The look of wood is here to stay! Wood is everywhere! Walls, counters, shelves, and especially floors. Hardwood flooring adds value to your home, and it’s durable, stylish, and natural. You have many options when using hardwood, including colors, finishes and sizes. The combination of these three qualities will make your floors have a unique look that resembles your personality and the personality of your home.
Let’s learn more about these three qualities, and understand what each one can do for you.
When it comes to natural materials like wood, color isn’t exactly what comes to mind. The hottest looks come in hues from grays and blondes that are becoming popular, to the return of the classic deep browns.
The finish of your hardwood can make an impact in a big way depending on the style you choose. A matte finish is subtle and casual for a modern space, while floors with a natural finish like wire-brushed and hand-scraped add rustic texture in a farmhouse style room.
Want to add a bit of drama? The gloss of a smooth finish creates dimension and reflection. Honed floors like this can create shine in any style, from traditional to contemporary. For example, this Eco Forest Mallorca Wire Brushed Solid Stranded Bamboo has a high sheen that brings drama to this contemporary scene.
You can now get wood planks in more sizes than ever before! You can use the wider, longer sizes to create an illusion of a bigger space, or bring out the high-variation of colors between the planks, like this quirky space with Eco Forest Navarea Smooth Locking Solid Stranded Bamboo.
