For a long time now wood has been one of the materials most used as flooring in houses. It is an exceptional material, which gives warmth, elegance and comfort. Furthermore, it retains the heat in the winter, makes any space feel cosy and beautifies and refreshes every corner of your home.
Recently, there has been a revolution in the world of wooden flooring, both in new types and colours, as well as in new textures and finishes. Just as the Nordic style in interior design goes from strength to strength, wood is more and more present in those homes which take an interest in their decor.
In 2017, lighter toned wooden floors have become the most sought after: greys, off-whites or very light wood. These hues make spaces feel bigger and lighter and give the sensation of order and balance. All of this in natural wood, which is of a better quality, harder wearing and longer lasting.
There are also other options in light tones in laminated flooring, which not only imitates wood perfectly, but is more economical and looks very good in our houses or areas we want to decorate.
Another alternative, which never goes out of fashion, is darker-toned knotted wood, whose worn, rustic look and feel is rougher but very cosy and attractive. It is ideal for larger spaces and the best idea is to combine it with lighter shades and neutral colours to illuminate any room.
Caramel coloured wood is another timeless classic. We could go for a solid wood floor combined with the stability of a multilayer parquet style using oak. This would give an elegant and stately look to our floor and our home and combines perfectly with any type of furniture or accessory that we want to add.
Another growing trend for 2018 is oak wood flooring interlaced and mounted on a square shape. This rejuvenated classic will give your floor a very distinguished air and a distinctive and refined design.
The vintage and the rustic are trendy. For this reason, floors are adapting to this fashion and are becoming real works of art and with this type of flooring, spaces acquire unparalleled comfort and warmth. The best idea is to combine it with mosaics on the wall to take away the sobriety of the wood. The result is simply perfect.
Wood is a synonym of quality, comfort, warmth and beauty for our floors. Furthermore it is totally on trend, so if you are thinking of what flooring to put in your house, just go for it, wood is the ideal choice.
