It’s hard to believe that March is right around the corner. Two months into the new year, we’ve seen some flooring trends carry over from last year and some new trends gaining popularity. In this post, we predict the top flooring trends of 2017.
Wood Flooring Trends of 2017
2017 is all about wood floors that make a statement. Here are some trends we’ve observed:
- Dark Stained Wood Floors – We often see this combined with bright white and cream colored furniture.
- Blonde Wood Floors – This trend comes with the rising popularity of green flooring options like bamboo, that are naturally light in color.
- Gray Wood Floors – This trend has been popular for a few years and is still going strong.
- Hand Scraped Wood Floors – This technique makes each floor plank textured in a unique way.
- Wire Brushed Wood Floors – This is a popular technique used to give wood a distressed look
- Matte Finishes – These days, homeowners are opting for matte or satin finished floors instead of glossy finishes.
- Satin Finishes – For those who prefer a bit of sheen, satin finishes are a compromise between matte and glossy.
- Green Flooring – Cork, bamboo, and reclaimed wood are some of the green choices popular among homeowners today.
Tile Flooring Trends of 2017
One trend we’ve seen a lot is tile that is made to look like other materials. New technology has made this a durable, less expensive alternative to other materials.
- Wood-Look Tile – This has been a popular choice for many years, and 2017 is no exception.
- Brick-Look Tile – Typically used as wall tile, brick-look has been making it’s way to floors more often this year.
- Marble-Look Tile – More durable and less expensive, it’s easy to see why marble-look tile is a popular option.
- Cement-Look, Fabric-Look, and Metallic-Look Tile – Yes, even these options are available and trending for some really unique home looks.
- Gray Tile – As with wood, gray is a popular color for tile as well.
- White & Espresso Tile – These are two more popular color choices for tile. They match the dramatic light and shade theme we’ve seen with wood floors.
