People are getting ultra creative when it comes to the layout of their floor. Patterns, angles, you name it. Of course, not all patterns are created equal.
There are plenty of dated pattern looks or patterns that only work in specific situations. However, there are plenty of hot looks going on right now that anyone can rock with the right modern decor.
Let’s look at what’s hot right now.
Herringbone Wood Floors
We’re not talking the 1970s short plank parquet flooring. New, trendy herringbone flooring layouts typically use longer planks and add interest and depth to the eye.
This trend isn’t likely to last forever, but it sure looks pretty while it’s here.
Diagonal / Angled Wood Floors
My favorite. Homeowners are changing things up by laying their wood flooring at an angle rather than straight on. This gives your floor (and home) a unique, modern and expensive look.
It does cost more in materials (and often installation), but the outcome is dreamy, yet still uncommon enough to maintain its luster.
Can it still be a trend if it’s uncommon? I think so.
Yes, expect to see these angled wood floors every once in awhile for decades to come. The rareness, in my opinion, means this trend won’t quickly grow old like others – I expect it to have a longer shelf life.
Wide Plank Wood Floors
It’s no secret that larger planks make your room look bigger. These large planks look modern, elegant and expensive in any room in the home.
Are you thinking about jumping on board? Well, you should!
Manufacturers are only trending towards even wider and longer planks. This trend will soon become a classic staple and will likely last the test of time.
Mixed Width Wood Floors
Our eyes love detail and the unexpected. That is why it is no surprise that mixed width wood floors are in demand.
Mixed width hardwood floors (unsurprisingly) combine multiple width planks to make the flooring pop. This can be done in a pattern or randomly for more variety.
As far as longevity, we predict this trend will be around for a while, but it is unlikely that it will become a flooring staple.
