It’s 2019 and it’s time to give your home a fresh new look. You’re finally ready to remodel your home, and you’re going to start by replacing the flooring. Whether it’s for the family or to ramp up the value of the house, a new floor will surely be a huge benefit.


But you want to make sure you get a floor that matches modern trends, especially if you plan on selling or renting your home soon. Choosing a good style for your floor can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. We’re going to help you out by sharing 4 modern flooring trends that can transform your home.

Innovative Material

One of the most popular trends in the flooring world today is the use of new, innovative material. We are making great progress in producing floors that are eco-friendly, sturdy, and low-cost. Here are just a few innovations that we’re sure are going to catch on:


  • Waterproof flooring
  • Wood and stone look flooring
  • Luxury vinyl
  • Engineered hardwood
  • Waterproof laminate
  • Environmentally friendly


These types of floors will add years of value for much less the cost!


Wide Planks

Hardwood planks have gotten bigger over time. They used to be rather small, but now people are embracing much larger, wider planks. And for good reason. These planks make your home look bigger in a much smaller space, creating a sense of openness even in the smallest apartment.


These planks also tend to come in lighter colors. Grey with a matte finish is one of the most popular. This adds to the effect of openness and space and is ideal for apartments.


Texture Carpet

Carpet is still a popular flooring trend and there are ways you can make it look modern. One way is through varied texture. Carpets have developed a lot since they first got popular and now we’re seeing homes bring them back with style.


For added value, we also recommend getting a waterproof carpet. New carpets are beautiful but part of why they don’t have a lot of value is because of how easily they stain. A waterproof texture carpet will help keep that from happening.


Environmentally Friendly

It looks like global warming is going to keep getting worse for a long time. And as the effects continue, consumer’s patience wanes. Consumers will continue to demand eco-friendly flooring and will continue demanding it as long as the effects of climate change worsen.


We predict that this trend will last for a very long time, and will probably never end. Today, even just putting an eco-friendly tag on your floor can increase your resale value and lower time on the market. People want eco-friendly options.


We predict that all of these trends are  going to stay a while. The latest innovations in flooring will always be in high demand, and so will environmentally friendly floors. While varied texture carpet is likely to change, waterproof will certainly not. And the effects of wide planks are hard to undervalue. Although extremes might become less popular.

And there you have it! The top 4 flooring trends of 2019.
