Parquet hardwood floors in White Bear Lake

1. Unique Patterns & Eye-Catching Geometric Designs

Admittedly, wood flooring has been trending for some time, but 2018 has brought with it some interesting design changes when it comes to wood flooring. For example, parquet wood floors arranged in unique patterns or geometric designs are trending big time this year. The interesting layout is a great way to draw attention to the natural beauty and richness of the wood floor. No need to purchase a large rug with this trend either – you’ll want to show this floor off.

2. A Push Towards Alternative Materials

Flooring manufacturers have become increasingly creative about using certain materials to mimic other materials. For example, porcelain tiles that look like wood planks – an innovation that allows you to get the hardwood look in spaces like bathrooms, where traditional wood would be vulnerable to warping and rot. Cork is another trending floor material option. Not only is it an eco-friendly alternative to hardwood, cork offers a unique look and comfortable feel.

3. Not the Same Old Carpet Options

Carpet tiles are a trending floor option that combines the feel of carpet with the design options of tile. With carpet tiles, you can create designs and shapes with your carpet, use more than one color of carpeting, and easily switch out areas of your floor as needed.

The flooring styles listed above are just a few of the many options you can expect to see trending in 2018. To learn more or see these flooring products for yourself, call and schedule a free consultation with Floor Coverings International White Bear Lake!
