With so many varieties of hardwood flooring available on the market, sifting through your options can be a daunting task. Let’s face it, you’re going to be spending a lot of time on your floors, so you don’t want to hit a wall when it comes time to select the hardwood flooring that fits your home best. Some people are concerned about sustainability. Others will have difficulty choosing between wood grain colors that seem to look more and more similar with every glance. Don’t even get me started on the visibility of dust. It all comes down to this – when you’re choosing hardwood flooring, you want to be floored.


7 Hardwood Flooring Trends For Your Home

1. Bamboo Flooring Urges Us to “Go Green”

I feel for the environmentalists looking to install hardwood floors in their homes. Not only do trees need to be cut down to collect the wood to make hardwood flooring, insult is added to injury when you step all over the trees on a daily basis. Bamboo flooring is a beautiful alternative with a much smaller ecological footprint. Bamboo is very sustainable compared to other hardwood flooring materials, and is popularized as the option for those looking to “go green.”

2. American Hardwood: Sustainable and Ethically Regulated

Purchasing American hardwood flooring is not only fashionable and timeless; it supports the American economy and sheds light on the source of the wood, ensuring a more ethically attained product in most cases. Since exotic woods are expensive and oftentimes shrouded in mystery as to how and where they were attained, investing in American hardwood is a win-win.

3. Matte Finishes – No Scuffing and Less Buffing

Bedroom. Master bedroom with hardwood floors. Bedroom with Solid French Wire Brushed White Oak

Hardwood flooring with matte finishes are becoming more and more popular every year. Old school, glossy wood flooring is harder to maintain and more vulnerable to surface damage. Matte finishes remove the glare of bright lights found on traditional hardwood flooring, and feel great on the feet. There’s something inviting about a subtle matte finish that doesn’t completely obscure the details of the wood grain. Families with active children may want to opt for a matte finish. During the winter months, when the kids are stuck inside and causing chaos, the floor won’t show it.

4. Wider Planks – The Illusion of Space

Wide hardwood planks play tricks on the eye. Since they look wider, they appear to widen the area where they are installed. It doesn’t take much to get the effect to work. Widening by only part of an inch will stretch a room significantly. If you ever feel claustrophobic in your home, installing wide hardwood flooring will aid you finding room to breathe.

5. Solid Hardwood – More Durable than Engineered Hardwood

Known to last 100 or more years due to the thick durable quality of the wood and the ability to address flooring concerns on existing flooring, solid hardwood is the flooring solution of those looking to settle down with their flooring for a long time. Solid hardwood is perfect for housing that has been passed down through the generations. It can be refinished and even have its color altered to suit your current style. Areas of the house with excessive foot traffic also benefit from solid hardwood floors. It’s also a favorite in colder parts of the country like New York.

6. Cork – It Could Work

Cork makes for very comfortable flooring. It is noticeably softer than hardwood and still looks aesthetically pleasing. If sound quality is important in your home, cork flooring is the perfect surface to capture maximum acoustic resonance and clarity of tone. Classically, the main drawback to cork was the lack of durability and variety versus hardwood options, but recent innovations in cork flooring have made it a much more viable option than in the past.

7. Gray Tones – There’s at Least 50 Shades of Gray Flooring Available

{Paint Color: “Benjamin Moore Stonington Gray HC-170”}

Gray hardwood flooring may seem unusual or unnatural at first glance, but the opposite is actually true. Gray wood tones are common in natural trees. Before the polish and finish, many woods have a much grayer tone. In modern households, gray flooring matches with black and white color schemes commonly decorating homes. Flooring guides online offer helpful advice on ways to utilize gray tones to capitalize on a beautiful home. Experimenting with different floors can be costly and time-consuming, but finding the perfect one is well worth the effort.
