There are so many choices when it comes to choosing flooring, don’t you think? It can be quite overwhelming. Finding a timeless look that works for the home can be tricky, but we have made up a list of the top 5 flooring trends of 2019 that will stay in style for years to come.

Read on to make sure you’re on trend when it comes to flooring

 

WOOD-LOOKING FLOORS ARE NOT GOING OUT OF STYLE

Wood-looking flooring like laminate, vinyl and ceramic tile has been a trend for many years now, meaning it’s safe to say it will not go out of style any time soon. The most popular looks are those replicating natural wood and stone. This means some trends coming our way could be marmoleum and cork, as well as parquet, which can achieve a much more personalized pattern. Light colors are very in, as well as wider planks and styles that look like rustic wood flooring. Laminate is also common because it is an eco-friendly option and looks and feels very much like wood.

WATERPROOF CAN NOW MEAN VINYL, LAMINATE AND CARPET

When we talk about waterproof, you would think we’d mean tile. But in 2019, there are now many waterproof options like vinyl, laminate and even carpet. Some trends in this arena are WPC (Wood Plastic Composite) vinyl. These resemble laminate flooring, giving a wood look and feel.

Waterproof carpet is also very trending because with a new lifeguard technology, they are now 100% waterproof and can be installed in any room in the house, including the bathroom. They won’t mold or stain. Waterproof laminate is also very popular since it mimics hardwood and traditional laminate, with the added bonus that it is waterproof.

TEXTURED FLOORING MIMICKING HARDWOOD

Textured floor means they mimic hardwood, but have a textured feeling, with some techniques being handscraped, wire brushed and distressed floors in wood, laminate and other. Handscraped looks have long, ingrained scrapes that vary between planks, meaning each plank looks handcrafted and unique. It makes the home feel timeless and expensive.  

Wire brushed looks are small, wire scratches that look like exposed wood, but much smoother. It adds to the character of your floor without looking unfinished. They also hide dirt really well.  Distressed looks have scrapes, burns, knots, amongst others and give an aged, antique look. They also go very well with brick walls, fireplaces and farmhouse feels.   

ENVIRONMENTALLY-RESPONSIBLE FLOORING FOR THE EARTH-CONSCIOUS

Being that we are in 2019, more people have an interest to know where their materials came from and this is no different with flooring. Using natural, renewable, recyclable and home-grown materials is a very big trend right now.

Recycled flooring is very in this year, meaning carpet is at the forefront of any material, because they are being made from partially-recycled materials. Some carpet-tiles are even being made from recycled plastic soda bottles. Recycled and reclaimed hardwood flooring is also in style, as well as natural, renewable and environmentally-friendly  sources like cork and bamboo.

BLONDE FLOORING MAKES FOR A LIGHT, AIRY FEEL

Blonde is making a huge splash in the flooring world because of its light, airy feel. The light stain brings out many details in the actual grain of the flooring, be it hardwood or laminate. It also gives an undone but done feel, which makes it very popular in kitchens. It also works with any type of décor and unlike its dark-grain counterparts, makes rooms look bigger, making it a big hit.

There you have it, the tops 5 flooring trends of the year. Choosing flooring can be overwhelming, but these trends will surely help you in deciding which to buy. After that, you’ll just have to install them.
