Learn more about the key trends the world of design and hardwood flooring is focused on: 

Matte Gains Traction 

The allure of matte finishes on hardwood floors is capturing the hearts of interior design lovers and homeowners. Matte surfaces offer a contemporary and sophisticated appeal while providing a subtle, low-sheen look that complements various decor styles. This trend showcases a shift towards understated elegance and minimalism in flooring choices. This trend includes not only house and office projects but boat design interiors as well. One popular choice is engineered hardwood floors, once their technology offers the beauty of wood combined with easy maintenance and moisture barrier. 

Wider Planks 

Say goodbye to narrow floorboards as wider planks dominate the hardwood flooring scene this year. Wider planks, from 10” to 14”, create a sense of expansiveness and visual continuity, especially in open floor plans. This trend adds a touch of luxury and modernity to spaces, enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal of interiors. 

Wider planks dominate the hardwood flooring scene this year.

Democratic Taste 

Rustic or Modern? Both! Wood, as a biophilic element, is very welcomed in any space, creating a cozy and natural vibe. For that reason, rustic and modern hardwood flooring styles are options to consider when creating an interior design project. Whether you prefer the warmth and character of rustic hardwood with knots or the clean lines of modern designs, the design world is democratic and celebrates the diversity of tastes. Feel encouraged to create eclectic combinations that reflect your individual personality and design wishes.

From reclaimed wood options to FSC-certified products, homeowners are prioritizing sustainability without compromising on style or quality. For example, RIVA Spain, a high-end engineered hardwood floor manufacturer, partners with One Tree Planted to plant three trees for every one harvested, demonstrating their commitment to reforestation.

FIREWOOD

The upper section of the tree is used for firewood, which may not be suitable for flooring due to higher branch density and smaller trunk size.

CHARACTER

Our character grade comes from the middle part of the tree. This part has a visual appeal and some knots but avoids the large holes of the top part. We refer to our character grade as “light character”.

SELECT

Our select grade comes from the bottom part of the tree and is the youngest wood, which results in the absence of knots and a sleek appearance.
