By now, you’ve probably heard the expression, “Design from the floor up!” That’s because the floor is the foundation of a room and sets the overall tone of a room.
Nothing beats natural hardwood flooring. It's charming, warm, classic, and timeless.
It adds value to a property and lasts for decades. Any update is sure to have those same qualities. Let's look at what's trending currently.
Colors: the light and dark
Designers love shades like blond, caramel, white and whitewashed because they coordinate easily. They also are terrific at hiding scuffs, scratches, light dirt, and dust.
That's not to say dark colors are out; they seem to get even darker. But remember, there's a wide assortment of stains, so you can make them as light and dark as you wish.
Engineered wood flooring: beauty and practicality
This hardwood flooring is more stable and better able to handle water. It has all the features of a solid, including knots, swirls, raised grains, textures, and color variations–but without the water worries.
It’s also durable and available with just about every wood trend!
Patterns and unique layouts
Remember the popular herringbone parquet wood floors of the 1970s? It's back!
Other popular layouts and patterns include chevron and random width.
Satin finishes: The great compromise
High gloss and matte finishes keep going back, and both are on-trend, but satin will never go out of style. Use it for your long-lasting wood floors in Sandy Springs, GA.
Satin-finished floors have a slight shine but are also muted enough to camouflage dirt and other imperfections. High-gloss floors can sometimes highlight them.
