Dark Hardwood Floors

There’s no question about it. Today, flooring choices are as vast as their coordinating paint colors.

But, in flooring, as in art, sometimes it’s best to stick with an original!

In any room, in any home, in any decade, dark hardwood floors just work.

Combined with elegant white marble and shiny stainless, dark hardwoods add depth and dimension.

Dark hardwoods and furniture combined with white upholstery and walls are a timeless combination that looks great for years but never gets old.
Floors that are going to last need a fabulous finish. Hard wax oil from Buzz wood protects floors from all those inevitable high heel marks — and tricycle tracks!


Mixing neutrals is, to us, one of the chicest ways to create a look with staying power. Dark hardwoods are the perfect foundation.

Barrel ceilings add tons of interest to a hallway. We love the cohesive feel of the floors and ceiling.
Wide, ancient planks are some of our favorite dark hardwoods. They add an instant charm to a home and don’t need any covering at all!

Natural fiber rugs are undoubtedly our favorites. While they tend to blend with lighter hardwoods, the contrast between a dark hardwood and lighter sisal or seagrass is so elegant.

One of the best things about dark hardwoods is that they look great with color. This green infuses the space with life and energy while the floors keep it grounded. Green is a perfect office pick because it helps with concentration!
