Bay Area Flooring: 2018 Trends
As the end of 2017 approaches, many customers are asking what to expect for 2018. The style changes that started in the latter half of this year are going to accelerate.
One of the biggest concerns families have is how to ensure their flooring looks good with all the stresses it’s put through. Water damage is one of the most common concerns. What if your child spills some water or juice, could this discolor your carpet or hardwood? You don’t want to have to deal with having to replace flooring or pay for a professional cleaning. Flooring companies have heard these concerns and are finding solutions. More and more flooring is becoming waterproof or substantially liquid resistant. You’re not having to sacrifice looks for getting this degree of comfort anymore. Form and function can co-exist.
Beyond the liquid damage concerns, dents are another worry when it comes to hardwoods and traditional vinyl tile. While the technology is fairly new, many companies are developing flooring that can withstand more pressure to protect against those little or big kids having accidents.
Going beyond traditional looks and colors has been getting more and more popular each year. All major manufacturers are coming out with flooring that has more texture and personality than older styles. Companies are doing this through the materials used, designs created, and using multiple colors within the same flooring. Gone are the days where homeowners pick only one solid color and that’s it. Whether it’s getting original flooring with personality or adding area rugs to some beautiful flooring, individuals and families will continue to personalize their homes to better meet their preferences.
A new look that began in 2017 and will expand in 2018 flooring trends is the growth of grays. More homes are finding this as a good alternative to brown woods to create a modern feel. This may, at first, seem to go counter to the texture trend. They’re actually symbiotic as many of these grays are being accented by multi-colored rugs or other colors within the home to bring your personality out.
