I'm trying to chose between a dark oak floor, or a cherry stain for my bedroom. Both would be laminate. Any advice? The oak is a cognac color, cherry a shade lighter. Is darker on the way out? Noticing more lighter woods. I'm always a day late with the trends it seems. Help.

Forget trends and pick a color that will compliment your furnishings and wall color.The darker the floor, the harder to keep looking clean. Have you considered a mid-tone?

hi deb,
I think that it is more important to take into consideration what you like, the colour of you bedroom furniture, perhaps the colour of the en-suite bathroom floor and furniture...
I wouldn't worry about what the trends are. They keep changing anyway.

Hi deb, bluenan and carolins both had great suggestions. Do you have any photos of the bedroom ?

When it comes to "Trends", it's in one's interest not to tie up $$ in floors, etc. Things that I call the "Majors". Get what you like and add in some of the ever changing "Trends" as accent pieces, or paint. Both are relatively inexpensive to change out. Floors and Furniture are not.
