Homeowners are mixing up what they're putting down — in flooring trends, that is. To help make sense of it all, C & F Flooring and Rug Gallery broke down the latest styles that people can't get enough of.

 

Night & Day

Light and dark shades (espresso, blonde, honey, whites, grays) are classics in hardwoods. But even more interesting are the products that have both extremes, from espresso to blonde, all in one style. This high variation flooring will become even more prevalent in 2019.

 

Custom Finish

Additionally, homeowners are choosing more matte and oil finishes than ever before. Patterns are thriving with plenty of designers choosing herringbone and diagonal shapes, as well as mixed-width boards for a more custom look.

 

Made You Look

A big trend this year is “wood-looking” flooring with porcelain tile and luxury vinyl tile (LVT) that look like hardwood. Hardwoods have been the traditional flooring throughout homes for centuries, but families and pets are hard on their floors, and hardwood maintenance is hard work. Homeowners are increasingly looking for ways to achieve that wood look, but with the added benefits of water and moisture resistance, as well as durability.

Think Big

And the tiles just keep getting larger. While 12 x 24-inch tiles have dominated the market for some time, spaces are seeing more and more 24 x 48-inch tiles, especially in oversized rooms and outdoor spaces. 

 

Top It Off

On top of these hardwood, tile and LVT floors, designers are also using custom rugs to create the allure of comfort on what might otherwise feel a bit cold. The in-style fiber of choice for these rugs is wool or other natural fibers.

 

Warm It Up

While color pallets vary, homes are still seeing plenty of gray, but more and more the grays lean toward taupe grays that help bring in a greater range of warm tones. These neutrals come in all types of patterns from plush to tailored and traditional to modern.
