DALLAS, May 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- As spring begins to barefoot into summer, Pergo, the inventor of laminate flooring and one of the world's most recognized flooring brands, shares the season's hottest trends in home décor.
"Interiors are getting brighter," says Paij Thorn-Brooks, vice president of marketing for Pergo. "We're seeing whites in every shade dominate surfaces: floors, countertops and cabinets. Light tones make everything feel clean and contemporary whether your style is coastal chic, French country or urban eclectic."
Look for lighter woods throughout homes as well as rich textures and mixed media. Floors and accents feature more tonal variation and highlight reclaimed wood features such as wire-brushing or chatter marks.
Thorn-Brooks suggests incorporating more natural textures, like reclaimed wood and stone, throughout the home. "Rustic looks contrast beautifully with sleek contemporary finishes," she says. "Cabinets and surfaces trend towards modern, clean lines and neutral tones: gray, white, and taupe – with navy and mint green for pops of color."
To freshen up flooring, opt for laminates such as Esperanza Oak, San Marco Oak or Vintage Pewter Oak. These cooler shades give the look and feel of authentic hardwood with superior wear and scratch protection – perfect for high-activity homes summer after summer.
Pergo Hardwood in Falls River Hickory or Creekside Oak will complement summery living areas, dining rooms and bedrooms because they're engineered to be up to five times more durable than ordinary hardwoods.
All Pergo laminate and hardwood flooring are made from recycled wood and the highest quality materials that are safe for families and pets.
