What are the advantages of light-colored hardwood floors?
Light wood floors create a greater sense of space within a room and can help to brighten up darker rooms. They also typically have a neutral color palette that can easily accommodate a wide variety of interior designs. Additionally, light-colored hardwood floors hide dust, dirt and debris more easily than dark floors.
What are the disadvantages of hardwood floors with a light color?
Depending how light you want your floors to be, they may require multiple coats of stain, paint and custom sealer to obscure the natural color of the wood. Depending on the other colors within the room, light hardwood floors can potentially seem to wash out a room.
Do prefinished floors come in light colors?
Prefinished floors from Carlisle come in a virtually unlimited variety of hardwood floor colors, thanks to our endless options for stain color and finish. A prefinished floor also enables you to avoid the mess and the odor that usually accompany a floor which is sanded, stained and finished after installation.
