Hardwood Flooring Trends for 2017

Home / Decorating Tips for Guelph homeowners / Hardwood Flooring Trends for 2017

With the New Year comes a chance to refresh and renovate your home, and with all of the latest trends in hardwood flooring, you’re bound to find a style that suits you! Here are some of our favourite trends for hardwood flooring for the coming year.

Cooler Tones Are In

Some of the biggest trends in hardwood flooring for 2017 are in colour and stain. We’re seeing more and more people choosing darker stains for their floors, and we’re expecting to see this trend grow even more over the coming months. On the other end of the spectrum, many people are choosing lighter floors in cooler tones, like grays, blondes and whites. Generally, we’re seeing a trend away from warmer browns. Cooler tones are great because they open up your decorating possibilities.

Shiny Finishes Are Out

The biggest trend for hardwood finishing is a move toward satine, matte or oiled floors – and a move away from shiny finishes. Shiny finishes are less practical because they show scratches and dirt, and homeowners are starting to see the practical benefits of a matte finish. This trend is also pairing up well with the move toward grays and white washes.

Wider Planks & Different Widths

While wide plank wood flooring isn’t necessarily a new trend this year, it is continuing to hold on. Homeowners are preferring to stick with hardwood planks at least three and a quarter inches wide, or even bigger. Wider planks make a huge visual difference in a home, and people are starting to take notice. Along with this is coming the trend for varying widths of planks in one floor. This trend offers an antique, authentic finish for people who prefer a more natural look to their floors.
