Hardwood Floors are the Hot New Statement Piece

Hardwood floors are fast becoming the most popular way home-owners are choosing to make a bold statement in their homes. The last couple of years have seen a massive spike in demand for less traditional hardwood flooring options.

However, with an increase in demand for these trendy hardwood options, there has also been an increase in price. But, this has also lead to an increase in interest in engineered hardwood flooring. This is because engineered hardwood flooring opens up increasingly popular, trendy options to those for whom they might otherwise be out of reach.

So now that we know that these trends are within reach for the average person looking for an above average floor; what are these trendy new designs everyone is going so crazy for? Let's have a look!

1. Hand Scraped or Distressed

Paradoxically, people who are looking to buck traditional hardwood flooring options are quite frequently opting for a more rustic "Old World" look. There's no better way to achieve this than with hand scraped or distressed wood. It's the perfect choice to add rustic charm to any space.

2. Dark or Gray Wood

Rustic "Old World" isn't everyone's thing, though. For people looking for a sleeker, more modern look to their home, many are opting for very dark colors. In fact, deep black is an absurdly popular choice at the moment.

For those who find a strong black color to be a bit too bold, gray flooring is a softer alternative that is equally up to the task of modernizing the look of any room.

3. Mixed Colors or Mosaics

Some people that are seeking a more quirky look, are experimenting with mixing colors and species in their floor layouts. Using alternating colors and styles of slats, you can make different shapes and patterns in the floor.

If you have the DIY chops and want your floor to make an instant impact, it might be fun to try this style out.
