Let’s face it–from wood types to colors to patterns to finishes, wood flooring offers a nearly unlimited set of options from which to choose. But just as we see changing styles in tastes in fashion and interior design, we also notice changing trends as to what’s popular in hardwood floors. Sometimes these trends involve new designs and colors, while other times a traditional style will find renewed popularity. As we kick off the new year, we’re noticing three particular wood flooring trends that stand out from the rest. These are based both on what’s happening in the market and the requests we’re getting in our own offices. If you’re planning a wood flooring update in your home this year, you’ll want to pay attention to the following top trends for 2023.

Herringbone Wood Floors

While herringbone patterns have been around for ages, it’s safe to say herringbone is coming back in a big way. Its characteristic zigzag pattern adds a visual interest that makes the space feel more inviting and luxurious. Not only is herringbone wood flooring stylish, but it also has a timeless feel, making it an ideal choice for those looking to add an element of lasting beauty to their home. (Herringbone is currently one of our most requested flooring styles.)

Unstained Wood Floors

Another popular trend–and one that we’ve discussed recently–is to install and finish hardwood floors without any stain, opting to keep the “natural look.” This trend fits in well with the current move toward wellness and “bringing the outdoors indoors” because of its rustic, unspoiled look. The natural tones of unstained wood can fit in many decors, creating a modern yet cozy feel.

Bleached Wood Floors

Bleached wood floors are becoming increasingly popular for those looking to add a light, airy feel to their home. This trend involves the use of a special bleaching process that removes some of the natural color from the wood, resulting in a unique and distinctive look. Bleached wood flooring can be used anywhere from living rooms to bedrooms and kitchens, creating an inviting atmosphere with its soft tones and subtle texture. It’s also a great design option for lightening up dark spaces or amplifying natural light. Its versatility makes it easy to mix and match with other types of flooring or incorporate into existing décor styles like modern farmhouse or coastal chic.
