Hardwood floors with naturally dark colors
When considering dark hardwood floor colors, your first choice is the type of wood with which your wide plank floor will be fashioned. At Carlisle, we offer a variety of woods that lend themselves well to dark wood color floors. Walnut floors, for example have naturally dark and rich mocha hues with undertones that range from purple to yellow. Cherry floors also offer dark natural colors, with deep red tones that can be polished to a dark glowing auburn. When sealed with a natural finish, both Walnut and Cherry offer a timeless hardwood floor color.
There are several woods that can be easily stained to dark hardwood floor colors. Ash is a hardwood with clean and neutral tones and a lack of tannins that allow it to absorb stain easily. White Oak features nutty brown hues that are the perfect backdrop for almost any stain color. And Hickory comes in rich cocoa brown and beige hues and is an excellent alternative to Walnut.
If you decide to stain your floors, Carlisle offers a virtually unlimited assortment of stain colors. Our Carlisle Custom Color matching system makes it easy to match a stain color to virtually any item you send into us: a paint swatch, a piece of fabric, a section of tile or a bit of linen, for example. Carlisle, you’ll never have to settle for a color that is “just about right.”
