2018 Wood Floor Layout & Pattern Trends In 2018.


It’s no surprise that patterned floors are still a huge hit. Unfortunately, when people hear the word “pattern” or the dreaded “parquet” (which, BTW, just means pattern), they imagine the horribly out of date 1970’s parquet wood floors. Don’t worry; the updated parquet looks are anything but dated. You’ll see sleek, upscale, modern patterns Herringbone Wood Floors.

First, let me clear up a little misconception. Chevron and herringbone are very similar, but each has their own distinction. Chevron floors require the wood planks to be angled and come together to a point, making them more expensive to manufacture and install. Herringbone achieves a similar look by connecting two planks at a 90-degree angle as seen below.

Herringbone is much more accessible than chevron, making it the more popular option. Longer herringbone patterns are going to be super hot over the next year, especially among young homeowners. Will the herringbone wood trend last in 2019 and beyond? This trend isn’t likely to last forever, but it sure looks pretty while it’s here. Diagonal / Angled Wood Floors

My favorite. Laying your wood flooring diagonally instantly modernizes your home, making it look chic and expensive. The downside to doing diagonal wood floors is they do cost a bit more in both materials and labor. However, I think, if you can afford it, it’s worth the splurge and you’ll end up happy you did it. In fact, the above picture is from a friend’s house who installed these floors almost 5 years ago. He is still thrilled with his decision and gets compliments on it all the time.

Will the diagonal wood trend last in 2019 and beyond? Can it still be a trend if it’s uncommon? I think so. Yes, expect to see these angled wood floors every once in awhile for decades to come. The rareness, in my opinion, means this trend won’t quickly grow old like others – I expect it to have a longer shelf life.

Wide Plank Wood Floors

This is one trend you can expect to see every year in every style for the foreseeable future. Longer, wider planks make your room look larger, more open and less busy. Soon, short, thin planks will be seen as outdated. In fact, I would venture to guess that going with smaller planks could significantly reduce your home’s resale value. And also, they just won’t look as good. Now, I do think we’ll get to a point where enough is enough already and we will stay at these new traditional sizes so don’t go buying one plank of wood for your entire hallway. That would look weird. But we definitely recommend getting on board with the large plank trend! Will the wide plank wood trend last in 2019 and beyond? Manufacturers are only trending towards even wider and longer planks;This trend will soon become a classic staple and will likely last the test of time.
