Flooring trends of the year

A lot goes into renovating a home or office. Fixtures, flooring, and furniture—there’s so much to do!

The best thing about a remodel is that you can incorporate a theme that ties the entire space together.

Whether you’re aiming for modern minimalism or the grandeur of traditional designs, you can always count on current trends to guide you along the way.

2019 is a year of simplistic beauty, functionality, and a meshing together of various styles, colours, and textures. Here are some of the leading trends to look out for:

Darker hues

Incorporating dark, rich hues in your flooring gives every room an unmatched elegance. Juxtaposing bright pops of colour and pristine white against the dark flooring will give it a modern, sleek look.

Dark flooring—including engineered and solid wood, luxury vinyl tiles, and laminate flooring in deep hues such as oak, walnut, chocolate, and mahogany—adds a rustic, warm look to your home or office.

Pristine white

One stand-out feature of the minimalism that’s rampant in 2019 is the use of white. Whether you’re remodelling your kitchen, bedroom, or office, luminous white flooring opens up the space immensely.

Take in the glimmering white flooring as natural lighting bounces gracefully off it, giving you a blank canvas to add design elements. Opting for a pristine cream or white floor—in laminate, vinyl, or lighter hues of wood flooring—adds a breezy, farmhouse aura to your home or office.

Warm wood

One thing’s for sure, wood flooring brings a rustic, warm feeling to any room. Due to the variety of shades and hues it comes in, wood flooring is a popularly used material in home renovations.

From engineered, herringbone, and parquet options, add an elegant touch to your home, studio, or office with this beautiful, classic choice that never goes out of style.

Go bold with patterns

Gone are the days when neutral colour palettes were the go-to choice for home and office redecorators. So instead of adorning your spaces with tan and white flooring, add a touch of modern elegance with pops of colour.

Carpet tiles are a popular way of following this trend. Whether you want to tie together the various hues in the room or anchor the room with a bold pattern, carpet tiles are heavy-duty, durable alternatives. Not only will they add a fresh touch, but they’re also a beautiful, convenient way to amp up the look of any room.
