As a worthwhile investment, your wood floors will no doubt stand the test of time. But, once in a while, they may need a little facelift, be it because of scratches, stains or other superficial damage. Luckily, a wood floor refinishing service can efficiently, expertly redo your stunning installation. However, when the time comes, your team will have one big question for you: what color do you want your floors? If you’re not sure what to say, read the following tips to help point you in the right direction.

Mind the furniture, décor, and paint

Of course, though you may want to choose your favorite flooring color immediately, you’ll need to keep in mind the furniture, décor, and paint that’s already in the room. The last thing you’ll want is a clashing installation. Keep the fluidity of the room dynamics by opting for a color that contrasts with the other things in the space.

Deep colors for big spaces, lighter colors for small spaces

Typically, wood floor refinishing professionals recommend deep colors in spaces that are larger, or open, such as living rooms, dining rooms, and hallways. In doing so you get a heavy dose of character and impact appeal. Conversely, lighter tones are suggested for smaller areas, like bathrooms and powder rooms. If the color is too dark in these places, they take on a gloomy appearance, so opt for subtler colors that draw both natural and artificial light into your space.

Samples will give you “a clear picture”

Don't be shy to ask for samples to try out in the actual space. While in the showroom, your choice may look lovely, but what will it look like in the room, is the real question! As such, avoid unpleasant surprises by selecting a few of your preferred colors and bring them home. Place them in the room and look at them in different lighting conditions. This way, you'll know exactly what you're getting before your wood floor refinishing team renovates your installation.
