Unique Hardwood Flooring Options to Consider for Your Denver Home


September 12, 2018

Hardwood flooring is almost always a great option for homeowners looking to add style and class to their Denver home. This timeless flooring option provides any interior environment with an unmatched level of elegance, which most other flooring fails to match. But hardwood flooring doesn’t just come in one, uniform style-choice, as there are plenty of different options to choose from and consider when making a decision. Before you decide on your preferred hardwood flooring option, here are a number of recent trends to take into account before finalizing your plan.

Darker Colors


Hardwood flooring usually brings to mind a light-brown color scheme, as this is one of the most common colors used in flooring plans. But contrary to popular belief, there are a variety of color options to select from prior to beginning your next flooring project. One recent trend to keep an eye on is the use of darker colors in hardwood flooring. If you have plenty of white colors in the surrounding environment, a darker wood floor can provide a perfect contrast to showcase your interior.

Satin Finished Floors


For those homeowners who are turned off by an excessive amount of polish and shine in their wood floors, an excellent compromise is to utilize a satin finish. Satin is a perfect, in-between choice for homeowners who don’t want to fully forgo a level of lustrousness, but don’t want to have their floor overly shiny. A satin finish will provide a neutralizing effect on your floors, as it will more than likely stand in the background instead of being a prominent feature. For those concerned with having their floor come off as being too gaudy or glossy, this can be a great idea to consider.

Diagonal Wood Patterning


Traditionally, floors are laid out in a uniform pattern, as they are installed straight across in a perpendicular angle to a wall. However, a recent trend in flooring has seen homeowners installing their wood floors in an angled flashion. In this manner, a floor would lay diagonal in a room, giving the environment a more rare and unique feel that will set your interior environment apart from every other hardwood flooring option. If you’re in the mood to make a statement by selecting an out-of-the-box angle selection, having your wood floor installed diagonally can be a terrific way to stand out from the crowd.
