Luxury Vinyl Plank in Westerville from Six Floors Down

Flooring Trends for the Upcoming Year

When it comes to remodeling your home, new flooring is one of the most popular and cost-effective ways to give your home an updated look. What are the new trends in flooring going into the new year?

One of the most popular trends is opting for hard surface flooring in the main living areas of the home. Hard surface flooring would typically include luxury vinyl planks that look like wood flooring or tile.

In the past, homes might have sheet vinyl or ceramic tile in the kitchen, foyer, and bathroom and also carpet, wood, or both in other rooms of the main living areas. Recently, we have seen more and more homeowners opt to put the same flooring throughout the entire first floor of the home for clean, open, and unified look.

For families with children and pets, the newer luxury vinyl tile and plank has been extremely popular because they offer great visuals, they are completely waterproof, maintenance free, and one of the lowest cost options for new flooring. Luxury vinyl is durable, long lasting, and beautiful, and is quickly becoming the floor covering of choice for many homeowners.

For homeowners without such an active environment, many of them have opted for hardwood or engineered wood floors, especially those with wider planks, and more distressed appearance. Also, real estate agents agree that homes with wood floors can sell for up to 10% more than homes without wood floors.

What about the trends in carpet, are people still installing carpet? You bet they are, especially in bedrooms and upstairs living areas. The newer styles of carpet are very compelling visually, and yarn systems have been vastly improved. Newer carpets are much more difficult to stain, soft to the touch, and more durable than ever before.
