Espresso, brown (Dark matte look), Jacobean and other dark hardwood floor stains will continue to be trend; they have staying power because of their sheer boldness.

The rustic look is the name of the game––it was in a year ago and that’s not going to change anytime soon. The handcrafted artistic is in, and this carries over to hardwood floors as well.
A matte finish is a great choice if you would like to accentuate the natural look of the wood. A matte finish does not reflect as much light as a glossy floor does. Matte finishes also do not show as much dirt, debris, and damage as high-gloss finishes.
