These days, designers and homeowners alike understand how important your flooring is when it comes to the overall aesthetics of your place. No longer do homeowners leave the decision to the designer or contractor. More often than not, they already have a fair idea of what they want. Great news! New flooring trends are here.
If you are having your home renovated, or you just want to update your flooring to give your space a fresh look, here are some trendy options for you:
Bamboo flooring is not exactly new. In fact, it has been around for quite a while now. What has changed, however, is how designers have played up the look of bamboo flooring, giving it an explosion of new styles and colours. Bamboo is as hard as most hardwoods, if not harder. There are strand-woven bamboo that is twice as hard as the traditional ones. Like other wood flooring though, it’s not advisable for kitchens, baths, and other moisture-prone rooms.
This is a perfect example of how the trend for flooring focuses on achieving classic looks with the use of new technology. Factory-made hardwood flooring delivers the charm that old reclaimed timber offers. It even has that classic hand-hewn appearance! The better news though, has to be its relatively cheaper cost. Factory-made wood also resists moisture fluctuations better.
Concrete flooring has been overlooked for residential flooring purposes, as its humble aesthetics tend to give way to the flare and vibrant appearance of other flooring options. Now it has come back and offers a unique utilitarian chic appeal that is unique to it. It is both trendy and durable. It now comes in a variety of colours, finishes, and textures that it can definitely adapt to any style and décor at home. However, some advice that you consider the comfort factor too, as it is not that friendly to walk on for hours.
CUT AND LOOP CARPET
When it comes to carpets, we often see fewer shags and more patterned ones. Now there’s a technique that mixes the best of both loops and cut loops to create patterns that can range from muted and subtle to bold and loud. New technology has also brought us softer fibers for carpets and with better carpet pads too, using high-quality dense rubber instead of loose fiber!
