower pots.

Wooden chairs and tables will also go perfectly with dark oak flooring and they don’t necessarily have to be the same shade as the flooring. In fact, lighter tones of wooden furniture would look classier.

To complete the whole image, depending on how big of a space you have, we suggest adding a small or medium size rug. It especially works nicely in a sitting area or simply under a coffee table.

All of the accessories may be bought from online suppliers and in-stores where you can find plenty of both cheap and expensive costing items.

Ecohardwood Ltd engineered dark wooden flooring is top quality and hardwearing, but just like any other item in your house needs care. Along with maintenance on a daily basis we recommend using felted pads on the furniture to avoid scratches.
