Trends to inspire your next floor project

by Thomas Gilmore 07/17/2022

If you’re interested in bringing your interior design skills to the cutting edge, consider the latest trends in flooring for your next floor project. While it’s common to replace or refurbish floors due to necessity, changing the aesthetics of the floor can impact the entire space. If you’re planning a floor project, here are some of the top trends from design experts to consider:

Black floors

Using black floors in a design can be divisive, but there’s no question about the bold statement black floors can make in a space. Black floors work well in contemporary designed spaces and floor projects where black is otherwise used as an accent for contrast.

Black floors are also perfect for an art deco styled space, especially with luxurious high-shine finishes. You can explore this trend with tile flooring, luxury vinyl plank flooring or wood flooring. No matter which direction you plan to take your design, black flooring is a trendy option for a floor project.

Bamboo floors

Bamboo has been a favorite building material among designers for a while, but bamboo flooring in particular has never been a hotter trend. Bamboo is well-loved for being eco-friendly and durable. Many homeowners choose bamboo because it can have the same aesthetic appeal as hardwood floors at a much lower cost. Whether it’s to be on-trend or simply to improve sustainability, consider high-quality bamboo for your DIY flooring project.

Cork floors

Though a more recent trend in flooring materials, cork is an excellent option to consider for your floor project. Similarly to bamboo, cork is a sustainable building material with very little waste. It’s less expensive than wood floors and easier to maintain, but the most popular aspect of cork is the texture.

Cork is soft, comfortable and an exceptional shock absorber. The unique texture makes cork a trendy choice for kitchen floors, bathroom floors and commercial spaces.

Trends are constantly changing, and ultimately, your choice of flooring is your preference. However, if you’re interested in the latest interior design trends, consider these options for your next floor project at home.
