For centuries, hardwood floors have been a failsafe choice for any and every esthetic. But not all hardwood flooring is created equal, and selecting the right style that will endure can be a challenge. To help guide your selection, we've compiled the top trends we're seeing for 2020.
White Oak is a Natural Choice for Hardwood Floors
Among top designers and homeowners alike, the favorite wood species trend this year is white oak. In addition to its durability and affordability, white oak adds the perfect balance of organic texture and modern warmth to any space.
Try Wider Planks for a More Distinctive Look
An increasingly popular choice, the wide plank hardwood trend adds a sense of uniqueness and vibrancy to any room. Wide planks can also make a room look larger. In modern homes, they can lend a contemporary feel and for older homes they can complete a rustic, authentic look.
Light Brown is the Trending Hardwood Flooring Color
As a recent hardwood flooring trend, some designers have been shifting away from cool gray finishes and moving towards cooler, light brown wood floors. This sophisticated, European look can balance out dark paint colors in a room or serve as a good foundation for lighter, brighter furnishings.
