With all the choices out there, finding the right flooring look and material for your budget can seem overwhelming. We have simplified your search, here are 5 hot floor-covering design trends for 2020 as we enter the new year.
1.Waterproof Flooring for 2020
This is a hot new floor-covering design trend for 2020 because the category has grown so much! Waterproof flooring is a very practical choice for busy families with pets and children that do not have time for flooring failures due to water or moisture. Today’s hot waterproof floor-covering design trends include materials that come in all sorts of varieties and price ranges:
- Vinyl flooring
- Laminate flooring
- Ceramic tile
- Engineered hardwood flooring
2. Eco-Friendly Floor Covering Design Trends
“Green”, or “eco-friendly”, flooring is so popular going into 2020 that almost all carpeting is now made from recycled materials. In fact, there are even recycled carpet tiles and area rugs! And, many of the eco-conscious customers that we work with at the Kiss Carpet Design Center are now choosing to install floor-covering products made with recycled materials.
3. Wood-Look Flooring Designs
One of the hottest floor-covering design trends for 2020 is wood-look floors. They have been gaining in popularity for several years now. That’s because the newer varieties look almost identical to natural wood, are moisture resistant and easier to care for. Whether your décor is traditional, modern, or something in between, you can now find wood-look flooring styles in ceramic, vinyl and laminate that tastefully introduce elegance and warmth into these rooms:
- Dining room
- Laundry room
- Living room
4. Textured Floor-Covering Trends
A design trend that’s piqued the interest of interior designers. It’s a versatile decorative element that mimics the luxurious look of classic hardwood without all the maintenance! Here are some creative ideas for using textured floors in your home:
Add a textured area rug to your space, they are an easy to change design element!
Porcelain tile is available in several patterns and textures to give your space an elegant feel.
Concrete-look laminate or ceramic flooring in an industrial décor is modern and bold!
Wire-brushed and hand-scraped flooring in various materials make your space look and feel rich.
Living “up north” surrounded by trees, combining textured wood-look flooring with large windows will breathtakingly pull in that natural beauty.
5. New Colors and Patterns for 2020
Adding colors and patterns to your room is one of the 5 hot floor-covering design trends for 2020. Although grey floor coverings are still quite popular, blonde and greige (grey + beige) are on the rise again. Lighter colors that make your space appear larger and brighter continue to be very popular. Classic looks like herringbone carpet are still in vogue, but more modern styles and patterns like chevrons and hexagons are starting to replace those. Try mixing colors, patterns, and textures to create a space that is unique to you!
