Colors of hardwood

Hardwood comes in various textures and distinct colors that can be modified with finishes and stains. Gray in a neutral gray hue is ideal for grounding a space that is otherwise bold and bright. It is a wonderful hardwood color that nicely tones down the vibe.

Light brown hardwood is a good choice for small rooms that have dark walls. It removes the gloomy, dense look. Rooms having low ceilings and light color walls are also excellent locations for light brown hardwood.

Dark brown hardwood floors add value and beauty to a home. Homeowners often choose dark brown hardwood to add richness and depth to the interior design. An inviting contrast is created with metallic or light wood furnishings and crisp white walls.

Natural colored hardwood such as white or red oak ranges from nearly white sapwood,to brown or tan heartwood. Creamy, soft colors make a room feel airy and light. It can be interpreted as refined elegance,or casual, unfussy modern. The legendary durability and beauty of oak are both endearing and enduring.
