The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) has released its first-ever consumer-focused Wood Floor Styles and Trends guide.
This informative look-book is customizable, allowing NWFA members to brand the publication to use as a targeted marketing tool.
Designed to have a two-year shelf life, the 16-page booklet, sponsored by Bona, will help educate consumers to increase their knowledge of, and desire for, wood flooring, according to the association. The look-book contains a wide variety of photos highlighting the beauty, benefits and current trends of wood flooring. Copy is minimal, but compliments photos, sponsored by Mannington and Mohawk, by focusing on the following:
• Environmental benefits
• Indoor air quality
• Long-term value
• Increased home value
• Species selection
• Wood flooring types
• Finish options
• Home environment moisture management
• Finding local NWFA wood flooring professionals
The guide is available in both digital and print formats, making it suitable for e-mail campaigns, home shows, or direct marketing.
“This consumer guide will help ensure that those employees at the point-of-sale have a selling tool that guides the buying process to the right product, and provides the consumer with a checklist to make sure they have enough knowledge to make the right long-term investment in their home,” said Michael Martin, NWFA's president and CEO. “It is a valuable tool to help NWFA members market themselves and grow consumer demand for wood flooring.”
The guide will be available to consumers on NWFA’s consumer website, woodfloors.org.
