Heading into the warmer months, now is the time of year many homeowners are looking to update and remodel. Flooring makes all the difference giving rooms a fresh look. Our experts compiled some of the hot flooring trends for the year, to inspire you for your projects.


Already a popular choice found in many homes, bamboo is available in many different styles and colors. Growing trends for bamboo flooring include a wide-plank style that mimics classic hardwood—going beyond the common, thin-banded styles. Manufacturers continue to develop new ways to engineer bamboo flooring, giving you a wide range of choices for your home.

Large Format Tile

Tile is a sturdy and beautiful choice for any room in your home. This year, larger tiles are becoming popular—think 12” x 24” or even 36” x 36” across the flooring surface. These tiles offer less grout lines to clean and look fresh and sleek. Installation of the large format tiles is tricky, and is best left to professional installers.


Like bamboo, cork is growing in popularity because of the expanding range of colors and styles offered. It is comfortable to walk on and has great acoustic-insulating qualities. New factory finishes are making cork more durable than it was, but can fade in sunlight.

American Hardwood

Cork and bamboo have to be shipped in from across the globe—and while they are quick to regrow, many homeowners are opting for materials that are harvested a little closer. Oak, hickory, maple, and heart pine all grow in North America and make beautiful flooring.

Our design specialists can help you decide if any of these trends are right for your home. Beautiful, professionally-installed flooring lasts for years and is a great investment. Be sure you get the best for your home and your needs, call us today!
