Trends in Hardwood Flooring

Nothing showcases a room quite like the richness of a polished hardwood floor. From exotics like Brazilian cherry to the distressed look captured by reclaiming flooring from structures built before the turn of the century, hardwood is the latest in flooring trends.

Durable and long lasting, hardwood floors these days come in a variety of planking sizes, graining patterns and finishes. From traditional species like oak, pine and hickory to the unusual and rare such as teak, wenge and spotted gum almost all hardwoods require the same easy maintenance routine.

Another popular option is flooring crafted from natural sustainable materials such as cork or bamboo.B Bamboo is a fast growing grass while cork comes from the bark of the cork oak tree and is regenerative.

No longer does the color palette for hardwood floors have to be just shades of tans or browns. Different species of trees produce flooring in hues of grey, white, red and black. It is also possible to install unfinished flooring and custom stain it.
