Dark colours for hardwood flooring has been a trend for several years now, but the requests are growing for the colour stains to become increasingly darker and cooler in tone. Dark flooring trends favor the ultra-modern and clean home designs, with your floors contrasting with white or light walls and furniture for a fresh, clean and contemporary look.

While it is true that dark floors tend to show dirt and pet hair more readily, if you have the right tools, it is quick and easy to vacuum, sweep or dry mop and keep your floors looking fresh and chic.
