Hardwood Flooring Trends in 2020
Sep 25, 2020
Here’s to hardwood. It’s been popular since pretty much forever, and we don’t think it’ll ever go out of style. Especially with the new trends happening right now. From the tried and true, straight-up oak floors, to some new styles that really make a room pop, get ready to fall in love with hardwood all over again.
1. High-Variation Hardwood
High-variation hardwood is perfect if you’re going for a natural look because no two pieces are alike. As it says in the name, high-variation hardwood varies in color, so each strip of wood has a wide range of shades and hues. The possibilities are endless with high-variation hardwood. So, get the look you want and start enjoying high-variation hardwood.
2. Wide-Plank Hardwood
Though it’s been in style for a few years now, wide-plank hardwood is a 2020 trend that we believe is here to stay. Not only do they make any room look larger, wide planks come in a variety of colors and styles to truly fit within any home. If you’re in the market for a contemporary feel with a rustic, authentic look, wide-plank hardwood is definitely for you.
3. White Oak
If you’re looking for a crisp look that stays looking great, white oak is an ideal hardwood style. In addition to being affordable, it’s one of the hardest hardwoods out there while offering a sleek modern aesthetic to any room. The beautiful wavy grain patterns of white oak allow these floors to stand out, even underneath your most unique furniture.
Who doesn’t love a good maple hardwood? Well, this year, it’s clear that maple is doing something right, because it seems as though everyone has it. The fine grain made up of both curly patterns and uniformly straight lines gives maple a sophisticated, distinctive look. Maple is a durable option (in both hardness and style) that will keep you loving it for years to come.
5. Herringbone Pattern
Originally used for entryways, the herringbone hardwood pattern has now spread to the entire house. This traditional look utilizes a variety of wood species and can bring a pop of personality to any room. Most commonly found in light finishes, herringbone patterns are taking over living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, and even kitchens to elevate the style in any space.
