A beautifully constructed modern interior is certainly a pleasure to behold. One imagines elegant aesthetics, clean lines, and a feeling of calm and composure. Playing with modern interior elements over an alabaster backdrop allows us to truly highlight beautiful design, from fantastic uses of space with stunning feature pieces to innovative lighting solutions.
As current rising trends indicate, white wood flooring is a perfect vehicle to elevate all of these ingredients, creating cultivated and serene spaces that are both striking and dignified, and a pleasure to be in!
Assessing The Trend
White wood flooring has certainly evolved since it's debut as a popular choice some thirty years ago. What began as a simple trend, geared towards beachy white-washes and gloss finishes, has gradually been refined into a far more sophisticated array of design options. For the perfect modern look, we now see preferential favour given to more satin and matte finishes, with a broad array of methods used to elevate the beautiful textures that only wood can provide.
Depending on the space in question, designers can opt for a wide plank, contributing further to the impression of space created by white wooden flooring, or a more delicate appearance through narrow planks or an opulent parquet finish. A minimal, barely-textured solid white appearance can create a very crisp aesthetic with a fine natural undertone, while a more characterful opaque finish that highlights the organic grain and knots within the wood creates interest, revealing more of the wood's beautiful organic form.
When opting for white hardwood flooring, the choice of wood species is a paramount consideration that makes expert advice an important tool. Less colour-saturated woods such as oak, ash, maple or birch offer a perfect canvas for white, with oak a firm favourite within the current trend for white hardwood flooring. Other woods such as cherry or pine can offer surprising undertones of pink or orange that are certainly unique but may not provide the desired effect. With this in mind, working with specialists will allow you to develop an ideal pairing for your vision.
Accentuating Light And Lines
Whether searching for means to increase the sense of space in smaller rooms, or introduce a feeling of openness to larger living areas, white wooden flooring creates an impression of expansiveness that is certain to assist you in brightening any interior. When paired with lighter wall colours, white flooring can create a sense of weightlessness, and such combinations offer a soft, gentle light which is both tranquil and uplifting.
White wooden flooring also creates a spectacular backdrop for stunning design, accentuating the lines of feature furniture pieces, and modern kitchen or bathroom installations. Whether you opt for minimalist pieces or a more eclectic selection of beautifully crafted furniture, the bright and uplifting backdrop created by white wooden flooring will allow each object to shine.
Opting For Exceptional Quality
It might be easy to imagine that a white floor would offer a challenge in terms of maintenance, but this notion is misleading. The key, in this case, is ensuring a high quality that will offer a stunning and durable finish for years to come. Once quality is assured, while of course muddy foot prints will be clear to see on a white floor, paler floor colours are far easier to gage when it comes to keeping them clean and excellent quality will ensure that cleaning and maintenance are easy tasks.
If selecting white hardwood flooring, one can consider that solid wood offers the flexibility of sanding and refinishing in the future, although a top grade of production for white finishes will certainly mark such a requirement as a most distant necessity, if at all. Should your design inclinations change in the future, hardwood is an excellent choice.
Engineered wooden flooring offers certain advantages, depending on the design requirements in creation, such as greater resistance to moisture and temperature changes, greater choice in width and length of planks, and compatibility with underfloor heating systems. Finely constructed tongue and groove white wooden flooring will create a seamless surface from which to compose a stunning modern interior.
