Flooring Trends for 2020

February 28, 2020

If you’re looking at your old flooring and thinking it might be time to replace it, you might wonder what you should replace it with. Do you want the same look? A new idea? 


Looking at flooring trends can help you decide. You can see what’s current and consider whether those options are appealing to you. There is a variety of popular flooring for 2020 – some have been popular for a few years, and others are just coming into style.


Here are some ideas for what floor to choose!


Wood Flooring Trends

Hardwood floors – or a material that looks like hardwood – have that show-stopping ability to catch the eye and make a home look incredibly elegant. A lot of people absolutely love the idea of hardwood floors.


It’s one of those types of flooring that will always be popular, too, so you don’t have to worry about investing in flooring and then having trouble selling your home.


Actual hardwood can be challenging to care for, so you might consider a wood-look flooring that’s more durable and easier to manage. Laminate and vinyl are common alternatives that look just as stunning.


Kitchen Flooring Trends

Kitchen flooring used to be nothing but tile or vinyl, but those days are long gone. Today you can have any kind of flooring you like in the heart of your home.


Wood-look flooring is – surprisingly – just as popular in the kitchen as in any other room of the house. Actual hardwood may be too delicate and fussy for a well-used kitchen, but with today’s technology you can get lookalikes that will fool almost everyone.


Another great option in the kitchen is waterproof vinyl flooring. A kitchen is prone to heat, spills, dish breakage, and more – which is why durability is a must. 


If you are going for a more modern or industrial look, consider stained concrete. The material is mixed, poured, and polished by hand and can provide a beautiful, durable surface to walk, clean, and cook on.


Bathroom Flooring Trends

In the bathroom, marble-look porcelain tiles are the new it-factor. It’s extremely realistic compared to normal marble, but costs a fraction of the price. You also don’t have to worry about difficult marble upkeep, either.


If you want a beautiful floor in your bathroom, marble-look tile is a great option. Another idea would be terrazzo, and “old but new again” floor that is made from glass, stone, and other fragments embedded in concrete and polished smooth. 


Terrazzo is an environmentally responsible option as well, which is important to many homeowners today. You can even choose to get terrazzo tiles instead of a traditional poured floor to save money.


Finally, large-scale tiles are very popular in both bathrooms and kitchens. The scale helps the room look larger, and the reduced number of grout lines makes the surface much easier to clean than traditional tile. You can get tiles from 12X12 inches up to 40X120 inches.


Slip-Resistant Flooring

As more and more Americans choose to age in their own homes, for comfort, cost, and safety reasons, flooring becomes a key factor. It’s important to avoid falls, and that means using slip-resistant flooring.


The good news is that you can get a variety of floor colors and patterns in slip-resistant vinyl or linoleum, and these materials are also less expensive. You can even get easy-care carpet that is water-resistant, and there are a variety of colors and textures available.


When considering what floor to choose, don’t forget to think about safety!
