White Wood Flooring
White wood floors create the illusion of a larger space and lend an atmosphere that’s light, airy, and serene. Just like white walls, light-colored floors serve as a blank canvas for showcasing furnishings, accessories, and other treasures in a room.
The neutrality of white hardwood helps balance a room. Where white or light tones are already integral to the design, a white floor works in harmony to bring other colors, patterns, and textures to center stage. In spaces where darker tones rule, a white wood floor works as a welcome contrast.
White Wood Flooring Options
Armstrong offers the distinctive look of white in solid and engineered hardwood boards that deliver the look you want, plus the durability you need. You’ll find white wood options in a range of species from finely textured maple and birch to heavily grained white oak and walnut.
Choose from colors that span the neutral palette, such as elegant antique white and silvery-gray seashell white. Board widths range from traditional 2-1/4”strip to plank and wide plank up to 5”. All Armstrong hardwood floors come prefinished and feature high-performance coatings that protect against damage from scratches, dents, spills, and everyday wear-and-tear.
Decorating with White Hardwood Floors
Because white hardwood is just a little out of the ordinary, it makes a great base for striking interior design. The furnishings and accessories you add complete that all-important look of personalized style. Use white wood floors to complement these decorating styles:
Natural/Organic – White wood floors harmonize with strong, fresh colors and earthy tones without drawing too much attention. For a Zen-inspired room, pair white wood floors with natural fibers like linen and bamboo, delicate orchid plants, and a few pops of bold colors.
Rustic Country – The subtle texture of white hardwood adds dimension and keeps this style from feeling too bare or one-dimensional.
Minimalist/Modern Chic – A style that epitomizes simplicity, cleanliness, and functionality can sometimes verge on looking too stark. Light-colored natural wood floors add appealing warmth and understated contrast.
Coastal – Weathered white wood floors provide a smooth continuity to the easy charm of mix-and-match furnishings, soft and cozy colors, and quirky thrift store finds with a nautical flavor.
Even if your sense of style changes, white wood floors transition well to many decorating looks. They’re always in season!
