SEVEN INSPIRING 2019 HOME FLOORING IDEAS
Floor trends follow similar patterns as trends in the fashion and decor industries. What was once old is new again, and many “new concepts” have embedded traces from old ideas. Many of the popular home flooring ideas listed below take a refreshed spin on several traditional favorites. Whether you’re a fan of hardwood, luxury vinyl tile, or carpet, there is no shortage of home flooring ideas for a fresh new look.
- Luxury Vinyl Tile
Goodbye, sheet vinyl! And hello to the new, improved, and vastly different luxury vinyl tile. It’s not surprising that LVT is on the rise as a top flooring option. LVT resembles the look of ceramic tile but comes at a much more affordable price. Similar to ceramic tiles, LVTs come in individual pieces rather than a sheet. Even more appealing, LVT is easy to clean and doesn’t require drastic replacement measures (unlike ceramic tile when it cracks or chips).
- Lighter Hardwood Variations
While dark wood will always be a classic, favorable look for some, many homeowners now opt for lighter variations of hardwood. Experts hint toward an increasing popularity of shades like “Bermuda Stone Gray,” “French Limestone,” and “Sea Salt White.” Lighter hardwood colors invoke a warm, rustic feeling. Much like the names mentioned, the latest hardwood coloring both conjures and accommodates a cottage and beach feel. And, because these color variations are not stark white, dirt and other foot traffic byproducts won’t be as noticeable.
- Distressed and Dynamic
A global trend in all types of flooring leans toward dynamic and unique. Homeowners are looking for flooring options that are distinct and full of character. For some, this means distressed hardwood or luxury vinyl planks that resemble this appearance. Knots, streaks, and imperfections aren’t a liability—they’re a plus!
- Wider Tile and Planks
Bigger is better when it comes to individual tiles and planks. Homeowners are shifting toward large-scale individual tiles and planks as a flooring preference. This may include hardwood, stone, ceramic, luxury vinyl tile, or luxury vinyl planks.
- Precision Performance and Style
While homeowners are all about beautiful flooring options, they want to secure a high-performance choice as well. This means ensuring that the floor choice can stand up to moisture, fading, staining, and other damage indicative of high-trafficareas. To accommodate the residential buyer’s need for style and performance, many flooring distributors are upping factory technology to produce waterproof, stain-resistant, and more durable products.
- Creative Carpet Choices
Carpet makes up for up to 60% of all retail flooring sales. With a range of colors, designs, and textures, it’s no wonder carpet has maintained such a high rank in the flooring market.
- Green and Eco-Friendly Floors
Given the increase of environmental awareness in society, it’s not surprising that green-conscious buyers are seeking flooring that fits this eco-friendly mold. Retailers are happy to oblige by offering eco-friendly flooring solutions such as hardwood, cork, linoleum, rubber, and vinyl.
