Wood Flooring Trends Inspired by Nature
Interiors in 2017 are all about going back to basics, connecting ourselves with nature once again.
In a world that's so fast-paced, we as humans have an innate need to hold on to the natural, the organic. This is now being translated into interior design trends, with homes focusing on having a harmonious, natural and calm feeling. Having a natural wood floor at home is a big part of creating that feeling- because wood is a material that affects all senses.
According to Emanuel Lidberg, Creative Design Manager at Kährs in Sweden "a current trend in Scandinavia is big windows, covering a whole wall from floor to ceiling [in an effort to erase the lines between indoors and outdoors]. This means that the light falls in a way that can cause reflections on the floor, confusing our sense of colour. That is why we're seeing matte surfaces becoming a big trend in the near future."
Though investing in a high-quality natural wood flooring will most likely have a high initial price, it will surely cost you less over time. This is due to the fact that much like most high-end brands - more research has been done into the product, skillful manufacturing implemented and high-quality raw materials used. There is usually a valid reason for a wood floor's price. It generally takes a little bit of investigation into the brand to understand better. We also recommend you to look into other clients' experiences through testimonials or word-of-mouth as an additional background check into the supplier.
Wood floors provide a natural warmth and beauty to a home that very few other flooring materials can. Wood floors also add style to a home, are easy to care for and clean, comfortable to walk on and are non-allergenic and child-friendly.
One of the oldest wood manufacturers in the world is Kährs of Sweden. The 160-year history of Kährs is the story of a strong passion for nature and the environment; for wood as a material and for interior design, combined with innovative thinking and a commitment to the highest quality standards.
