The New Neutral—Gray Tones

Gray continues to remain at the top of the list for flooring design trends in 2015. Whether it is for cabinets, walls, fixtures or flooring, it’s no surprise that gray is in! It’s a great neutral that can provide a cooler, but still neutral alternative to typically warm stains. Gray tones are universal, providing a stylish and modern look that works well in many décor styles. No matter what gray tone you choose, the use of gray flooring can give your home a fresh, new look that is both sensible and timeless.


Distressed, Reclaimed Wood-Looks

It seems everything old is new again! Color isn’t the only trend to consider when updating your flooring. Today, the distressed and reclaimed wood look is trending for laminate flooring—there’s an undeniable, enduring beauty to reclaimed wood. Think of floors that are typically found in an old barn or former urban warehouse then make them new again. The distressed, reclaimed wood look of laminate Flooring offers beautiful textures and dramatic depth of colors, including hand-scraped and wire-brushed styles.

The advanced technology of Laminate can mimic he look of distressed, reclaimed wood—many people might have a hard time telling the difference between real barn wood and laminate! Layers are fused together during a lamination process of heat and pressure, to give a highly realistic look of distressed, reclaimed wood-looks of laminate flooring. Hand scraped laminate flooring is made with a texture that resembles the natural look and appeal of worn hardwood flooring. Its rustic and bold, yet timeless look simulates the impeccable workmanship of century-old finishing techniques.
