Wood Flooring a Popular Trend Throughout House
Q. What type of wood flooring is popular and in what tone (dark, midtone, light)? I am looking to update my home.
A. Hardwood floors are a trend even for kitchen remodels. Lighter shades of wood are making a comeback — natural-colored woods such as ash, aspen, maple and elm.
Beyond shades of brown, the finished colors include whites, browns, blacks, grays and reds. The staining colors for unfinished flooring are endless, but resale should be a consideration. Attractive flooring is a top item a potential buyer is looking for, and wood flooring adds resale value.
