Hardwood floors are among the most popular interior design choices these days, chosen by homeowners everywhere and used to completely transform and elevate spaces. They’re beautiful, versatile, durable, and made from natural materials—what’s not to love? But did you know that you can make these floors look even better by complementing them with certain paint colors? Keep reading for some awesome ideas for paint color schemes that pair quite well with dark hardwood floors!

1. Classic White

When you think of light colors, white probably stands out as the obvious choice. It’s time-tested and has been used in modern design for centuries, not to mention that it’s quite easy to coordinate and match with virtually any other type of color scheme—including those that are featured in hardwood floors. White also doesn’t have to be as simple as you think; there is an entire universe of both subtle and bold tone variations! Consider options like soft ivory, alabaster, or cream and parchment if you fancy off-whites. White oak, ash, and frost white are other excellent options with cooler undertones.

2. Neutrals

Neutrals are another type of color that goes well with wood floors. Brown and gray are two colors that are known for coming in a vast variety of shades and tones, meaning that there’s certain to be a scheme out there that you’ll love when paired with your floors. Like white, neutrals can either be cool or warm-toned, so don’t hesitate to look at different samples so that you have a better idea of how each one varies. Some popular choices include beige, greige, taupe, charcoal, light walnut, and more.

3. Pastels

Dark wood floors can easily make a space look and feel a little too “heavy,” but one easy way to soften and tone them down is to use pastel colors for the walls. One of the best pastel colors to pair with dark wood floors is soft yellow; the color in general can liven up a space and add a cheerful sense of ambiance to it! Outside of that, Robin’s egg blue, powder blue, mint green, coral, and mauve are all fantastic options that are certain to make your space feel both elegant and inviting.

Of course, it’s about more than just selecting the right paint color; you must also consider furniture, rugs, accent walls, and other décor within a room when you’re hoping to complement the wood floors. That said, don’t hesitate to reach out to a trusted team of professionals with any questions or concerns—you might also be able to get some exciting suggestions!
