Do dark wood floors make a room feel smaller?
I have dark floors in my place, as well as dark walls... but i have light walls and light furniture too.
dark floors don't really make the room smaller in my opinion, but what it does do is show off dust on the floor a lot more.
if you have a dusty house, due to carpet or what ever, you may not want to go dark, as you will be vacuuming all the time.
I have dark wood stairs and am cleaning them all the time... think i'll be getting rid of a beautiful carpet that we bought for the family room, as that is the source of 1/2 the dust.
if you have a cheap rug, one that you can pull the fibers out of with a pinch... you will not want dark wood.
However, if you are mostly ceramic and wood flooring, dark wood makes most furniture pop, and it looks great.
