Painting is easy, so is getting new furniture, but new floors? You just don’t do that every day! So whether you’re trying to decide if you should refinish or refurbish your current flooring, or if you’re looking to install something new, it’s a good idea to think about choosing something that will withstand not only the heavy use your family (and pets!) will give it, but also something that will stand the test of time. We’ve got all the flooring trends that have come and gone and come back again so you can pick something that will give your home a timeless look.
1 – Travertine
Yep! It’s back baby. Sure we all remember how travertine, especially the light buff and sand-colored stuff, was everywhere in the early 2000s. Well it’s back and subtler than ever. Whether you’re looking for style, durability, or just something that can take a beating but still look great, this travertine tile floors may work well for you. Be sure to hire a professional stone installer who knows their stuff so your floors will last for decades.
2 – Dark wood
Whatever your flavor from dark oak stains to mahogany, dark wood flooring is definitely back on the menu. While the current dark color trends tend to stay in the grey and yellow tones, we’ve even seen a few red-toned dark woods popping up in magazines and on Pinterest. If darker tones are what you’re looking for, you might do well to go with a quality pre-finished wood which has a finish that can stand up to scratches and normal wear and tear.
