Hardwoods have always been a popular flooring choice due to its natural beauty and durability. The versatile nature of wood flooring compliments a home designer’s artistic touch by providing an elegant and sophisticated look that never goes out of style.
Today, many homeowners are pulling up the carpet in their homes to install brand new hardwoods. They know how quality wood flooring will help the value of their home, and provide a beautiful and elegant living space. We have provided 3 popular wood flooring trends that are sure to please any homeowner!
3 Choices for Beautiful Wood Floors
- Wide Planks – a wide plank creates a “clean,” unique, modern look that gives the illusion of more space! Wider planks evoke the feeling of quality and durability that can become lost with “strip flooring.” Boasting fewer seams than strip flooring, wide planks deliver a bold design statement.
- Dark Tones – think DARK! Espresso and ebony are popular colors. Decorating with light colored furnishings gives a strong contrast that sets the room off beautifully. Although maintaining clean floors and avoiding scratches can be difficult, a dark floor can hide natural imperfections in the wood.
- Reclaimed Wood – a fantastic, eco-friendly selection. Often expensive due to its rarity, reclaimed wood has a stressed, natural, imperfect look that gives a floor character. If you can’t find old logs or beams to recycle and put in your home, machine stressed wood is available. Although you lose the benefit of recycling, machine stressed wood can be very durable and less expensive.
