Fresh and Modern Whole House Flooring Ideas

Perhaps you’re in the process of building a new home. Or, maybe you need to overhaul the floors of your existing house. Either way, the process of finding whole house flooring ideas can be both exciting and anxiety-producing. Conducting an online search for home flooring ideas will give you dozens of credible sources—but that’s not always helpful! In fact, it can be overwhelming.

At Floor Coverings International, we routinely help homeowners to find ideal flooring ideas by taking the time to listen to their needs. When flooring an entire home, it’s important to find a solution that’s both aesthetically desirable and functional. We strive to make the process as efficient and stress-free as possible.


Perhaps you love the look of hardwood and stone tiles but have concerns that your budget won’t accommodate either flooring type. Maybe you have a home dominated by children and pets and are beginning to second guess carpet. These concerns and others arise all the time for homeowners looking to redecorate.

At FCI, it’s our job and privilege to address our customers’ questions. We believe it is key to not only have a flooring contractor that truly listens but also know that this person’s expertise encompasses the latest market knowledge and trends.

Take a look at a few common questions and answers surrounding the latest trends in house flooring ideas.

  1. I love the look of hardwood floors but I’m not sure we can afford to cover the entire house. Is there an alternative?
    Yes! Some of our clients were very happy after installing hardwood floors in their hearth room or bedroom while giving for the remainder of the house an alternative floor choice. You might also want to consider luxury vinyl flooring. Luxury vinyl planks (LVPs) and luxury vinyl tiles (LVTs) resemble a variety of hardwood species in a range of different colors.
  2. I’d like to mix and match flooring types, but what options are appropriate for a busy, full house? 
    Luxury vinyl is an amazingly versatile and durable flooring product. Laminate flooring is another affordable avenue to explore. Applying luxury vinyl or laminate to the entire house is cost-effective well-worth the return on investment. Both types of flooring are perfectly suited to the trend of mix-and-matching varying wood colors for a contemporary look. And, our clients love how easy luxury vinyl and laminate are to clean and maintain.
  3. I’ve noticed “blonde” flooring is popular, but it looks like a challenge to clean. Is it?
    Indeed, blonde-colored floors are trending as of late. This look can be achieved with hardwood, vinyl, or laminate. Contrary to what you may think, lighter shades of flooring actually conceal most of the common household culprits. Dirt and even scratches are less noticeable on blonde floors than darker floors, such as a deeper Brazilian cherry or mahogany tone.
  4. I want a modern-looking carpet installed in my house. But what does “modern” mean today in terms of carpeting? 
    Carpet has remained a steadfast residential flooring option throughout the decades. This choice is often cost-effective and generally more comfortable to walk on than other types of flooring. Plus, carpet comes in an endless array of styles, textures, and colors. Today, many residential clients enjoy introducing color to their carpet palette. Some homeowners also want to explore color and dimension in specific areas (rather than wp/to-wall carpeting). You might consider these design options to spruce up a room in your house.
  5. Is there an easy way to have a combination of flooring material throughout the house without it looking “hodgepodge” or disjointed?
    Absolutely! At FCI, we work with clients all the time to incorporate different flooring materials throughout their home. We’ve seen beautiful results with mixing a variety of contemporary styles utilizing a combination of carpet, tile, luxury vinyl, hardwood, and more.

The wonderful thing about whole house flooring ideas in the modern market is that virtually any style can be accomplished!
