Hardwood flooring in Woodstock, GA from Cherokee Floor Covering

Are specific hardwood flooring colors more popular than others?

Everyone has their style, especially regarding their home's interior design plan. Light colors and cool tones are trendy but choosing the right hardwood color is highly individualized. The color you select must work for you, not anyone else.

When shopping for hardwood flooring in Woodstock (or the Greater Atlanta region), be sure to come into Cherokee Floor Covering. We have an extensive inventory from top manufacturers like Mohawk, Palmetto Road, Quick-Step, and Somerset.

Select what you love, not just because it’s trendy

Right now, popular wood colors are blond, honey/copper, whitewashed and greige, but you'll never go wrong with a classic neutral color palette or a white oak floor. (White oak is light brown, not white, but you can permanently stain it lighter or darker.) Some designers say gray is on the way out, but many people still prefer it, especially when they have farmhouse-style decor.

The bottom line is to select what works for you and your overall style. Remember that hardwood floors can always be sanded and stained another color when it’s time for a change.

Look at your lifestyle

That has an impact on the colors you choose. First, think about your home's overall decor, so the colors and patterns harmonize to form one cohesive look. For example, a light floor works with almost anything, but dark floors are sophisticated and dramatic, especially when combined with bold, contrasting colors.

Light floors hide dust, scratches, and scuffs better, the latter possibly being an issue if you have kids, but dark floors hide dirt. Do you have pets? Fur color can be highlighted or hidden by your choice.
