Three trends in hardwood flooring

Three trends in hardwood flooring

Wood flooring is timeless. It never goes out of style and adds warmth and charm to a room.

Here are three significant trends you'll see right now. Since all things hardwood is classic, you can guarantee they'll be around for years.

Engineered wood flooring

Did you know there are two kinds of hardwood? We're all familiar with solid and, although engineered looks similar, construction is different.

Engineered’s top layer is genuine wood, such as oak, hickory, walnut, etc. Next, you'll have the natural beauty with knots, grains, swirls, and undertones–everything we expect from a wood floor.

Visit us and see for yourself! Our hardwood flooring company carries engineered wood. You see products like Aspen Oak by TecWood or Smokehouse Maple by Mannington.

Underneath, however, are three or more layers of wood combined with a bit of resin and placed in a crosswise position. The result is a wood floor that's more stable and better able to handle water.

Engineered wood is taking the industry by storm. It appeals to those who want both beauty and practicality.

Wide planks

Wide planks show the knots, grains, and other features well. They also give your home a warm, rustic feeling and the atmosphere of a historical home, whether you choose engineered or solid hardwood flooring.

Please note they work just as well in contemporary or another decor. In addition, they will coordinate well with other furnishings and accessories.

Patterns and unusual layouts

Flooring today is all about creativity. Herringbone, the original parquet pattern circa the 1970s, is back again in a big way. Herringbone and chevron patterns can be embedded on the surface of the plank.

One layout of particular note is also the random width where planks of all sizes are combined. They create distinctive arrangements that can make a room look larger.
