Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood flooring trends

With its medium brown shades and standard-sized boards, a traditional hardwood floor never goes out of style. But today, many homeowners prefer more contemporary wood flooring to complement their decorating style. Further, engineered wood, with its moisture-proof plywood base and floating floor design, is commonly chosen instead of solid hardwood flooring. You can find the floor covering that is just right for your home at Urban Floors. We boast three locations in Metro Detroit, Michigan: Walled Lake, Sylvan Lake, and Plymouth.


Light-colored and dark-colored hardwood flooring is trendy. Blonde and slightly darker honey wood floors are two light colors that open up a room and appear more prominent. Whitewashed wood is aesthetically pleasing, while natural wood, covered only by a clear sealer, is highlighted by the wood grain. In contrast, dark walnut and coffee browns and even darker shades like charcoal and black offer a sophisticated look.

Wood species and board size

Oak has been the most popular wood species for many years, and that popularity shows no signs of waning. White and red oak is native to the United States, and both species come in many different shades. Maple, hickory, and bamboo flooring are also in demand. In general, the trendiest hardwood planks are wider and longer than planks produced in previous years. The large and extra-large plank trend is likely here to stay.
