Why Does West Palm Beach Love Hardwood Flooring?

Words like ?exciting? and ?dynamic? are often used to describe West Palm Beach, FL. It can even be called somewhat eclectic, with a population that?s a little younger than any other city in Florida; exhilarating Clematis Street which is lined with some of the best restaurants, pubs and bars; a world-class art museum and a performing arts center where people can see and hear plays, dance, operas and concerts.

Then, you just go across the canal to explore the mansions of traditional Palm Beach.

It?s no wonder wood flooring is so popular, and buy your West Palm Beach hardwood flooring at Quantum Floors.

These floors have a style that?s as eclectic as this 3rd largest Florida city, and the colors alone make it so. There are three main color ranges: Light, dark and medium, and each offers their own brand of uniqueness. Not so long ago, dark ones were thought of as mainly traditional, but truth be told they can be even more modern than most. Dark also adds a layer of contrast. Customization is one of the trend buzzwords for 2018, so you may want to create a black and white kitchen with dark floors and white, or light wood cabinets, or install a mahogany or ebony floor next to a breathtaking ocean view, art or accessories, to bring out some undertones.

Light floors are youthful, airy and give an almost casual feeling. This hardwood flooring can also make a room look larger. You may want to create some contrast by pairing them with touches of color. By the way, it?s all about color this year; The Pantone Color Institute, a global authority on color intelligence, researches trends and development, so companies can make informed decisions about their products and design. Pantone named ultra violet as the 2018 Color of the Year, because of purple?s ?mystical and spiritual quality.? The color ?offers refuge from an overstimulated world? and ?energizes and inspires connection,? the company says on its website.

Medium tones are quirky, with knots, raised grains and patterns like Herringbone. They also have a cottage-like feel, and that can particularly suit one who lives on the water.

Don?t be concerned about Florida?s heat and humidity affecting the floor. Another option is engineered hardwood. It?s real wood, has a layered construction that makes it more stable and moisture-resistant than solid. That eliminates the expansion and shrinkage issue common to solid. It also allows for greater versatility in application, even being suitable for installation in high moisture environments like the bath.

Quantum Floors also has showrooms in Ft. Lauderdale, Boynton Beach and Palm Beach Gardens, FL.
