How to Make a Room Look Bigger with Hardwood Floors

You might not realize it, but Superior Windowland does a lot more than just windows! In fact, one of our specialties is hardwood floors. We have a relationship with many fine flooring products, allowing us to put together the perfect solution for your flooring needs. For example, did you know that you can make a room look bigger with hardwood floors? Here’s how:

Run the planks in the right direction

In order to make a room look bigger, you need to run the planks in the direction of the longest span of the room. This will help elongate the room! If you have a square room, however, consider installing your hardwood floors parallel to the door or entry.

Choose the right color

Generally speaking, light features make a room look bigger. So when looking at hardwood floors, look for ones that have a more natural color.

Another option is to stay light on the walls and select a darker hardwood floor. The flooring will provide a nice contrast to the light walls (and other light objects, like furniture and d├ęcor).

Select wider flooring pieces

Although it might seem counterintuitive, wide flooring pieces can help make a room look larger. Smaller planks will make the floor look busy, thereby making the entire room look a bit cramped.
