Flooring trends 2013
Break new ground this season with flooring trends for winter. You’ll be floored by how many things you can do with the ground you walk on.
Wood is one of the most timeless flooring applications, and 2013 has seen an increased amount of wooden flooring for its eco-friendliness as well as fine finishes. Hardwood is probably the most popular in terms of wooden flooring, followed closely by reclaimed wood. Engineered wood is also extremely trendy due to its resistant surfaces and reduced slippage.
Tiles are a beautiful finish and are brilliant in terms of keeping your floors clean. Tiles can come with anti-slip treatments or one can buy a special non-slip application. Tiles are not only popular for floors but are also used commonly in walls. Tiles are great for that shining floor surface that is easy to maintain.
Vinyl flooring gives the same appearance as wooden flooring at a fraction of the cost. Vinyl is fade and slip-resistant and is a highly durable material. Vinyl is also easy to install and is simple to maintain.
Linoleum remains, to this day, a popular and durable flooring material. Linoleum is one of the most durable flooring types and mimics the appearance of sheet vinyl once installed. This type of flooring is also extremely durable and lasts a very long time without needing to be replaced.
One of the most eco-friendly flooring options is bamboo flooring. Benefits of bamboo include:
- Strong and long-lasting
- Easy to install and maintain
- Quality product
- Easy to clean
With such a wide variety of flooring options, you can have the perfect finish for your home.
