Gray wood flooring a popular style choice
Wood flooring with a metallic tinge looks to be one of the top choices for home remodeling this season. Many famous interior designers have featured the stylish products in their projects, and the material has clearly been a staple in flooring exhibitions.
"Gray is the new floor color. We are doing silver metal bonded in to the grain of the wood and metals that look like rippling water," well-known designer Nicky Haslam told the London Evening Standard.
While hardwood flooring is among the best choices for homeowners hoping to improve the value of their houses, gray laminate floor coverings could also work for kitchens and bathrooms. Neutral colors have dominated the market for the past few years, as consumers like the flexibility of a darker color when decorating their homes.
When trying to sell this new trend in floor coverings, be sure to communicate the steady popularity of hardwood floors and their role in real estate pricing. If you're remodeling an entire kitchen, be sure to compare design options for cabinets and cooking surfaces so consumers can find the best combinations with their gray flooring.
According to the National Wood Flooring Association, wood floors are ecologically friendly, recyclable and come from renewable sources.
