Hardwood Floor Colors and Trends in 2024

When it comes to hardwood floor colors, I think we can all agree that there are way too many options. Picking the right color is the most important next step after you've decided you want hardwood in your home. In this post, we will review the top trending colors for 2024, and we will detail a few different products for you to choose from. 

We will break down all the different options available on the market today, and then we will help you narrow down the perfect selection for your home. 

Brown Hardwood Floors

This category of products redefines the definition of timeless elegance. There is a universal appeal of brown hardwood floors, especially the darker colors because they match with essentially all home decor. Whether you are going for a southern coastal look or modern farmhouse, brown hardwood floors are always the easy choice.

We know there are many other color options out there, but for the last 8 years running, brown has been the color to choose when it comes to hardwood flooring and we don't see this changing in 2024. 

Natural Hardwood Floors

Natural looking floors have been one of the fastest growing color categories in 2023, and will remain a popular floor color heading into 2024. Natural hardwood floors provide a subtle hint of color to your home, while putting most of the attention on your wall paint and decor. These floors go perfect with really any room, but we suggest putting this in main living areas where the walls are white. This will bring contrast nicely with the grain of the wood and give you multiple options in how you decorate.

Light and White Washed Hardwood Flooring

If you really want to go for that modern coastal vibe, light or even white washed hardwood floors are the color for you. Light colored floors are extremely popular in the South, and many new homes that feature a souther farmhouse looking are opting for more white washed colors rather than traditionally darker tones. 

Red Oak Hardwood Flooring

Red-toned wood flooring is not for the faint of heart. It is exceptionally striking and creates a memorable impact that often dominates the room's color and design. This tone brings a distinct color and feel to the room and is most often used for homes trying to design a more rustic feel. This hardwood floor color has been decreasing in popularity over the last several years, but as we know old is new again, so it could make an appearance as one of the most popular colors in 2024. 

In Summary

There are a lot of different ways you can go when picking the perfect hardwood floor colors. The right floor will make you feel at home, whereas the wrong color will completely change the room and interior design of your entire home. Remember that wood flooring is not LVP flooring, it is made from natural wood and sometimes that comes with some color imperfections. 

If real wood ends up not being for you, we would recommend looking into LVP or Laminate flooring. They will not have the same texture as wood flooring, but because both of these types of flooring have printed colors on top of a veneer, the color options are endless.
