Dark hardwood vs lighter hardwood floors

9 years ago

I'm trying to decide which type of floors we should choose for our new house. Who knew one could stress over flooring? I feel it's such a big investment, that I'd better consider ALL the pros and cons before committing to a specific shade.

Please tell me your thoughts on those two shades (whichever variation in color), comparing how they show dust, foot marks, durability, and anything else you want to mention.

And please let me know also your preference/experience with shiny vs more mate finish.
