Why Timber Flooring is Still a Fashionable ChoiceJuly 6, 2018
While you might be browsing through Pinterest flooring choices and drooling over polished concrete floors or marble stairways, there’s one type of flooring that will always be in fashion and a damn sight warmer for your house than both: timber. Even though timber flooring may evoke images of dark wooden, cold, creepy massive empty rooms in your parents or grandparent’s homes, there is so much to choose from in the timber spectrum that you’re sure to find something you like.
Timber flooring comes in a huge range of colours, grains, and sizes
Don’t like your parents ugly dark wide, wooden floorboards? Well you don’t have to get them! At the moment the timber that is in the homes of people in the know is full of light yellows and cool blonds. We also see chocolatey velvet smoothness with satin finishes butting up against white walls in shorter board lengths.
What’s interesting about 2016 is the patterns we’re seeing in floorboards – no longer straight up and down, but we’re seeing diagonals, geometrics, and even herringbone patterns. Patterns can be the key to making your timber flooring a more fashion forward choice.

The right timber never goes out of style
The right timber can be dressed up or dressed down, sanded, stained, or painted, so you never have to worry about it going out of fashion. Choose a thicker floorboard when getting a wooden floor to ensure that your floorboards are long lasting and can be refinished should you have a change of heart!
Talk with your timber flooring professional about how you need to treat your floorboards to keep them looking good whatever you decide to do to them.
In vogue rugs and throws keep your home at the height of fashion
A bare wooden floor can be off-putting for some people. But wooden floors weren’t meant to be all bare! Rooms should be warmed up and spiced up by using different rugs to mark out and complement living spaces. Interior decorating can be a little overwhelming for those who don’t feel like they’ve been blessed with the creative gene.
If you feel like you’re one of these people, then draw inspiration from others. Friends’ houses that you visit, notice what goes well together and what doesn’t. Browse through online look books to take a peek at what designers put together to make their interiors look good.
