Top 10 Flooring Trends to Help Improve Your Home in 2022
Home remodeling projects have exploded in popularity, with 2022 starting off as being no different. Whether you’re renovating your current home or flipping a rental property, flooring is the first step to increasing home value. To help you get started on the process, we’ve made a helpful guide on some of the most popular flooring trends of 2022. Here are the Top 10 flooring trends in 2022 that will add home value and excitement to your home:
Without a doubt, the number one flooring trend of 2022 is natural and raw-looking flooring. 2022 will see a rise in neutral colors and patterns moving back toward more raw and natural-looking materials. Natural-looking floors create the perfect backdrop for any room and help balance your space. Some examples of flooring that we like are Timeless Oak, Albright Oak, and Exquisite hardwood.
Luxury Vinyl Flooring
With improved technology resulting in more realistic-looking Vinyl Flooring than ever before, it makes sense why Luxury Vinyl Planks and Vinyl Luxury Tile made this list. Luxury vinyl gives homeowners that wood or tile look at a lower price point, not to mention they’re easy to clean, are waterproof, and are stain-resistant which is a major plus for parents or pet owners. Some examples that we like are Coretec Pro Plus, Vinyl Plank Natural Bevels, and Pantheon HD.
Finally, Vinyl and wood floors are seemingly the front runners for 2022 flooring top trends but, that doesn’t mean carpet flooring won’t make an appearance. Area rugs, carpet tiles, and frieze carpets are sure to be among the most popular styles this year. For parents and pet owners, carpet is also a viable option because there are stain resistant options. Our team has several different stain resistant options that we would recommend from known brands like Shaw.
Planks from 8″ to 20″ in width are generally considered wide planks. Along with natural colors and Luxury Vinyl Plank wood and tile, wide plank flooring is among the top three flooring trends for the year. Wider planks and longer sections of flooring have fewer seams, resulting in a cleaner, smoother look. Many retailers already carry a variety of plank width options, with more likely on their way in 2022.
For years, aged wood floors have been a prevalent choice across rustic and craftsman styles. If you’re searching for that vintage look in your next remodel project, consider the aged effect. This type of wood usually lasts around 25 years if taken care of properly and can help add value to your home. It is a more expensive product in comparison to Luxury Vinyl and some other modern types of flooring but is worth considering if it fits the style you are looking for.
Bleaching wood is nothing new, but 2022 is sure to see this style continue to grow in popularity. Bleached wood floors result in a whitened, softening effect. The neutral shade will fit perfectly with most other elements of your room.
Cerused wood is making a comeback after over five hundred years. This type of wood involves using a wire brush to dig out the pores and subsequently seal it with sealer and colored wax. A cerused finish creates a beautiful contrast between the surface of the wood and the grain. Traditionally, oak has been the number one choice, thanks to its open grain. While this may not be the top style of 2022, it’s sure to stand out among other options on this list.
Pattern Vinyl and Tile
A fun and unique trend we see emerging in 2022 are patterned Zig-zag for Vinyl Plank and Tile that help accentuate rooms like the bathroom or kitchen. These patterns are ways for homeowners to be able to customize a look and feel to their rooms if they’re trying to do something with multiple colors rather than one uniform color. These types of floors will continue to see their popularity rise in 2022.
Concrete flooring and tiles create the perfect clean, simple look for bathrooms, kitchens, and living spaces. This style of flooring fits in great with industrial and contemporary styles alike. Currently in 2022, costs for tile are higher than usual so polished concrete is a viable solution for home renovations.
Looking for a nice way to add an accent tile to your bathroom floor, shower, or kitchen? Graphic tiles can create a natural or bold effect on their environment based on the color you choose. Their geometric patterns have unusual yet stunning results. Universe and Utopia are the two styles our team would recommend
