Hardwood is not only natural but also timeless, warm, classic, and can last for over a century. You can change the color and finish of wood floors as interior design trends change. It will create a more welcoming and cozy look for your home. The value of the property will increase, which is why most homeowners opt for the real deal, wood floors.

Last year we had a high demand for gray wood flooring and gray vinyl planks, this year the trend is not going anywhere while it’s still very much in demand.

Brown walnut hardwood flooring trends 2021

Yes, brown walnut. We believe richer brown walnut is making a revolution into more traditional style homes this year. Walnut is exceptionally beautiful and provides a warm feel thanks to the rich, dark colors and natural grain designs. This wood species will make a statement in any room. Walnut tends to look warm and rustic and shows grains and knots more distinctly than certain other species, so it’s perfect if you’re aiming for a more natural look.

TEXTURES - Famous trends in hardwood flooring in 2021

hardwood floors texture trends 2021

Wire Brushed floors, also called distressed but a more modern version of distressed, can range from moderate to extreme in texture. To create wire brush wood floors, the wood is delicately brushed with steel bristles, opening the grain, removing the soft portion of the top of the wood plank, leaving the hardest wood and revealing a subtle scuffed effect. It’s a warm, natural texture you can see and feel that accentuates contrasts in color and masks the effects of daily traffic. This texture is a good choice for hardwoods such as Oak and Hickory and it generally looks best with a matte finish on them. The texture gives a distressed look to the floor which can be a great choice for rustic or farmhouse interiors.

We normally install wire brushed hardwood in a pre-finished form as the wire brushing labor is very intensive, it has to be done by hand.
