Normally in a large surface darker color may bring the walls closer but for small surface will make the place looks busy.

These colors are the most popular colors for flooring which is coming to the fact that brown shades are more easier coming along with decorations. Neutral lighter brown or golden brown do not shrink the place. On the other hand, darker brown come with depth and elegance to your place.
