2011 Hardwood Flooring Trends

Is it time for a new floor in your home? If so, you probably want to make sure that you install an aesthetically pleasing floor that is not only functional and durable, but also stylish. But what is trending right now in the flooring industry?

This article from EzineArticles.com explains. 

  1. Neutral Colors: Color is expected to play a bigger role in home decorating this year, with the biggest impact coming in the realm of neutral colors, a realm that used to encompass just two options – light brown and beige. Now decorators say that colors like mint green, light lavender, light yellow, and even peach are making their way into the “neutral zone.” The key is to pair these light colors with a more traditional hardwood floor, like oak.
  2. Bright Colors: Nothing can cheer up a home quite like bright colors. Experts say intense turquoise and vivid greens can play up a dull and dreary looking room. The key is to use neutral colors to balance out these vibrant hues.
  3. Let the room speak to you: When it comes to the hardwood finishes of the season, let the design of the room dictate the direction you’re going in. If you are thinking modern, then a satiny finish will be perfect. If you want to go classic or vintage, then you should look into hand scraped.
