Wood floors continue to be a popular option for homeowners thanks to their durability, ease of cleaning and hypoallergenic properties. Wood and wood-like floors come in a variety of options, including traditional hardwoods, laminate and luxury vinyl tile, and the colors and styles available are nearly endless. Stay up to date on the latest designs and help your customers choose the right wood floors for their project with these 2022 trends.
Varied colors. Some hardwood types have naturally bold graining that adds variety and interest to the floor. You can also suggest customers use several shades of wood to create that same varied look.
Light tones. From grays to light oaks, neutral and light colors are popular right now for hardwood floors because they hide dirt and imperfections and coordinate with most design schemes, whether warm or cool.
Wide planks. Using wide planks creates a more cohesive look in a room and makes floors look less busy with fewer lines and individual pieces. They also add that rustic touch so many homeowners crave right now.
Lots of texture. Falling under the desire for rustic looks, textured hardwoods also provide that rustic feel and offer visual interest. Reclaimed wood offers textures with nail holes, scuffs and other blemishes, or new hardwood products are available that are textured.
Eco-friendly options. Consumers desire eco-friendly options all over their house, including their flooring. Popular green wood floor options in 2022 include marmoleum, bamboo, cork and reclaimed hardwoods.
