As we move into 2017, some hardwood flooring trends have begun to emerge that we are excited to share with Bozeman homeowners. Read on to learn more about what’s popular in hardwood flooring from the team at Floor Coverings International Bozeman.

Light hardwood flooring, Bozeman MTLight-Colored Hardwood

If you were not a fan of the grey flooring trend, then you’ll be excited about the blonde hardwoods that are becoming more popular this year. While grey is still common, and certain to be an excellent design choice for the foreseeable future, more homeowners are turning to super-light colored hardwoods to bring light and spaciousness to a room.

Light hardwood is synonymous with modern decor, but it’s a good fit for traditional homes as well, particularly if you want to brighten the space. Some hardwoods are naturally light in color, such as white oak and maple. Light-colored stains can also be applied to darker woods to bring out their creamy-colored tones.

Distressed hardwood flooring in Bozeman MTRustic Finishes

Rustic hardwood finishes have been popular for some time, particularly in the Bozeman area. We are pleased to see that this trend remains popular in 2017. Distressed hardwood and hand-scraped hardwood flooring are both excellent options to bring some rustic style to any home. This textured finish is available in both solid hardwood and engineered hardwood planks. Or, search for reclaimed hardwood and really make a statement with your new flooring.

Parquet hardwood flooring in Bozeman MTShapes and Patterns

In addition to brighter colors and textured flooring, Bozeman homeowners are incorporating patterned flooring into their designs as well. Parquet hardwoods might seem a thing of the past, but herringbone and chevron parquet patterns are making a comeback in a big way.

Random width flooring and plank hardwood flooring are also great options to play with patterns and make a statement with your floors. Both styles are a tribute to original hardwood floors, once common throughout Montana. Before flooring was mass-produced, hardwood planks were often only available in varying sizes and wide widths. Incorporating this style in your home is a great way to add charm and character, while staying up-to-date on the trends.
