It's time to talk about some hot trends in flooring, Lexington. 2017 was a very exciting year. We saw some pretty surprising trends emerge and, from the looks of it, this year isn't going to be different in that regard. So, our in-house designers here at Feel Good Floors put together this quick list of emerging floor covering trends to help you keep your finger on the pulse of Lexington flooring fashion. Let's get right to it!
The past few years saw an immense spike in demand for gray flooring that appears to be leveling off a bit this year. In its place, we have seen the meteoric rise of floor covering options that combine the colors gray and beige, which industry insiders have dubbed "Greige".
This color of flooring is part of a greater trend toward more neutral floor covering designs, that play well with a wider array of design choices throughout the rest of the home. If you're looking for a great way to add flexibility to the design of your home, because you're the type of person who likes to switch up their accessories from time to time without having to worry about clashing colors, greige may be just the thing for you!
Narrow Strip Hardwood or Laminate Flooring
Numerous sociological studies have shown that people tend to retreat into nostalgia during stressful times, or when the world at large seems uncertain. No matter what side of the political spectrum you happen to be on, we can all seem to agree that the world is a bit chaotic at the moment, and the tendency toward nostalgia during such times, is being felt in all aspects of our lives, from music and television, right on down to our choice in floor coverings.
This has led many people to make floor covering options that are considered by many to be throwbacks to the 40's and 50's, and narrow strip planks are coming out as a popular choice as a result. If you have chunky center islands, or bulkier, retro style wooden furniture, this type of floor covering will serve as a perfect contrast to those accessories.
Even though many people are opting for more neutral choices in their floor coverings, there will always be those who like to buck the trends. These people are tending to opt for more artistic, eye-catching designs.
Mosaic tiles, herringbone or chevron style wood floors, and mixed material floors, are starting to make a decent showing in the design world. If you want your space to have a little extra razzle-dazzle, you might consider doing something a little more adventurous with your floor covering.
