With concrete flooring, texturized looks and patterned styles becoming popular interior design trends for residential homes, hardwood flooring remains a high contender that often works with any styling. And that is because hardwood flooring can instantly transform a space with minimal effort. It works well as an accent in a home or as the focal point to a room. But it also remains the sophisticated choice that can fit in seamlessly with a change of interiors. As specialists in hardwood flooring Auckland, The Wooden Floor Company believes that wood is still a versatile material and is both design-friendly and functional.
Making a big statement in 2020, these are some of our anticipated hardwood flooring trends to look forward to.
1) Wire-brushed, Distressed And Reclaimed Floors
Although smooth hardwood floors still have an old-style appeal, a new trend that is emerging is textured floors. In particular, wire-brushing and distressed hardwood floors, which instantaneously give a room character. Incorporating reclaimed wood into flooring is also becoming an influential design trend, as it makes a home feel lived in rather than just newly constructed. It brings floors and rooms to life, in an understated manner.
2) Subdued And Earthy Toned Floors
Hardwood flooring has a visual appeal because of its woody, brown shades. But in 2020, expect to see a lot more wooden floors painted over in softer browns, light stone greys and whitewashed to add a naturalness to homes. The advantage of using hardwood flooring over other traditional materials is that they can be easily altered with paint to your preferred look.
3) Unique Layouts And Patterns On Floors
While tiled floors can achieve different layouts and patterns, hardwood flooring has a unique flair and is difficult to replicate. In 2020, we are bound to see Herringbone patterned and Chevron styled floors, as well as the use of wide planks. The benefit of using a layout or pattern is that you can create space with different sizing. Wider planks can make a room look bigger, and a Herringbone pattern can give the room a cosier feel.
