1. Dark Shades of Wood

    26904161_1178841815579032_2819067285026201171_nDark colored wood was fairly uncommon 10 years ago but it is a trend that has been growing for quite some time.  Dark woods with a light accent color create a bold yet elegant and modern effect.The one major downside to darker woods is maintenance.  It can be a lot more work to maintain its beautiful, sleek style.  If you have a busy household, kids, pets, etc, you may want to consider a light option.On the other hand, if you prioritize style, in my opinion, you can’t go wrong with a nice ebony wood floor with a Country White finish.

  2. Grey/grey blend hardwood floors

    Grey/grey blendsGrey flooring has been on the rise the past few years.  Grey hardwood floors can be a nice way to create a cool, comfortable vibe in your home.  Grey wood is a good bit easier to clean than darker ebony hardwood floors.  Grey wood being a newer trend will help give your home a unique style.  This will surely make it a topic of conversation. Even more recently we’ve seen people mixing grey with other colors.  A particularly stunning wood color is the combination of grey and beige, or “greige”.  We’re seeing new blends all the time, if you are interested definitely keep an eye out to see where this trend grows.

  3. Light wash and Whitewashed wood

    Whitewashing wood has recently been making a comeback.  After being over-done back in the ’80s, at last, the white/light wash has returned!  Basically, an inverse of the dark scheme mentioned above, a whitewash with a dark accent can be equally modern, elegant, and all around beautiful.  It can achieve this while being a bit easier to clean.  It will still be a great way to help your interior stand out.
