Your bedroom is the one room in your home that is all yours, and it should represent your personality and style. Dark wood floors can add tons of character to your space, creating a classy, modern look.
Although dark wood floors are a beautiful addition to your home, they do have a few drawbacks. Floors that are dark in color can make a room appear smaller in size due to the deep color.
Dust, crumbs, pet hair, and scratches also show up very well against dark colors, making them a bit high maintenance. Keeping these floors looking clean may require more frequent upkeep than lighter colored floors.
The challenge of keeping your dark wood floors looking pristine is well worth the extra work, as you will see in the examples below.
