It is officially summer!  It is a time to let in the summer sun, brighten up your interiors and create comfortable, casual interior spaces that everyone can enjoy.

When decorating for summer, many people turn to lighter colors and shades especially with their flooring selection.  Although it may seem “trendy” light floors are incredibly versatile and timeless, so even if you change the color, style around the floor, the floor will still look beautiful.

Today, lets look at some different styles of light wood floors.  You’ll find hues like white, cream, beige, and grey – think linen, cotton and other neutral tones inspired by the earth.  These colors are inspired by naturalists, seaside enthusiasts, and modern stylists who like things sleek and sexy.


Light wood floors can suit many different types of interior design styles, some of the most popular include:

  • Contemporary
    • Sleek lines, and minimalist décor and furniture love the neutral, soft shades of a light floor.
