Hardwood floors are always a great long-term investment for your home, along with being durable and beautiful. They are all trendy and if you invest in a higher-quality flooring in, it can last you a lifetime! If you’re looking to renovate your floors, or new floors for a construction project, then consider these hardwood flooring trends to increase value to your home and give it a fantastic look.

Distressed Wood

In 2020 the trend for hardwood flooring is leaning towards the distressed look. The worn and weathered aesthetic of this type of flooring can really give a room a wonderful vintage look! The usual techniques for producing this kind of wood include wire-brushing, saw marks, and lye treatment. As the wood will hide the damage overtime, what you are left with is an authentically-aged looking hardwood floor. 

Earthy Tones

If you’re looking for a classic and timeless look, then floors with earthy tones are definitely worth some consideration! We’re seeing this as one of the popular choices of hardwood floors amongst our customers. These floors can come with enhanced color treatments and it truly makes such a stunning difference. Most techniques consist of adding whitewash treatments to wood grains that already have that natural earthy tone. The process introduces more neutral colors into the wood while enhancing the overall appearance. 

Wide Planks

Over the years, we’ve seen an increase in customers wanting wider planks for their floors.  The final look you can get from wide plank flooring can really give your room a feeling of grandeur. This is a trend we think will only help increase the value in people’s homes as it gives just such a great look!


We are glad to see and partner with many more manufacturers that are adopting eco-friendly options for creating their flooring products. Natural sealants are being used more often than the traditional polyurethane you would usually see. Eco-friendly hardwoods will still bring the same amazing look and value to your home that any other flooring would. It’s just better for the environment and your family, which is a trend I think we can all get behind.
