Along with spring cleaning, one of the home improvements that many homeowners make is updating the look of their floors. It’s possible that after a long winter cooped up inside, your kids and pets have beaten up your hardwood floors. However, one easy way to renew their appearance is to get them a new layer of stain. Here are some of the trendiest flooring colors you can choose from this year.
Start by considering darker colors for your hardwood floors. It doesn’t always have to be black, either, because there are other dark colors that you can choose. This color has been one of the most popular in recent years, and the trend shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. However, the dark floors will show every last pockmark, scratch, and dent. So if you are concerned about that, then this color might not be the best choice for you.
Alternatively, you could also go with some cooler colors. This option doesn’t always equate to a “cool” color in vernacular terms – these are just darker tones of color that don’t have pops of red or yellow under them as these undertones lend warmth and pop to your floors that might not suit your vision of how to revitalize the room.
Shades of Grey
Grey is another color choice that has captured the imagination of interior designers and homeowners. Because this color is so neutral, it provides an ideal contrast for brighter decorations and home furnishings with their own, perhaps more exuberant textures. Silvery grey and grey tinted with hints of dark brown and ebony will stand the test of time.
The opposite of going darker or selecting something neutral is to pick a natural color instead. These lighter hardwood floors are just as attractive and appealing as their trendsetting counterparts. Just make sure you stick to a cool color that doesn’t have any trace of yellow in it.
You could always decide to have whitewashed floors instead. While this may sound boring at first, these aren’t your grandparents’ whitewashed picket fences. Whitewashed floors were all the rage in the 1980s, and that trend is on the upswing again. Only this time the white floors are supposed to look more subtle than they did back then – mimicking natural wood floors in the process – and white floors featuring a matte finish also helps your floors look like they belong in 2019.
