39 Beautiful Living Rooms with Hardwood Floors

Mediterranean style home living room with European oak floors

This gallery features beautiful living rooms with hardwood floors. Living rooms shown include a variety of styles such as Mediterranean, rustic, craftsman, transitional, Spanish, Asian, modern, contemporary, and traditional.

Solid hardwood is gorgeous and durable. Since it is milled from a single piece of wood, it can be repeatedly sanded and last for decades. Engineered hardwood offers an inner core of wood with an outer layer of hardwood veneer. With engineered hardwood, one can get the same look and beauty without all of the cost. In addition, engineered hardwood is more resistant to heat and moisture than solid hardwood flooring.

The walls are plain white, and the ceiling has accent wooden beams in a dark wengue finish. Furniture pieces are mostly upholstered in a light cream color, combined with dark wood stain and some touch of blues on the pillows.

Dark Wood Finish Floors

There’s no doubt that dark wood floors are beautiful and give your room a modern and elegant look. They also have several advantages over the more traditional-looking light wood flooring.

Second, dark wood can offer a dramatic contrast when paired with furniture and color themes. Third, dark wood flooring can really allow you to see the grain of the wood, which offers stunning beauty and a feeling of luxury. On the downside, dark wood floors show scratches a little more readily than light wood. In addition, dirt and pet hair tend to stand out more on a dark surface.

Light Wood Floors

Light hardwood floors look amazing, especially when staged with dark furniture, and can give your space a traditional feel. Light-colored wood also has a couple of distinct advantages over dark wood floors.
