With the turn of the decade, many contractors and homeowners are eagerly anticipating the course of new flooring products, styles, and designs. Specific trends might be timeless with this flooring type, but there are four areas where savvy interior decorators and remodelers should monitor in the years to come.


1 – On-site Floor Finishing 


This is a relatively new practice that involves the installation of raw materials and then finishing the hardwood after putting planks in place. Not only does this help to provide a unique look and feel to the floor, but it also allows for levels of complexity that can tie it into the home’s decor and theme. One of the advantages of on-site finishing is seamlessly blending the new floor into other existing materials.


You should expect that this specific tailoring of your floor does not come with a small price tag. Because of your ability to suit the finish to the type of lighting, furniture, and other factors throughout the house, multiple finishes can be sampled until contractors and property owners agree on the perfect look.


When first installed, raw materials have noticeable seams. The finishing process conceals these edges during the finishing process, leaving behind a flat, stylish result.


2 – Get Rid of the Gloss and Make Way for Matte 


Much like paints, high gloss finishes might have their appeal in individual homes and specific applications, but these surfaces can be challenging to clean and show more dirt than other types. Gloss and semi-gloss have been classic looks for hardwood materials installed, but there is a growing trend to incorporate a flatter finish such as satin, oil, and matte.


  • Satin – An intermediate blend of the allure of a high-gloss finish and a completely flat look is satin. You can get a small degree of gloss sheen without broadcasting all dirt, scratches, and imperfections.
  • Oil – Oil finishes are a growing trend of their own and give off a natural look to the wood you have installed – even if the finish is a little duller compared to other options. This choice improves plank wood’s durability and strength, but you leave the floors more vulnerable to water and scratch damage.
  • Matte – This finish will continue to be more and more popular as time passes, as this is one of the better options against accumulating dirt and attracting unwanted attention. Not all floors are capable of pulling off this finish, however. Cheaper flooring materials will come out looking dull instead of the rich depth possible with higher-quality woods.

3 – Unique and Original Patterns for Interior Floors 


Many classic patterns like herringbone have always had a place in the construction of interior and exterior elements of residences. With hardwood, patterns create a contemporary and versatile look that can last for decades.


Herringbone is a standard pattern choice interlocking plank attractively. You can expect that the installation of herringbone patterns would cost more than the straight styles because it is more time-consuming. However, instead of installing plank at ninety-degree angles from the walls, these materials get installed at half of this angle – forty-five degrees. Diagonals, also known as angled patterns, have a high amount of waste in the trim work, increasing the overall installation costs.


4 – Wider Planks Might Be What You Are Missing 


Changing up the width of the flooring material components that you use can modify the entire room’s look. For this reason, mixed-width hardwood flooring is trending. This variance can add a unique element to your living space. Varying lengths and widths provide an unexpected level of detail to the room. You can appreciate that mixed-width usually means a combination of 3, 4.5, and 5.5-inch planks. Knowing this can help DIY installers to manage their space better.


Wider planks, in general, are also trending, but you should not lead to making this change in smaller spaces. Large planks overwhelm smaller living spaces. In larger, open areas, this can be a charming and contemporary look, however.
