Flooring is definitely a key piece of any homes overall design direction. New flooring can be the icing on the cake on a full remodel, or a magnificent way to add new pop to more finished space. We've compiled a short list of some of the trends in flooring, including weathered or reclaimed woods, dark hardwoods and the many faces of bamboo.
Weathered or reclaimed woods claim a top spot on this list not only because of their fantastic looks, but the movement toward up-cycling and choosing local products. Often these finishes come in grays or whitewashes, and are perfect for that light, airy look or as a tribute to the seaside. These work marvelously with white or black trim, and a huge variety of muted colors, but especially blues and greens.
Rich, dark hardwoods like stained maple, espresso-toned walnut or even ebony serve a wide variety of rooms well. Go with a smooth finish, or the hand-scraped look and pair with rich tones of red or orange for a warm, cozy space. We love how these dark finishes can fit the needs of the modern or, in contrast, a heritage look with their mellow, rich presence.
No longer only served in the pale hues with narrow bands and the distinctive ridges, this renewably sourced flooring option has come a long way. HGTV points out that with a whole platter of new choices in colors and styles, bamboo flooring is a durable choice that will flex to fit your style in ways that have never before been available.
Not at the top of the list, but no less notable are large format tile, poured concrete, blonde hardwoods, parquet and cut-and-loop carpets. The fun is really in the sheer number of thoughtful options and deciding which ones fit your own personal lifestyle and flair.
