Wood flooring has enormous visual appeal, durability, a long lifespan, and never goes out of style. It also increases your property values.

Wood floors are classic, but tastes do change periodically. Here's what you can expect to see.

Lighter and darker colors

Some designers say light colors will change the face of interior design. This is because they coordinate with almost anything, whether the style is traditional, contemporary, beach-themed, or rustic, among others.

Light colors also tend to show off knots and grains better. Those characteristics are essential in rustic design.

Feel free to come into our hardwood flooring company, where you'll see these colors and more from brands like DuChateau and Hallmark.

Dark floors will always be in style because they're so sophisticated. They can also make a stunning design statement, especially when paired with a contrasting color.

They are, however, getting even darker, richer, and deeper this year. You can accomplish that with stains.

Textures for the finishing touch

Rustic decor is trending hot, with solid hardwood flooring and engineered wood in demand. There are three textures associated with this decor. They work well with any decor, however.

Wire-brushed exposes the heartwood and gives a subtle distressed look. Handscraped provides each plank with a distinct (and expensive!) look with a lot of color variation. Distressed makes the floors look beat up.

Patterns and unique layouts

Herringbone and chevron patterns are significant. So are random width layouts where planks of various sizes are combined.
