Flooring Trends for 2021
If the unpredictable year 2020 reminded homeowners of any important lessons, it is the value of an inspired interior when it comes to maximizing our space with the whole family home and spending an increased amount of time indoors! With the new year upon us, now is the perfect time to use the excitement of the months ahead to bring your refresh and remodel ideas to life. Are you already leaning towards a favorite flooring option or design style? Here are a few inspired 2021 flooring trends that are worth your consideration.
Hardwood Stains & Tones – It’s no surprise that gorgeous hardwood flooring options will continue to thrive in 2021, but we will see a preference for cool, darker wood tones like this American OEM Hickory in color Honor (below), as well as the opposite lighter-toned end of the spectrum.
Gray Can Save the Day – No matter what your favorite hard-surface flooring option is, you may find yourself following the lead of interior designers everywhere this year by going gray! Whether you love a wood-look tile like Dal-Tile Emblem or a Luxury vinyl plank such as Southwind Timeless Plank in color Tavern (below), gray and greige variations will continue to rise for a hip, easy-to-style neutral shade that still showcases attractive characteristics of the flooring type.
Patterned Paradise – Geometric patterns and large format patterned tiles (below) have been thriving in recent years, and we will continue to see the creative use of patterns in finished floors throughout 2021. Installations that utilize chevron, herringbone, parquet, and other creative layouts will become increasingly in-demand as homeowners strive to create a design refresh that is full of life and visual interest.
Inviting Carpet Texture – Just like distinctive wood textures are prized for highlighting attractive graining and markings, homeowners are leaning towards fabulous carpet options that are full of character as well! Friezes, Berbers, and other cut-and-loop carpets are full of charm and eye-catching appeal without overwhelming a space and still provide the gentle softness that everyone loves to feel underfoot. A plush style such as DreamWeaver Stunning in Porcelain (below) features a higher face-weight for texture that’s as engaging as it is comforting.
