Hardwood flooring trends

We’ve heard a lot about “The Nordic Track” and how Scandinavia is at the forefront of green, sustainable, clean living. If you’ve ever travelled to Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland, one trend you may have come across is good old-fashioned whitewashed hardwood floors. This old trend is making a comeback.

Hardwood floors can last a lifetime if properly maintained, but styles change and so does your aesthetic. What seemed like a good idea five years ago, may not fit into your life today. The great thing about hardwood floors is that you can update them at any time. All you need is a skilled craftsman, and you can turn old hardwood floors that have become faded, scratched, dented, discolored, etc. into shiny new floors – or matte new floors. The choice is yours.

Choosing the right wood species for your floors

White oak flooring from T&G can easily be whitewashed, or kept natural to balance darker furniture and walls.

The 80’s whitewashed floors are back in style

Although whitewashed floors have been around forever, they will always give your home a modern, clean feel, but still keeping a sense of its rustic qualities. It’s both modern and antique at the same time.

Whitewashed floors will also be able to brighten up a home that features a lot of dark wood or dark colors in the decor. A country cabin or farmhouse style home with exposed dark wood and leather furniture can benefit from whitewashed floors by bringing in light and opening up the room to making it feel bigger.
