Have you considered updating your flooring in 2018?

Flooring trends can change over the years as tastes change and technologies evolve, but there are always classic staples to consider. When it comes to hardwood flooring, there is a lot out there to choose from. Choosing something with the right look and benefits at the right price point can seem to be an impossible decision to make. If you are looking for something on trend and inspired, read on to better understand some trendy flooring options.  

Fumed Wood Flooring

Almost all wood undergoes staining to achieve a strong final color and finish. Wood that has been fumed goes through an entirely different process. In this process, wood is put in a chamber with airborne ammonia. The wood then reacts and its color changes. This process generally gives the wood rich and dark tones that luxuriously enhance its natural grain. Those who prefer the glamor of dark wood often favor this type of flooring.

Bleached Woods

While hardwood flooring is often known for its dark glossy tones, some people prefer their flooring a little lighter.  Bleaching and blanching floors give them an ashy white look while leaving their grain clearly visible.

Distressed Flooring

In spaces meant to have a rustic appeal, artificially aged floors are the perfect thing. This flooring may have a slightly worn finish, but it is every bit as strong as newly laid flooring should be.  Many homeowners are looking for options to traditionally expensive and high maintenance hardwood flooring and instead are opting for distressed concrete instead.

Textured Tiles

While tiles are often known for their shining and smooth surface, a new type of tile is taking the interior design world by storm. Textured tiles are designed to mimic other materials in look and feel to a T. They can even be created to mimic hardwood flooring perfectly. Porcelain tiles can be used to create a wide variety of looks.

Reclaimed Barn Wood Flooring

Faux wood tiles as flooring took off as a flooring trend in 2016 and are back in 2018 with a vintage look. Technology has become so exact that tile can be given the exact classic look of rich and refined hardwood. This makes it almost impossible to tell the difference between the two type of flooring at a glance. Faux tile offers that classy and ideal look while being less expensive and lower maintenance.
