Hardwood Flooring Style Guide

If you are looking to install new flooring in your home, then hardwood flooring makes a great choice – one that has become increasingly popular in recent years. Hardwood flooring offers you a quality and luxury feel in your home that if looked after properly will really stand the test of time. If you are looking for wooden flooring in Surrey then why not get in touch and see what we have to offer.

Here we take a look at some of the most recent styles and trends that are emerging in the world of hardwood flooring.


When it comes to popular colours of hardwood flooring recent trends vary from the palest greys to the darkest browns. Very dark woods such as walnut or even Jarrah are incredibly popular and when paired with the right interior décor can produce some really dramatic effects in your home. Light woods, such as Ash, however, are also very popular at the moment, especially in more modern homes where they can help to create the illusion of space.

In the middle of both of these colours are those hardwood floors which show a high variation in their colours. These are proving to be a very popular choice with many homeowners and can add real character to any home. The takeaway from all this is that no matter how trend orientated you are, when it comes to your flooring, you should choose a colour based on the interior décor of your home rather than what’s popular at the moment, as hardwood flooring will last for decades, and only time will tell what will be fashionable 10 or 20 years from now. 

Styles of Flooring

Once very much the type of flooring that you would expect to see in an older style property, parquet style flooring has suddenly seen a real rise in popularity. This style of flooring is very much on-trend at the moment and looks like it is set to remain at the top of everyone’s wish list. It adds a really special look to any room and, surprisingly, can be paired really well with a variety of different styles of décor from the more traditional to the modern.


Whilst many of the hardwood flooring options that are available on the market offer boards that are rather smooth, those that offer a little bit of texture are proving to be very popular. People are looking for wooden flooring that offers then something really natural. The distressed look which offers some real contrasts in both colour and texture is a popular style. Woods that display natural features such as knots and cracks are also in at the moment and again as people try to make some connections with nature look set to stay, at least for a while.
