Hardwood Flooring Trends in 2017

The days of having carpeting in every single room of your home are long gone. Homeowners are increasingly turning to hardwood flooring as a better option for their homes. At Holz & Stein, our flooring contractors stay on top of trending flooring styles to better serve our customers. Many of our customers prefer more traditional flooring styles in their homes, but others like a more on-trend home. If you’re interested in giving your home a modern updates, here are a few flooring styles you should consider.

Dark Hardwood Flooring

For 2017, you can expect to see more and more dark hardwood floors being installed. Homeowners like how sleek and modern it looks in their space. Dark flooring looks best paired with a contrasting white or cream colored wall color. Our wood floors come in both solid wood and engineered wood depending on your budget and the durability you seek. For customers looking for durability and style, we recommend choosing our engineered hardwood in Birch-Lava. It maintains the look you want without sacrificing function.

Gray Flooring

Our Dallas flooring contractors are noticing more and more homeowners choosing gray hardwood flooring. It’s a soft color and adds an interesting element to any room. Holz & Stein offers several engineered gray flooring options to suit the look you want. If you want a completely natural hardwood, you’ll most likely need to have your flooring contractor stain the wood and then seal it to protect it from wear and tear. This can get costly, which is why we do our best to inform homeowners of all their options.

Planks With Multiple Widths

Another trend our flooring installers have noticed are homeowners choosing multiple plank widths for their home. Traditionally, homes that had hardwood used multiple plank widths to get the most use out of the tree that was cut down to create the hardwood. At Holz & Stein, we offer planks in a range of widths from 2” to 8” and wider.

Patterned Hardwood Flooring

A final trend we’ll be seeing more of this year are homeowners who install wood floors in patterns. The patterns we’re seeing the most of are herringbone and chevron. Both are traditional patterns however, it hasn’t been explicitly used in wood flooring before.
