When it comes to trends and style, we want to make sure you’re getting a well-rounded opinion. Here’s a look at what other industry experts are anticipating in 2018:
” I always pick “trends” that I think will have longevity in the marketplace.Elongated tiles or planks have made a splash and are here to stay. Your best best is 6-8” wide and 24’-48” long. This size lends to a comfortable casual presentation. We all know that Grey is the new Beige and flooring colors are really showcasing that. Wood flooring has added the grey color by creating floors that have a “driftwood” appearance. Hardwood, or “hardwood looking” tiles in deep and medium tones have become very popular. Gone is yellow toned oak shades and cherry tones. Matte finish is in or a satin finish. Gone are the day of a high gloss floor. ” – Courtney Greger, My Flipping Job
“In 2018 we predict that there will be three main themes in the home décor arena: exploring the possibilities of innovative technologies, celebrating alternative and organic materials, and looking to make more personalized and unique designs. In flooring this will translate with a resurgence of eco-friendly materials such as marmoleum and cork, and the use of parquet style planks to achieve more personalized patterned flooring. For hardwood enthusiast the current trend for wider planks will continue, as well as using mixed width planks which give a less uniform, more individual feel.” – Jamie Sanford, Home Flooring Pros
In 2017, colours were all about extremes. Ultra dark, ultra light and not much in between. Except for every shade of gray. Gray is kinda special.
Going into 2018, those extremes are still holding strong. In fact, the lights are getting even more extreme with more white-washed, beachy looks.
But you’ll see some warmer, middle-of-the-road hardwood flooring ideas sneaking in, as well. Homeowners are increasingly using flooring to set the tone or feel of their home. That means, we need more options! And manufacturers are responding with more beautiful colours than ever before.
However, of course, not all of them are trending. Here are the best wood floor colours to stay trendy in 2018.
This trend carries over from 2017. Dark, rich colours look gorgeous and elegant, giving your room an expensive feel.
Dark wood floors are still going strong. You’ll see options in colours like espresso, Jacobean or dark walnut.
The downside to dark wood floors is they can make your room look smaller. You know how you (or some woman in your life) love that little black dress because it makes you look end-of-the-stomach-flu-skinny? Well, that’s because dark colours naturally make things smaller.
This is great for your wardrobe. But, maybe, not-so-great for your floor.
Additionally, dark wood is notorious for showing every scratch, speckle of dirt or imperfection. It’s the same reason we don’t drive black cars here in Arizona. They just don’t ever look clean.
Will the dark wood trend last in 2019 and beyond?
I don’t think so. Espresso wood has been trending for quite some time and I feel it is likely near the end of its lifecycle.
I predict that in the next 5 years or so, espresso and other dark woods will be on their way out as blondes and whitewashes steal the scene.
