What Trends Are We Seeing in Hardwood Flooring?

Lately we have been seeing a surge in popularity of distressed, hand-scraped and wire-brushed floors. Did you know that scraping wood flooring planks has been around for hundreds of years? It creates a beautiful, warm and natural feel to any room. At Amazon Hardwood, we have one of the largest selections of hand-scraped solid hardwood, engineered and laminate flooring materials in the GTA.

Red Oak, White Oak and White Ash are always beautiful and have been the choice of builders and homeowners for years. Increasingly, though, people are looking for woods with less grain like Hard Maple and Birch.

They are also looking for modern colours, including darker hues of brown, charcoal and shades of grey. In our showrooms you will find hundreds of colours and styles to choose from in these species, as well as American Cherry, Black Walnut, and Hickory, which is the hardest Canadian wood you can buy.

Perhaps you’re looking for something different. Something exotic. We have just the right selection. From the rich presence of Jatoba (Brazilian Cherry) or Santos Mahogany to the stunning variation of Cumaru (Brazilian Teak) or Ipe (Brazilian Walnut), we have something special for you. Maybe you like the bold, deep look of Tigerwood or the timeless sincerity of Rosewood instead. These exotic woods have always been and continue to be an impressive addition to any home. You will find a great selection and great prices on these woods in all of our showrooms.

It is now more popular than ever to have hardwood floors in your kitchen, making a seamless flow throughout your home. Worried about dropping something on it? Exotics for their hardness and Handscrapes for their ability to hide marks are the choices that most make. Spilling is not an issue either as the mess can be wiped up without causing damage to the wood. Come in today to see what we can do to help you spice up your kitchen!
