  • Budget
  • Longevity

Flooring can be costly but that doesn’t mean you have to settle on something you don’t like. Manufactures are making flooring in very affordable materials that are more cost effective and stunning. More and more flooring types can be installed yourself saving you money you can put back into the flooring.

Several types are flooring are leading the pack; waterproof laminate, American-made, carpet squares and eco-friendly. Lighter more neutral colors, such as, whites, grays, blonde or a high variation of lights and darks are trending as well.

This is also a big year for textures. You will see more hand-scraped, distressed and reclaimed flooring materials being used. Some of these looks are being recreated in porcelain and ceramic tiles. Ceramic Tile Trends have several styles of de-stressed and paint stroke decorative tiles that can be used as focal point elements in your flooring design.

Wow – Briques makes a beautiful wood tile that checks all the boxes. It has the look and feel of de-stressed, hand-scraped and reclaimed wood. Each box comes with randomly mixed pattern to give you a very unique look to your floors.

Another trend that is taking off are unique layouts and patterns

  • Checkered
  • Mixed Width
  • Wide Planks
  • Hexagon
  • Herringbone

Most homeowners are still leaning towards hard surfaces (wood, tile, vinyl and laminate) in 2020 but are demanding manufacturers continue to replicate natural wood and stone flooring trends.

Carpet is still a pretty popular choice but it is becoming less popular. Some homeowners love the look of a throw rug on a hard surface floor so they are mixing the mediums with carpet squares and wood or tile. Carpet squares increasing because of the ease of installation and when a section is worn or damaged you simply lift that square and replace it without the cost of replacing the entire carpet. No more “living with” the damaged areas.
