Which one?

I am think about getting a new kitchen floor, but was wondering which one looks cleaner longer. a dark color or a light color. I usually wash my floor atleast once a week, and spot clean it often. but I still would like some opinions.

  • I would choose earth color/tones. Not too light, not too dark. I had black and white squares in one house. Hated them right from the start. Both colors showed any dirt - right now. It was a constant battle. If the dog walked across the kitchen, it looked like you hadn't swept or mopped in a week.

  • I hate dark floors- they show everything. Dirt, dust, fuzz. i would go with lighter plus it will make your room seem larger.

  • I would go with a darker color, just because I have a white floor at the moment and it is a pain in the butt to keep it clean. You can absolutely see everything on it. Also I like darker color floors too.

  • Earth tones show the least amount of dirt. Good luck!
