Idaho is a state that has had a long history when it comes to flooring. This extremely important industry for this state is one of the leading ones in the United States, and it is no wonder that one of the best companies in this field, Brennan’s Carpet, is located here. And that is why have decided to look at the latest trends in hardwood flooring in this state, and see what it is they believe would be the biggest trend for the year 2016. To figure this out, we set out to Twin Falls, Idaho, where we hoped to get an answer to this question; and we did get it.
The first of the latest trends in hardwood flooring in Twin Falls was “the distressed flooring”. Many people don’t really know what this means, but it’s okay, since we didn’t really know it either. The “distressed” flooring is the flooring that is heavier hand scraped, or even contoured. However, even though this trend has been here a while, the latest one has everything to do with wire brushed ceruse. It seems that this trend is extremely popular in Idaho, as well as in the rest of the United States.
When it comes to wood, it looks that the oak is making a comeback, with the white one and the red one being extremely popular. Also, people seem to love hickory, as well as some of the paler types of wood, such as the birch and maple. The year 2016 wouldn’t be anything without some exotic wood, and that’s why we have bamboo and Brazilian cherry.
The 2016 has seen something new emerging, and that new thing seems to be – longer hardwood. We’re used to see the hardwood not being that long, but it would appear that this has started to change. Longer length hardwoods are the latest trend, and people love them because they have a more traditional feeling to them. The newer planks are sometimes even longer than 12 inches, but just make sure you place them in a big enough room; otherwise, they would just look as if they don’t belong there.
Everyone seems to be going “green” nowadays, and why should the hardwood flooring industry be any different. And this can be best seen on the hardwood finish. The finishes are now made of natural oils, and that seems to be the latest trend. People have realized that we have to protect our environment, and the hardwood flooring industry is doing it their own way.
If you’ve ever wondered about the latest trends and types of hardwood flooring in Idaho, than look no further, because you have been given all the answers. And if there is any state that knows how to deal with floors, it’s Idaho, and that is why we ought to listen to what they have to say. And just to make sure, we’ve also checked this out with the Shaw Flooring company, and they’ve confirmed everything we’ve heard in Twin Falls. So, yeah, now we can be sure that there really are the latest trends in hardwood flooring.
