If you’re building or renovating, consider using current flooring trends to keep your house looking great for years to come. From material and maintenance to colour and texture, here are five flooring trends that have grown in popularity in 2022 that you should include in your home:
1. Low-Maintenance Flooring
High-quality waterproof flooring is in hot demand as households look for low-maintenance flooring options that suit their busy lifestyles. In 2022, luxury vinyl is a top-trending flooring material due to its realistic appearance that can mimic natural materials for less. While luxurious Lauzon hardwood flooring will always be a popular choice, Beaulieu Canada and Torlys laminate can beautifully imitate hardwood flooring while providing a durable, budget-friendly and easy-to-clean surface.
2. Faux Stone and Marble
Add natural stone and marble-look flooring for a classic and contemporary home update. Modern-day vinyl planks can replicate the soft swirls of stone and marble to add a touch of luxury to your home without the price tag.
3. Colour and Texture
In 2022, we’ve seen an increased demand for light and airy colours. Trending flooring colours include shades of light grey, blonde and white, which reflect modern farmhouse style. Vinyl and laminate will often be hand-scraped, wire-brushed or distressed to add authenticity and hyper-realism.
4. Pattern and Layout
Households are opting for oversized planks that are longer and wider, giving the illusion of more space. Drawing inspiration from the ‘70s, unique geometric patterns are becoming popular for kitchens and bathrooms to express a funky bohemian vibe.
5. Carpet Tile
While hard surfaces are the go-to flooring choice in 2022, we have seen a growing interest in carpet tiles. Carpet tiles are a great alternative to wall-to-wall carpeting, which allows you to quickly and easily add the softness of carpet to a smaller area. Beaulieu modular carpet tiles are available in plank and square format in various colours to suit your space.
