Distressed Wide Planks

Wide-plank flooring is increasing in popularity, due to its beauty and fewer seams. It comes in a variety of wood types, but choose a distressed wood if you want a rustic look. Design by Fiona Douglas

Reclaimed Pine

Most reclaimed pine comes from historical buildings. Using reclaimed pine flooring in your home has eco-friendly benefits and brings a historic touch and luxurious look to your home. Photo courtesy of Stromberg Moore Hardwoods; Photo by Tim Brown Photography

Maple Plank

The HGTV Urban Oasis 2011 powder room's maple flooring brings warmth against the black-and-white linear mosaic tile wall. Even though hardwood flooring isn't necessarily the first choice for bathrooms, it can work well in a powder room without a shower.

Red Oak

Red oak is one of the most popular flooring choices available because of its ability to coordinate with any design style. The reddish tones add to its beauty and its resistance to wear makes it a great option for high-traffic areas, such as a living room. Photo courtesy of Shaw Floors

Ebonized Hardwood

Ebonizing wood is a simple way to add luxury to a space. The dark, opaque look complements many design styles but really stands out in a neutral, contemporary space. Dark hardwoods, such as oak, cherry and walnut, create the best sleek black look. Design by Linda Sullivan

Reclaimed Wood

The natural features of reclaimed wood bring warmth, and it's a stunning choice for a bathroom once it's treated. Reclaimed wood can be incorporated in traditional and contemporary spaces. Photo courtesy of Mountain Lumber

Brazilian Cherry

If you want an exotic look, choose Brazilian cherry wood. The multitude of colors in the grain gives the floor a mosaic look. Aside from its visual appeal, its sturdy nature and affordable price make it a popular choice among exotic hardwoods. Photo courtesy of Lumber Liquidators

White Oak Puzzle Piece

A conversation starter doesn't have to be a piece of art. Designer Jamie Beckwith designed The Enigma Hardwood puzzle piece flooring to challenge the traditional wood-plank flooring. It comes in 16 different patterns with six unique stain choices for a custom look.


To bring high style to your space, choose eucalyptus hardwood flooring. Its fast growth and high availability makes it an eco-friendly and budget-friendly choice. Pair the flooring with white furnishings to create an elegant look. Design by Troy Beasley
