At MacDonald Hardwoods, we’re always looking to stay on top of the latest hardwood flooring trends. As we enter 2023, we’re excited to share with you the top trends we believe will shape the industry in the year ahead.

One of the most popular trends we expect to continue in 2023 is wide-plank hardwood flooring. These wider boards provide a more modern look to any room, and have been growing in popularity in recent years. They’re particularly effective in larger spaces, as they can help to make a room appear more spacious.

Lighter Finishes

Another trend we’re seeing is a shift towards lighter wood finishes. Blond and whitewashed floors have become increasingly popular, particularly in contemporary homes. These lighter finishes can help to brighten up a space, and can work well in rooms that don’t receive a lot of natural light.


Mixed-width flooring is also growing in popularity. This trend involves combining different widths of wood flooring to create a unique and visually interesting pattern. It’s a great way to add character and personality to a room, and can be particularly effective in larger spaces.

Sustainability is another trend that’s becoming increasingly important to homeowners. We expect to see continued demand for environmentally friendly options such as FSC-certified or reclaimed wood flooring. These options not only provide a beautiful finish, but also offer peace of mind knowing that they were sourced responsibly.

Matte Finishes

Matte finishes are also expected to continue their popularity in 2023. This finish provides a more natural look, as it doesn’t reflect as much light as a high-gloss finish. Textured hardwood flooring is another trend we expect to see more of in the year ahead. Textured finishes can add depth and dimension to a room, and are particularly effective in areas with high foot traffic.

Dark Finishes

Finally, classic dark wood finishes are another trend that’s expected to continue in 2023. These timeless finishes can add warmth and sophistication to any room, and are a great way to create a traditional and elegant look.
