Wood floors not only add a touch of elegance to your home but also make your living area look bigger depending on the décor and wall color. Whether you decide to go with a natural or stained wood color, you should find wall colors that compliment your hardwood floors and design well. Here are some of the best wall colors that will bring out the beauty of your floors.

Colors for Light Hardwood

You can never go wrong with a neutral paint color that can complement your light hardwood floors perfectly. Colors like white or grey can be an amazing addition depending on what room you’re looking to repaint. If you want to keep it simple, you can go with white for the walls and trim and that will make sure all the attention goes to your floors regardless of your wood’s undertones.

When you opt for neutral shades, you are also leaving room to play around with seasonal accent colors all year round.

Colors for Cherry Hardwood

If your floors are cherry hardwood or have some red undertones, look to add contrast with a soft apricot or yellow wall color. There is plenty of room to work with so try looking for any colors that are muted or on the opposite side of the color wheel.

If you’re a color lover, then you might enjoy painting your walls a nice shade of blue or green. This choice can truly compliment the rich tone of the cherry hardwood floor.

Colors for Dark Hardwood

Dark hardwood floors are a beautiful choice and can add elegance and sophistication to any home. Dark hardwood floors tend to make spaces look smaller and cozier so any bright colors or color with golden undertones will the perfect match for your home.

If you like keeping up with trends, grey wall colors are the perfect addition to your home with light-colored furniture choices.  Greys do have numerous amounts of undertones so choose wisely or you could end up with a dominantly purple or blue wall.

Furniture Choices

Making sure that you love your home’s new look is important. If you already own the furniture that you’ll be placing in your home, then you’ll have to use that as guidance for your new wall color. Avoid using the same color shades and choose colors that contrast both your floors and furniture.

Another less common option can be to sell your current furniture pieces and purchase some that match the look that you’re aiming for, but this can be a tedious task.
