Wood Flooring Trends to Watch

January 30, 2018 1:12 am

When it comes to trends in flooring for the year ahead, what’s old will be new as vintage and retro looks take center stage in the hardwood flooring arena, according to SMART Carpet and Flooring. Here are their top five hardwood trends to watch:

Wide plank hardwood floors. Featuring planks that are five or even seven inches wide, this look works well with both modern and rustic decor. Added perk? Wide planks make any space look larger.

Gray wood floors. While this is not a brand new look, its execution will be a bit different this year. While 2017 saw a trend toward warmer grays and "greige" (a combination of gray and beige), 2018 will usher in cooler tones.

Distressed wood floors. Whether eco-friendly reclaimed wood or budget-friendly, wood-look vinyl plank, distressed wood is one of the hottest new flooring trends. Incorporate distressed wood flooring - particularly the cooler gray tones mentioned above - to instantly put your home in style this year.

Varied-width wood plank floors. A trend that began gaining interest at the end of 2017, it’s expected to pick up steam in the year ahead. Reminiscent of historic homes, mixed-width wood flooring, which allows you to choose any combination of widths for a given room, creates a one-of-a-kind look driven by your personal aesthetic.

Parquet floors. The vintage, mid-century chevron flooring look is back in style, however, it now incorporates contemporary trends, such as cool gray flooring, distressed wood, or even wide planks for a modern take on parquet.
