Hardwood flooring is one of the most popular features homebuyers are looking for these days. This has resulted in a number of hardwood flooring knockoffs that are designed to look like hardwood flooring but isn’t hardwood flooring; these include tile, laminate, and so forth. Since most Denver homeowners prefer genuine hardwood floors, when you are updating your home, you might want to consider getting the real thing. But just because you opt for hardwoods doesn’t mean you have to go with the status quo.
There are some new designs and styles of hardwood floors that are trending this year. You can see some of these trends in our hardwood floor project gallery.
Read on for a discussion on some of the other popular hardwood flooring trends.
Darker Toned Hardwoods
In decades past, many people opted for lighter-colored hardwoods, but in recent years, darker stains have become popular. The darker tones might show crumbs, fur, and dust more readily, but with a small amount of extra maintenance, they can be a beautiful addition to your home.

Wire-Brushed and Textured Hardwoods
This type of hardwood is etched with a subtle detail to enhance the look of the wood. It gives wood a vintage look and makes it look worn in a spectacular way that appeals to many homeowners. It can be a great way to mask both wear and tear and normal dirt that builds up on floors.
Wider Planked Hardwoods
In the past, most hardwood floors were the standard 2.25-inch strips; this was popular for decades—from the 1930s to the 1990s. Today, most new hardwoods that are installed are a full inch wider. Unless you need to narrow planks to match the rest of your house, you can’t go wrong installing the wider planks.
Gray and Whitewashed Hardwoods
It can be tricky to refinish your hardwoods with a gray or whitewashed look, but this trend is continuing to grow in popularity. The key is to find the right contractor for the job—before you get started. Gray hardwoods offer a very different look to traditionally stained hardwoods, and it can add a rustic touch to your home that is highly unique.
