Flooring Trends for 2021


Durable Flooring for Your Full House

As we ring in the New Year, we have high hopes for a happy, healthy 2021 filled with less social distancing and more hugs for grandma. Fingers crossed we’ll get there soon, but in the meanwhile, it might be time for a few home improvements. We deserve it. Not sure where to start? Check out these trends for 2021.

Low Maintenance 

We have got enough to think about, we don’t need to worry about our floors too. 2021 is all about durable, low-maintenance floors. Luckily, we don’t have to sacrifice style in the process. Luxury vinyl flooring remains a top choice in 2021 with its variety of styles to mimic the look of natural stone and hardwoods.

Tile is also stealing the spotlight these days, especially in large-format sizes and unique shapes. Advancements in printing technology allow us to be more creative than ever with low-maintenance tile. Marble-look porcelain styles are an affordable and durable choice, along with concrete-look tiles for a chic, modern aesthetic without the chic price tag.

Light and Bright 

We are all hoping for a light and bright 2021 and that sentiment is reflected in the increasing popularity of lighter shades in flooring. As more homeowners embrace a lighter, casual and airy feel in their homes we will see a huge resurgence in lighter wood and wood-look flooring. 

Tons of Texture

A mix of different textures will add dimension to your space, creating that layered lived-in look that makes a house a home. A matte-finish tile feels like a fresh update from the glossy looks of years past and pairs well with the rustic look of hand-scraped wood flooring. Textured carpet combines comfort with style and never fails to make a room feel extra cozy.
