Hardwood Flooring Trend #4: Matte and satin finishes

The high sheen floors are trending out and the matte and satin look are in for hardwood flooring trend #4. A lower sheen is great for families and pet owners because the lower sheen shows less dirt, pet hair, and everyday wear and tear. Low sheen floors hide small scratches and dents better than their high gloss counterparts.  What is not to like about that? The satin finish has a small sheen without being overly glossy and tends to be more popular than the matte, which has little to no sheen to it. The good news if you have a semi or high gloss floor and want to change it to a satin or matte finish? It is fairly easy and more affordable that changing the colour of your hardwoods. The finish to the flooring is an aesthetic choice and will not impact its durability.
