New Trends in Flooring

Hardwood Floors have been popular in the United States for hundreds of years. Stain color, plank width, wood species and looks have changed from time to time. In the 1800 - 1900's, wood floors were many times covered up with other flooring as if they were something to be ashamed of.

Nowadays we treasure hardwood flooring. The once popular skinny planks have changed over the wider planks that were once popular even further back in our history. It is kind of like clothing styles, wait long enough and the style of wood flooring you have will become popular again. Traditional hardwood planks for wood floor installation came in 2 1/4" to 3 /12" planks, but now the trend is 5", 6" to 7", with new styles popping up as much as 12 inches wide.

Once of the most popular styles today besides the wide plank is the hand scraped plank. You can get this in solid hardwood flooring, or engineered wood flooring. It has a texture as if an old time wood working craftsman used a scraping tool to scrape the wood before it is stained. Sometimes distressed for a more antique look, this wood style comes in a range of colors to fit any decor. Much of the hand scraped plank wood floors is available in darker rich colors showcasing the grain and texture.

Color trends for the newer wide plank wood floors are trending at rich brown colors such as chocolate, dark mahogany, java, or dark walnut. Any shade of gray has become the new neutral color, from light to dark and is becoming very popular. The old fashioned look of pickling or lime-wash is now returning as another popular choice.
