Fabulous Flooring Trends for 2014

by Lauren Busser The House Designers’ Editorial Director

Fall is the perfect time to install some new flooring in your home and this fall there are plenty of new flooring trends on the market to help you give your space a fresh, new look. From beautiful domestic hardwoods to luxury vinyls and laminates you are sure to find something that will fit your space, style and budget. Lumber Liquidators® is a great place to start your search with their wide array of flooring. From bamboo and cork to exotic and domestic hardwoods, you are sure to find the perfect floor for your home. Here are some color trends to help get you started.

Lumber Liquidators Bellawood Hues Natural Pewter Maple Prefinished Solid Hardwood Flooring

Bellawood® Hues Natural Pewter Maple Prefinished Solid Hardwood Flooring is the perfect on-trend flooring for anyone who wants to add a little touch of gray to their interior design. With a 100-year transferrable warranty, you can be sure that this floor will last for years, plus it is made in the USA.

Gray Tones

Gray has been a growing choice in many home surfaces. Everything from paint, tile and kitchen design has been going gray these last few years, and flooring is no exception. Gray styles and tints are a popular choice for anyone seeking a contemporary appearance in their home décor. The Lumber Liquidators® catalogue offers many gray choices such as the Bellawood® Hues Natural Pewter Maple and the Casa de Colour Pewter Birch prefinished hardwood selections. You can also try the Dream Home Meads Ranch Weathered Wood for a laminate option.

Lumber Liquiators Morning Star Dao Click Strand Bamboo Flooring

The Dao Click Strand Bamboo Flooring from Morning Star is one of the best bamboo floors on the market today. It's harvested from old growth bamboo that is at least 4 years old, making it strong and durable as well as eco-fiendly.


Bamboo has been a popular choice for a few years. Bamboo floors have an extremely hard surface which makes them ideal for areas of your home that are subject to wear and tear. Now, bamboo has been reinvented with plenty of colors to choose from. Not only do you have natural tan colors but also rich browns, dark blacks, silver tones and even patterns. For more exotic bamboo trends check out Morning Star Mei Strand Bamboo and Bellawood® Spice Ultra-Strand Bamboo.

Lumber Liquidators Virginia Mill Works Golden Teak Acacia Handscraped Flooring

Lumber Liquidators® is a great place to start looking for exotic hardwood flooring. Pictured here is the Virginia Mill Works Golden Teak Acacia Handscraped Flooring, a beautiful strong wood that adds lots of warmth to a space.

Exotic Hardwood

Much like bamboo, exotic hardwood has become popular due to its distinct, visually interesting appearance. Lumber Liquidators® is a great place to find these varieties. With a wide selection of beautiful tones and hues you can find a unique wood that complements your space beautifully. Whether you love the warm, soft tones of the Schön Quick Clic Engineered Brazilian Cherry or you prefer the darker, richer tones of Casa de Colour’s Victoria Mahogany you can find a floor that fits your lifestyle and the character of your home exactly.

Lumber Liquidators Casa de Colour Butterscotch Oak

Some rooms just call for a natural wood grain and finish and the Casa de Colour Butterscotch Oak is a perfect example.

Timeless Looks

The timeless look of natural wood grains will never go out of home fashion. The warm and inviting feel of a natural grain can really open up a space. Some of our timeless, favorite flooring options are: Bellawood® Natural Hickory Engineered, Virginia Mill Works Natural Hickory Easy Click, and Dream Home - St. James Butler County Beech Laminate.

Lumber Liquidators Bellawood Matte Brazilian Pecan Natural

High gloss has given way to beautiful matte finishes. Try a floor such as the Bellawood® Matte Brazilian Pecan Natural and let the natural beauty of the pattern shine through.

Matte Finish

Matte finishes have transformed home style in Europe and are growing in demand in the United States. A low gloss or matte finish hides small scratches, dirt, and hair making it the perfect flooring option for homes with kids and pets. For this style, we love the Bellawood® Matte prefinished hardwood collection. This collection is available only at Lumber Liquidators® and features a proprietary topcoat that boasts scratch, scuff and stain resistance. The result is an oil or waxed finish look without the constant maintenance associated with them. With a variety of styles the Bellawood® Matte® prefinished hardwood collection lets you find just what you're looking for in a low-gloss finish.

Lumber Liquidators Virginia Mill Works Fleetwood Oak Handscraped

Make a bold statement with the Virginia Mill Works Fleetwood Oak Handscraped flooring from Lumber Liquidators®. The distressed appearance and rich dark color make this flooring a great way to anchor a room.

Bold Statements

Flooring with a dramatic grain and stark contrast can help make a bold statement. Try flooring like the Dream Home – Kensington Manor Fumed African Ironwood Laminate, Bellawood® Acacia Engineered Hardwood, or Morning Star Tiger Bamboo for beautiful floors that have a personality all their own.

Lumber Liquidators Libson Cork Tobacco Road Cork

Cork flooring needn’t look at all like a cork board. Take the Libson Cork Tobacco Road Cork for instance. With its beautiful brown tone and grain most people would never guess it's cork.


Cork is another growing trend in the home improvement industry. Cork is a very comfortable and sustainable option that is made from the bark of the cork tree. The harvesting process leaves the tree intact and the bark grows back in nine years, ready to be harvested once more. Lumber Liquidators® offers a variety of cork flooring options including the Tobacco Road Cork pictured above and the Libson Cork Silves Cork.

These fabulous fall flooring trends are just a few of the terrific options available at Lumber Liquidators®. Click here to find a store near you and see some of these beautiful fall flooring trends in person.

Hawthorne House Plan Great Room

Take a look at the Great Room featured in the Hawthorne house plan. The beautiful natural wood colors make for a timeless look that won't go out of style.

You can capture the same warmth and beauty with similar products from Lumber Liquidators®. Check out their Bellawood® Select Birch and Bellawood® Natural Red Oak for gorgeous light colored hardwood flooring that will fit a variety of decorating styles.
