Top Hardwood Floor Color Trends for 2020

A new year usually comes with an entirely new list of to-dos, goals, and resolutions. For many of us, that includes revamping or making improvements to our homes. If 2020 is finally your year to install or revive your hardwood floors, we’ve got you covered. 

When it comes to choosing the perfect hardwood floor for your home, there are a number of factors to consider, like style, tones, and textures. But one of the most important decisions for your hardwood floor typically comes down to a single feature: color. While it may look like an overwhelming task to take on, we’re here to help you see things a little more clearly with this year’s top hardwood floor color trends. 

Top Bespoke Colors 

The most popular color trends this year can only be created with pretreatments and pigmented oils for a unique look you won’t find anywhere else. Some other benefits to customizing a hardwood floor with a pretreatment include:  

  • Richer color
  • Contrasting colors
  • A patina-like texture
  • A two-dimensional effect

Here are some of our favorite pretreatment hardwood color trends for 2020.

Pre-color White + Diamond Oil Active Extra White

If you want to add brightness to your home, a white, pre-colored hardwood floor with our WOCA Oil Active in Extra White is the way to go. The durable wood finish adds subtle texture while maintaining its original color. 

Wood Lye White + Diamond Oil Active White

A wood lye white hardwood floor is a great option if you’re not quite ready to commit to (or clean) an all-white floor. When treated with our Active White Diamond Oil, you can bring out contrasting colors while achieving a slight two-dimensional effect. 

Wood Lye Grey + Diamond Oil Active Concrete Grey

One of the top hardwood color trends this year is wood lye gray. Paired with our Concrete Grey Diamond Oil Active, you can stray from more traditional-colored hardwood floors and go for unique ashy tones that will be sure to stand out in any room in your home.

Top Standalone Colors 

If a pretreated hardwood floor isn’t quite your style, there are also standalone color trends that are quite eye-catching. Whether you’re opting for a matte, low-sheen, or satin finish, there are several color options to take your hardwood floors to the next level

Diamond Oil Active Sand Grey

If you’re having a tough time deciding between a light or dark hardwood floor finish, sand gray is a great neutral color option. It’s light enough to liven up your home, yet maintains a rich tone that closely emulates natural wood.

Diamond Oil Active Chocolate Brown
