20 Modern Contemporary Dining Rooms with Light Wood Flooring

We would all agree that the flooring of the interior has a huge impact on the appeal of the space.

Aside from that, it could also affect the way you access the area.

With that, your choice of materials for your home’s flooring is very important.

Want some proof?

One of the most common flooring materials is wood since it looks natural and it has a thicker wear surface which can be sanded or finished many times. This is true if you use solid wood floors instead of the engineered ones.

But whatever you use, the wooden appeal it gives your space is still the same.

Well, today, we are going to show you a round-up of dining rooms that made use of light wood flooring. You will see that these dining areas look really great with this kind of flooring.

Here they are:

The flooring of this house is from a local mill. It is laminated it onto a plywood backer and it has a very subtle grey stain and the topcoat is Bona Naturale. The result is very nice especially with the brick walls on the side.

Although other flooring materials already gained popularity like concrete, wood still remains common and popular. That is why many homes still prefer to use them especially in areas with lesser traffic. But others also use it in public areas like the living room and dining room. The usage of wooden flooring adds a natural appeal to a space which is the reason why many homeowners still use it despite the wide variety of options available in the market.
