We’re a couple months into 2018 now, and this year’s design trends are beginning to present themselves. Let’s look at the emerging flooring trends for 2018!
An emerging trend from last year continues to gather steam. One of this year’s hottest trends has been bleached or grey wood flooring. This type of flooring brightens up a space while retaining the wood grain texture that makes wood floors so appealing.
Most manufacturers produce some sort of bleached or grey wood texture products, ranging from laminate and vinyl to true hardwood products. In some cases, you can have your existing hardwood stripped and bleached to produce this look. Talk to a flooring professional to learn more.
For those tired of hardwood flooring, treated concrete floors are a popular option that can bring a lot of stylishness and texture to any home. Distressed materials give a trendy, industrial feel to a space, and are very popular this year.
Carpet tile is a great alternative to wall-to-wall carpeting. It’s easy to install and comes in many patterns and colours. It is suitable for many applications, including play rooms, living areas, and office spaces.
Looking for something durable, stylish, and a little different? Terrazzo flooring is a type of flooring that combines aggregate materials (glass, stone, crystal, or synthetic additives) with polished concrete, for an incredibly durable and resilient flooring. It comes in many styles, and is very easy to clean. It’s an eclectic choice that is gaining traction this year.
