2021 saw a big uptick in Canadians investing in renovating their homes. If you're looking to spruce up your place, where should you begin?
Why not start from the ground up and update your flooring? Beautiful new floors can be just as dramatic as a bright splash of paint and make keeping your place clean easier.
If you're looking to sell your home, getting new flooring is a great way to increase your property's value. It's one of the things that new buyers keep an eye out for.
Before you re-do your place, you need to know what modern floor trends are hot this year and beyond. Check out the Alberta Carpet Centre's guide to flooring trends.
Light Blondes Flooring
Dark flooring is out for 2022. The look is light, cool, blonde. Whether it's real wood, vinyl, or laminate flooring, lighter woods are in. They help to add more light to your space and open up an area.
The only con is that you'll see dirt and grime soon on light flooring. Make sure to keep your cleaning supplies handy.
Playing with Patterns
Patterns are going to be everywhere underfoot in the next few years. Think chevron parquet, tiles in a herringbone pattern, or painted tiles. Although this seems like it's not for the faint of heart, you can go as bold or as subtle as you need to. Consider light ash grey vinyl plank arranged in a chevron versus brightly painted wide tiles.
Still not sold on this idea? Try an area rug with a fun pattern on it to try it out before getting new flooring.
People are looking for ways to be greener and that includes considering the materials that go into building their homes. There are a few great eco-friendly flooring options to look at.
Cork floors are sustainable and are naturally termite-resistant. However, they don't do well in areas that get a lot of moisture.
Bamboo can be just as beautiful as a hardwood floor that is grown and harvested in an earth-friendly way. The only con is that it doesn't hold up as well as hardwood.
Despite these drawbacks, sustainable flooring is a trend that isn't going away any time soon. Keep this in mind when selecting the best flooring for your home.
Original and irregular wood floors add rustic charm to your home. Textures are popular in a big way for 2022. Handscraped and wire-brushed planks add an organically distressed look to hardwood floors. Carpet can have texture, too, so expect to see cut and loop and Berber carpeting to add dimension to spaces.
