Cleveland South HardwoodHardwood floors continue to be a favorite choice for homeowners. Whether they are searching for the right flooring type for a new home or gearing up to remodel an existing one, hardwood flooring offers beauty, durability, and easy maintenance for a look whose popularity continues to grow over the years. The experts at Floor Coverings International Cleveland South share what to expect when it comes to hardwood flooring trends in 2017.

Contrasts in Colors

2017 is shaping up to be the year of color extremes when it comes to hardwood flooring. Exceptionally dark woods, such as espresso, and super light colors like blonde are leading the trends of this year.

Gray Tops the Must Have List

While color contrasts were highlighted above, gray flooring still continues to lead the latest trends. Available in shades ranging from smoky gray to dark gray, it provides a perfectly neutral — yet vibrant — palette from which to base all your decorative dreams.

Textures Add Visual Appeal

Smooth flooring options are still popular with many homeowners but the trend for 2017 is all about textures. With a focus on natural and rustic looks, some of the textural options available include wire brushed, hand scraped, and distressed.

Glossy Finishes Are Out

Shiny hardwood flooring is giving way to more understated looks for 2017. While glossy finishes are lustrous and shiny, they also draw attention to their every flaw. A matte finish, on the other hand, is a more natural one that exudes a clean and charming style that’s extremely popular for 2017.

Satin Floors Answer Consumer Demands

Some homeowners want to have a combination of glossy and matte flooring for their home. A satin finish option provides a bit of shine with the balance and muted look of matte. Flooring with a satin finish is a great choice for homeowners who want to stick with a trend that is likely to be around for years.

Patterns Are Trending

Patterns in hardwood flooring enable consumers to take their home’s interior from beautiful to breathtaking. Diagonally angled floors, herringbone patterns, and wide-planked floors are examples of some of the hottest pattern trends for 2017.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match a few of the trends mentioned above. Doing so allows you to feed your creativity while ensuring that your home looks unique.
