Should I do modern colors for my floors?

  • What is the best color for my hardwood floors?
  • Should I choose dark or light colors?
  • Should I stain or leave my floors natural?
Industry trends are frequently changing. At this  time black and gray floors are in style. A few years ago  white stains and a  popular Ebony and Jacobean mix were all the rave. Soon the trend will shift again, so it is important to select a color that you love and provides a nice contrast between the color of your walls and trims. Eagle Hardwood Flooring recommends picking a color that is complimentary on either lighter or darker than your walls and trims. We recommend a satin finish over high gloss and semi-gloss as satin finish  has been very popular. Satin finish reveals fewer scratches and the wear and tear is less obvious. For a classic look, we advise choosing a traditional color such as natural color (clear) oil or water-based finish.
  • Light, Medium and Dark Brown stains will always be in style.
  • Such as Golden Oak, Early American, Provincial and Dark Walnut.
If your are unsure about your preferred style and what type of floors you desire, check out d├ęcor, websites and magazines. 
  • When browsing, focus on pictures that have similar furniture and wall colors to your own home.
  • Consulting with and interior designer may also be a great place to start.
