Trending Hardwood Floors!

Distressed, Antique Styles

Sleek, modern hardwood styles dominate many homes, but antique styles are also gaining popularity. Most homeowners can choose between wood that’s been distressed by hand to appear antique and reclaimed wood that’s been repurposed into flooring. Of course, handcrafted distressed styles offer the best in modern flooring construction so that your floors are as durable as they are beautiful.

Gorgeous Grays

Gray is taking over as the new neutral in flooring. This often-overlooked shade is truly a great match for everything and can work in any space. Put it in a contemporary townhouse living room and you have a light-yet-classic look. Install it in a bedroom with dark walls and you can create a look that’s both rustic and eclectic. Gray is versatile, so it’s a great choice if you love to redecorate regularly.

Of course, American sourced and crafted floors are among the most praised hardwood trends of 2015.

Hot Hardwood Trends for 2015!

Hardwood flooring is timeless, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t also be contemporary and on trend. Manufacturers offer floors that complement the latest home decor while retaining their traditional value and appeal. If you’re considering having hardwood installed this year, take some time to consider these hot hardwood flooring trends. At S&G Carpet and More, we’re proud to offer our Northern California customers a wide range of stylish solid and engineered hardwood flooring.


Deep & Dark Coloring

Dark floors continue to grow in popularity among those who want hardwood that strikes a balance between classic and contemporary. These floors look elegant and coordinate well with a wide variety of architectural and decor styles. Among the most popular of shades are ebony and Jacobean. The former is among the darkest blacks available while the latter is a deep and rich brown.

One big advantage of this trend is its versatility in terms of style applications. Dark floors are available in a variety of widths and styles so that they can fit everything from the eclectic apartment to the upscale estate. Their rich shades provide excellent contrast for both bright and lightly colored rugs too.



Wide Planks

As 2015 progresses, wider and wider flooring planks are becoming incredibly popular. If you choose wide planks with a contemporary finish, you’ll have the ultimate floor for a modern, urban loft. If you choose wide planks in a distressed or natural finish, you can evoke the feeling of a rustic, authentic floor.

Wide planks also provide homeowners with a great way to make a small space look larger. Wide gray or whitewashed planks offer the best results when it comes to tricking the eye into believing that your small space is plenty roomy.

The Latest Carpets Trends!

Cushy & Comfortable

Bold design trends may come and go, but comfort is always in when it comes to flooring. Carpet manufacturers are rising to the occasion by offering incredibly comfortable, cushy carpets that also provide great stain protection. Extra-comfortable carpets are available in both standard designs and in bolder, newer styles. They’re the perfect choice for the bedroom and living room.

Area Rugs & Carpet Runners

Carpeting is a great choice for the home, but it’s not ideal in all rooms. Areas that see more moisture, such as bathrooms and kitchens, tend to be floored in hardwood, vinyl, laminate or tile. While these choices make great sense for these areas, carpet runners and area rugs are also becoming popular. They can add a pop of color while also providing cushioning for your family and pets. Rugs and runners are also fairly easy to store, so you can choose different styles and weights for every season.

Picking on-trend carpeting is a great way to improve the comfort and value of your home or office. At S&G Carpet and More, we’re proud to offer an awesome selection of carpets and area rugs. Visit one of our Northstate showrooms or make a shop-from-home appointment to explore your options today.

Looking for the latest Carpet Trends of 2015?

Carpets are a central part of a home’s decor scheme. Whether you choose bold, fashion-forward carpets or neutral standards, your flooring makes a statement. If it’s time to have new carpeting installed, get inspired by the hot carpet trends of 2015. At S&G Carpet and More, we carry an extensive selection of on-trend carpets and classic favorites in our Northern California showrooms.

Bold Patterns & Textures

Patterned carpets are quickly gaining popularity. Among the most favored are geometric patterns, which offer the contemporary and classic at the same time. Textured loop carpets lead the way here, but don’t fear that they’re not durable or comfortable. Today’s textured loop carpeting features various pile heights for added softness and durability. Other popular textures include striations and ribbing.

Gorgeous Neutrals

Neutral carpeting is a great choice if you want to make a bold statement with furniture, window dressings or walls. The most popular neutrals are light taupes and grays. Both are versatile colors that can be incorporated with a variety of design styles. Neutrals are a particularly good choice for those homeowners who enjoy redecorating frequently.

Muted blues and teals are also popular. While they aren’t true neutrals, many have gray undertones that make them work with practically any other color. These muted shades are also a great choice if you want to accent a certain area, such as a playroom or hallway.

Pet-Resistant Products

Pets are important members of your family, but they can be hard on your carpeting. That’s where new, pet-resistant carpets come to the rescue. These specialty carpets are designed to resist stains and odors. Special padding for pet-resistant carpeting also helps to repel moisture so that you don’t have problems with mold or lingering odors. Of course, these carpets also provide a soft, comfortable surface for your pet.

Is Cork Right for Your Home?

Whether you’re shopping for flooring for one room or for your whole home, you have to take a number of factors into consideration. First, you’ll need to think about the level of traffic in the area for which you need flooring. You’ll also need to consider who will use the floors the most. For instance, homeowners with large indoor dogs may want to skip traditional hardwood flooring due to the risks of damage.

Why we Love Wicanders Cork

One of the reasons we love carrying Wicanders cork flooring is that it offers incredible aesthetic appeal but doesn’t budge on durability. If you need flooring for a high traffic area such as a kitchen or hallway, cork makes a great choice. Cork is contemporary and classic all at the same time. Combined with accent rugs and area rugs, it can provide the perfect surface for your life.

Choosing Cork from Wicanders for Your Home

You can browse cork flooring online for hours, but we know there’s nothing like seeing flooring in person. S&G Carpet and More is proud to provide our customers with the best local shopping experience for cork flooring. You can browse our Wicanders flooring in one of our Northern California showrooms or make an appointment to shop from home for new flooring. Whichever you choose, you’re sure to love the striking cork flooring we carry.
