Natural Graining and Distressed Wood-look Flooring

When it comes to the natural beauty of wood, there’s no mistaking that it’s been around for many years. In fact, the timeless look of wood is one trend that shows no signs of slowing, with even more natural grained and distressed floors expected to be popular in 2021. Styles range from modern to traditional and can be easily dressed up or down, depending on the home’s interior design.

What do we mean by natural wood graining and distressing? We’re talking about flooring styles that show off the raw beauty of wood or wood-looks, with visible wood graining, mineral streaks, and light stains. This flooring (pictured above) is just one stunning example of wood flooring that demonstrates just how beautiful it is with its subtle natural graining and color. It’s a perfect product for any home looking for the perfect touch of modern simplicity, along with features like waterproof technology that make it ideal for busy homes.

Arguably just as beautiful but unique in its own right, (pictured below) this stunning flooring shows off just the right amount of wood graining and raw wood character with its convincing wood-look appearance. This laminate flooring is a favorite for 2021 because of its ability to be installed in accident-prone homes or homes with children.

As far as distressed wood-looks, any flooring that shows off natural wood knots, wood character lines, or looks like it has aged will make waves this year. This particular flooring displays a beautiful combination of these elements with its worn appearance, varying shades of dark brown knots, and character.

Lastly, rounding out our collection of gorgeous natural graining and distressed wood-look flooring shown below. More of a worn, barn wood gray tone, this luxury vinyl will prove to be a top choice for its trendy style and timeless appearance.

Thankfully, as flooring technology evolves, so do the impressive features that are available.
