Hardwood flooring trends

Hardwood flooring trends

Surveys conducted by industry insiders show that wood flooring is at the top of most homeowners 'wish lists.' In addition to its good looks, wood is durable and non-allergenic, and it doesn't take much effort to keep it clean.

Couch Potato Carpet and Flooring offers a wide selection of hardwood flooring in Hummelstown, PA. In-store and at-home shopping is available.

Types of wood

You can enjoy the refined look of wood floors by installing solid hardwood flooring and engineered wood. 'Just as attractive' manufactured wood has many applications with its hardwood surface layer.

Engineered wood tolerates moisture and needs no attachment to a wood subfloor. Instead, planks are fit together to construct a floating floor.

Light and dark

Very light wood and very dark wood floors are fashionable at this time. Whitewashed planks and light-wood species that are sealed only are two favored light wood choices.

Stains are used to create some of the dark floors. Dark wood species like mahogany and walnut are also often chosen. Some homeowners enjoy traditional floors in medium shades.

Species for wood flooring

Perennial favorite oak is still the favored wood species among homeowners. This domestic species is abundant in the United States. It is darker in color than red oak, a popular wood that brings pinkish or reddish hues to a room.

Other trendy woods include hickory, birch, ash, and maple. More costly exotic woods and bamboo, classified as a grass, have many fans, too.
