LIGHTER WOOD FLOORS
All those glossy dark floors that used to be so popular? “We’re seeing light floor colors like brushed hickory or brushed oak,” says Matt Miner, a Coldwell Banker Bain broker and principal of Get Happy at Home in Seattle.
“You’ll also notice that wood floors often have a silver wash in them these days.” Alexander Boriskin of Douglas Elliman Real Estate in New York City says wider planks have also gained popularity. “It’s a trend because people love the illusion it gives of a wider space.”
