Now, I had this idea in my head that dark floors make rooms appear smaller, but after doing some research online, I realized that isn't exactly the case. Dark floors don't in and of themselves make rooms feel smaller. Dark floors with dark paint and furnishings make rooms feel smaller. My walls are light and my upholstery is white and cream. My furniture is dark, but I think there are enough light colors here to possibly use this beautiful chocolaty wood.
Thoughts? I don't think there is anything in my condo complex that comes close to this look. The floors in the units here have traditional sized planks and colors ranging from blond to honey.
