Spring is the perfect time to freshen up your space by upgrading to affordable new hardwood, bamboo or laminate floors from Lumber Liquidators. Whether you’re looking to remodel your entire home, or just update a room, this season’s hottest flooring trends offer something for every taste and budget.
Gray: The New Neutral
With its clean and understated elegance, gray is the new neutral and this spring’s hip, new color trend. Already a fashionable look for walls, furnishings, and home accessories, gray has also emerged as the must-have stain for floors. And it’s no surprise. This versatile hue provides a stylish and modern look that works well in casual and coastal settings. Whether you choose weathered oak, deep charcoals, or silvered browns, gray flooring will give your home a fresh new look that is both timely and timeless.
Lumber Liquidators has one of the largest selections of gray flooring styles you’ll find with hardwood, bamboo, laminate, and vinyl varieties.
Bold Colors and Patterns
While gray is the fastest growing new trend, it isn’t the only color that continues to impress. Vibrant reds, ebony browns, and other bold flooring hues and patterns remain a noteworthy style this season. These colors work particularly well when showcasing light cabinetry or furniture, adding a pleasing contrast and unexpected punch of style. You’ll get a memorable look for your home that defines your style instead of distracting from it.
Color is not the only trend to consider when updating your home with new flooring. Texture is also an important element that can really have an impact. A great way to get the look is with distressed flooring. There are many distressed styles to choose from, including handscraped, wirebrushed and French bleed, each with their own unique, time-worn charm. This subtle weathering and aging exposes the rich wood grain producing a floor with both casual charm and on-trend sophistication.
Whatever type of distressed flooring you choose, we have an array of colors and styles - all with the lowest possible prices.
Wide Plank Flooring
Like distressed flooring, wide plank floors fuse historical design with fresh style that continues to be a popular choice for homeowners. Inspired by the craftsmanship of days gone by, wide planks are a merging of trend and tradition that will add character to any space. Wide planks have an eclectic beauty and work well in just about any setting.
Generally, wide plank flooring is anything over 5 inches, but in terms of trend, board width over 2 or 3 inches is in vogue.
Low-Gloss, Matte Finishes
Matte finishes are a growing trend that first surfaced in interior paints. Now, this European-inspired look has moved to flooring with low-gloss finishes that add depth and character to any décor. Not only uniquely beautiful, but also easy to care for because the oil-finish look is great for hiding small scratches and dirt.
Bellawood Matte Flooring is leading this trend by offering a variety of bamboo and hardwoods in today’s hottest stains.
Flooring On Walls & Ceilings
Personal touches make a house a home. So, it’s no surprise that wood accent walls and wood textured ceilings have emerged as an exciting new trend. While hardwood finishes are more commonly used for flooring, just about any type of wood can be installed anywhere you want to create a hint of drama. Better yet, it makes for a versatile and durable surface that adds architectural interest, with a minimal investment.
For a cottage chic look, try wood plank flooring on your walls or ceilings in a whitewashed stain.
Thanks to their unique beauty and surprising durability, Bamboo flooring continues to be a popular choice for homeowners. It is a renewable and durable product that is two times harder than red oak, making it an excellent choice for any home. Available in a variety of stains, styles, and textures, bamboo floors offer a delicate, yet sophisticated look that will always be in style.
