Not sure what color to paint or pick out for your floors? Consider the darkest of black hues. Always chic and sophisticated, black floors — particularly when partnered with white walls — create an amazing contrasting canvas for you to paint your style on. These seven rooms prove it.

A dining room with a modern rustic vibe above features a black floor, white walls, black and white dining room furniture and an explosion of colors that doesn't seem too overwhelming thanks to the streamlined architectural color palette. Spotted on Hus & Hem via Desire to Inspire.

In the same home as above, a similarly colorful scheme helps make a lot of bold accessories feel exciting without feeling too busy. Choosing a dark sectional with the dark flooring helps the room feel spacious. Seen on Hus & Hem via Desire to Inspire.

Tall bright white ceilings are grounded with a black floor in this home spotted on Sfgirlbybay; this wall and floor color combo also makes colorful and modern art pop.

When you think bedroom, you don't often think "black," but if you want both relaxation and drama, wrapping the rest of the room in white (what you can see when you are in your bed) creates a peaceful feel while the black floors help underscore and contrast the rest of the room's design.
