Decorating & Furniture/Too much wood?

Advertisement


Question
I have a lot of wood furniture, bookcases, entertainment center, breakfast nook and table, all in a relatively small space.  I am tired of having the carpet cleaned, and with children and dogs....well....

I want to go with a wood floor, would this be too much wood in one room?  If not...what color of wood would compliment the oak furniture?

Thanks

Answer
Alanna,

Thanks for writing.

It will be a lot of wood, but if you use area rugs and get a hardwood in a light blond tone where you can see through to the variations of wood grains (again, this can only be found in true hardwood), you should be fine.

Good Luck,

Ben
