What Paint Color Goes Well With Light Wood Floors?

Hardwood floors are an asset to any house. They're strong, easy to maintain and give your rooms a bright shine. Light hardwood floors can drastically lighten a room as well as combine gracefully with a range of paint colours.

Matching Colors

Select paint colours that match or mimic the lightness of the wood. You can do this exactly by using a paint colour that is the exact same shade of beige or honey as your floors or select light colours that are more evocative of the floor, such as butter yellow or ginger.

Pastel Shades

Pastel shades harmonise nicely with light wood flooring. Pastel shades mimic the lightness of the floor, yet add a splash of colour. Appropriate shades are light mauve, mint green, sky blue, lavender and other similar hues.

Dramatic Shades

Dark, dramatic colours allow you to use your light wood flooring in an unforgettable manner. Pair it with black paint, deep burgundy or navy colours for a striking look.
