Flooring trends for 2020 are all mostly about simpler options and economical solutions. Colours like grey and beige will be seen more often in combination with different home interior designs. The most loved thing about these colours is that they blend into almost all kinds of home décor and effortlessly enhance the beauty of the space. In addition to this, there are various other flooring trends that will be seen in 2020. These trends include:
Leather flooring isn’t really of 100 percent leather. The base of the floors is made using HDF and porcelain. Over the base rugged and leather is laid to create the finished product. However, as everyone is well-aware of the fact that leather isn’t suitable to be walked over all the time, so the finished product is covered with an additional layer of special varnish. This flooring is expected to gain more popularity in 2020 and will be seen more commonly in shades of brown.
Multiple layer, when combined, form the laminate flooring that will be seen more often in homes in the year 2020. Fibre board forms the base layer followed by a decorative coating. The final layer is the protective layer that helps the floor resist wear and tear. Each of the layer has its own purpose. The base layer is to protect the material from deformation. Laminate flooring will be gaining more popularity mainly because of its versatility and moisture resistance feature.
The traditional strip flooring isn’t going anywhere, but wide plank flooring is all set to become the market leader. Planks of 7 inches or more will be seen more commonly now installed in houses. People are now moving towards the idea of ‘the wider the better’ and thus wide planks are expected to be one of the top flooring trends of 2020.
Although dark colours were in for a while, in the coming year we will be seeing more shades of grey and beige as well as other lighter colours. Lighter-toned flooring will be overtaking dark-coloured floors in the year 2020. In addition, the blonde shade is going to make a huge splash. It is because blonde flooring combines well with just any kind of décor and interior styles, and also makes your room look more spacious.
Red and white oak are expected to remain the leaders as they account for most of the manufactured hardwood flooring. Oak is readily available and is very reasonably priced. Also, it is very versatile and can go well with almost any kind of interior style. Due to these reasons, oak floors will be gaining further popularity in the year 2020.
Along with wider planks, character-grade planks will also be seen in the market. People are obsessing over lightly textured floors and their obsession will continue to grow in the coming year. So you’ll be seeing wire-brushed and mineral steaks flooring more often in the year 2020.
Large tiles on both walls and floors have been trending for the past few years and this trend will continue in the year to come. The manufacturers are working on the range of styles and colours so we’ll be seeing a wider variety of large tiles in market next year.
Luxury vinyl tiles are still one of the top choices of homeowners who have a low budget and it will retain its position in the coming year as well. LVT come with benefits like easy installation and easier cleaning, which is why they are loved by home owners.
Wood looks never go out of style and the same is expected in the year 2020. Wood-looking floors in laminate, ceramic and vinyl tiles have been hot for many years now and their popularity will increase further in the years to come. Manufacturers are now working on making wood-like floors look more realistic and reliable, which is why more and more people are preferring these floors for their homes.
Homeowners today focus more on performance and quality, so it’s very important for the builders to work on what’s underneath the flooring. Due to this reason, the use of premium sub-floor products will continue to gain importance in the years to come.
