Spice Up Your Flooring in 2015!

Everyone loves a beautifully installed hardwood floor. It will never go out of style and it can transform a dull room into a sophisticated entertaining space. So far in 2015 designers are taking advantage of the new year to reintroduce dark hardwood, stylish vinyl, and classy cork floors.

Dark hardwood floors provide a contemporary and cosmopolitan look to homes while staying versatile and decorative with or without complementary furniture. Dark hardwood floors can come in many stains, but Ebony and Jacobean are the most popular for their polar extremes. Espresso is the happy medium between the two.

Dark hardwood floors are often used as a way to highlight white furniture or fixtures. The contrast between the dark brown and bright white is a classic look for homes. It takes a bit more upkeep than any other type of hardwood flooring because they have a tendency to show imperfections such as dirt and deep scratches.

Vinyl has a bad rap because of the old peel and stick composition that use to be installed in homes. Currently, there is a new type of vinyl called “luxury vinyl” that looks just like real wood but is still as heavy-duty as the old vinyl. It is the most affordable and resilient flooring solutions available and comes in hundreds of patterns, all of which are scratch resistant, pet-friendly, and easy to maintain and clean.

Cork flooring is extremely easy to install and maintain. It offers customers durability and also the added benefit of having a unique look that complements both classic and modern designs. The sustainable cork is warm and comfortable to walk on and does not require glue to be installed. The flooring has many options for color and can look beautiful in any setting – the only downside is that it may fade when in direct sunlight.

Dover Rug & Home provides expertly crafted flooring that uses only the finest domestic and exotic hardwoods. From the rustic, old-world charm of hand-sculpted and hand-scraped hardwoods to the more classic, traditional hardwood floor sanded to smooth perfection, we provide our customers with a vast selection of hardwoods, which add true value to your home.
