Whether building or renovating, nothing surpasses hardwood flooring. Its beauty and durability make it an excellent investment that will even increase the value of your home.
So, what’s trending in the world of wood floors?
Because customers of Denver’s Choice Hardwood Floors rely on us to guide them through the process of choosing wood flooring options, we keep a close eye on what’s going on in the industry.
Today, let’s talk about trends for wood floors. Even though some fads come and go, we see these styles having a much longer life, giving you even more years of blissful enjoyment.
1. Reclaimed Wood
While being environmentally-friendly has become more of a requirement rather than a trend, achieving that status has varied over the years. At first, bamboo and cork floors were in high-demand. Now, it’s all about using reclaimed wood. An added benefit is that wood from older buildings is often comprised of heartwood, the deepest layer of a tree with more strength, added character and richer color.
2. Wide Plank Wood Floors
We’ve also seen homeowners look for the clean and simple look of wide plank wood floors. People just love the elegant yet warm feel of wider planks. Even in smaller rooms, wide (and long) planks create the illusion that it’s a larger area. This is an easy way to make cozy spaces feel a bit more modern and grand.
3. Light and Bright
While rich, dark hardwoods will always endure, the current trends for wood floors include a grey color palette, and even light blond wood is seeing a comeback. While darker hardwoods tend to show dust, lighter floors are much more forgiving. Whether you go with a neutral grey or beachy blond, you’ll also help your space feel brighter and more open.
