Chocolate Floorboards




 

 





 


I love the rich dark chocolate floorboards in these Hamptons style beach houses. The velvety, dark boards are off set with lots of bright white or creamy white walls. The dark boards add strength and character to the rooms and give the spaces depth. Lately there has been a real trend with clients wanting dark floorboards so you can see how trends go trans Atlantic and filter across to all corners of the globe. I'm just glad I don't have to keep them clean!

I love the look of dark chocolate floorboards. We are going to be replacing the carpet in our living room this summer. We are not going with hardwood, though, as we have two dogs, but Pergo makes a wonderful wood laminate - we've picked a "hand sawn" style which looks and feels like real wood, but with the sustainability needed for a house with dogs.

There is certainly something beautiful and timeless about having floor boards.

W e did a dark floor , creamy cabinets and stainless in our kitchen makeover, and I do not grow tired of it, It does require more frequent vacuuming because everything shows....but still in love...

I love floorboards, especially the chocolate ones which look so great with those white walls. I don't have them in my home but we put in a dark kitchen which is almost chocolate coloured and I really love it - the contrast is fabulous with our pale walls, and makes a change from all the white ones I see ;-)
