Floor Plan: 3 Hardwood Trends to Try

Classic, yet contemporary, today’s flooring trends mix modern appeal with a touch of tradition. Whether you’re a homeowner looking to update or a home seller seeking buyers, upgrade your floors with one of these fresh hardwood trends.

Gray – The new neutral in flooring, the color gray has an understated sophistication that complements a home’s attributes instead of distracting from it. “Gray is an easy color to style around – it goes with most any accent color,” says celebrity home design guru Ty Pennington.

Whitewashed – The soft and airy hues of light flooring are a clean and simple style that work as well in a beachside cottage as in an urban loft. From a functional standpoint, this type of flooring conceals dust while making spaces feel larger.

Distressed – The natural contours, subtle textures and rich tones give distressed flooring a vintage and authentic appearance that harkens back to old-world craftsmanship. Says “Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles” star Josh Altman, “I see a lot of [distressed flooring] due to its universal palatability to different decor and low maintenance required to keep it looking good.”
