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For years, lighter floors were viewed as outdated or inexpensive.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.
