When you think Nordic and Scandinavian style, you typically think mountain lodges, blonde wood and plenty of it. The light, bright interior styling we associate with this part of the world is characteristic of everyone from designer Josef Frank through to Ikea and is a great way to give your home a fresh, clean feel.
When it comes to wood flooring that fits this styling, what you need to be thinking of are light blonde oaks, white-washed boards and oiled finishes. In other words, with this look there’s nothing bright and shouty and there’s certainly nothing shiny.
A great style to mix with relaxed and comfy furnishings, washed out colour palettes and plenty of soft sheepskin, this really is a warm and cosy look for the winter months ahead, yet won’t look out of place when the temperatures do rise.
At Wood and Beyond we like to have a really broad range of light and white floors in stock at all times, which is great news for people who want a wide choice. But if you’re specifically looking for Nordic and Scandinavian style wood flooring, here are some of our very best solutions.
