Six Hardwood Flooring Trends for 2017

Interior design involves more than just paint colours and furniture. Your flooring can also be a beautiful and luxurious extension of your home’s style and décor. From wide plank hardwood flooring, to ash and white oak hardwood flooring, to oiled hardwood floors, the right flooring can make a stylish statement in your home. If you’re looking to update your hardwood flooring, we’ve collected the top six trends for hardwood floors in Toronto.

Wide Planks

Wide plank hardwood flooring gives the illusion of a larger space by adding a feeling of expansiveness to your home. Wide planks are usually longer than narrower planks, which means there are fewer breaks in your flooring. Wide plank hardwood flooring can also be installed horizontally, diagonally, and vertically, depending on your style and the effect you want to create.

Mid-Tone Hardwood

Darker and cooler wood tones are still on-trend in 2017. Mid-tone hardwood flooring makes a bold and sophisticated statement, compared to the simple and clean feel provided by lighter-hued floors. If your style leans more towards elegant than bohemian, mid-tone hardwood flooring throughout your home will make it look luxurious and grand, no matter the size.

Grey has been a trendy shade in the fashion industry for several years, and its popularity has spilled into the world of interior design. Grey hardwood flooring looks modern and unique, yet simultaneously classic. The grey stain used over the hardwood also emphasizes the wood’s natural grooves and grain patterns, which adds an interesting texture and charm to your floors.
