Color, Color Everywhere

Of course, you?re going to want your new floors to match your d?cor ? cabinet color, paint color, appliance color, furniture colors and patterns, the list goes on and on. Your new flooring also needs to look good next to any other flooring you have in adjoining rooms.

Conventional wisdom says smaller rooms are best suited for lighter colors. Lightly colored floors tend to give your smaller room a fresher and airy feeling. In other words, it helps open the room up.

Darker colored wood and wood-look planks are still very popular. Many feel darker colors add a level of sophistication and elegance to any room.

Grey and greige colored hardwood and wood-look planks are also extremely popular. Most collections today feature at least 2 options where grey tones are prominent. Flooring with grey undertones can add character and drama to your room and even a rustic feel.

Over the past year or so, whitewashed and bleached oaks have become very popular. These colors tend to work best in more contemporary and modern spaces. Feedback from our clients say that they love these colors because it puts the focus on natural wood grain, without making the floor look too busy.

Is Plank Width a Factor?

While considering your color, you?re going to also want to consider plank width, as it can have a dramatic effect on the look of your new floor. It?s not as simple as the difference between wide or narrow plank flooring. Plank width affects style, look and how appropriate your floors are for your d?cor.

Today?s hardwood and wood-look planks are getting wider and longer. Some designers love the look of many seams, which means narrower floorboards are ideal. If you prefer a uniform look where seams are not as visible, choose wider widths. You may also want to consider the overall dimensions of your room. Large rooms look great with wide planks.

Still having a hard time deciding? The reality is that a living room, kitchen or any room can look amazing with planks of any size. Essentially, it is a style decision that can shape the design of your home, not to mention increasing its value should you choose hardwood.

Final Thoughts

Trendy styles and colors may help sell a home in the short turn but may become ?dated? very quickly. If you?re thinking of selling, and are remodeling to get the most bang for your buck, select what current designers are showcasing. Right now, that includes super dark flooring colors, planks with undertones of gray, or natural-looking floors that look like you pulled them directly from nature.

Classic looks never go out of style. If you?re having trouble deciding, worried about how you?ll feel in a few years, we often recommend erring on the side of classic. You?ll never be sorry when you stick with tones that have been around for years.
