These flooring trends are up and coming in the US and may be the perfect option for your home.
- Bamboo is a great flooring option but be careful calling it hardwood, its actually grass! Bamboo flooring is a high end trend because of the beautiful color and the strength of the engineered bamboo flooring. Bamboo flooring doesn’t do well in rooms like kitchens and bathrooms but is great for the rest of the home.
- Reclaimed wood is also growing in popularity. Reclaimed wood can truly be reclaimed wood from barns, old buildings or any other source of it can be designed to look like reclaimed wood in the factory. The new factory finished product adds a lot of style and charm to the wood with hand scraping, saw marks, wider planks and other salvaged looking designs. The factory produced wood has a timeless look while being much more accessible and affordable.
- Cork is another growing trend in flooring because it offers the look of hardwood flooring but is softer and some people find it more comfortable to walk on. There are a lot of color options available for cork flooring and it is very durable. It can be susceptible to moisture damage and can fade in the sun.
- American hardwood is also growing in popularity and is considered a great sustainable wood flooring product. North America works hard to replenish the forest when they cut down trees for products like hardwood flooring. Some of the American hardwood options are oak, hickory, maple and heart pine. Bamboo and cork flooring are typically sourced from around the world.
These trends in flooring are a great way to add style to your home with great products. Hardwood flooring also adds value to your home so you can rest assured that you have made a good investment.
