Carpet looks have been getting more boring this past few years. The only note-worthy trend for carpets are cut-and-loop patterns, but nothing will beat wood, and wood-based design for this year. Here are MA flooring trends that have been popular recently.
Hardwood: If you’re aiming for hardwood, the best tip you need to know is that dark is bright. Hardwoods with dark shades give homes a contemporary but classy look, and are extremely popular for many high-end homes today. Dark hardwoods are ideal for kitchen floorings because they hide stains and dirt better. The fact that it matches the white kitchen cabinet trend doesn’t hurt, too. Gray shades also seem to be increasingly growing in popularity—it can easily go well with other colors, fortunately, so you don’t have to worry too much about interior designing. Aside from the shade, more exotic wood species like cherry and walnut seem to be the most requested lately.
Here are other flooring trends that are the talk of the town nowadays:
Vintage: Reclaimed wood looks are definitely popular choices for this year. While some people actually do use reclaimed woods (old and used woods), it may be a smarter option to just use hand-scraped woods, since they give off almost the same appeal at a lower cost. Reclaimed woods can give the house a homey and vintage feel to it, but surprisingly goes well even with a more modern interior.
Vinyl: Vinyl is also growing in popularity due to the endless design possibilities it presents. Printed vinyl can be made to look like real wood, marble, and basically anything you can take a picture of. Real wood may not always be favorable for certain reasons like termites, so vinyl is a good alternative for people with this problem.
Big and Wide: This year, bigger is definitely better. This means bigger planks, wider tiles, and larger rooms. Using bigger planks and wider tiles makes the room look bigger than it actually is, while also giving off a more rustic look. This is ideal for entryways and living rooms because they can help create better first impressions on your guests.
The key to a good interior design is a good base; in this case it’s your MA floor. With the right flooring, even a bare room can look stylish and elegant. If you’re not sure about which type of flooring you can use in your Massachusetts house, you can seek advice from flooring contractors like On The Level Floors and have them make suggestions. The magic of a good-looking home starts with the simplest details, so make sure to get the best flooring possible.
