When it comes to updating floor coverings, clients want something that is sturdy but stylish, and trends for interior designs change with the seasons. If you’re thinking of updating your client’s floors, take into consideration some of these trending floor covering ideas. Here’s what’s new in floor covering this upcoming fall and some easy tips to transform their home.
Hard Flooring Trends
Hardwood floors never go out of style. They’re easy to clean, look great, and are generally easier to maintain over time than carpet. Light Hardwood flooring in large planks is trending. When most people think of hardwood floors, they usually envision dark natural browns, but lighter wood shades are growing in popularity and offer countless opportunities for creative interior design.
Some homeowners prefer hard surfaces but don’t want to worry about wood-related issues, especially in older homes. Tile and porcelain floors continue to grow in popularity, and many of them mimic the appearance of hardwood. However, these flooring options are strong, resilient to damage, and generally easier to maintain than hardwood.
Carpets and Rugs
While carpeting can look fantastic in many different styles, more homeowners are opting for hard surfaces with area rugs in strategic locations. Rugs can be an inexpensive alternative, easier to maintain, and more versatile. Once you have carpet installed, there is no real way to change it without ripping it up and starting over. Rugs can be re-positioned and used in different ways throughout a home.
One of the trendiest styles is a muted acid wash rug with a pop of bright color, a fantastic accent for any room with a brighter color palette. If pattern is too much for the space or the client, try adding texture. For spaces that require a bit of texture, consider a plush shag area rug. We see this trend continuing to be a favorite among our clients. Shag rugs offer the client texture in the space without having wall-to-wall carpeting.
