Hardwood floors are an investment that add value to your home, provide timeless style, and last for decades. Though most hardwood looks are classic, there are always trends that come into style. Here are some modern trends from the experts at Floor Coverings International Triad to keep in mind as you look for your next hardwood flooring product.
Cooler shades of wood, both light and dark, are heavily sought for a more rustic home environment. Gray undertones can help dark shades feel lighter and easier to implement throughout the house, while gray undertones in light shades provide depth, making light hardwood floors look more luxurious and unique.
Modern Whitewashed Oak
Though whitewashed hardwood floors have been a trend in the past, a modernized version of this trend has become popular. Compared to old styles, this current take on whitewashing is to subtly use it as a means of making oak a few shades lighter. This method yields a natural color and adds definition in the form of soft streaks.
Wider plank sizes have become popular is recent years because they make a room feel bigger. This trend prevents a floor from looking too busy while combining perfectly with cool tones to create a popular farmhouse style floor.
Natural hardwood floors in matte or soft satin finishes are as trendy with customers as they are convenient. Homeowners are choosing natural finishes over glossy ones due to how glossy finishes show marks and require more upkeep. The glossiness also becomes the focal point of a room, whereas matte and satin finishes create a natural backdrop for your furniture. Natural finishes help to create a relaxed room environment.
