Keep It Natural. Keep It Neutral.
Bold colors and geometric shapes have been all the rage in home decor over the past few years. Those with more conservative taste will be happy to know that natural and neutral shades are extremely popular in hardwood flooring right now.
Neutral tones create a mellow canvas, allowing bolder items of decor such as statement art pieces or colorful furniture to truly pop.
The “Lived In” Look
If a rustic or vintage look is your thing, there’s good news: hardwood flooring with the “lived in” or repurposed look is right on trend! Intentional distressed looks such as hammered dents, burn or band and circular saw marks can give flooring a humble charm, making for a more relaxed look.
Some of us could come close to madness keeping a hardwood floor pristine – but with distressed hardwood flooring, the beauty of wear and tear will only add to the charm and casualness of its natural warmth!
Go BIG With Contemporary
For those seeking a contemporary look, long and wide planks are the way to go. They offer the clean line and smooth look contemporary decorating craves. The soft natural look of the wood compliments a casual atmosphere, creating open spaces and goes very well with neutral colors.
This look is great for smaller living spaces such as condos and apartments as the long and wide wood pieces offer a spacious and airy feel to a room.
Shades of Gray
The cooling tones and hues of gray woods are (pun very much intended) particularly hot right now. They add a cool, neutral and unique tone that draws the eye pleasingly, yet allows them to fit in with any color scheme or mode of decor. What’s more, many choices come across as distressed making for a more relaxed and casual feel.
The beauty of hardwood isn’t just in its range of colors and hues but its range of wonderful textures. Textures come in many forms and can not only enrich the look of the wood, but add contrast to a room; from simple and smooth, open grain and hand scraped, to wire brushed. Wire brushed in particular, is extremely popular right now and gives the distressed and ‘lived in’ look we previously mentioned and compliments any decor style.
