Color choices will greatly differ from person to person. Some people like to make a statement choosing bold and daring colors and others like to keep it classy with softer hues. Overall, a common trend with homeowners is to use natural earth-tone hues. Business owners, on the other hand, typically go for the bolder options like using a black mottled stain on the concrete floors to give a interesting and dramatic effect. One thing to consider before choosing a color for your home is to think about the future. Do you see yourself selling your home later on? If so, playing it safe with a more neutral color might be a good idea to help the resale value and potential to sell. You don’t want to turn potential buyers away because you choose to dye your floors red to match your favorite football team.
