With style and fashion there tends to be a cyclical pattern.  If you wait long enough things will go back in style once again.  Over the years there have been some bold flooring trends such as green shag carpet, orange and yellow linoleum, and area rugs shaped like a flower. However, there are some flooring options that will adapt nicely to changing home décor trends.  Here are Floor Coverings International of White Bear Lake’s Top Three Timeless Floors:

Neutral Tone Carpeting 

Carpeting that is properly cared for can last for quite some time.  If you make the effort to not wear shoes inside, get the carpet steam cleaned once a year, and vacuum regularly, your carpet will look great for many years to come. To make sure you’re happy with your carpeting choice many years down the road, make sure to keep it simple. Choosing neutral, solid colors will give you a good chance of staying in style longer.  Remember you can always add pizazz with things like throw pillows, blankets, rugs, artwork, furniture pieces, and lighting.  Keeping the carpet simple will allow it to be fashionable now and in the future.

Tile and Stone

Tile and stone are some of the most durable flooring options out there. The versatility allows them to be used in the bathroom, kitchen, living room and hallways. Tile flooring has been used for thousands of years.  In ancient Egypt, Turkey, and Greece, tile was a popular flooring option.  The material radiates light and helps to brighten every room.  Over the years, not much has changed.  Tile and natural stone are still popular options that improve your home.  From beautiful polished marble, to rustic slate, stone flooring will not be going out of style anytime soon. 


Hardwood floors are always sought after and they are an excellent choice for nearly any room in your home.  With so many species available, you can achieve the desired look for every room.
Rich Mahogany, bright Ash, elegant Cherry, and classic Maple hardwood floors are always in style.  Hardwood can be accessorized with area rugs to add some cushion, or it is beautiful on its
own. Over time hardwood floors will require some routine maintenance including possibly refinishing the floor.  Hardwood flooring remains a very popular timeless flooring option.
