2019 Flooring Trends

Flooring trends don’t change nearly as often as fashion (thank goodness), but we are in a period of evolution thanks to advancing technologies.

Think about how quickly we went from flip phones (please tell me you remember flip phones!) to smartphones — that is what’s happening with flooring technologies. More now than ever before, lookalike flooring options and low maintenance flooring are options.

There are lots of flooring trends going on this year. If you’d like a glance at the 5 hottest flooring ideas, here’s a quick rundown.

1.) Wood-look flooring.

This isn’t new to 2019. Wood-look flooring in laminate, vinyl and ceramic tile has been hot for years now. In fact, it’s been the #1 flooring trend 2 years in a row now, with no end in sight.

2.) Waterproof flooring.

For years, tile was really your only waterproof flooring option. But! It’s 2019 – that means you can now purchase waterproof vinyl, laminate and even carpet tiles and planks! This new feature is a dream for busy, high traffic areas.

3.) Textured flooring.

Mimicking classic hardwood, you’ll see handscraped, wirebrushed and fully distressed floors in wood, laminate and luxury vinyl tiles and planks.

4.) Environmentally-responsible flooring.

Beyond looks, in 2019, business owners want to know where their floor came from. Using natural, renewable, recyclable and home-grown materials is huge right now.

5.) Blonde flooring.

Don’t worry; gray is still big! Blonde is just also in and it’s making a huge splash. Light, airy, blonde flooring works with just about any decor and instantly makes your space look bigger.
