The Ultimate Wood Flooring Trends for 2021

There is definitely one thing we all have in common when it comes to the pandemic – and it’s that we’ve all been spending MUCH more time at home. With that, means more time to notice the updates we want to make to our homes in order to increase the comfort and value in them. Right now, we’re seeing a lot of new flooring installation requests and questions – which only makes sense. Afterall, flooring is the single most used thing in a home, as it gets used every day you’re in it. 

When it comes to new flooring, there are endless options – from types of flooring like hardwood, carpet, tile and vinyl flooring. And we won’t begin to get started on the vast amount of choices once you go from there. 

So, if you’re in the market for new wood flooring and feeling overwhelmed by the selections: don’t be. We are here to help you every step of the way, and have plenty of beautiful products for you to choose from. Let’s first begin by having a look at the ultimate flooring trends for 2021.

Vinyl Planks

One of the most popular options for 2021 is luxury vinyl plank flooring. Busy families with small children love how easy it is to maintain, and those on a budget cherish the lower cost. We offer patterns that look exactly like natural stone or wood. These vinyl planks are so intricate in detail, that they truly can pass as the real deal. 

Hardwood Floors

Although hardwood floors are more expensive, their timeless beauty is always in style. They also increase your home’s value. The three most popular kinds of wood for this year are:

  • Cherry
  • Maple
  • Oak

Engineered Hardwood

Engineered hardwood remains a solid option for homeowners due to its durability and lower cost than solid wood flooring. This choice works especially well in kitchens.

American Made

A top trend for 2021 is purchasing products made in America grown from local trees. We feature hardwood floors by HomerWood that are manufactured by Amish craftsmen in Pennsylvania. 

Cool and Warm Colors

Cool tones are rising in popularity, with gray being the new design star. It is available in light or dark tones. For a rustic look, go for a whitewash finish. Warm tones of honey, blonde or copper are perennial favorites that give a cozy ambiance to any home.

Lighter colors are the best choice for small spaces and tend to hide scratches and dust. Darker colors give a luxurious and dramatic look to larger rooms.

Distressed Textures

Perfection is out in 2021. This year designers continue with the look of worn wood achieved by wire brushing, hand scraping and distressing the planks.

Various Layouts

Wide planks remain a solid option this year and work especially well in large rooms. They are especially popular with farmhouse décor for their simple, authentic and natural style. If you don’t prefer the look of uniformly cut planks, you will find several different layout patterns to suit your own personal style. Try multiple width planks, diagonals, a border or a chevron layout.
