Trends in Home Flooring
When you are doing renovations to any room in your house, the flooring you choose can make or break your decor. Whether in the kitchen, bedroom, or living areas, the flooring can help create a comfortable and inviting atmosphere. Here are some very popular choices for flooring to consider when you are doing your home renovations: Bamboo Anything eco-friendly has been growing in popularity and will likely continue to be popular for a long time. Bamboo is one of the favorite choices for environmentally-friendly building material, and makes excellent flooring. The light wood offers a bright and clean look to any room. Best of all, bamboo comes from a sustainable source, so you are contributing to a happier, healthier earth as well as your home. Repurposed Wood Another environmentally friendly and super trendy choice for flooring is repurposed wood. This flooring has a chic rustic look and looks great throughout the home. Repurposed wood flooring looks somewhat like hardwood, but has a more rustic flair and a bit more character. Even better, using repurposed flooring comes with a free story to tell visitors. Hardwood Speaking of hardwood, it never goes out of style. Hardwood is absolutely classic and always looks great in any situation. Not only is it beautiful, but it is practical as well. The only thing that tends to change regarding trends for hardwood is the colors. Right now darker wood and grays are the most popular. Concrete An industrial look is another trend that has proven to be not just another passing craze. An industrial-looking floor and appliances with soft, chic adornments is absolutely trendy and the contrasting styles go so well together. Concrete flooring might sound like an odd choice, but it is very popular. Of course, concrete flooring doesn't look anything like the floor in a parking lot like you might think. Instead, concrete floors are poured and then shined to a polished sheen and can easily be painted if desired. Concrete flooring is ultrachic, very practical, and extremely cost effective. New Laminate Options For renovators on a budget, there are a lot of new laminate options available. Unlike the laminate flooring of the past, these new laminate flooring options look very much like the real thing. Hardwood laminates, tile laminates, and more are now easily obtained and even easier to install. Not only can they save you tons of money, but they also look amazing. The flooring throughout your home is a vital part of your decor as well as the part of the home you touch the most. Think of it like your skin, it is the largest organ of the body and what people see of you first. You want it looking great. A good-looking floor is the stage for the rest of your home, and therefore sets the scene for your decor scheme. A great floor should be comfortable, practical, and beautiful. With any of these flooring trends, you can have your home updated and looking perfect in no time at all.
