Julianna Labriola |

When it comes to crafting a home that truly reflects your style, the choice of flooring is paramount. Whether you're contemplating the floors in your kitchen, bathroom, or even your staircase, it's essential to select designs that resonate with you, as these elements will greet you every day for years to come. With a myriad of options available, from materials to patterns to colors, the decision-making process can feel simultaneously exhilarating and daunting.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the most prominent flooring trends of 2024 and how we can bring them right to the top step of your staircase.


  1. Parquet De Versailles

Parquet de Versailles wood flooring has seen a rise in popularity, with companies noting an increase in its use across various wood species, sizes, and tones. This intricate design, originating from the palace of Versailles, involves over 40 individual pieces meticulously crafted to fit together seamlessly. While creating Parquet de Versailles stair treads might not be feasible, homeowners can still enjoy the versatility of choosing from a range of wood tones we see in such a variegated design.

Despite the challenges of replicating this design for stairs, options abound for coordinating the chosen wood tones with stains and textures. We at Hardwood Stairs Direct specialize in ensuring a harmonious integration between flooring and staircase aesthetics, offering guidance to achieve a cohesive and stylish look throughout the home.


  1. Character Woods

In the realm of wood flooring, knots, burls, and distinctive grains contribute to what's known as "character." While minimalism remains popular, there's a growing trend towards infusing homes with more personality, prioritizing individuality over resale value. This shift towards embracing uniqueness is evident as homeowners are increasingly drawn to flooring that boasts a rich tapestry of natural features.

Hardwood Stairs Direct offers a customization option that allows customers to select their preferred wood grade, ensuring that character-rich floors extend beyond the ground level. By choosing any wood species with character marks, homeowners can infuse their entire home, including staircases, with a sense of sophistication and individuality, elevating the overall design aesthetic.


  1. Long-Plank Floors

Many homeowners seek ways to visually expand their living spaces, and one effective method involves opting for longer and wider hardwood or luxury vinyl planks. By using these elongated boards, the illusion of a larger space can be created, making it a popular choice among homeowners.

Expanding spaces through flooring is just one aspect of maximizing roominess. Long-plank floors present an opportunity for homeowners to explore innovative design ideas further. For instance, they can consider incorporating a floating staircase design, made possible with customizable thick stair treads from Hardwood Stairs Direct. With a wide range of wood species, dimensions, and character options available, customers can effortlessly coordinate their thick stair treads with their long-plank hardwood floors, creating a cohesive and visually appealing design scheme throughout their home.


  1. Warm Toned Flooring

In recent times, there's been a noticeable shift towards warmer tones in flooring choices, reflecting a growing desire for more color in interior design. After years dominated by minimalism, characterized by either very light or very dark floors, there's now a preference for flooring that strikes a balance, offering a statement color that complements other elements within a space. These mid-toned floors strike the perfect harmony, allowing their patterns to shine while also providing visual weight to a room.

With this resurgence of warmer tones, there's no better time for homeowners to explore custom options for stair treads offered by Hardwood Stairs Direct. This may be a perfect time to try out woods like maple or birch which naturally have warmer tones. Homeowners can easily choose their preferred wood species from our customizable shop and specify the natural tone or stain they would like their stairs to coordinate to.


  1. High Contrast Flooring

In 2024, high-contrast design is gaining traction, where dark hardwood floors are paired with light-colored walls and furnishings, creating a visually striking effect. This approach highlights the beauty of the flooring, turning it into a focal point within the room.

When extending this concept to staircase design, dark woods like walnut can complement the overall aesthetic seamlessly. Alternatively, customers can choose their preferred wood species, trusting Hardwood Stairs Direct to expertly coordinate the stain to match the flooring. It's essential to emphasize the importance of coordinating the stair tread stain with the floor stain, ensuring a cohesive and stunning high-contrast look throughout the home.
