Latest Flooring Trends

What’s underfoot is just as important

We spend a lot of time painting, wallpapering and hanging art on our walls, but we shouldn’t neglect our floors. Designers now recommend you consider the floor the “fifth wall” in your room. When it comes to kitchens, foyers, bathrooms and laundry rooms, experts recommend installing a flooring material that can handle a lot of foot traffic, such as tile or hardwood.

Both functional and aesthetically pleasing, tile flooring provides homeowners with endless opportunities for creativity. Available in an amazing variety of sizes, shapes, textures and colors, tile flooring can easily match or enhance any area of your home.

If you are looking for a natural, texturized look, consider hardwood flooring. From the more popular choices such as red oak and walnut to more exotic choices like Brazilian cherry or Jatoba, we have plenty of photos of different wood species to help you narrow down your search.

Other flooring options include area rugs and carpeting. Adding the right area rug is a perfect way to incorporate color and interior to a room. Carpeting is available in a plethora of colors and patterns. Of all the carpet fiber types, nylon represents two-thirds of all the carpet flooring made due to its wear-resistance and resiliency. If you are partial to natural fiber, consider wool carpeting. Search “flooring” for even more ideas to help you select what’s underfoot.
