Design Trends for 2024 & How Hardwood Flooring Fits In


As we step into 2024, the world of home design is witnessing a delightful blend of classic elegance, energetic colours, and quiet luxury all at once.

At BreezeWood Hardwood Flooring, we understand the importance of staying ahead of the curve while maintaining the timeless appeal of hardwood flooring. In this blog, we’ll explore five prominent home design trends for 2024 and share how our locally sourced and sustainably harvested hardwood flooring can complement these contrasting styles flawlessly.

Nature-Inspired Retreats

The year 2024 welcomes a deeper connection with nature in home design. Bringing the outdoors in is not a new trend for 2024 but it is one that continues to gain momentum. By using eco-friendly materials, lush greenery, and earthy colours, a soothing atmosphere is created–one that improves well-being, connects us with nature, and deepens our sense of responsibility towards the environment.

As Ontario’s most sustainable and authentic wood floors, BreezeWood’s hardwood floors seamlessly align with this theme, offering a warm and natural foundation to any space. Opt for our Natural Hard Maple or White Oak products to evoke the essence of the great outdoors. These light-toned hardwoods create a serene atmosphere and act as a canvas for other natural elements like stone, leather, and botanicals.

Traditional Design with a Modern Twist

A fusion of classic and contemporary elements defines the trend of the new traditional design aesthetic. Gone is the over-stylized look of traditional design in favour of a more casual and functional feel.

BreezeWood’s rich and timeless wood species, like Walnut, perfectly complement this style, as do our selection of dark-toned wood floors. The distinct wood character and warm hues add a classic touch to this contemporary take on traditional design.

Jovial Colours

Injecting vibrancy and fun into living spaces, jovial colors, such as pink, teal, and yellow, are making a bold statement in 2024.

Whether you prefer light-toned or dark-toned wood floors, the key to choosing the perfect bold colour to liven up your home is to pay attention to the undertones in the wood floor.

To create contrast, identify the wood’s undertones and choose a colour on the opposite side of the colour wheel. For instance, pairing a warm, red-toned wood floor with a contrasting cool blue or green wall.

For a complimentary match with your hardwood floor, choose a colour that is within the same palette as the undertones in your wood. Hardwood floors can act as a versatile backdrop, allowing you to play with a spectrum of cheerful colors in your furnishings and decor.

Dramatic or Moody Interiors

For those who prefer a more dramatic aesthetic, moody interiors are taking center stage, using soft blacks, deep greys, or jewel tones on walls and as accents. These intense hues create a sense of sophistication.

Darker shades of hardwood flooring, such as our Natural Walnut or Hickory in ‘Chestnut’, contribute to the enigmatic atmosphere of these spaces. Balance the darkness with well-placed lighting fixtures and contrasting furniture to achieve a luxurious yet cozy ambiance.

Quiet Luxury

In contrast to bold and vibrant designs, the concept of quiet luxury emphasizes understated elegance by investing in quality pieces and elevated basics, such as real wood, marble, and cashmere.

Our White Oak in ‘Seagrass’ or Hard Maple in ‘Boardwalk’, with their neutral tones and subtle grain patterns, align perfectly with this trend. The light and subtle feel of these woods exudes sophistication without being overpowering. Complement the flooring with neutral furnishings and soft textures for a serene and luxurious retreat within your home.

At BreezeWood Hardwood Flooring, we take pride in offering not just a product but an experience. Our commitment to sustainability, local sourcing, and quality craftsmanship align seamlessly with this year’s evolving home design trends.
