I am thinking of putting in a toasted almond color but worry about that dark of a color on the floor. I have a wall of windows of one side.

The rule of thumb in a basement is to keep things "light" to compensate for the natural lack of light in basements.

I also thought putting in a darker color would limit my furniture choices also so I did have lots of doubts. It is a beautiful color but lots of concerns

Truth be told rcmuth- I put a medium dark gray carpet in my basement with no windows except for the bath. I put in Dover white walls with wine colored leather media. I also painted an accent wall dark gray with a decal. I do not find it dark at all. But I did not really doubt;) This is my decal on the dark gray wall.

I did a job in a basement (walkout) in Smokey Topaz. I wasn't sure about the client's choice but, once on and dried, it was really warm. They also did a darker carpet with leather furniture. Very pretty.
