Welcome to our feature gallery of kitchens with light and honey wood floors!
Kitchens are often the heart of the home. It’s where people eat, socialize, and cook; families thrive in the kitchen.
Kitchens should be cozy and inviting, but they are also a work space and cooking requires that you have plenty of light by which to prepare delicious dishes for friends and families.
One of the best ways to ensure this, especially in a small space, is to brighten up the room with light colors. But let’s face it: too much white can make a room feel stark and cold.
Alternatively, if you want dark or bold colors in your kitchen, how do you keep it from feeling too dark and enclosed without compromising your beautiful colors?
How can we solve this dilemma? We start by utilizing the opportunity that flooring provides!
Using light color wood floors will fill your kitchen with warm natural tones. These will reflect plenty of light and work to brighten up the space, small or large.
Wood floors can complement or contrast with cabinetry, or even assume the focus of the room. They can be smoothly colored or full of interesting texture and shades. Most of all, they impart a sense of timeless style in any kitchen.
Whether you’re remodeling your kitchen or simply looking to brighten things up, we have something here to influence your designs in a fantastic way.
Our hope is that you may enjoy these stunning kitchens as much as we do!
