The demand for wood floors and the faux wood look will be an ongoing trend in the kitchen industry in the coming year. With the continued emphasis on open floor plans that unite kitchen, dining and living rooms, wood floors gives a seamless transition from room to room and give a sense of a larger space. Let’s look at what’s trending under our feet in our favorite room in the home. The kitchen!
WIDE PLANK WOOD FLOORING :
I expect to see a continued interest in wider and longer hardwood floors as well as the use of mixed widths and color variation in planking. This look is reminiscent of reclaimed, antique wood and a very popular style. This rustic look is a stunning backdrop to the ever popular white kitchens. Wider planks have the advantage of creating a more unified look with fewer joint lines while showcasing the beauty of the wood floor.
WOOD AND TILE DESIGNS :
Mixing wood with tile is a beautiful design statement.Creating your own distinctive pattern adds interest and individuality to your home. Joanna Gains has successfully done this in many of her farmhouse designs.
Creating a design on your floor with wood is a beautiful way to add an interesting design feature to your home. With the emphasis on open floor plans which unite the kitchen, dining and living areas, the demand for wood floors throughout the home has not slowed down. This makes for a stunning seamless transition from room to room.
