Man caves and entertainment spaces, are often in finished basements, game rooms or garages which can be prone to moisture. Most flooring that you'd use in the main living area of your home can work in this space, but being conscious of possible moisture exposure can help you make the best choice. It is very important to ensure that the foundation is correctly sealed before fitting the final flooring type.

 

Luxury vinyl tiles and planks (LVT/LVP) could be a great option for your man cave. LVT is available in a number of designs including incredibly realistic stone looks and LVP is available in many wood looks from natural to distressed planks. Luxury Vinyl can stand up to moisture and is great in an area prone to spills. Ceramic tile is also a good option but would be a bit colder under your feet than LVT or LVP. Engineered hardwood can be installed on foundations, but if temperature shifts and moisture are a serious concern, LVT and LVP may be a more durable choice.

 

If moisture is not an issue for you, then the options are wide spread. You can use hardwood, plush carpet or anything in between. When choosing these types of flooring, it is important to use a high quality underlayment to combat moisture and maximize warmth, comfort and soundproofing. There are endless ways to turn your underused space into the ultimate entertainment room and be ready for the game in no time.

Styles come and go, and flooring is no exception. The right flooring creates the perfect base for any room and can serve as a focal point to your decor. Here are some trends for the New Year that will be sure to work for your home.

 

Hyper Natural

This relates to wood styles that flaunt the natural imperfections and grain character of the raw material.

 

Gray

This is not a fad color, but the new neutral with customer appeal that will continue for many years. Due to it’s ability to be paired with bold accent colors, any space can be transformed and given the appropriate amount of color.

 

Reclaimed

This flooring refers to a distressed appearance with signs of wear and aging. It is a timeworn aesthetic that hinges on a weathered look and also advocates the mixing of varied woods and tiles.

 

Mixed-width formats

In line with the trend for reclaimed flooring styles comes an interest in incorporating a mix of plank widths across a floor.

 

Dark and blonde wood

Both dark and blonde wood tones are currently trending and will continue for several more years. The deep tones of walnut give a glamorous heritage look, while blonde tones of oak, maple and ash appeal to customers looking to achieve a more modern look.

 

Parquet

The classic herringbone and chevron layouts will be a favorite, as will tessellation patterns and bold geometrics.
