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 This is particularly true for homes where the flooring is outdated or those looking to renovate.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.
