Flooring Trends for the 2018 New Year

flooring trends 2018, hot fresh new style floors

As we clean flooring throughout San Ramon, Danville, and Blackhawk, Diablo Carpet & Floor Restoration customers are starting to ask where to expect flooring trends to go. This is particularly true for homes where the flooring is outdated or those looking to renovate.

 

Gray Colored Flooring

2017 saw a big push towards gray colored flooring.  It looks modern, fresh, and is easily compatible with multiple interior design styles. This flooring tends to come in various patterns and can be carpet, vinyl, tile, and even some stained hardwood flooring.  The coming year will see gray flooring get even more popular, it’s just getting started!

 

Textural Color

While grays have been in, variety of looks and colors has also exploded.  What does this mean?  Solid browns, whites, and other traditional solid colors are out.  Dappled, streaky, and patterned colors are in.  Companies are utilizing a variety of materials, prints, and designs to expand upon what a floor can be in a home.  Families are now bringing more of their personality out through flooring color choices.  Check out a local flooring store and see all the unique styles that have taken hold.

 

Dent Resistant

Do items somehow get dropped in your home? Have you been frustrated by a dent in your floor? One of the newest flooring trends emerging is the development of dent resistant flooring.  We are seeing this mostly in luxury vinyl tile but it’s expanding into laminate flooring too.  If you have kids or tend to be clumsy, this could be a great option for flooring.

 

Waterproof Flooring

Bigger than dents, a floors biggest enemy is water.  Manufacturers have been working for years to find a way to limit the impact of water on floors.  When you spill that glass of water, your flooring could get moldy or it could become discolored. In the past, this has led many homeowners to replace their flooring.  However, 2018 may see this problem evaporate.  Beautiful hardwood flooring, vinyl tile, and carpet are already being released that is water resistant or waterproof.  While this will not remove the need to getting your flooring professionally cleaned by your local carpet cleaner or hardwood floor cleaner, it will reduce the need to get flooring replaced due to water damage.

4 of the Latest Flooring Trends To Watch in 2017

If you’re thinking of remodeling or updating your flooring in 2017, keeping an eye on the latest flooring trends for the new year is essential. New flooring can make your home more functional, easier to clean and more modern, not to mention dramatically improving the appearance of your home. A high quality new flooring installation can also significantly add to the value of your home, both in terms of financial resale value, and the quality of your immediate comfort and lifestyle. Here we look at 4 modern, enduring, and inspiring floor trends for 2017 that you’ll want to try for your home.

Gray Tone, Wide Plank, Matte Wood Flooring
Hardwood floors remain a classic and popular choice for high quality flooring in homes. While gray wood floors were seen to be a passing fad that was trending in the last few years, this trend doesn’t seem to be going away, with the neutral calming gray tones and elegant wide floor boards becoming a staple of modern homes. Matte and low sheen finishes are also popular as they hide minor wear and tear and scuffs without requiring an intense cleaning schedule. No matter what type of hardwood floor you have, professional hardwood floor cleaning is the best way to maintain the hygiene and appearance of your hardwood floors. While dark stained and blond wood floors will still be popular in 2017, gray wide plank floors will be the trend that continues to make an impact.

Back To Nature
Natural tones, textures, and the materials will continue to trend in 2017 as designers and homeowners continue to integrate the natural and built environments. One of the areas where this will influence flooring design in 2017 is carpet style and choice. Soft muted and natural tones utilizing sustainable fibers, integrated in durable, easy to clean carpet brings optimal comfort and warmth to your home. With professional carpet cleaning and area rug cleaning offering the gold standard for keeping your carpeted rooms clean and hygienic, sustainable and easy to clean carpet fibers should be a priority of choice for new flooring in 2017.

Warm Toned Tiles
Neutral, white and cool toned tiles are becoming less popular as homeowners look to warmer toned tiles to brighten living spaces. Warm toned, natural, and matte finish materials such as terracotta are the perfect choice for tiled floors in 2017. Warm toned tiles are rustic and classic, adding a character and warmth to interiors. However maintaining natural tiles can be a greater challenge. Professional tile and grout cleaning once or twice a year keeps your tiles looking like new regardless of the material or color.

Laminate For Price Point And Maintenance
If you want the look and feel of hardwood floors but the price tag is a little out of your reach, laminate floors can provide the perfect alternative. Cost-effective and ecologically sustainable laminate floors are more affordable and are also easy to maintain and clean. For an economical option with a luxury feel, laminate flooring is the perfect choice for your new floor in 2017.

New flooring brightens your home and revolutionizes the look of your interiors, so keep these four flooring trends in mind if you’re thinking of updating your floors in 2017.
