Flooring Trends for 2020
Every year brings new excitement in the flooring world and 2020 has gotten off to a bang! From waterproof hardwood and wood-look hard surfaces to patterned tile and patterned carpets, the industry is buzzing with the latest trends. The best part about all of these attractive new options? Each will uplift your home with performance and style while adding new or renewed life to your favorite rooms. Here’s a quick look at some of the hottest flooring trends for 2020:
Waterproof Hardwood – As we mentioned in our Best Flooring in a Home with Kids blog post, waterproof floors are in high demand everywhere, especially floors that capture the beauty of genuine wood. Waterproof technology innovation will prevent a gorgeous wood floor from warping or cracking from an accidental spill. Look for an engineered hardwood with seal protection that will allow you to wet-mop, backed by the manufacturer’s warranty!
Wood Look Surfaces – If you cherish the aesthetic of hardwood floors but wood is out of your budget, or maybe you need a resilient, quicker and cheaper to install option, 2020 will provide you plenty of dazzling choices. Wood-look laminate, LVT and tile options will all be tremendously popular as builders, designers, and homeowners capture rustic, coastal, and post-industrial vibes with these products. All of these options lend striking visual appeal while offering affordability, versatile installation, and waterproof performance. These surfaces are also better suited for active families with kids and pets than traditional hardwood is.
Patterned & Decorative Tile – Just as longer, wider wood planks have surged in popularity, larger sized tiles have also risen in sales as they make tile floors easier to install, easier to clean, more luxurious looking when finished, and retain home resale value better. In 2020 we will see these larger tiles receive big, bold patterns that catch the eye even more! Patterned tiles add dimension, color, and interest to spaces that need more life. In addition to the timeless performance that tile floors provide, decorative patterned tile creates an artistic element that cannot be denied.
Patterned Carpet – Everyone loves the warmth and softness that carpet brings to a home and in 2020, you will find more creative patterned carpet options to choose from. Patterned carpet not only adds visual interest and texture but can also help hide dirt and stains. From florals to animal prints, geometric patterns to carpet tile patterns, designers are no longer adhering to strictly one solid shade. If you opt for a patterned pop from your carpet, ultimately the room in question and the personality you want to achieve in it will determine how bold you choose to go!
