Wide plank hardwood trend takes over
A new American flooring trend could become an international style favourite, judging by the positive reaction in the U.S.
The big trends for 2012 are likely to involve colour and more sustainable flooring choices, but there is a new fashion for the particular style of floor.
Although parquet floors were big for a few years the new trend is for wide plank hardwood floors, which creates a totally different look to slimmer planks.
The wider floorboards offer a more natural appearance and have a much clearer style across the floor, which also makes rooms look bigger.
The natural look is complimented by a brushed finish, which removes the newest growth marks and leaves the natural beauty of the timber.
This results in a truly authentic looking wooden floor which will be an investment for the home for many years to come.
