Tile flooring is a classic mainstay. It lasts for decades when installed correctly, and resists water damage. A current trend in tile is marble-looking tiles that are affordable, but not cheap.
Other tile manufacturers are getting creative with their designs. Arabesque, fan, and hexagonal tiles are easy to find from suppliers, and are very popular in homes this year. A huge tile flooring trend in 2022 is Moroccan style tiles. They are making their way into more and more homes.
Laminate has been a very popular choice and that flooring trend is not changing in 2022. However, wide-plank laminate is becoming more and more popular each year. People choose laminate flooring because it is cost effective. Homeowners don’t have to demolish the old floor. Just float a new laminate floor over the old one. In addition to saving the cost of demo, laminate has the look and feel of hardwood, making it a popular flooring trend in 2022.
More homeowners are looking for eco-friendly building materials, but still want gorgeous, natural flooring. Bamboo is the perfect solution for these two needs. It has the look and feel of hardwood, but bamboo grows back much faster than oak or hickory. It is the perfect balance of a sustainable material with great looks, and durability. Choose a stone polymer composite core bamboo flooring for high water resistance to install a nice, warm, natural look in your bathroom without worrying about moisture. Bamboo flooring comes in a click in place style with acoustic underlayment already attached. It is very easy to install, beautiful, and functional. We covered bamboo flooring more in depth here.
Gray stains on hardwood flooring are being installed in more homes than ever. This color choice offers a lot of versatility with paint color choices, and furnishings. The cool color opens rooms up, and will match nearly any color scheme. Just avoid painting the walls gray as well and you will create a gorgeous space.
