Hot Flooring Trends for 2018
It is always exciting to look at current and upcoming flooring trends to make sure your new kitchen is appealing and up to date. Since it is an investment you don’t want to repeat every year or two, it is also important to look at flooring that is trendy yet will remain stylish. Here are a few suggestions that could help you do that.
Wood and wood-looking flooring continues to be popular and should remain so for many years to come. The only difference is that there are more material options to choose from that can give you that look and the types of styles that are gaining popularity is changing. For example, in terms of color, extreme darks, extreme lights, and mixing the two with high variation is a hot flooring trend. Getting more texture involved, such as hand scraped, distressed, and wire brushed wood is also in demand.
Consider patterns such as herringbone, chevron, mixed width, and wide planks for optimal style. As far as materials, cork, laminate, bamboo, and luxury vinyl planks are rising in popularity as flooring options. The quality and durability of the materials on the market are higher than ever, allowing for lasting beauty.
There are plenty of classic choices in flooring, too, so it is perfectly fine to stick with the elegance of a smooth appearance instead of going with the textured, bold trends.
