Top Flooring Trends for 2021

June 2, 2021

Keep your home up to date with all today’s latest trends in flooring for stylish and practical living options. A brand new floor can majorly impact a room and your family’s living space. With so many flooring possibilities you can achieve any kind of desired look no matter your budget.

Go Green

Environment-friendly flooring options that are made from natural, renewable, and recyclable materials are getting more popular. It is cost-competitive to choose eco-friendly flooring when your old floors need upgrading. An eco-friendly home is only going to be more desirable over time as home buyers seek out greener homes.

Natural linoleum floors are hypo-allergenic and biodegradable, while cork and bamboo are excellent alternatives to solid hardwood flooring. Both cork and bamboo are highly renewable. Cork also has insulation value; it is antibacterial and is fire resistant.

If you still want solid hardwood flooring, try reclaimed wood. Oak and old growth pine are some of the more popular reclaimed wood varieties you will find. Always try to recycle any raw materials like logs and timbers from old buildings can be milled and used again.

Another renewable flooring option is concrete, which has started to become a popular choice for kitchen countertops and as flooring option which should easily last a lifetime.

Waterproof Flooring

Waterproof Wonders

Everyone wants a beautiful, low-maintenance floor that resists water damage. There are waterproof options for vinyl, laminate, engineered hardwood, and even carpet. This affordable flooring will soon be a trend of the future for decades to come due to its convenience of repelling moisture. Ideal for bathrooms!

Flooring Trends - Ceramic Tiles

Ceramic Tiles

Large, glossy ceramic tiles are very popular. The marble look is sleek and sophisticated. We’re also seeing a lot of neutral and light tones being used throughout the kitchen and living room areas. These tiles will instantly modernize the look of your space. Statement rugs work well with this glossy flooring.

Statement Carpets

Incorporate a bold, textured rug into your décor. They look great over monochrome glossy tiles or any hardwood styles. This is a great opportunity to add colour and life to any room. Plus, it’s simple enough to switch it up when you’re ready for a new look!

Flooring Trends - Fun Layouts

Flooring Trends - Colours and Textures

Colours and Textures

This year’s trending flooring colours include whitewashed, gray, light brown, two-tone combinations, and darker cool shades.

Gray flooring looks chic and trendy in contemporary spaces. The cool tone gives you a neutral backdrop for decorating with virtually any colour. Gray flooring, particularly gray wood, has grown exponentially over the last decade. Although gray tiles, particularly in stone looks, are also very popular.

More homeowners are embracing the light, airy feel in their homes, you will see a huge resurgence in blonde wood (and wood-look) floors. Blonde flooring can give you that light, timeless feel. Meanwhile, white flooring will make your home look brighter, bigger, and more relaxed.

Texture has played a significant role in 2021 flooring trends. Higher colour variations create a more natural, rustic look. The inconsistent colours replicate effects in nature like stone and wood that aren’t uniform. The more texture the better.

The timeless hardwood flooring isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. As a go-to classic, it is still trending along with the other newer options.

Flooring Trends - DIY
