Three laminate flooring trends
Laminate imitates popular natural flooring materials like wood and stone. In addition to its good looks, homeowners choose laminate flooring because it:
● Is easy to clean
● Is always warm underfoot
● Resists scratches and stains
● Comes in standard and waterproof styles
● Is available in the trendiest colors, textures, and sizes
It's not surprising that gray has replaced beige as the in-vogue neutral color for all types of flooring materials, including laminate.
Choose a light shade like silver or a dark shade like iron, and you've got a great start to a palette that can include bright and bold colors, black and white, or any hue in between. Choose a light or dark hue for the most contemporary look if you prefer another color.
A textured, rather than a smooth, wood or stone surface adds an element of realism to the high-tech image that appears on multi-layer laminate planks and tiles.
Distressed laminate wood flooring has a weathered look, while reclaimed wood styles show off the beauty found in the wood of old barns or mills. Wirebrushed laminate styles have a lightly textured look, contrasting with more rustic handscraped styles.
Today, standard 12-inch by 12-inch tiles are less likely to be chosen by homeowners than non-traditional tile sizes like mosaic and large format. Likewise, favored plank sizes tend to be wider and longer than time-honored plank sizes.
So instead, choose random width laminate planks for the trendiest floor design or create a custom design with two or more tile styles that vary in color or size.
