With the help of interior design experts Light Design, we have created your full guide to trends in timber flooring.
If you’re looking at a way to revitalise the atmosphere and design in your home, then a change in the flooring is a great way to do it. There have been some definitive trends towards the use of timber flooring as a way to break out of the carpet and tile styles that have dominated the markets for so long.
Darker Stained Timber Floors – if you’re looking for some amazing contrasts of white walls or even white furnishings then a timber floor of coffee brown or even a deep black will do the trick. Dark floors tend to make the room look smaller and also show the dust more, so it’s an option for a larger room.
Timber Floor Colour Trends
Not everybody likes the darker stained timber so there has been a lean towards homeowners moving away from traditional colours and looking at a bolder impact that different woods might offer.
Blonde Timber Floor – this colour is quite the opposite extreme, but very popular as it can make a small room look much larger and brighter, especially if you have some large window space allowing in the natural light. Check with your supplier about what light-coloured wood is available.
