Hardwood flooring from Cherokee Floor Covering in Woodstock, GA

What colors are available with hardwood flooring?

If you opt for natural wood flooring, you have a color selection that ranges from light to dark. Add paints and stains to the 'mix' and color possibilities are endless. You can also add texture to the boards for additional visual appeal. Wirebrushed, distressed, and hand-scraped textures are popular. Family-owned Cherokee Floor Covering offers a large variety of all types of hardwood flooring in Woodstock, Georgia. We have been part of the flooring industry for over 30 years.

Light colors

Red oak, white oak, and maple are popular light-colored wood species. Apply a finish with a matte to satin sheen to get a natural look and a surface that does not show scratches and scuffs. A whitewashed or blonde finish are additional options if you want floorboards that are light in color. A blonde finish is the more practical of the two since this finish hides dust and dirt.

Dark colors

Black walnut, cherry, and mahogany are favored dark-colored wood species. Designers like to pair very dark floors with white walls. Lay the boards in an interesting pattern, and the floor is sure to become a focal point in the room. Or you may want to consider wide planks in offbeat colors like deep purple or navy blue or opt for weathered boards for a monochrome decor.


Very light and very dark hardwoods are in vogue, and stains support this trend. Many homeowners like Country White or True Black. Stains can be custom blended if you can’t find the hue that is right for your home. Keep in mind that the color of any particular stain varies on different wood species. Bright painted floors, especially appealing in a kitchen, are also popular.
