FLOORING TRENDS


For 2017, local wood reclamation, whether that wood is being salvaged from old barns or rescued from underneath old and outdated carpeting, is going to be popular across the country. There is a continued desire for wider and longer hardwood planks, and also a more informal layout using different width planks.  Wider planks have the advantage of creating a more unified look – with fewer joint lines – which also highlights the inherent aesthetic of the wood, that is to say the knots and grain. Because texture is going to be important this year, we are expecting to see increased popularity for hardwoods that have distinct handcrafted finishes, such as hand scrapped and wire-brushed finishes. Whilst gray tones are still going to be hugely popular, we might also see a growing return back to more natural and dark wood tones.  And one key trend that is certain to hit consumers in 2017 is herringbone and chevron parquet designs, which are being heavily, featured on trend-setting home décor and renovation shows.

HARDWOOD FLOOR FINISHING

We have always dedicated our industry to blend into many facets of the construction field. Our main focus is residential flooring but along the way we have developed a niche market for commercial, condo/high rise flooring and tapped into minor institutional venues. We are not limited to the scale of any project—i.e. store fronts, name brand stores in a mall settings and multi-use condo applications.
We are always striving to create an atmosphere and a presence that defines who we are and our capabilities. No task is too small or too large. We tailor ourselves to meet a diversified need from city to city, town to town,  province to province and country to country.

INTERIOR DESIGN

From a design perspective, hardwood flooring offers many influences to the marketplace. It’s liveable, low maintenance that allows mixable design sensibilities that are affordable and attainable for any demographic group and style. Today it’s not difficult not to find hardwood floors that can stand-alone or pair easily with either soft or hard surfaces in order to create a gorgeous interior instantly.
