This Years Top Trends In Flooring Design

Flooring trends change throughout the years as homeowners acquire new tastes and technology allows a larger variety of flooring designs for their remodeling projects. This year homeowners are looking for more of a twist on flooring with a unique aesthetic that catches the eye and gives their home a more exotic and luxurious look. Some of the 2019 trends you might find familiar, others you might be surprised by. Check out this list of popular flooring trends for the new year and consider how you may be able to utilize them in your home!

Trend #1: Fumed Wood Flooring – Stronger Color & Grain

Almost all types of wood flooring undergo some kind of staining to give them the desired final finish. Fumed wood flooring gets its rich color and grain without having to get any sort of staining. Instead, the wood is put through a process called fuming.  This involves placing the wood in a chamber where airborne ammonia is then released. The wood reacts with the ammonia and undergoes a color change. The reaction does not always result in the exact same changes. The final patina achieved depends on a number of factors including the type of wood, the outside environment and the atmosphere in the chamber itself. Generally, however, fuming gives the wood rich dark tones and enhances the natural grain of the wood. Get a Quote

Trend #2: Bleached & Blanched Woods

Not everyone likes the glossy brown stains of most wooden floors. For some, the softer white-washed look of a bleached floor is more their taste. This kind of flooring consists of wood that has undergone a bleaching process, also called blanching.

This involves applying a chemical solution onto surface of the wood to get rid of the “color”. Blanching gives the wood an ashy white-washed look with the natural wood grain still being clearly visible from underneath. This allows the charm and beauty of natural wood to come through in more subtle tone. Get a Quote

Trend #3: Distressed Wood & Concrete Tiles

The distressed floor style has been around for quite a while but has seen a resurgence in 2019. Next year, expect to see more homeowners opt for that luxury aged look in their flooring. Distressed flooringundergoes artificial aging and styling processes that give it a slightly worn finish. It works best for spaces where a beautiful rustic look is desired.  In preparing distressed wood flooring, various actions are taken depending on the degree and style of “distress” desired. The edges of each wood plank are hand scraped, swirl and kerf markings are added to imitate historic wood and the planks are brushed to remove glossing and give them a soft worn texture.

Trend #4: Vintage Black & White

Vintage has always been about nostalgia, bringing back the warmth and memories of decades past. In 2019, one of the trends is the classic black and white tiles that are making a strong comeback. It’s not the same old black and white tiles that adorn historic homes. Instead, it’s bold, graphic, and more luxurious.  More and more homeowners want a unique twist to the vintage flooring style. This includes smaller tiles with bolder graphic patterns. This perfectly blends vintage with contemporary for the perfect look and feel. Get a Quote
