2017 is the year of unpredictability. In years past, neutral flooring was your best bet for your Dallas home; however, in 2017, it’s time to make a statement. Many want their homes to stand out of the crowd and not blend in with the rest. The way this is being achieved is by choosing hardwood flooring that is deeper and brighter in color. Dark stains are going to be popular as they bring drama and a rustic feel to most homes. These floors tend to go best with white and cream colored walls to truly stand out and bring presence to any room. With a dark floor, be aware that it will tend to make spaces look smaller. Dark flooring such as this is great for large open spaces or open floor plans.
On the other end of the color spectrum, you will be seeing a lot of blonde flooring. Light hardwood floors will assist your home in appearing larger than it may be, and it looks great up against some bright, bold wall color or a splash of white. This wood tends to be lower maintenance since it’s not going to show dirt and dust as much as a dark hardwood floor. Either way you go, the main takeaway here is that the in between is out and the extreme is in.
Gray floors are the only exception to the bold color rule. Gray floors have been gaining steam over the last few years and the trend is still going strong. These floors add calm and tranquility to a space. Gray floors tend to look good with most wall color choices, so it leaves a lot of versatility for the design of your home in Dallas.
These are the major color trends that you will be seeing with hardwood flooring. Not only color trends but texture as well. Hand scraped and wire brushed are what we will be seeing a lot of this upcoming year, as well as different finishing techniques.
