Hardwood flooring 101: Color choices

Hardwood flooring 101: Color choices

Whether your choice is solid or engineered hardwood flooring, there will undoubtedly be an abundance of hues. They come in all shades, including light, medium and dark.

Let’s take a deep dive into some of the most popular colors.

Gray: the “new neutral”

Gray hardwood flooring has now become one of the hottest trends. It's chic, trendy, cool, and contemporary. 

Gray floors work in any decor, from contemporary to urban chic, modern, and California coastal. Designers love it because it is a neutral backdrop for bright, bold hues. 

Greige: A new take on gray

Greige combines gray, beige, and a little brown. This wood flooring combines the minimalism of gray with the depth of beige and brown.

It's a unique color that works well in any room. It can give a fresh look to the bedroom or add a touch of luxury to the living room. It's also a good color choice for resale.

Light woods: easy to coordinate

These go with just about anything. Homeowners love them, too, because they hide dust, light dirt, and scratches.

That's not to say, however, that dark floors are out. On the contrary, they're getting even darker. Dark floors add sophistication, drama, and stunning contrast.

High variation: design statement with color

Your hardwood floors in Cookeville, TN, will include light and dark shades or multiple hues. There's high color variation between and within the planks. The floors will become a statement piece with dimension and beauty in a design that's modern and traditional all at once.

Honey/copper: for the person who’s not ready to go all-in

All in, that is, on light hardwood floors. These are light enough to be blond but add a touch of warmth with copper.
