In an age of advancing technology, we have access to products we could have only dreamed of. Step into today’s most popular flooring trends and you’ll find everything from green based environmentally-friendly flooring to textured and waterproof flooring. With so many varieties of flooring available, you can choose one that perfectly fits your everyday lifestyle. Let’s take a look at the most current flooring trends and why they’re your next ideal floor.
Welcome to 2018, where waterproof flooring no longer has to be tile. Now, waterproof flooring can be anything from carpet to vinyl to laminate. All of these options vary in design and style, while protecting your floors from extreme water damage. Be prepared for the next time your washing machine decides to spontaneously leak and destroy your laundry room floors with durable waterproof flooring.
Environmentally Friendly Flooring
One trend that has become more important to homeowners in recent years is environmentally friendly and responsible flooring. Today, many homeowners want to know if the materials used for their flooring meet the requirements of being natural, recyclable, renewable and perhaps even home-grown. Bamboo, cork, linoleum, glass tiles, concrete, wool carpeting, leather, rubber, and reclaimed hardwood are all eco-friendly flooring solutions you may be interested in for your next flooring option.
Textured flooring is changing things up a bit by mimicking classic hardwood with wire brushed, hand scraped, and fully distressed floor styles. Whether you’re feeling smooth, rippled, grainy or velvety, a textured floor has the power to invigorate, calm, energize or comfort you. These flooring options can come in wood, laminate and a variety of other options.
While wood-look floors aren’t anything new to 2018, more and more manufacturers are offering wood-look flooring for laminate, vinyl, and ceramic tile. Wood-look flooring has actually been one of the top flooring trends for 2 years in a row now, allowing you to acquire the same elegant look with wood-look flooring, but at a fraction of the price!
