Floor Dilemma

So we are still painting our front room! Possibly the longest decorating project in history! But is so hard when you are working full time, running a business and busy with hen weekend's, birthdays etc!
We haven't even discussed what we'll do with the floorboards yet, they are looking a bit of a mess at the moment with dust and paint splatters....
 

A few possible ideas....

 stripped back and natural OR white, light, bright OR stained darker to contrast the white?

What do you reckon?
