Are you ready to brush off 2018 and charge into the New Year? Is it time to remodel or freshen up one or more rooms in your home? Let’s take a look at the upcoming flooring trends and lay out some options from which you can choose.
Light and bright space with some visual intrigue will be the new look for bathroom floors. Various shapes of subway tiles, herringbone, chevron, and small squares mixed together on floors, walls, and shower areas allow for a variety of textures and patterns.
While wood and water don’t always mix, wood-like tiles are making a splash on bathroom floors. The realistic look of these planks comes in differing styles and colors.
Rustic farmhouse décor continues to be fashionable in the kitchen. Longer and wider floor planks showcase reclaimed materials and natural aging. A weathered, well-worn, and comfortable feeling permeates this style of flooring.
An alternative to the farmhouse look is the use of grey hardwood floors. This patterned flooring pairs well with brushed stainless steel, tainted glass, and dark or lighter cabinetry.
The living room provides a space to showcase something special, like exotic wood flooring. Brazilian Cherry, Teak, and Wenge wood floors and furniture provide a unique base and accent for your everyday room.
Large format tiles will be paving many living rooms in 2019. The clean look of these rectangular or square shapes will make your space feel bigger. For high-traffic areas like the living room, these tiles make a dramatic statement.
Carpet continues to be a great choice for many homeowners. More patterns, colors, and designs are guaranteed to add variety, warmth, and a comfortable feel to your room. Dark or light colored carpeting can provide a simple, luxurious element.
Wood floors and wood-like tiles, as mentioned above, also will be among the top choices for ease of cleaning and continuity from other rooms.
Yes, even the garage needs some attention. 2019 can be the year you place rigid plastic, snap-together tiles, wood composite tiles, or flexible rubber tiles in your parking area. Epoxy paint or concrete stain provides an instant improvement to the floor that takes a lot of abuse from moisture, oil drips, and chemical spills. Whether you choose a covering or a coating, you can create a floor that is affordable and durable.
Spend a few moments surveying the floors in your home. Choose a room you’d like to spruce up then make a decision on the type of covering you would like to have underfoot. You can spend the next few weeks determining how you will enhance your home in the New Year.
