For the past several years, one of the most popular decor styles has been the farmhouse look. You can see it everywhere from the HGTV renovation shows to the home goods aisle in department stores. Everyone seems to love the farmhouse trend, and if you are trying to makeover your current home with the farmhouse style you may be considering new flooring.
It is unlikely that you are going to peel up that carpet that has been on the floors since the 1980s and find reclaimed wood floor underneath. Which means you will need to consider installing new floors to complete your decor renovations. But what type of flooring will best suit your new style?
This list of flooring options will help you decide which of the farmhouse styles will go best in the individual rooms in your house.
For a very traditional farmhouse look, a pine floor with a honey-brown stain can’t be beat. It pairs perfectly with all of the common colors used in the farmhouse decor, and it gives the home a very warm and welcoming feeling.
Another hardwood option that is a little more formal is a hickory floor with a darker espresso finish. This looks especially nice with crisp white walls and lots of decorative trim. This darker shade brown is great for dining rooms, living rooms, and dens.
For those that want something even more rustic, a maple floor that has been heavily scraped is a good option. This type of flooring gives a very rustic feeling to the home, and it can look more vintage or reclaimed. This look works really well with planks that are different sizes.
Hardwood flooring may not be in the budget when you are making over an entire house, but there is no need to forego the flooring when laminate is such a solid option. The durability of the laminate flooring may even be a better choice for families with small children or large pets.
There are reclaimed options that look very much like actual hardwood in a building that has been lived in for centuries. Choosing a laminate with a matte finish adds to the vintage look of the flooring.
Another good color option is a whitewashed laminate because it pairs so nicely with the neutrals and pastels popular in the farmhouse style. Choosing a larger plank size will add to the overall design. If you like the lighter flooring colors, the gray driftwood color is also a good match for the farmhouse style. These lighter colors work very well in smaller spaces like bathrooms.
