In response to the trend of light, fresh interiors, new wood floor looks are all about a clean and modern aesthetic. These are floors that deliver the warmth and beauty of wood with durability that works for how families live today.
“Gray continues to top the color charts but is moving to a little bit of a warmer tone by mixing it with beige for a color called ‘greige.’ Very low gloss levels and lighter wood colors are popular, especially those that mix white washes with beige,” says Joe Amato, Mannington Vice President of Residential Styling. “And white oak is the hot species. Its graining is refined and the wood’s base colors are neutral.”
A cool Nordic look that’s uncomplicated and simple (yet sophisticated), Mannington’s Norwegian Oak is lightly washed and wire-brushed to subtly reflect the character of the wood, then dual-stained in a matte finish for a calm, restful feel. 6” wide planks, sawn in random lengths, create interest and draw the eye across the floor. And with Mannington’s patented ScratchResist™ performance coating, this hardwood floor has exceptional resistance to everyday household scratches to keep it looking newer longer.
For rooms where a wood-look floor is a better option than real hardwood, innovative design and modern technology make it easier than ever to get the look with authenticity but without the worry.
Mannington’s Nantucket laminate is shabby chic reborn with contemporary flair. 8” wide planks in softly washed colors highlight the character of weathered wood found along sea shores in realistic ways. Mannington’s SpillShield™ technology takes the worry out of everyday mishaps and protects floors from splashes and spills for 72 hours, by preventing moisture from penetrating the floor.
In an on-trend palette of gray mixed with mid-brown tones and a hint of beige, Chaumont luxury vinyl sheet flooring is a remarkably realistic oak look that captures the essence of iconic French chateaus in modern style. The 8” wide planks are crafted with a unique wire-brushing technique that enhances the fine grain and natural under glow of the wood. Mannington’s ScratchResist™ performance coating helps keep the floor looking newer longer by providing exceptional resistance to everyday household scratches.
A chic European oak look, Adura® Max Aspen is crafted with a unique fuming process that accentuates the natural cracks, unique knots and fine graining found in real wood. Featuring Mannington’s innovative HydroLoc™ waterproof core and patented ScratchResist™ with aluminum oxide surface protection, this 7” wide luxury vinyl plank floor is up to the task for even the most challenging room in the house.
Wood floors remain one of the most desired features in homes today (85% of buyers want them, according to the National Association of Home Builders 2017 Home Trends Survey). Floors like these deliver what homeowners want in a fresh, modern way.
