Current trends in hardwood flooring
Dark hardwoods: Regardless of the type of hardwood floors, many customers are opting for dark – in some cases very dark – stain colors. Popular stains are ebony, walnut and even true black. These stains look different on different types of wood so be sure to get a sample of your selection to make sure it’s the look you’re seeking.
Gray floors: Gray has been a popular choice in flooring for a few years and gray wood floors are no exception. Gray floors can be either rustic or sophisticated depending on the finishing style and your personal decor. Either way, they make a beautiful, fashionable floor choice.
Natural floors: While dark or gray hardwood floors are the most popular choice at our Indianapolis hardwood store we are also hearing customers begin to ask for a completely natural floor. A natural wood floor with no stain brings a very casual, airy feel to a room.
Each of these trends is available in a variety of wood types and grain patterns. Learn more about hardwood floors.
