2018 Hardwood Flooring Trends

European White Oak in wide plank has been a staple of my designs. It’s the light organic look that instantly refreshes a tired space. But while it is still a look to keep, I am loving some new wood flooring trends. A rich layering of mixed woods in a space creates depth and interest and your floors can help you get this look.

For 2018, I am thinking about playing with wood tone, size, and pattern. Light colored beams and accents? Go warm on the floor with a medium tone wood. Want to make a statement in the entry or set a room apart? Break the line of your hardwood and install a parquet floor in a herringbone pattern. Take a look at the spaces below and see some of the hardwood flooring looks we are loving now.

Warm things Up: Moving toward Medium Toned Wood

Even though I think light colored oak is a beautiful timeless look, I am liking the warmth that medium toned wood brings to a space. It’s especially a look to consider in an all white home where a slightly darker, warmer wood will create beautiful contrast.

Play with Scale: Narrow Strip Hardwood

Narrow hardwood is a classic look, revived from the 40’s and 50’s. I am loving it in Patti Wagner’s kitchen remodel where the narrow floor lines contrast with the chunkier wood of the island.

Decorative Wood Patterns

Parquet flooring is a high-end look that brings Old World European charm to a space. To run it through an entire home might be too expensive or even too busy, but it’s a perfect way to set apart an individual room.

Mixed Material Pattern: Wood + Cement Tile

I love warm natural wood paired with cool gray (we highlighted the look in this Perfect Pairings post). Mixing your wood planks with cement tile makes a beautiful statement. Creating your own pattern, like Joanna Gaines did in this entry, personalizes your home.
