It still feels like the beginning of the year but here we are in mid-December 2021 – with 2022 just around the corner.
Collectively, we’ve all spent a lot more time at home since early 2020. With online learning, working from home and limited socializing, we’ve all had ample opportunity to see areas of our homes we’d like to change.
Whether you’re moving house, renovating, or building a new home. – choosing the right floor for your space is important. Great quality flooring is an investment that will likely increase the value of your property. Flooring is the backdrop to our lives; quite literally supporting us, adding to the ambiance, and yet versatile enough to complement any décor.
Natural materials are top of the list. Connecting with nature is a way for people to feel more grounded and has been shown to improve psychological well-being, health, and cognitive function. Bringing natural materials indoors into your living areas and workspaces – including flooring, furniture, and accessories – serves to facilitate a sense of peace and connection with nature … even if it’s difficult to spend a lot of time outdoors.
Flooring colours are trending to light and white hardwood as they tend to make spaces look bigger and brighter. Light coloured floors are also easier to keep clean as they don’t show as much dust. Blond flooring has a timeless appeal and can be rustic, homey, or chic, depending on your décor.
In addition to light flooring, cool tones are also on trend. Cool grey flooring adds a level of sophistication and panache to every room.
Patterned floors have been working their way back into fashion. Choose from a Herringbone or Chevron pattern or install multi-width planks of varying lengths to make your space one-of-a kind. Six of the 35 flooring styles in our Heritage Collection offer planks in multiple widths and lengths including: (Bordeaux, Cordoba Evora, Segovia, Strasbourg, and Tarragona.
Highly textured engineered hardwood flooring is very much in style. Hand-scraped, wire-brushed, and distressed planks create floors with variegated colours and patterns – looking both expensive whilst adding character.
Overall, consumers are looking for flooring – most products in general – that reflect their values, respect and honour the environment, and bring beauty into their homes and work spaces.
Add to that the relative ease of taking care of engineered hardwood flooring, increasing the value of their properties and decorating a space that is both eco-friendly and allergy-friendly … you can’t go wrong with timber flooring.
As you might have guessed – and it’s no secret – we are somewhat biased when it comes to flooring … and with good reason. We work hard to ensure our engineered hardwood floors are of exceptional quality.
We use only legally sourced and harvested timber from sustainably managed forests – and feature Western European Oak, Ash, American Pecan and Tasmanian Oak, among others. With a foundation layer consisting of a medium-density hardwood and our scientifically developed core technology featuring Hevea Brasiliensis for enhanced stability and longevity, our floors are built to last.
At Forestry Timber, we are proud of the floors we produce and are confident that you will be happy with your purchase both now and for decades to come.
