Top 5 Hardwood Floor Trends for 2019
Another year is upon us and with it comes new ideas for interior design. If you are someone who feels your house needs to feature the latest when it comes to room décor, you will want to be up on the current hardwood floor trends for 2019. So, without further ado, here’s what’s hot for the new year.
When it comes to hardwood flooring in 2019, it’s all about color. Traditional browns will always be classic, but we are starting to get more adventurous in our choices. Expect to see lots of whites, grays, blondes and honeys.
Of all of these, blonde flooring is standing out in a big way. Taking over for last year’s gray explosion, this light, airy flooring works with just about any décor and instantly makes a room look bigger.
But don’t worry; grays are still in as well so don’t feel like you have to rip out your flooring if you went gray last year. It’s still very much on target.
Variations will be another great trend with hardwoods that show a variety of tones from darks to lights
ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPOSIBLE FLOORING:
The environmental movement will never go out of style. 2019 homeowners may feel confident that their flooring looks great, but they will also want to know where it comes from. Natural, renewable, recyclable and home-grown materials are a preference.
Smooth flooring will always be a classic, but textures like hand-scraped, wire-brushed and fully distressed floors are becoming increasingly popular.
Is it because they make the perfect complement for industrial, shabby chic and alternative looks? Or is it because they are great for hiding damage, dirt and dents? Whatever the reason may be, go for these perfectly imperfect looks to keep up with this year’s latest in home décor.
LAYOUTS AND PATTERNS:
This year, it’s all about creating interest in your interior design, and that starts with your flooring. Play around with fun patterns and unconventional widths.
Herringbone and chevron patterns, diagonals, wide planks and mixed width pieces will all make for the perfect base for a stand out decorating option.
TYPES OF WOOD:
2018 has seen a lot of evolution in the types of wood flooring available for home décor and, as a result, 2019 has more options for homeowners than ever. Although having a wide variety to choose from is great, it can be overwhelming when it comes to finding the one that is best for your home.
And while we can’t tell you what is right for you, we can certainly make some great recommendations. Brazilian Cherry, mahogany, oak, maple and Douglas fir are all popular choices when it comes to a new look for your home that will stand up to the test of time.
2019 is an exciting year for home décor. If you’re thinking of new flooring, try branching out with innovative colors, textures, patterns, designs and different types of wood. Then look forward to enjoying the updates you’ve made to your home for years to come.
