4 Wood flooring trends for 2022
Trends for 2022 to get inspired for your next remodel project!
In 2021, numerous hardwood flooring trends have emerged that are a continuation of the design trends seen in the past.
No matter how much appeal nearly all forms of hardwood have, however, there’s always a few standout types of wood flooring that emerge each year. These trending flooring styles capture people’s imaginations and grow quickly in popularity once introduced.
Check out these wood flooring trends for 2022; to get inspired for your next remodel project:
1. Rich, Varied Colors
Floors are getting bolder in terms of color and style, and that includes hardwoods. While many hardwood floors have some amounts of subtle variation in them, newer trends are turning this up a notch. This means either utilizing a hardwood that has a naturally wild and bold grain, or that features a blend of different colors and hardwood species together.
One way to get this look is to use a reclaimed wood blend. Blends pull differently sized planks and different wood tones, then finish them together for a cohesive look.
Use a blend with rich variation like this one in sunny areas that can really let the colors show.
2. Smokey Wood Floor Tones
The color gray swept through the interior design world a few years ago; and no area of the home or office has been left untouched. This year, another trendy gray look is sweeping through the interior design world.
Smokey toned floors offer additional drama and character to solid hardwood floors. These floors have a unique look to them that’s very appealing.
Almost any type of wood species can go through the process of creating a smokey look. These hardwoods get their color without having to apply stain. The wood planks are placed in a chamber where ammonia is released into the air. The wood reacts to the ammonia which causes the color change. Overall, the process gives the wood a dark tone and enhances the natural grain of the wood.
3. Bleached or Whitewashed Floors
For contemporary spaces, you can’t go wrong with a smooth, light, wide plank hardwood floor. Hardwoods naturally darken and develop a patina as they age. But, a floor that’s been whitewashed takes on an entirely new look that’s very appealing in modern design trends.
Lighter wood tones help to brighten up a space and bleached or whitewashed wood tones create a relaxed and rustic atmosphere in a home.
The process for bleaching a wood floor involves adding a chemical solution to the wood surface to remove the color or stain. Whitewashing will give wood a white look while still showcasing the natural wood grain.
4. Rustic Textures
Rustic floors have a lot of allure. They call to mind nature and natural textures and surfaces, which in turn have a calming effect on the viewer.
