COREtec Flooring

The patented core structure makes COREtec the original 100% waterproof, kid-proof, pet-proof flooring by providing more rigidity, stability and comfort than glue down LVT, solid locking LVT, or laminate flooring. COREtec planks won’t warp or buckle no matter how wet they get. In other words, they can handle a lot more than daily spills and muddy footprints. The perfect floor for an active home.

Porcelain Planks

These are porcelain planks that are designed to mimic natural wood grains. Porcelain planks (tiles) are an attractive and durable floor trend. And they allow you to use wood-look flooring in the bathroom or other space prone to dampness.

Grey Wood Flooring

Grey wood floors are increasingly common and are a 2018 floor trend. It is a neutral color choice that compliments an array of design styles. While grey hardwood floors tend to pair best with cool, modern designs, you can also bring warmth to any space with accent colors and natural wood decor. They provide a unique, clean look that fits well in modern houses that need to brighten up.

Wide and Long Plank Floor Trends

Wood flooring remains very popular, but trends are pushing toward wider plank floors. With floor trends boards often 7 inches wide and up to 7 feet in length. This works well for cabin styles, but can lend a mature, authentic look to many different home styles.

Carpet Tiles

Combine traditional carpet and tiling together, and you get a floor trend carpeting option that’s easy to install. And it allows for many great designs or geometric patterns. So it’s no wonder modular carpet tile is a growing alternative to traditional carpeting.

Distressed Plank Flooring

Distressed wood planks have many good qualities. They’re often eco-friendly, reclaimed wood materials. And they make an ideal floor trend fit for both modern and farm-style houses. However, they tend to be quite expensive. Reclaimed hardwood planks may be a trend and a cool feature in your home, just be sure to have your floor installed by a professional. The gaps can be tricky.

Recycled Carpet

In Milan for fashion week, models and celebrities traded in the traditional red carpet for a “green” carpet! And recycled carpets made from regenerated nylon and recycled plastic bottles are now an available floor trend. Carpets are made from stain-resistant and eco-friendly materials, in many different pile designs from thick living room carpet to more utilitarian versions. Mohawk has taken material such as plastic bottles, and recycled them into fibers for carpet.

Cork

Cork flooring is eco-friendly, springy, and offers an interesting, pulp-like wood pattern. It’s also quite affordable, making it an increasingly common choice floor trend for homeowners. However, durability may be a problem in homes with pets or children.
