MILWAUKEE -- With fresh snowfall and the really cold weather -- many of us are stuck inside. So now is a great time to refresh your home. Brian Ducey of Lumber Liquidators joins FOX6 WakeUp with the hottest trends in flooring.

Floor Samples — and the new trend they showcase

  • Northampton Hickory — Cerusing/Lime-washing: this is a traditional but revived technique where you use liming wax or paint to accentuate the wood grain. This technique gives a “feathering” look to the grain.
  • Weatherly White Oak — Bleached/White-washing: this look is peaking for those who prefer a lighter, more open look, which is trending with the Scandinavian aesthetic and design. This look is achieved through a blanching process that still lets the natural grain patterns shine through.
  • Bristol Tavern Hickory — Fumed: fuming involves a treatment of “smoking” oak wood flooring to bring out darker colors for a shadowed look.
  • New collection – wide planks
