Help picking hardwood floor color!

rhodesbrApril 28, 2012


My wife and I love this forum and are about to finalize the flooring for our home. We're having a heck of a time agreeing on a color of engineered hardwood flooring and would love some brands/color ideas. We'd like something pretty hard (dogs and kids) and want a nice contrast to the cabinets in the kitchen. We're also looking at handscraped/distressed since those tend to not show wear and tear as much. Any help is appreciated!!

My advice is to not get anything too dark because the dog hair and dust shows up more! I kept my floors very clean but still when the sun shone on the dark walnut wood I could see dust, cat hairs etc.
