If you’re thinking of redesigning your floor and are looking for design ideas, these new trends could provide some inspiration. Overall, we are making a trend away from tradition and more towards newer and more creative styles. But above all, the main drive for new flooring trends are about durability and environmental impact. Here are four up and coming flooring trends
Environmentally Friendly Floors
Green flooring is among the most popular flooring trends and we’re expecting it to stay! Installing a new floor can have a greater environmental impact than you may think. While hardwood flooring is still by far the most popular choice for new floors, they do carry a major environmental effect. It promotes deforestation, and while they last for a while, they are more susceptible to water damage.
Environmentally friendly alternatives like vinyl, bamboo, cork, or any other floors made of recycled material are growing very quickly, and may soon become standard.
Along with making flooring environmentally friendly, homeowners also want to protect their homes from environmental disasters as much as possible. With more floods, storms, stronger hurricanes, and environmental instability homeowners are realizing how much risk these can do to their homes and want to take steps to mitigate that as much as possible.
And with scientific progress, we are able to provide almost any floor design you want, including carpet, a waterproof version. We also expect these designs to continue development so that they become cheaper and even more durable over time.
Vinyl is not what it used to be. Today vinyl has been developed enough so that there is almost no distinction from hardwood. You can have the luxury of a hardwood floor with one of the cheapest and more environmentally friendly materials.
One of the most popular options with vinyl is to have a laminate dark and large-board hardwood floor look. Dark hardwood is in style right now and vinyl is an excellent way to make it affordable too! The only downside is that vinyl doesn’t last as long as hardwood, and it will not be as helpful in increasing the value of your home, but it won’t hurt your home either!
And of course, there are waterproof options available too.
Texture is very much in style, and it’s all about hardwood. Whether you actually want real hardwood or not, many alternatives are made in a way that mimics hardwood. Everyone wants a hardwood floor. And the type of hardwood that is most popular are textured wood, and varying styles and colors. A single uniform look is less desired now in favor of a more personalized and unique look you get from varied flooring.
