MODERN WOOD FLOOR TRENDS
SALEM, NJ, October 3, 2017—In response to the trend of light, fresh interiors, Mannington Mills, one of the world’s leading flooring manufacturers, has designed a wide assortment of wood and wood-look floors that are all about a clean and modern aesthetic 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 hardwood 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:
