How to use dark wood floors to give your home a luxurious feel

Dark wood floors bring elegance to any space. Choose furniture in complementary shades to create a sense of harmony, paired with jewel-toned accents for a subtle pop of colour. Dramatically dark floors with natural wood grains create a sense of quality from the feet up. Further this with elemental furniture, from a moody black marble table to a golden lampstand. A tactile, rounded couch can add a sense of soft comfort in the room.

Top tips:

  • Matching your furniture legs to the floor is a simple way to make your room feel stylish and cohesive.
  • Take inspiration from your favourite piece of art and highlight elements of the colour palette throughout your living space.
  • Scandi decor has had its day; deep, rich tones summon a sense of mid-century styling, which will never go out of favour.
  • Choose warm furniture fabrics to suit your chocolate-brown flooring. Mustard or tan is a classic choice which can really be brought to life with a touch of greenery.
