If you have decided to install hardwood flooring in your home, you have probably noticed the large selection of hardwood flooring and colours. In Ottawa Canada, we have local hardwood varieties such as oak and ash. However, we see more exotic woods, such as Olive from Italy, or Purpleheart from Columbia, becoming available and in demand. The next step is color selection once you've decided on the wood type.
All hardwood flooring comes in a wide selection of colours. Top flooring suppliers have a minimum of ten versions of oak, from natural, honey, red, light brown, dark brown, and black. Despite the hundreds of colour choices, some tones will better fit your home.
Brown: this is a highly versatile colour. You will find the most choice in this colour group from light to dark tones. Brown flooring is a good option when selecting a colour that will run throughout your home.
Brown is the #1 colour choice for hardwood flooring, something to consider if you plan on selling your home.
Natural: unstained hardwood; this flooring is a lower maintenance option. Natural hardwood flooring is a popular modern design trend. The most significant benefit of light natural colour floors is how it opens up your space, and dark natural hardwood flooring will benefit from less prominent blemishes.
Orange: a selection that many builders choose. Honey, butterscotch, caramel tone. These tones are most common with a natural red oak using oil based clear coat, that has been aged over decades.
Tan: an excellent option for a modern decor when using oak or walnut to provide additional texture in a family room or den. Think oversized leather couches, white marble, chrome fixtures.
White: selecting white flooring is a bold statement. White hardwood will highlight elements or spaces in your home to be showcased and focus the attention.
Gray: a neutral colour, gray hardwood floors have become wildly popular in the past decade. Will the colours success continue, or become old?
Red: another bold statement, not for everyone. In a music room or library with deep amber to add ambiance. Alternatively, high gloss red and with matching white accessories is a look for some.
Black: for dramatic and stylish, black delivers. Dark colours show traffic and wear more than natural or brown oak hardwood flooring.
