Are new floors on your holiday wish list this year? As we look ahead to 2015, builders and designers are trying to predict what will be “hot,” so they can advise their clients about the top choices for their own floor buying needs. As you look ahead to 2015, here are some holiday trends to consider asking Santa for if you plan to update your home’s flooring.
From wood to tile, gray is all the rage this coming year. This color gives your space a contemporary appearance. The added benefit of using a neutral coloring for your floors means you can do just about any decor option you choose. When considering the color of your new floors, don’t neglect to consider gray.
Unique Woods Stay Popular
Using unique woods, or capturing the look of unique woods in laminate, has been another trend that designers believe will be strong in 2014. Woods like Brazilian walnut, for example, add character to the space with their intricate grains and textures. Add a non-traditional color to these woods, and your flooring can be quite unique and attention-grabbing.
Bamboo Flooring Lets You Go Green
Bamboo is one of the most sustainable flooring materials in the industry, and in light of ongoing pushes to “go green,” it’s no wonder that this flooring option remains a popular one. Bamboo comes in a range of colors and styles, so you can easily find something you like if you shop exclusively with bamboo, and you can shop confidently knowing that your choice will have a limited impact on the environment.
Classic Floors Remain Popular
Of course, classic hardwood in the woods you are well familiar with, like oak and maple, remain a popular and attractive choice. Many people are opting to go with these to keep their home timeless, and in 2015 designers expect this trend to continue.
Matte Finish Offers More Durability
In 2015, don’t be surprised if matte finish becomes the finish of choice for hardwood and laminate floors, and even tile. Removing the shiny surface means that the floors show fewer scuffs and scratches, and the low-gloss finish feels warm and inviting. For families, this low-maintenance option is particularly popular.
