When choosing new flooring products for your home, office or business, it is always good to take notice of the current design trends in your area. Staying abreast of what’s in and what’s not can keep you from making poor design choices that don’t do much to improve your property’s appeal or resale value.
Here is a brief look at some of the hottest flooring trends:
The use of hardwood flooring has grown in popularity over the last few years. It is a trend that shows no signs of going away. Solid hardwood floors are timeless and can dramatically improve the value and look of any home for many decades to come. Engineered hardwoods provide much of the same benefit while offering increased versatility in installation options.

Dark Hardwood Floors and Tiles
Dark floors are increasingly popular, especially among the more lavish homes and properties. Dark colors help to add some coolness and a contemporary look to any room. Dark floors and tiles make a bold statement, but they do require a little more care and maintenance than regular colored floors because they show dirt, stains, and scratches more easily. When investing in hardwood flooring, we highly recommend purchasing a hardwood touch-up kit which will make treating small scratches and stains simple.

Gray and Neutral Colors
If you are looking to create a more dramatic and unexpected look in your home, gray and neutral colors are the perfect solution for you to use. Gray and neutral colors make great base colors and are less likely to overpower any other colors and styles you have in your home. By using these softer tones, it is easy to add complementary colors and accent furniture regardless of the season. Choosing grays and neutrals is a great way to update a space to a more contemporary style while remaining a safe choice for long-term style.
Reclaimed Wood Look
If you watch any home improvement show on TV today, odds are reclaimed wood will be featured. True reclaimed wood floors can make for beautiful flooring, but can also be quite expensive. There are many other ways to achieve this rustic look by utilizing products such as engineered hardwood or wood look tile. These options provide for a much more affordable way to create this stunning look.

Backsplashes come in stone, porcelain, and glass, and are very versatile flooring accessories to use to add a creative and unique flair to any room. Linear and mosaic design backsplashes are very popular and can add some depth and definition to any space, while subway tile is a classic choice. If you are looking to transform a kitchen, a backsplash is one of the most dramatic changes you can make at a relatively low cost.
