Flooring has a large impact on the feel of a space and defining the style of your home. With so many options out there, which do you choose? Carpet? Tile? Hardwood? All can be splendid and luxurious. Here are five beautiful flooring trends for your home.
Hardwood floors are by no means new, but they are most definitely a classic. A trend that has seen a resurgence is parquet patterns, like chevron or herringbone. Along with finish and texture, a pattern truly makes your flooring unique to your home. It can add serious WOW factor.
Here is a gray wash wood plank in a chevron pattern.
And a dark wood plank chevron pattern. It really looks fabulous no matter what finish you choose.
And if you want to crank it up a notch, look at the spectacular inlays that are available today. This wood medallion in the works is just dreamy even unfinished!

Encaustic (Cement) Tiles
This may seem like a rather new trend in flooring, but encaustic tiles have been around for centuries. A carefully selected pattern chosen to complement your home’s style will make this a timeless and exquisite choice.
Love the Zahara – Gray Moroccan Cement Tile from ZocoHome. Perfection!
These graphic cement tiles give this entry a fantastic pop of color!
Salvaged & Reclaimed Wood
This trend is here to stay. The idea that you can take something centuries old and reuse it in a new and beautiful manner is just wonderful. The warmth and character these woods bring to your home are unequaled and the stories behind them are terrific conversation topics at your next dinner party.
The reclaimed wood floor in this stunning hallway is gasp worthy!
This reclaimed wood floor has been cut and designed in a checkerboard pattern. Amazing!
Large Format Tile
Large format tiles look perfect in open spaces and visually expand smaller rooms. It’s like magic! From rustic stone to sleek and modern finishes, they can suit any design style.
The clean lines and light color of this Tierra Sol ceramic tile are perfectly modern.
The Jaipur Brushed Limestone from Mandarin Stone is rustic & traditional.
Mixed flooring used to be only the result of transitions in spaces. For instance in an open great room, how to transition from the kitchen tile to the family room carpet/wood? Well, mixed flooring has grown up some and become a design choice unto itself. The creativity and character the choices can bring to a room are endless. Mix wood with tile in various shapes and sizes. Add a gold metal seam between tiles or wood slats. Let hexagonal marble tile run deep into wood planks. Tailor it to your style however you choose!
This kitchen is so airy & bright with it’s white porcelain hexagonal tile and grey wash hardwood planks.
A beautiful mix of wood planks & cement tiles eliminate any need for a transition. The floors just meld together.
These are just a few of the current flooring trends out there today. The versatility is incredible. My wood & tile floor might not resemble your wood & tile floor in the least! What a wonderful way to personally style your home.
