What Is The Best Color For Laminate Flooring?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: September, 2021 - Modified: August, 2023

There are many laminate flooring colors available, from light and dark gray to numerous wood grain stains, basic white, and black, to name a few.

It’s hard to say that one color is the best when it comes to laminate, as it really depends on what your personal preferences are. You may choose a certain color to match existing cabinets or furniture, or you might decide on a color based on its ability to hide dirt, stains, and scratches. Alternatively, you may simply prefer laminate flooring colors that match the paint on a wall or decor in a room.

As a general rule white and black floors will be the most difficult to keep looking clean as they have a greater tendency to show dirt, dust, footprints, etc. However, a white floor will brighten a room like no other and a black floor will accent the other items in the room without serving as a distraction.

Wood grain flooring options will disguise dirt, debris, and scratches, and create a very natural, calming feel to a room. The downside of wood-look laminate is that you’ll need to be aware of other wood/wood grain objects in the room as not all wood colors blend well with other woods.

Stone-colored laminate offers a wonderful natural look that is great at hiding dirt, scratches, etc. But it doesn’t always give a warm, cozy feel to a space.
