2019 is in full swing and as spring makes its debut, many homeowners want to refresh their home with a new look. New floors are a great place to start, and can instantly transform your space from outdated to trend-setting.
If you’re considering installing new, contemporary floors in your kitchen, bathroom, living room or other space, take a look at these five top flooring trends of 2019.
#1: Wood-Look Tile in the Bathroom
Wood-look porcelain tile floors have been a rising trend for years, making living spaces, kitchens and dining rooms warmer and more inviting. Now, wood-look tile is making its way into bathrooms for a unique blend of contemporary and rustic styles.
As a durable, easy-to-clean flooring option, it’s not only trendy but also practical for your bathroom. Wide plank tiles in a cool brown or whitewashed gray color, like Eramosa Carbon, are particularly popular for bathroom floors. If you’re concerned about a slick porcelain floor in your bathroom, look for faux-wood tile made with R11 Anti-Slip Finish.
#2: Large Format Tile
Oversized tiles pack an incredible punch of style and can even make a room appear bigger. Marble-look Themar, Pietra Italia porcelain and elegant Solto White marble are just a few tiles available in extra-large sizes. Keep in mind that large-format tile requires a flat, level surface in order to install properly.
#3: Dark & Light Floors
Both very dark and very light flooring are popular in 2019. Pale wood finishes, deep, rich stains and high-contrast looks are standing out among middle-of-the-road tones. Aim for flooring that creates interesting contrast against the room’s wall color, furniture finishes or upholstery.
Along with the trend toward these extremes of the color spectrum, we’re also seeing more interest in cool tones. For instance, many homeowners in 2019 prefer cool-toned wood-look floors in colors like pale gray and ash brown.
#4: Eye-Catching Mosaics
Any room instantly makes a statement when it features unique mosaic floor tile that sets it apart. Black and white hex tile or penny round tile is perfect for bathrooms and kitchens. A marble basketweave mosaic adds Old-World charm and detail, while a geometric pattern brings a decorative touch.
#5: Herringbone Floors
Transform a wood-look tile floor into something truly unique when you choose to install it in a contemporary herringbone pattern. Herringbone floors feature plank-shaped tiles arranged diagonally end-to-end to add texture, visual interest and a geometric quality to your space.
