With 2019 in full swing and beautiful summer weather here to stay, you may be thinking that your floors are due for an upgrade. Updated flooring is a great way to refresh your home to match your lifestyle and décor. Here are our favorite flooring trends of 2019 to help you get your summertime renovations underway!
1. Fumed Wood Flooring
This unique and aged-look flooring is growing in popularity. When treated with fumed ammonia, the color and grain of wood intensify to offer a dramatic and rustic feel. Get the look by checking out flooring with a deep grain and rich color. Have you always wanted a bright kitchen with a modern farmhouse style? This look may be perfect for you!
2. Unique Patterns for Wood Floors
While wood will never go out of style, you can embrace unique patterns and placements to give your flooring a refreshed look. Chevron or herringbone layouts are becoming particularly popular and are a great way to create a custom look for your living room or dining room.
3. Vintage Black and White Tile
With vintage style on a serious resurgence, it’s no surprise that flooring is keeping up with the trend. Black and white tiles first made their appearance in the 1920s Arts and Crafts era but have always found their place in modern designs. Embrace tile and take a look at some black and white Victorian-inspired patterns. This is an amazing way to add your style and personality to a bathroom or custom kitchen. Starting with the black and white palette, complete the look with your own pop of color in the décor.
4. Rugs with Personality
Minimalism and Scandinavian inspired designs are having a big moment this year and we are seeing a lot of whites, blacks and greys with mixed metals. This style is a great canvas for some of the coolest rugs you can find. You can play with texture like high pile or fringe or with geometric shapes. If you are looking to really make a splash, take a look at overdyed patterns to create a vibrant color scheme.
5. Carpet: The Comeback Kid
In recent years, wood and vinyl have been stealing the spotlight from the long beloved carpeting. Well, carpet is having its turn again this year as we start to see a resurgence in this simple, comfortable style. Much like playing with different area rugs, you can get inspired by rooms of carpeting in fun, bright colors. Let a bright, fuzzy carpet greet your toes in the morning and get your day started in the right direction!
