Can you believe it?s almost 2018? The experts at West Palm Beach?s Quantum Flooring bring you the 411 on next year?s hardwood flooring trends:

1. Hardwood flooring will remain the most popular choice, whether in West Palm Beach or anywhere else. It adds a rich elegance to any environment, fits into any traditional or contemporary atmosphere, and it lasts for years.
2. Rich, natural woods: Parquet Wood Flooring is making a come-back, so we?ll once again be seeing geometric patterns, tile mosaics and herringbone patterns.
3. Forget the area rugs! People will want to call attention to their hardwood floors, so there won?t be any cover-ups! (But always keep an area rug or mat by the entrance, so people don?t drag dirt in on their shoes and cause the hardwood flooring to scratch.)
4. Engineered hardwood flooring will keep rising in stature. For years, some thought solid hardwood was the only choice, but all that?s changed, because people are understanding that engineered hardwood flooring truly is real wood. Only the construction is different, making it more stable and moisture resistant than solid, and able to be installed in places where solid can?t go.
5. Wide planks are going to be big. Really big. Like a foot or more wide.
6. Grey hardwood flooring will be even more popular in 2018. Remember, gray is a cooler color, so you want to pair it with some warmer tones, like eggplant or burnt orange.
7. Distressed hardwood flooring will become a favorite among the environmentally- conscious. It?s taken (or reclaimed) from old and unused buildings, so no trees will be harvested. The wood also has a lot of character, possibly making it popular with Millennials, who are known for their desire to be unique.
