Home Décor Ideas: Our Top Living Room Furniture Ideas For Rooms With Dark Wood Floors

When it comes to living room decoration, many of us forget to take into account the floors. Living room floors are a big expanse of space that can have a significant impact on the overall look and feel of your room’s design. We have many tips and guides on choosing living room furniture. In this blog, we take a look at the best living room furniture for dark wood floors, and the best ways to show them off.

Leather Sofa

A leather sofa (in particular a brown leather sofa) is a great option to pair with a dark wooden floor. A dark wooden floor is often associated with a more traditional interior look, which is why a traditional leather sofa looks smart and elegant.

Walnut Legs

We have four leg stain colour options for our furniture, and we think the best choice for dark wood floors is our Walnut stain. A lovely dark, ashy-colour wood stain on solid beech legs makes for a beautiful finishing touch to our furniture pieces; especially those with traditional turned wooden legs like Darcy, Hartfield and Holmes.

Ebony Legs

Continuing the dark wooden theme, our Ebony stained legs work very well with dark wooden floors, but have a touch more of a modern feel about them. The ebony leg stain looks particularly striking against our gold castors.

Light-coloured Fabrics

Flooring is a vast expanse of space, and when it’s dark, it can have a significant impact on the room, making it feel much smaller and darker. That’s why we suggest choosing lighter coloured fabrics to help offset the dark colour. Cream, light grey and blush pink upholstery is ideal for a living room with dark wood floors and will instantly give it a lift.

Velvet Sofas

Light-coloured fabrics aren’t for everyone, so if you’re someone who embraces dark décor, we think a luxurious velvet sofa in a deep purple, navy or gun-metal grey would look superb in a living room with dark wooden floors. Embrace the dark tones and pick a solid paint hue for the walls, something like Farrow & Ball’s ‘Hague Blue’ would be ideal.
