Thanks to a variety of popular design schemes, modern updates, and more savvy common uses of natural light, gorgeous blonde hardwood options are in high demand with homeowners and designers alike- and who can disagree! Lighter neutral wood tones can instantly make the surface area of a room or floorplan appear bigger and feel more open while adding brightness and pairing well with a wider range of colors. 

Perfect for completing an airy, natural space or anchoring a breezy coastal-chic interior, these blonde colors will even pair better with darker stained cabinetry, furniture, railings, and beams than bleached hardwood floors. With water-resistant Hearthwood options, you can have the blonde hardwood look you love throughout the home for greater design capability and easy maintenance thanks to WetWorx™ Spill and Splatter Guard. Here are a few of our favorite blonde hardwood floors to uplift your stylish room: 

ENTROPY | CONTROLLED CHAOS COLLECTION – With high color range and dramatic color shifts, we love the way this Entropy white oak from the Controlled Chaos Collection (below) creates a versatile blonde floor that will elevate a variety of decor themes. In this room, the light brushed texture and natural matte finish allow the warm brown desk to pop with appropriate contrast while the two wood tones work together effortlessly:

WHITE ROCK | TENNESSEE TRAILS COLLECTION – From modern to contemporary looks, a bright blonde wood such as White Rock white oak from the Tennessee Trails Collection (below) provides the perfect blank design canvas to easily craft an eye-catching room. Add pops of color and pattern in the form of textured pillows and unique area rugs to easily update your décor. We love this combination of light blonde planks and dark wall paint for an eye-catching, versatile duo that creates a hip, lasting impression:

PORCELAIN | AU NATURELLE COLLECTION – When it comes to easy maintenance, blonde wood floors such as Porcelain white oak from the Au Naturelle Collection (below) will also help hide dust, dirt, scratches, and scuffs better than bleached wood or whitewashed finishes. Dark wood floors are extremely striking, but you will spend more time dusting, vacuuming, and mopping the floors in kid’s rooms or high-traffic areas. This kitchen floor showcases bright warmth with rustic characteristics that will still look fantastic as the years roll on:
