If you’re ready for a new flooring installation this year, you’ll want to consider all of your options. There are many materials available like tile, hardwood and laminate, so there’s a lot to consider when choosing a flooring replacement. With so many different flooring options, it can be hard to make a decision. It’s always a good idea to check out what’s popular to give you new ideas. Here are some flooring trends that you can consider for your home.

Vinyl’s endless options

Vinyl flooring continues to be popular because it’s affordable and easy to clean. Vinyl flooring comes in different styles, colors, patterns, and textures, so finding a look you like is easy. Luxury vinyl flooring has also become popular. You can now get vinyl products that look similar to stone, hardwood, and even marble. 

Creative colors

For many years, dark flooring was the top choice among homeowners, but that’s shifted recently. Many homeowners are now looking for warmer colors. Anything that’s whitewashed, blonde, or gray is a good starting point. Why the change? Warmer colors are easier to match with your furniture and walls. The lighter look can also make homes appear more inviting, especially rooms that get a lot of sunlight. Laminate flooring, vinyl flooring and hardwood flooring come in various colors, so you have plenty of options no matter which material you choose.

Tile flooring

The popularity of tile has increased over the years since they come in different patterns, colors, styles, and textures. Tile can be a good option for bathrooms, kitchens, and other rooms. Many homeowners like how tile can look like hardwood flooring, come in eye-catching designs, and have interesting shapes. You can even get ceramic tiles that look like marble or stone without paying luxury prices.

Patterned flooring

Patterned tile floors in your kitchen or bathroom make a bold statement. Adding a pattern like herringbone, chevron, or wide planks can be a creative choice. 

Consider carpeting

Carpeting is still a popular choice due to relatively low cost and new styles available. Not only do carpets come in a variety of colors and materials, they also have many different patterns. Carpet tiles and planks have also become a popular option because you can mix and match different designs and colors. Look for patterns and textures such as geometric, floral, frieze and plush as they’re vibrant and easy to maintain.
