Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Flooring

This year has brought many changes to the home design industry, and it has been a fantastic time for advancement in new technology and products. During a season of reflecting and recapping the year, we have compiled a short list of the most popular flooring trends in 2018. Let’s take a look! 

  • Waterproof FlooringWith today’s busy families, waterproof flooring comes to the forefront as a requirement that homeowners are requesting. Waterproof flooring can work great in areas like kitchens, family rooms, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and mud rooms. In the past, tile was basically the only flooring that could guarantee a water-resistance property, but now we have 100% waterproof luxury vinyl tile or plank flooring that looks just like wood or tile/stone floors.
  • Wood Look Flooring – With today’s technology, we have wood-like floors in luxury vinyl tile, laminate, and ceramic tile. Although this is not new, it has been extremely popular for several years and continues to grow and meet the demand of today’s homeowners!
  • Blonde FlooringBlonde flooring is here and looks fantastic with almost any design style, especially modern and contemporary. Blonde floors make any room look larger, pristine and airy! Gray and whitewashed floors are still popular and not going anywhere, so do not fret!
  • Eco Friendly FlooringMost homeowners are concerned with our environment and are very interested in where and how their flooring is manufactured.  Bamboo flooring is the most eco-friendly flooring and continues to attract the green thumb homeowner. 
  • Textured Flooring – As you probably already know, texture in home design and fashion is a big deal now. With technology processes, the flooring industry is producing floors with distressed, wire brushed and hand scraped appearances in wood, laminate, and luxury vinyl tile. Textured flooring makes the floor look more natural while adding to the overall design of the room.

Where to Begin When Buying Flooring

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Flooring, Hints and Advice

There is a perfect type of flooring out there for you, and you just need to find it. In the effort to help you narrow down your search, we have created four easy steps for beginning the process. Let’s take a look!

Where to Begin When Buying Flooring:

1. Consider The Type of Room.

When you are in the market for new floors, you will need to take into consideration the type of room in which you are installing flooring. If the room is prone to moisture like a kitchen or bathroom, you will want to choose a flooring material that is water resistant or waterproof. These features will help fight against accidental spills and humidity. If moisture is not an issue, you can choose any type of flooring that you desire!

2. Understand Your Needs.

Each homeowner will have a different list of needs for their space. Whether you have an active or inactive home, it will determine the type of durability you will need. For homes that are active, you will want a flooring with excellent wear resistance. Great durability means fewer scratches, stains, and dents.

3. Express Your Style.

Once you have your list of needs and the type of room, you can begin to narrow down the style and look that you want. From authentic hardwood to gorgeous natural stone, you have a wide selection of options to meet your needs and budget.

4. Plan for Installation.

Lastly, you will want to prepare for your installation. The installation day can be an extremely exciting time for homeowners, but we do not want you to get lost in the excitement. Before the installation, you will want to remove all furniture from the room. You will also want to follow any strict instructions for your new floors (i.e. hardwood). On the installation day, try to remain flexible with your timeline. We understand that you are eager to have your new space, but with every great thing, it takes time. Finally, if you have any questions or concerns about the installation process, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We strive to have 100% customer satisfaction.
