Comparing Light and Dark Woods in Interior Home Designs

The shade of wood you choose for your home can make a huge difference in the ambience and décor of your home. In most cases, a blend of wood tones looks best. For example, if you have wood beams in a medium shade, wood cabinetry and flooring with a lighter tone will provide an attractive contrast. Lighter wood does a great job of bringing light into the room, so it looks especially nice if you have large windows. Pairing lighter wood with dark countertops, dark furniture, or bright colors is another way to create a pleasant color combination. If you have white wood in your home, stained wood will provide excellent balance.
