2018 Hardwood Trends

Hardwood flooring continues to be a fast growing flooring choice among homeowners and remodelers. Over the last couple years, there has been a seismic shift in style and colorations of hardwood flooring, and here’s what the hardwood trends are looking like this year:

Wide Planks

  • Standard five-inch wide hardwood flooring is becoming basic with six-inch and seven-inch wide planks becoming more common for their ability to make spaces feel larger.

Diagonal/Angled Planks

  • Laying your wood flooring diagonally instantly modernizes your home, making it look chic and expensive. The downside to doing diagonal floors is they do cost a bit more in materials and labor, but the end result is well worth the expense!

Gray Wood

  • Reds and oranges are out and browns and grays are in. In fact, in some ways it’s all about the color. Widely available finish colors include an array of browns, grays, whites and even blacks that modernize the room and provide a neutral base for easy decorating.

Domestic Material

  • Domestic species such as oak, hickory, and maple continue to gain in popularity. It’s the lower grades of these domestic hardwoods that offer a more natural, rustic/vintage appearance, featuring nature’s fingerprints of knots, mineral streaks, graining and color variation, which are increasingly preferred.

Varying Widths

  • Choosing boards with varying widths gives the floor a fresh, one-of-a-kind look. It’s also a style that hearkens back to historic homes, built when builders made use of every part of the tree. However, this floor too requires extra cost and installation time, so again be prepared for the investment.
