Hardwood floors in your living room are one designer trend that has stuck around since the dawn of interior design. We have gotten more creative, and our options for hardwood flooring are greater than ever, so even though we may all have hardwood floors in our living rooms, we can still make them unique to our personal taste and home aesthetic.

Popular hardwood floors in the living room

Let the natural variances from plank to plank create a mosaic look in your living room.

Hardwood floors in your living room

The types of hardwood flooring that we have to choose from makes the decision process a little more complicated than in the past. Today, we have a variety of species, colors, lengths, and widths, as well as choosing between solid hardwood and engineered hardwood. The installation process alone takes a bit of consideration. Working with skilled and professional hardwood flooring installation experts will take some of the pressure off of choosing. A professional will be able to look at your living room and the existing subfloors to let you know the best type of flooring.

Hardwood flooring choices for the living room

As far as color is concerned, hardwood flooring trends are all over the map. We still see a lot of deep, dark, chocolate hardwood floors. Many Colorado homeowners are choosing floors that will complement their rustic, country homes, and the darker wood species adds warmth and luxury to your living room. However, lighter wood tones are also just as popular, making a traditional home a little more modern.

Hardwood flooring for high traffic areas

Customized engineered white oak flooring in Colorado

White oak floors are great for a high traffic area like the living room.

The living room is a high traffic area, and a popular choice is using reclaimed wood or a species with natural flaws and variations in color and texture. Cherry and red oak are very popular choices for the living room. Allowing the wood to keep its natural tones creates a unique mosaic look in your living room. The natural variants in color from plank to plank will hide any wear and tear that they may see over time.

Reclaimed wood for your living room also comes with the bonus of being environmentally friendly, so they not only look great, but this choice will also make you feel great.
