Some good colors for wood floors include natural, brown tones for a classic, rustic look or dark and black tones for a modern look. Natural brown colors include chestnut or walnut that are not stained. Stained, darker or black tones work well in chic, modern spaces, such as urban condominiums and artists' lofts, states Coswick.com.
For a room where there is a lot of flooring space without much furniture, such as an office waiting room or a public space, bold colors work well. Some bold colors include stained mahogany, oak and ash. For rooms with low ceilings, a light color of wood is good for the floor. Also, rooms with dark walls look good with light colors of wood flooring, notes Coswick.com.
