Should I keep this floor or replace it with darker hardwood because this flooring looks dirty

The difference is night and day. The current one doesn't look bad in the picture. I think that it keeps the room looking light. The dark one is beautiful but will definitely make the room darker.

What is the flooring in the adjacent areas? I think this looks fine..it's not the floor that makes you think it looks off. Maybe add a little more color to the room to make it disappear..it is all beige now. Maybe a little color on the bookcase wall.

Keep it! Looks more sophisticated than wood.

I think the room looks stunning and the floor really compliments the look of your fireplace and pillars.

Why not just clean the existing tile (travertine?) and seal it with a darker finish. There are plenty of sealers that would bring out a darker and cleaner look.

Travertine and stone are supposed to age and get a patina.....talk to the sales woman at Paris Ceramics in Chicago. They have the most gorgeous stone floors. Here is a link to their site: http://www.parisceramics.com/Products/antique_stone_DF.html
Someone in sales can tell you how to clean it properly and if you did replace it I would still do stone. Unless you keep getting leg pains....then the floor is too hard for you and I'd switch to wood.
