Fall 2022 Flooring Trends
Fall is a popular time of year for home upgrades. The Holiday season is set to start in just a couple of months, and you want your home to look and feel its best. Your floors play a big part in creating the right atmosphere. Whether your goal is simplicity, elegance, function or dramatic style, there’s a flooring option that’s right for you. These are some of the trends that have taken the flooring industry by storm this year.
Hardwood Flooring Trends
You can’t talk about flooring without mentioning hardwoods. The new trends add some interesting takes on this traditional choice.
- Bold Colors – Bold colors mean bold statements. Choosing custom colors like dark shades of green, blue and purple can really make your floors stand out.
- Chevron and Herringbone Patterns – These classic patterns are sure to add a touch of sophistication to any space.
- Wide Planks – Wider planks are in. Wood planks that average between six and twelve inches in width create fewer seams, giving your space a clean look. This style is great for more of a traditional or rustic feel. They can make larger spaces, like living rooms and dining rooms, appear more open and airy.
- Dark & Rich Colors - Darker hardwoods create the perfect, cozy atmosphere. Popular choices include black, brown and gray, but you can also just stain your existing hardwood floors to a darker color.
Over the past few years, luxury vinyl planks (LVP) and luxury vinyl tile (LVT) have become popular flooring choices. With a look similar to hardwood, they offer a superior level of durability at a more affordable cost. They are easy-to-install, easy-to-clean, and are scratch and water-resistant.
The quality of laminate has steadily increased over the past few years. Today’s laminate products offer the practicality of being fully waterproof and scratch resistant. They are designed to imitate the look of hardwood but stand up much better to the wear and tear of busy spaces. One of the best features of this flooring is how easy it is to clean. All you need is a vacuum cleaner, broom and a damp mop to keep your laminate floors clean.
