As always, where fashions, fads and trends are concerned, it really is a case of what comes around goes around, and this is also true when it comes to wood flooring. Let’s delve into the realms of design and take a look at honest Wayfair reviews on FurnitureCap with what’s hot and what’s not in the world of wood flooring for 2020.
Strangely in this era of constant changes where technology is moving at 1000 miles per hour, where work/life balance is becoming more frantic, and where we seem to go from one world crisis to another, people are looking for alternatives. One of those alternatives is the appeal of slower historical times. This is reflected in hardwood flooring where wide planked, distressed and even hand-scraped flooring are making a stark return.
Similarly, another style that’s hot right now is using reclaimed and reused woods. As old seems to be the new trend, using reclaimed materials kind of fits in nicely with this theme. One company, for instance, specialises in turning old disused wine barrels into stunning flooring, complete with barrel branding marks. Others reuse old railway sleepers, and another company even recycles pallets. Just let your imagination flow.
As people are becoming more environmentally aware, eco-friendly wood flooring products are most definitely in for 2020. Products such as bamboo, cork and coconut may not seem like the most obvious of choices but sustainable and renewable they certainly are. Bamboo, for instance, is one of the fastest-growing species of plant on the planet and regrows rapidly after it’s harvested. Whilst cork is produced from the bark of the Cork Oak tree which regenerates itself without harming the tree.
Bold is most definitely back. You’ll see it in this year’s fashion, and it’s also reflected in flooring. Companies are starting to move away from the so-called warm tones that you expect from wood flooring, in favour of bolder, brighter and more daring colours. In fact, go as bold as you dare. Deep reds and sunburst yellows, burnt orange and emerald greens are most definitely in. If that isn’t enough, how about purchasing unfinished flooring and staining it in whatever colour you like? Now you have no excuse, the only thing that’s limiting you is your imagination.
Value for Money
Okay so this isn’t strictly a fashion trend per se, but it does reflect the world that we live in – 2020. Value to the savvy shopper is not about the cheapest price. Instead, it’s all about getting the highest quality products for the best possible value. In other words, people demand quality, but they also demand real value. Companies that can offer top quality products backed up with some excellent guarantees are going to be ahead of the game.
So there you have it, some of the hottest trends for 2020 and beyond. If you need more wood flooring inspirations, simply check online Wayfair Store or go to a local store to see what’s really going down.
