They Say Blondes Have More Fun

True, if you’re Marilyn Monroe!  But, it also may be true when it comes to trending floor styles!  Customers are moving away from the espresso wood and dark stains and towards blondes and whitewashes.  The dark floors have had their run and have been trailed closely by the greys but here come the blondies! Blonde hardwood has been making a comeback and for several good reasons…

1) A big draw-back of the dark floors is that you can see every little speck of dirt. But, with fresh, bright hues you see less of the light specks of dust.

2) Blonde wood, in particular, can give you that light feel, while still feeling timeless. As more homeowners embrace the light, open feel in their home, you will see a huge resurgence in light wood floors.

3) With blonde wood, your decorating possibilities are endless. You can go for a chic, contemporary feel or a rustic, homey vibe all without changing your floors.

4) Also,  dark wood floors can make your home seem smaller. Good news; blonde wood does the opposite! It’s true; blonde wood makes any room feel larger and more open, especially if you use large planks.  

For years, lighter floors were viewed as outdated or inexpensive. This is no longer the case. Trends always come back in style. Blonde hardwood was everywhere in the 80’s, and now we’re seeing it make its comeback.

Cheery Cherry

Cherry flooring will add richness and character to your rooms. It has a naturally beautiful tone, but also stains nicely. The darker hues of cherry wood floors can complement or contrast nicely with many styles of décor in your home.

Although cherry floors are slightly softer than a maple or oak floor, they are still suitable for a home. Cherry floors most often come in a smooth, polished surface, but there are plank width options. If you are looking for a medium to dark floor, consider cherry flooring for its beauty and quality.

A New Lease on Life

In our showroom, which is an antique colonial in historic Kent, CT, we began some restorations projects and this one gave us a nice surprise!

When we decided to restore the kitchen flooring we knew there was some original Douglas-fir wood flooring underneath that we were sure was at least 95 years old. After pulling up the old vinyl floor and sanding off the glue and some water stains – this was the result!

A beautiful, “looks-like-new” wood floor.

So, as you can see, wood flooring truly is a lifetime investment in your home. With some sanding and a fresh coat of poly we had our old floor looking like a Spring Chicken! The minor damage was easily fixed and proves that wood flooring will last a very long time! Whether you’re building a new home, or upgrading some rooms in your existing home- consider wood flooring.

In addition to its longevity, wood definitely increases the value of your home, offers a much healthy alternative to rugs and can be easier to maintain if you have children, pets and a busy lifestyle.

Give us a call and we will get you on the right track to finding the perfect wood floor for your lifestyle.
