Luxury Vinyl Planks
Luxury vinyl plank (or LVP) is taking the market by storm! Don’t be confused by the label. Luxury vinyl plank looks almost identical to wood planks, but is often more durable and costs less. This floor easily compares to the color and species of virtually any hardwood on the market, and can be installed in sophisticated patterns like brick, diagonals, herringbone and more.
Parquet hardwood floors are making a comeback! These unique floor designs are made of solid wood pieces arranged in geometric designs or unique patterns – think herringbone! – and it’s seeing a revival as homeowners look for ways to draw attention to rich, natural wood.
Carpet tiles combine traditional carpet and classic tiling, to give homeowners a carpet that’s easy to install and unique designs. So it’s no wonder modular carpet tile is a growing alternative to traditional carpeting.
Wide Plank Hardwoods
Hardwood remains one of floorings most popular trends, but in 2018 homeowners are leaning toward wider planks, with boards often a foot wide or even broader!
Cork flooring is eco-friendly, springy, and offers an interesting, pulp-like wood pattern. It’s also quite affordable, making it an increasingly common choice for homeowners.
Distressed Plank Flooring
Distressed wood planks are popular for many reasons! They’re often eco-friendly, reclaimed wood materials and make an ideal flooring for both modern and farm-style houses. However, they tend to be quite expensive, so choose a hue you’ll love for decades to come!
Ebony Wood Flooring
Ebony floors are extra-dark hardwoods (often achieved through ebony stain) that provide a rich, solid appearance. These floors pair particularly well with lighter walls, colorful rugs, and lots of windows!
