Four hardwood flooring trends



The wood flooring you choose today will still be on-trend in the future. Most flooring trends are updated, well-researched updates on time-honored designs.

Hardwood flooring has a classic appeal and natural beauty and adds warmth and charm to any space. This is what to expect to see this year.

Rustic textures


Textures add personality to wood floors! This year is all about warm and cozy.

People gravitate toward the more rustic looks, which also work well in any decor. They include wire-brushed, hand-scraped, and distressed. You will find all these and more at our hardwood flooring company.

Unique patterns and arrangements:


Remember the parquet floors of the 1970s? Herringbone was one of the originals, and this classic pattern has come back in a big way!

Herringbone resembles the bone structure of the herring. Other unique wood flooring patterns are chevrons and mixed width., which use planks of different sizes to create special arrangements.

Updated colors:


Medium and dark shades are getting deeper, richer, and darker. This gives the wood floor drama and boldness.

Light colors, such as blond and even whitewashed, coordinate with everything. Designers love them because they'll work in any decor, from traditional to modern.

Engineered wood flooring


This appeals to those who want both beauty and practicality. This version, on the surface, looks similar to solid hardwood flooring.

Construction is different, however. It is layered, giving the floor more stability and a better ability to handle water.
