The flooring market continues to evolve over time. We continually watch as old trends fade away, and new ones emerge. Hardwood flooring has been one of the most prestigious options available for years! That natural wood grain being brought into your home is a style that homeowners continue to craze about all the time. That is why we wanted to focus on our trend predictions for the upcoming year. Let’s take a look!
Muted Natural Tones
Natural-toned woods are what make hardwood floors so beautiful. Plus, we have seen them evolve over the year. Natural and authentic tones always create a statement; however, muting these tones allows other wood features in the room to pop even more!
When it comes to choosing a type of hardwood, it comes down to two options: solid or engineered. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. We continue to see love going toward solid hardwood flooring with the opportunity to sand and refinish over time.
High Color and Pattern Variation
Where we typically see one type of hardwood per room; however, we now see manufacturers give the option of mixing and matching high-variety plank flooring. It is no longer unusual to see several high-variety color planks in one room to create a pop in the design.
Hardwoods offer a large variety of earthy, authentic raw tones. Yet whitewashed hardwoods can allow your wood to feel worn and more authentically used. This feature is a great way of mixing a rustic and modern look together in perfect harmony.
Plank size is being explored more and more. We notice in 2020, homeowners and businesses prefer to select wider planks. This look can make a room feel larger and more luxurious. In fact, wider planks are an excellent option for amplifying the grand feel of a large room.
On the opposite end of muted tones in hardwood, we see others prefer high-gloss finishes. The shiny glistening look can make quite the statement. Just be cognitive that this shiny coat can scratch and may need to be refinished but can truly look stunning!
Hardwood is a timeless flooring option, yet trends can keep your design current. What kind of hardwood trends do you like? Let us know below in the comment section!
