For homeowners everywhere, hardwood floors have become an incredibly popular design choice—they simply have too many benefits to offer! They’re remarkably durable and resilient, made from natural materials, and can noticeably elevate any room and make it feel more elegant. That said, did you know that you can make them look even better by complementing them with the correct paint colors? Here are some ideas for color schemes that tend to pair well with hardwood floors!

1. Earthy Neutrals

Neutrals are a popular type of color that tends to work well with wood floors. Colors like shades of brown and gray work exceptionally well, not only for light floors but also for mid and darker wood. Consider shades like greige (the tasteful blend of gray and beige), taupe, or even something darker like charcoal. All of these can make a room feel cozier and inviting—just don’t overdo darker shades, as it might create unfavorable contrast.

2. Classic White

White is among the most versatile of all paint colors, and it’s been used indoors and outdoors for centuries on all kinds of projects—and it can easily be paired with all types of hardwood flooring! Some shades you might consider include soft ivory, alabaster, or even cream if you’re a fan of off-whites. Also, be mindful of undertones; white oak, porcelain, and frost white tend to have cooler undertones, while beige and parchment have warmer ones.

3. Soft Pastels & Light Colors

Outside of white, there are many other light colors that can help tone down the richness of dark wood floors, which is nice if you want your floor to be the focal point of your space. Soft pastels such as mellow yellow, coral, mint green, and powder blue can all be employed, all adding unique charm to the room. Since pastels come in cool and warm undertones, you’ll have several options to pick from here depending on your needs. Since most are light, they also tend to make a room feel more spacious!

It’s worth mentioning that interior design is about much more than simply selecting the right paint color to pair with your wood floors—you must also consider your furniture, rugs, and other accents within a room! But the bottom line is that this decision isn’t an impossible one by any means, and with a little careful consideration, you can greatly elevate your home.
