Light, blonde wood, often found in bamboo flooring, is gaining steam. Light colors make your space look bigger, brighter and more open. They also hide the fact that you haven’t cleaned your floor in 2 weeks a whole lot better than their darker counterpart.

“I anticipate an increase in the demand for affordable, local, sustainable flooring products. Local wood reclamation, whether that wood is being salvaged from old barns or rescued from underneath old and outdated carpeting, is going to be popular across the country. I also imagine we will see an increase in popularity of lighter wood flooring, even softer wood like pine and cork, and lighter stains on wood flooring, as lighter color floors pair well with trendy bright and bold paint and wallpaper colors.” – Cindy Weinstock, The Flooring Lady

**Note: Be careful purchasing hand scraped wood floors. Many companies will call their floors hand scraped, but they really use a machine making each plank look similar and more uniform. It is less expensive for them, but it does not offer the same effect.

Though the floors were made of wood then, there were not sanded or finished. It wasn’t until the 1850s that the hardwood flooring would actually start to be mass produced. It was a very popular choice, and continued to thrive until the era of linoleum flooring, which brought heavy competition. Linoleum was easier to install, and was a lot less maintenance than hardwood flooring.

Yes, expect to see these angled wood floors every once in awhile for decades to come. The rareness, in my opinion, means this trend won’t quickly grow old like others – I expect it to have a longer shelf life.

“For 2017 we’re seeing a continued desire for wider and longer hardwood planks, and also a more informal layout using different width planks.  Wider planks have the advantage of creating a more unified look – with fewer joint lines – which also highlights the inherent aesthetic of the wood, that is to say the knots and grain. Because texture is going to be important this year, we are expecting to see increased popularity for hardwoods that have distinct hand-crafted finishes, such as hand scrapped and wire-brushed finishes. Whilst gray tones are still going to be hugely popular, we might also see a growing return back to more natural and dark wood tones.  And one key trend that is certain to hit consumers in 2017 is herringbone and chevron parquet designs which are being heavily featured on trend-setting home décor and renovation shows and websites this year.” – Jamie, Home Flooring Pros
